Happy May Everyone!
Sooo.. I'm Engaged! Trevor proposed on Feb. 29th 2020 and it was the best day ever.
I have been looking forward to giving all the details and writing about this for the past couple months, but I have been very preoccupied... but now that I am back and better than ever - I'm comin in hot with the news!
Anyways lets get straight to it! February 29th was leap day! In case anyone didn't know. It was a Saturday and Trevor spent the day working while I spent the day with my family. It was a great day! My family and I went to City Barbecue for lunch ( please go there, its amaze-balls) and Trevor called me that afternoon and asked me on a date. He told me to dress nice and I remember telling him no on the phone lol. I drove over to Matthews, NC where he lives and we left to go get dinner at our favorite sushi place, New Zealand Cafe (also amaze-balls - please go there too).
We had to wait to be seated for about 30 minutes when we got there because its a very small and busy place, but once we got seated we were pumped and ready to do some serious business. I also have to mention that the tables in that place are like centimeters apart so we were getting friendly with the couple beside us. I mean that literally, we were sharing life stories and practically eating off each others plates. Half way through dinner I got up to use the restroom and apparently during that time Trevor had pulled out my ring that he had hidden in his jacket, and showed the couple. From there, their conversation went something like "So yeah I'm asking her tonight!!'' "What no way congrats !!" And then I came back and I didn't suspect anything out of the ordinary so they did a good job wrapping it up just in time. We finished our dinner, said goodbye to our new friends and headed to get ice cream at Marble Slab - another gem. While we were waiting in line to order our ice cream I brought up the topic of getting engaged . Now let me just say we had talked about marriage often and we even had a timeline we both were comfortable with but I still had no idea it would be then!! I thought it would be at least a couple more months before he would pop the question. Trevor later explains (after he proposed) that he got super nervous because he thought I knew but really I was just drilling him - per usual. I kind of forgot his response to me asking so many questions about when we would get engaged, married, etc but it was along the lines of "why are you asking me so much, just trust me".
After ice cream, I thought we were driving back to his house but he pulled his truck over abruptly between two little shops where there were lots of Christmas lights still hung up and random (not romantic) music playing. Trevor told me to get out and practically drug me over to the lights and random music.. there it started to hit me but I really thought it was a joke. He obviously was trying to be sweet and talk to me and be sentimental but I couldn't stop laughing and I kept telling him to shut up. I am so mean, also I wore jeans and a flannel ...and in my head I was seriously beating myself up for it. I can't be getting proposed to in this outfit, but he gave me a warning and I decided to be stubborn. Please, take it from me ladies - if your man tells you to dress up for some reason, any reason at all..just do it.
Anyways, as I'm laughing, the music changes (not planned) and it felt perfect. Trevor gets down on one knee and tells me loves me and asks to marry me. After several "shut ups" I say yes and feel utterly shocked but very happy. It was a wonderful night and I was so surprised. We ended the night by calling my parents (had to wake them up out of bed) and lots of happy tears. Along with going back to Trevors house to announce the news to his family. We feel so supported and so excited to start this journey together. I am thrilled to be able to share it with you all!
