When I woke up yesterday morning I had no idea it would be such a great day. It couldn't have gone more perfect. As I wrote in yesterdays post I was content and it only got better from there. It wasn't too long after I wrote my blog that Michael had texted me on his break at work. He asked if I wanted to go out to eat for dinner and I said sure. When he got home we left not too long after. I asked him where we were going to eat and he said he wasn't sure. We always have a problem with deciding things like that lol - It's always a "you pick, no you pick" kind of scenario. On the way to town he pulled into a parking lot and I asked what he was doing. He said he heard something weird with his car and he wanted to check it out really quick. I didn't think anything of it and stayed seated in the car. As he's looking at his car outside I hear him yell "hey come help me with this" so I got out and when I walked behind his car he was on one knee! It was so sweet and I soon realized nothing was wrong with his car. The parking lot just so happened to be the same parking lot we met years ago. Of course I said yes! Well actually my first words were "are you for real!" lol and then I kissed him - I was so shell shocked that I didn't even remember to say yes until we got to the restaurant!!!! He took me out to eat a fancy dinner at Alice's Restaurant afterwards. I got shrimp! The meals were great, everything was perfect. Later on we realized that yesterday was the "21st". I am really superstitious and the day we got together was October "21st". Yesterday marked 5 years and 4 months for us. The number 21 must be our lucky #! Also Wednesday night before I went to bed I was laying there and looked over at the clock and it said "11:11"; they say to make a wish when you see that and I did. My wish the night before was to have a good day tomorrow. Little did I know someone cashed that wish in for me! I will remember yesterday for the rest of me life. I never thought an ordinary Thursday could have been so great. My proposal was everything the little girl inside of me could have asked for. We don't have a date set, in fact it still seems surreal! I know i'd like to wait at least a year to save up $ and plan :-)
I decided that I am goign to switch my cheat days to Thursdays now. I didn't get a full workout in yesterday and we went out to eat. I cheated and I ate deep fried shrimp, french fries, a meatball, bread and salad for dinner. This morning I had my lemon water and a cup of coffee with 2 eggs/wheat toast for breakfast. I am not sure what I am going to have for lunch/dinner.
I can't wait until my FIANCÉ gets home from work.
