We're Engaged!

Thursday, November 21, 2013

You may have noticed a new shiny accessory on my left hand recently. Well, Tyler and I are engaged!! Today marks 3 weeks of being engaged. I am going to share all the wedding planning details on my blog, starting first with the proposal.

------

Tyler and I had been talking about getting engaged for quite some time before he popped the question. I had a feeling it was going to happen before the end of the year, I just didn't know when. The morning of Halloween, Tyler said "We probably won't have many trick or treaters at the town home tonight, so do you want to go out to dinner and then make caramel apples and watch a Halloween movie?" I figured those were our plans and was completely shocked when I got to the town home after work to see the inside of the house all decorated and Tyler down on one knee.



Tyler, with music playing and candles lit, asked me to marry him on Halloween. He said he wanted to catch me completely off guard since I knew it was coming soon. (He was very successful!) He said he didn't want to propose on a weekend because then I would be expecting it, but I would never expect it on Halloween. He was right, too! During the month of October I started to get suspicious about when it would happen. As each weekend approached I wondered if this would be the weekend that we were going to become engaged. Not once did it cross my mind that it could happen during the middle of the week!



After he proposed and we got those diamonds on my hand, Tyler presented to me a Halloween card. The card normally said something like "It would be quite a treat to get scared this Halloween." He crossed it out so it said, "It would be quite a treat to get engaged this Halloween." On the inside of the card was one of the most beautiful letters Tyler has ever given to me.



After we had a glass of wine at home, we went to dinner to celebrate being engaged. The proposal was perfect for us. I had told Tyler awhile back that I wanted our proposal to be something intimate; something over the top with a flash mob was just not my scene. He did an amazing job making it special and just for us two. What makes it even better is that he secretly filmed the whole thing.




We can go back and watch the special moment over and over again. I love that we have it on film. Although, I am particularly embarrassing because of some of the things I say in the video! I was in such a state of shock that he proposed that all I keep saying in the video over and over again is "Oh my gosh! We're engaged!" The emotions didn't come until the next morning when I put the ring on and Train's "Marry Me" came on the radio on the drive to work. (Yes, I pretty much started crying on the drive to work.)



I'm so excited about this new stage of our life and I cannot wait to document wedding planning and wedding festivities on the blog. Follow along here or on Instagram (@ _darcyylynn_) to see us become Mr. & Mrs!

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  53. Such a cute proposal! And congrats! Wedding planning is such a fun and stressful tume, but when I look back on it, I have all fond memories. You forget the times you just want to scream at the top of your lungs and call the whole thing off! (Just the huge ridiculous wedding, not the marriage itself) But now that it's over I am SO relieved! It feels so good to never have to worry about a DJ, or photographer, or centerpieces again! But enjoy every moment because it's truly a blessed time! :)
