The Proposal

Basically my proposal can be told in pictures.. So here it goes with a little details included!

Sitting in the room before heading to take pics with the photographer... My mom calls this my last un engaged pic, she's silly! She took it by the way, knowing what was about to happen....

Me smiling at the photographer and Brian trying to talk to me..... me not knowing what was going on at this point still!

And he dropped to one knee....

Me trying to put the ring on and obviously crying like a baby...

I remember all I wanted was for him to stand up, haha!

He finally stood up!!

And off we went to the Dining room for dinner! I'm so thankful for my parents being there and being in on the whole thing. I told Brian 1 thing I wanted when we got engaged was if possible to have pics of it and he did it :) what a great Fiance I have!!!

The photographer came around at dinner to take pics, of course I had to hold my hand up!!!

So there you have it ladies, my dream engagement to my dream Fiance!!

I couldn't of asked for a better proposal!

So give me some thoughts, I'm thinking of using one of the prof pics we took that night at the Save The Date so kinda our "engagement pics" but def wanna take more in several months, as I plan on loosing 60 lbs before the big day, so I'd rather wait and take our engagement pics after I loose a lot of weight!

Lots more to come....

Love the new layout! I can tell you are SUPER excited! hehe. If it were me, I'd use a picture I took later on as my "real" engagement pics (that's what I did) just so you can have more to choose from maybe!

What a great proposal! Definitely a keeper! I cried like a baby too when Mr. Milk proposed. And then kept crying everytime I told someone about the news!

The pictures are wonderful, I agree having the whole thing documented is amazing! I used our proposal pictures for our save the dates, it was easy and of course adorable. We didn't even take engegment pics b/c we had so many, and I can relate to the weight issue with the pictures, i wasn't happy with my proposal pics at first b/c I was 20 lbs heavier than normal...but now after losing the weight and looking back I dont care at all what i look like in those pictures b/c they were so wonderful and in the moment. Your's are so wonderful and you will always cherish them so I wouldn't worry about how you look in them...besides you are being hard on yourself, you look so beutiful in all of your propal pictures, just plain beautiful!

I thrilled for you two- I love this post and think it's great to have these pictures. I know you want to shed some weight before your wedding(don't we all!)- but just remember you are beautiful TODAY....obviously Brian thinks so too. Just remember to enjoy each and every second of this time. I am excited to see you.

I really am so happy for you! It is such an amazing feeling! It is great to have pictures too! That was something that I wanted also, and I was lucky enough to even get the video lol. The pictures are in a scrapbook ready for when my little girl gets older so she can see the love story of her mom and dad unfold. I wish you all the happiness in the world in your new journey. The fun really starts now with the planning! You are such a sweet and beautiful person inside and out and you deserve a lifetime of happiness!

Congrats again!
