The 2 Big E’s: Easter & Engagement!

Happy Humpday!

I am long overdue for a post. Some new and big things are happening in my life that I am dying to share with my readers! If you follow me on social media, then many of you already know. But for the rest of you… I just got engaged this week!

My boyfriend fiance proposed to me on Easter in front of my family. I am the hardest person to surprise so this is sort of a funny story. He originally wanted to propose to me in New York City aka my dream city, but it would have been too obvious since it’s hard for us to take a day off work to travel up there. Then he thought he would be sweet to propose to me at our favorite location in Gettysburg overlooking the battlefields. So he called off work and arranged for this to happen, but of course me being stubborn and difficult I didn’t want to go down. I am literally the worst person in the world to surprise haha!

Instead, he decided to surprise me on Easter with my family around us. His original plan was to have an Easter egg hunt for me, but I said I was not hunting eggs unless there was money in them. I know, I know… I’m a terrible person lol! So he numbered the eggs from 1 to 14 and each egg had a sweet message inside. Once I opened up number 13, he grabbed the last egg from my basket, got down on my knee very nervously and asked me to marry him. I was speechless and kind of blacked out for a few seconds haha but then I said yes! I’m so happy we’re engaged and that my family could be there to be a part of it. Hopefully he learned his lesson for future surprises and to let ME plan them ha!

Before the engagement went down, we colored Easter eggs together. Of course, I picked up 2 boxes of Marvel egg kits since I’m a total nerd. We made really pretty eggs and decked them all out in stickers… Iron Man & Spider-Man! Then we got up early Sunday morning and got ready for church. After church, we went up to my mom’s for lunch where she made the cutest bunny bread ever! I almost didn’t want to eat it, but alas, I took the rabbit’s foot lol. Apparently, that brought me good luck because an hour later I got engaged πŸ™‚ yay!

We left my mom’s and headed over to my aunt’s for even more Easter celebrating. Everyone loved the ring (as do I) and it was just a perfect/gorgeous day out. Got some sun, had a Easter egg hunt, and I got to see the baby! Apparently someone decided to hide an egg on the roof… I certainly was not capable of climbing up. I can barely reach the cabinets in my house.. short problems and all. It was the perfect day and I’m still thankful I got to be around my family and new fiance. It still doesn’t feel real. No big wedding plans yet, as I want a long engagement. So stay tuned for news on that!

Also, either today or sometime this week, I will be posting about the 21 Day Fix. I’m currently NOT a BeachBody coach anymore, but I still love the products. A lot of people have been telling me to try it so I dived in and just ordered it for myself. I’m currently on day 3 and loving it. So I’ll be posting details about that and I’ll also try to keep this thing updated more. I’ve been slacking, no more excuses!

UPDATE: I will not be posting about the 21 Day Fix this week as I will be participating in a challenge group starting next Monday. I will be posting weekly about that and my progress. Stay tuned!
