Some BIG events have occurred since I've been away, DFH proposed and we are so excited to say we are Engaged!
DFH and I have been dating for six + years, so I have been waiting for this day for
A few Friday's ago I had plans with Steel Magnolia to grab a few drinks at a local Pittsburgh restaurant after work. KLS had texted me earlier in the day to say she would pick me up at home after work. I told her I just needed to run home and change out of my work clothes. ( little did I know DFH had KLS in on the secret)
DFH had told me that he was working Friday night, which is normal, so a proposal that night never even crossed my mind.
Instead, I opened my apartment door after work to find this:
Pink and Green balloons lining the hallway with pictures of DFH and I starting from the time we started dating continuing up to present.
All of the doors down the hallway were wallpapered with pink and green ( my favorite colors) tissue paper.
On the side of the wall read Memory Ln. in blue, meant to look like the street signs in our neighborhood.
When I opened the door to the apartment, I was in complete shock, I looked down the hall past the balloons to see:
I walked down the hall opened up "Forever Ave" and DFH was in our living room surrounded by more pictures of us, balloons, flowers and champagne :)
....And then he proposed!!
Right after the proposal, still in work clothes haha.
All cleaned up and ready for dinner :)
After calling friends and family we headed to dinner at a delicious restaurant in our area where DFH had made reservations.
I was so excited and in shock I can't even tell you what I had for dinner.
We ended the night at SOBA one of our favorite Shadyside bars with
too much more champagne and friends :)
