People have been asking when we are getting married or at least engaged and I finally have an update for you. We’re engaged!
We have been talking about getting engaged for a while now. We both knew we’d eventually get married but we weren’t in any rush. So how did it happen?
Since we had been talking about getting married for a while and she had already picked out a ring she knew we’d be getting engaged sometime in the next year. I’m not the creative type but I was told I have to come up with a good way to propose so she’d have a good story.
I couldn’t think of anything so she told me to “Google something”… go figure. Google should solve all of our problems!
Well, I couldn’t think of anything until last week. Then the idea hit me. I’d use cupcakes! The problem was I’d have to find a time to cook them when she wasn’t around without her being suspicious. The only time I could think of was while she was working.
I made sure to leave work on time so I’d have three or four hours to pull it off. I stopped and got the ingredients on the way home, made the cupcakes, iced them and wrote WILL YOU MARRY ME? with one letter on each cupcake. I put the open ring box in the middle and covered the cupcakes with a cake saver so she couldn’t see the message or the ring.
She always calls on her way home from work and I told her I had made a tasty present for her. She was still clueless and I told her she’d have to wait until she got home to find out what it was.
She came home and it took her a few minutes to discover the cupcakes under the cake saver. When she finally looked she was very surprised and happy and of course she said yes. So, we’re engaged!
What Does That Mean For Money Life and More?
Nothing is going to change. I’m going to continue writing about personal finance but now I’ll have even more experience to write about!
I’ll be able to discuss how we’re planning on having a small and frugal wedding, how we’ll combine our finances when we get married and many other topics I haven’t been able to discuss from a personal perspective before.
So now you know!
Any ideas of topics you’d like to read about or things I should keep track of for future articles? What did you wish was different about when you were engaged and planning your wedding? Any tips? Let me know!
