What being ENGAGED really feels like!!


I got engaged a month and a half ago on my 25th birthday, with the most romantic dreamy proposal on the beach. That evening I got ready as it was my birthday dinner which Dale, my boyfriend at the time had organised a romantic sit down dinner at a beautiful restaurant down the coast. I walked into the restaurant looking all fly, wind blowing in my hair and my eyebrow game on point! Well so I thought. With him carrying a man bag, not that I noticed something stuffed in the saddle bag.

 I didn't realise this whole plan would come into place the way it did. He surprised me with a Tiffany and Co cake, which was suppose to be the hint of what was to follow but if you know me by now, you would know how oblivious I am to anything. Dale was not nervous at all, and you know after watching so many movies you have a perception of how an engagement should happen or would like it to happen. Nonetheless that didn't phase me I was just there to enjoy the dinner and company with the love of my life. 

There was a point when he excused himself from the table and went to the bathroom, at that point they brought out the cake and the owner then asked me to walk towards the balcony to take pictures. So I did as he pleased and overlooked the beach and the waves lapping on the shore, blinded  by this amazing experience I missed the sign on the beach with the proposal message. As I turned my head, Dale was on one Knee with the ring in one hand and there I was frozen, confused, stunned and so excited. He points to the sand to see if I saw what was written on the sand and I look down to  message saying "Will you marry me Sims". All I could do was laugh, scream, jump, nod my head and hug him and then say YES!!

That was my prefect proposal and now I'm engaged to be married to the love of my life and I couldn't have it any other way!

I hope you enjoy these hilarious GIF's I found on engagements and what its really like being engaged!
