"Will You...?"


In case the giant rock on my finger isn’t a dead giveaway, yes, I’m engaged!!! 

Kyle popped the question last Friday and since I posted the picture on Instagram (follow me at cupcakesomg), many of you have been asking for the story of how it happened, but I figure unless you're a good friend of ours, you've either already heard it or are just interested in the ring, so here's the highlights:

- Kyle asked me at 6:30 in the morning, when I was fully dressed and ready for work
- I had no idea he was planning it
- Yes we had discussed marriage
- Yes, I cried. I cried big, black, Tammy Faye Baker tears
- Everyone (my parents, Kyle's parents, our friends, my BOSS!) knew except for me!

At this point, we have made no decisions about the wedding as far as locale or exact date, so we’re allowing ourselves to just enjoy the next week or so before I get all Bridezilla up in here. Oh, and btw, I AM applying for Say Yes to the Dress (both versions!). No surprise to anyone, I'm sure.
{The ring is rose gold with diamonds all over the place!}  

Kyle knows me so well (as does my friend Ashlee who offered him some helpful guidance)--I couldn't have imagined a more gorgeous ring. It's all I can do from being distracted every 20 seconds and starting at my hand!! I mean, I can't even finish this sentence withoutkjdjkasjgdigjtiouwekncv8937981#$..................
{Kyle and me enjoying the first day of our engagement at the Inn at Little Washington, another surprise!}

Not to get sappy and junk, but I feel so incredibly lucky to be engaged to the most amazing man I've ever known and my best friend. I can't wait to see what life has in store for us. And my ring.

Wow... the different angles of this ring are so gorgeous. I didn't know it was ROSE GOLD. So impressed by him and so looking forward to this next chapter of your life. You are a very, very, lucky couple - he for having you and you for having him and you both for knowing ME! I can't wait to see it in person this month and I'm so happy. If you get on Say Yes, can I come?
