So much has been going on! I've been MIA for 5 months... I'm so sorry. Clearly this post was a long time coming. But don't worry! I'm still here. :)
To be honest, I haven't decided how to handle blogging wedding stuff... I don't want to ruin anything pre wedding day but I'm sure there will be so much that's bloggable over the next year! So let's just take this one event at a time.
First things first-
I wanted to make sure the family got to hear our story first hand before putting this out there but I think it's safe to finally share our romantic night.
You should all know I've been a giant butt to Casey since my birthday back in February. Big, big jerky jerk face butt! I could tell right around New Year's that there was a definite shift in how we talked about our "somedays." So like any crazy girl, I got suspicious immediately of every date night. Since February there have been quite a few date nights and needless to say I grew more and more frustrated each time nothing happened. He kept saying I wouldn't see it coming but I told him that was impossible for someone who was expecting it every day.
We had a trip to visit his family coming up and that only added to my stress about it. Our last date night before the trip was the 4th of July and I was a snarky little brat when I could tell it wasn't happening. I could try to make excuses for myself and explain to you how we don't get to see his family often and I wanted to be able to celebrate with them. And I did apologize to him! I didn't want him to think I was mad about it. I was excited! I was just trying to make peace with knowing we wouldn't get to share the event with his family for a while if it didn't happen until after the trip.
So I did!
I got excited for our trip and I went about my work week!
2 days till the trip, I had a great night at work, and I got back to the dressing room after the last show, and this-
I tried not to jump to any conclusions, but come on! So I put the dress on and tried to hide the fact that on the inside I was going a million miles a minute.
What I didn't know was that there was so much going on leading up to that night.
And in that way that only he can, he put together the perfect moment for us.
But he had a little help...
Across the way from where my show is, he was in one of the resort cabins with my sister making sure all the little details he had planned came together.
He also had friends and family help him out too...
And then eventually, I got off work and my brother-in-law drove me over to the cabin...
I was in the happiest of hazes from the second I walked in and moment for moment, everything was absolutely perfect.
So here's a little peek into what it was like, courtesy of my sister as the fly on the wall to capture it. We wanted it to be special, just for us, and that's exactly what it was.
So there it is. The moment I was waiting for in a way I never saw coming.
