Oh What a Beautiful Night

I have to say, I'm pretty sure I have the most romantic engagement story of all a fairy tale literally!  It was New Year's Eve 2009.  Adam took me to Shula's Steakhouse in Birmingham, AL, and we enjoyed a wonderfully cooked, delicious meal of salads, steaks (obviously), and dessert to die for!

Being the social butterflies that we are, we went to my parent's house after dinner to watch the ball drop in NYC on TV.  It was going great until I decided I couldn't hold my eyes open anymore.  Anyone who knows me will tell you I'm lucky if I can stay conscious past 11:00!  Little did I know, he had big plans in mind that did not consist of me making his arm numb and drooling on his good shirt.

He had planned to take me up to Red Mountain which overlooked all of downtown Birmingham.  We eventually made it there...only after we made a few unplanned detours because Adam forgot how to get us there.  Once we made it though it was beautiful!

He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  Most of it is a blur (literally) cause I couldn't see through all my tears!  When a girls waits for close to 4 years to hear those words, it's pretty overwhelming and hard to believe.  But BOY was I happy!!!

                              This was the most amazing view and a perfect setting for Adam's proposal.

                                                  Exactly what I wanted! Way to go hubby! xoxo
