If we’re being honest, the last thing I want to do today is be positive. I’m finishing up my last day of Clomid with miserable sweat inducing hot flashes & an emotional system of an overly tired two year old. And then I remembered why I started Favorite Things Friday to begin with. We need positivism so badly in the world of infertility. We need good news. We need some sunshine in our storm filled days. We need laughs. We need a whole lot of hugs. & we need our favorite things.
So here goes round 2 of favorite things Friday:
The way my husband proposed.
The way my hubby proposed to me could’ve put Nicholas Sparks to shame. It couldn’t have been any more perfect.
I unexpectedly got my first, “clue,” at the start of my hair appointment & the second, along with my tiara at the end.
Needless to say I was pretty intrigued at this point. When I got home, I noticed a strange car in front of our house that just so happen to belong to a friend of mine. She was waiting to pick me up with another clue that instructed me to find a new dress from H&M in our coat closet. Once I got re dressed, we headed to get our nails done, where I got my third & forth clue, Cinderella shoes in tow.
After that, she hurriedly put me back in the car to go to our final destination….a horse & carriage.
Amadeus (the horse) then rode us to Gratz park where Scott was standing….& then the, “hunt,” was over.
When hearing about it, a lot of people ask me how I didn’t know something was coming. It’s simple: I thought Scott was messing with me. A few months before that, he fake proposed to me at the end of a Big Brother episode. After that, I decided I wasn’t going to take him seriously any more until I actually saw a physical ring.
The proposal I never dreamed of getting had everything I’d always hoped for but never imagined actually getting. It had a horse, I got a spa day, Starbucks, & I was a Disney princess for a day with my tiara & sparkly shoes. Oh, & did I mention I’m in absolute love with my ring? There’s that. The only thing missing was the fairy Godmother but hey, who can complain? I’m sure she had other princesses to save that day.
I’ll never know what I did to deserve you, buddy but I’m sure glad I got you.
