Well . . . It's Official

If you follow my twiiter, you may already know this . . .

In my last post, I mentioned going to Catalina Island with the BF and he proposed and I said yes :) so I am officially engaged. I have to admit, I was really, really, really suprised - now that I look back on it I should have seen all the signs, but I'm glad I was so oblivious to it all because the weekend was perfect.

The proposal:

We arrived in Catalina, on the ferry Friday from Long Beach, CA. The Island is amazing, and if you ever have the time to go visit, I highly reccomend it. It feels like a little slice of the medditerian in California.

We arrived, and checked into a lovely bed and breakfast / boutique hotel. Spent the rest of the day walking around the small shops.

After a lovely and romantic dinner, we walked out to the beach (about .5 mile away) and at first I was like um.. I don't know about the beach at night - what if it's not safe (this comes after being on a law and order kick for a few months - hehe ) but he was insistant on going - so we arrived - sat at our own lil cabana table and out of the blue he gets oh so serious and then before I know it - hes down on one knee - "states my whole name (whichis quite long) and asks me to marry him"

I of course was teary eyed, and suprised and amazed, but I muttered out a yes and well the rest is history :) !! We spent the rest of the weekend just relaxing on the island, and kept it to oursleves until Sunday or so :)

You might see a lil shift in this blog, due to the circumstances :) Watch for wedding, planning and decorating ideas in the near future.

I will blog pictures soon, I have had a lil mishap with my laptop and well, I can't really upload at the moment. Just thought I would share the good news with all of the lovely people who take their time to read this blog, or my tweets.
