My real life fairy tale..

So, if you follow me on instagram, twitter, or facebook, you have already heard the news. 

drum roll please..........

Sam put a ring on it. That's right, we're engaged. I can hardly believe it myself.

Sam has been dropping hints for about two months now. Now if you've ever been around Sam he has been playfully asking me to marry him since about a month after we started dating, so I have never really taken the hints too serious until about two weeks ago when he told me he had already talked to my parents. My birthday is in December and he kept saying that he was planning the best birthday surprise ever, to bring my camera, and to buy a new dress. So deep down I knew that was more than likely when it was going to happen. Then he would say little things that made me think it was going to happen at Christmas. He had me all confused. I NEVER in a million years saw this coming. 

I have had a pretty sucky week. My car messed up, and when they told me yesterday it would be 400 bucks to fix I was a little discouraged it being right here at Christmas. There were SO many other things I could do with 400 bucks. THEN as soon as I woke up this morning I got another call......I bring in my car to get my radio and battery fixed for 400 bucks....and now its turned into a 1,300 dollar procedure. Right. Before. Christmas. FABULOUS. So needless to say I was bummed, but what can you do? I need my car, so I will suck it up and pay it like a grown up does. Boo. 

Sam came over around 11 and we were planning on going Christmas shopping. I figured why not get that out  the way before anything else happens. Feeling pretty bummed out I quickly took a shower, threw my hair up, and put on some warm clothes and scurried out the door. I could tell something was up with Sam but I never expected this, I honestly just thought he knew I was irritated so he was staying away. I kept asking if he was okay, over and over until he stopped answering. We stopped by his house for a few minutes and loaded up the car. Well Sam lives very close to the beach, so he said he needed to get gas and it was cheaper on the island. I was a little confused but I didn't say anything. He drove right past the gas station. At this point I thought something was wrong. He said he needed to show me something. He pulled over to a beach access and asked me to get out. It was freezing and drizzling a little so I knew if he was about to walk in this, something was way wrong. I still at this point didn't expect a thing. We walked a little on the board walk and all of the sudden he is kneeling in front of me with a looked an awful lot like a ring box. He opens it up, and sure enough there's a ring. I just remember asking over and over if he was kidding. I was so shocked he finally had to ask me if it was a yes or no. Of course, it was a yes.

I am still in a little disbelief. I was not expecting that at all but it was the most perfect moment ever. I always said I would see it coming when he decided to do it. When Sam gets nervous he huffs and puffs, he paces around, and he gets really quiet. All the things looking back now I saw him doing at his house right before we left and I still never thought twice about it. It was perfect. He's my best friend and I can't wait to start this journey with him and both of our families.
