I met Nate when we were both juniors in high school. We had a few classes together that year, some where we sat next to one another which could be taken as both a good and a bad thing (grades may have been effected). After talking and flirting for the first two months of school we starting dating on November 10, 2000... Yup that means we are well on our way to our 10 year dating anniversary... It has flown by mainly becuase we both have focused most of that time on furthering our education. Nate finished his college career in 2006 when graduating from Temple University with a degree in Biology, which he no longer uses as he now works at a family owned and operated company... but he's happier there and that's all that matters! I just finished my bach. in Architecture at Drexel University this past December. I was told a ring would come when the degree was completed...(ring will officially be mine sometime in early feb when the jeweler is done setting extra stones in what was his grandmother's engagement ring!) So me being the over planner that I am started the planning research for our big day... In early January I was told that you don't need a ring to buy a dress so that's just what I did... after the purchase of my dress we agreed upon a date!!! December 4, 2010 will be the big day for the two of us, I am so excited to finally marry my high school sweetheart and be his MRS!
In order to keep certain details under wraps, I have made most of my pages Friends Only... So feel free to add me and take a peek!!!
So it finally happened yesterday! We now have our very own unique engagement story. I spent all day yesterday cleaning for company that was coming over later to celebrate my upcoming birthday, I was just about to finish up a little after 2 when Nate came home from running up to his dad's house. I was swiffering the bathroom floor and when I turned around I saw that Nate had followed me in and was getting down on one knee while holding open the ring box. He didn't lie when he said he'd make it memorable! I of course didn't answer right away, I had to first ask to make sure he was being serious... he was so I said YES!!! Now I can officially start the planning, no more sneaking it in... I am sooooo excited I just can not wait. Oh and I am having hard time looking away from this ring!!! I just love it!
and here it is on my finger...
