i*e: an engagement

Last night Ian proposed to me! I was COMPLETELY shocked and amazed and flustered and speechless and thrilled and all of the above!

We went over to my friend's house for what i THOUGHT was a dinner party for all of our friends, we walked in, and there were candles lit everywhere, an autumn themed party set up with a cake and appetizers and all of my friends were there to surprise me! I thought it was an early birthday surprise party and I was so excited and then I turned around and Ian was on one knee.

He held the ring box out and that moment is still kind of a blur because my mind was racing so much, and then he asked me to marry him. :] of course I said yes.



An engagement party with all of our friends immediately followed. Drinks were consumed, loud music was played and great party conversation was had by all. It was SO much fun and just the perfect way to propose ever.

My friends were all so amazing! Tori helped plan the party and hosted it at her house and it was just so magical!

The ring is gorgeous and perfect for me. He did SUCH a good job picking it out! It's GORGEOUS! It's white gold and there are 11 diamonds: 3 main ones, 6 accent ones, and then 2 on the inside of the band. On the inside of the band The words "Past" "Present" and "Future" are engraved and there are 2 diamonds separating the words inside. SO special! There are also little cut out hearts on the side of the setting. Gorgeous!

I love him so much and I'm thrilled to be able to do all of this with him! It was an incredible experience and everything was just so perfect. :] Hopefully I will be able to post more pictures soon! There are ones of the engagement party and the cake and me with the girls, etc. I will get those up soon!!!

I just can't believe I'm engaged!
