Our Engagement Story

Thank you again. For all the kind words on our big news! We are so excited to begin this new chapter in our lives together!!!

Now for the story you all have been waiting for! It still doesn’t seem real! I am still riding the high and loving every second of it!!! The day was so special I just hope these words convey half of how happy it was!

Friday as you know Mike and I headed to Maryland’s eastern shore for a weekend getaway. He had told me to take off a few weeks earlier since his mom had won a great deal to stay at the Hyatt in Cambridge, Md. I of course hopped on the idea and didn’t think anything of it!

As the day approached I was excited for a weekend away. Things had been so busy in our lives and I was looking forward to some time alone with my best friend!

That day ( Friday) we woke up, worked out, relaxed, and were on our way to Cambridge by 9:45 am. On the way to the hotel, we stopped at the outlets for a quick shopping trip! I got great deals and some really cute new clothes! 🙂

After the brief shopping trip we were back on our way!

When we arrived at the Hyatt I was blown away. I’ve never seen such a beautiful hotel, let alone stayed at one! When we checked in we dropped off our bags, looked around and put on our bathing suits! We immediately headed out to the little beach and relaxed for the first bit of our trip!

Around 1 we started to get hungry so we stopped at the hotel restaurant to grab some lunch!

We shared nachos, a salad, and a chicken sandwich! Lunch of champion vacationers! Vacation lunch wasn’t complete without a cocktail! This was so good! Recreating soon!

We spent hate rest of the day napping, lounging at the pool, playing basketball in the pool, and taking in the amazing views. Before we knew it it was 4:30 and we headed back up to our room to relax before our dinner reservations. We watched a few episodes of friends and took turns showering and getting ready.

By 5:40 we were ready! We decided to walk out and check out the marina and docks before our dinner reservation. (Only I didn’t know I wasn’t a part of the decision, this was his plan all along!) As we walked along the docks we took in the sights and the beautiful siping setting. Before I knew it Mike grabbed my hand and was on one knee!!!

To say I was shocked is an understatement. I’ve never been so utterly speechless in my entire life! Of course when he proposed I said yes! It took me a minute to stop shaking to even look at the ring!

Once we got settled down he told me to call my parents. As soon as they picked up the water works began! I was so emotional! He also called his parents. We started walking back towards the resort and he told me he had someone from the hotel coming to take our picture. But, I looked to the left and saw both of our parents standing on the hill waiting to celebrate with us! I have never been so happy!

The rest of the evening was filled with dinner with our families, pictures, and calling everyone we knew to share the news! It was such am exciting day! To top it all off Mike shared how he has been looking for houses for us! There are so many changes coming up and I cannot wait to begin this new chapter with my best friend and soul mate!

Here again are some pictures from the evening!!!
