We're Engaged!!

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  forever  a little while hahaha, however I was completely surprised when the big event happened.  DFH sure pulled one over on these eagle eyes. 

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 :)

Perfect night!
