After a year and a half of dating, Dan finally popped the question and this is how it went! Enjoy!
It all started with a girls trip to Vegas (as many great stories begin haha). A couple of my best friends and I planned quick Vegas escape for Memorial weekend. I have always wanted to stay at The Bellagio and amazingly my friends were able to hook us up! (I later found out Dan had booked the hotel for me) We had a fancy dinner planned for our first night. The weekend was going to be full of shopping, relaxation, and girl time…..or so I thought.
What actually happened was, we got to the hotel and started to get dressed up for dinner. I decided to save my favorite dress for the next night because it was going to go perfect with the red lipstick that I was going to buy, and chose to wear a more casual dress. One of my friends insisted on the first dress though. She insisted so much that she went down stairs to buy a red lipstick so I could look just the way I imagined. Now that we were all looking our best, we went downstairs to the Olive restaurant which sits on the shore of the famous Bellagio lake. The waiter took us onto the balcony and I was instantly amazed with the beautiful dancing fountains. But then I noticed that the only table available had two chairs (which was wrong because there were three of us). I instantly started looking for the waiter to fix the problem but before I could even move my two besties made me turn around and look toward the fountains again. And there he was! My most favorite person in the whole world was standing right in front of me this whole time! ( I looked right passed him the first time… the fountains were so cool though!) He told me how much he loved me and tons of other amazing things that I don’t remember because the whole time I was trying to make sure this was real life. But it was! He pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him. I’ve been waiting for that question since the day I met him. He put that GORGEOUS ring on my hand and I instantly started crying (I still haven’t said a word yet cause I literally was speechless). Everyone was waiting for a yes, but Dan already knew my answer haha. I said yes of course!
Now there’s a little behind the scenes story that I wasn’t aware of till after all of this. Of course as you may have predicted, the girls trip was a ruse… everyone was misleading me the whole time. And Dan was in Vegas preparing for the night that whole day. In fact he was the one who found, bought, and gave my bff that red lipstick, that I had really wanted to go with my favorite dress.
Thanks for stopping by!
