We got engaged on November 7, 2009 - exactly a week before my 22nd birthday. He planned the entire day and it was amazing. We went into the city and went to the bronx zoo which was really nice because neither one of us have ever been there before.
This is us at the Bronx Zoo.
After, we decided to walk around Central Park. Again, we have both lived on Long Island for our entire lives but have never been to Central Park. We were having a great day but I could absolutely tell that he was getting a little nervous as the day progressed. We ended up in Shakespeare's Garden overlooking a pond. The area was a little secluded and we walked while looking at the water. Some time went by and Beav told me to turn around. As I turned, he was down on one knee and said, "I wouldn't want to be here with anyone else but you. Would you marry me?" Of course I said yes!
This picture was taken seconds after he asked me <3
My Beautiful Engagement Ring <3After making a million phone calls to our family and friends we still had more planned. We always talked about going to the sex museum so he included it into the day. It was an experience but it is not that cool. At one point, we were in a room with about 20 other people all just looking at porn. The museum was fun but I have always found even funnier the fact we went there the day we got engaged.
After, the museum we went out to eat at our favorite city location - Bubba Gumps. Then, luckily a bunch of our friends were in the city for a friend's birthday already so we met up with them and celebrated. It was an amazing day and the best part was he planned every detail himself. I truly can not wait until I can call him my husband <3
