March 9, 2012 : For months, Jeremy told me that he was taking me on a surprise trip for my birthday. He started the weekend by coming to my house, waking me up, and bringing me breakfast in bed. Sweetest boyfriend ever.
Next, he handed me a note to give me a hint to where we were going for the weekend.
I figured out that we were going to Sea World and FREAKED. OUT. I screamed and squealed and woke up all of my roommates. I absolutely LOVE whales and I nearly cried tears of joy. Jeremy also gave me a season pass to Sea World so that we could go whenever we want.
Halfway to San Antonio, we stopped at Buc-Ees. It’s almost impossible for us to drive by without stopping, especially since they have Big Red Icees.
We stayed with Jeremy’s aunt and uncle while we were in San Antonio and when we got there, Jeremy had arranged to have flowers in my room. Sweet, sweet man.
The first night that we were in San Antonio, we got dressed up and Jeremy surprised me with reservations to my favorite restaurant.
We even splurged for dessert : banana spring rolls with pineapple-coconut ice cream.
Little did I know, my fortune was foreshadowing what would happen next.
After dinner, Jeremy took me to the Riverwalk to walk around and see all of the lights. It was so cold outside and pouring so we ducked under a bridge lit up with Christmas lights to stay dry. The next few minutes were the best minutes of my entire life thus far….
HE PROPOSED!!!!!! I get to marry my very best friend in the world and I could not be happier. Hands down, this was the best birthday present I have ever received. Jeremy told me later that he did not plan what fortune was in the fortune cookie. Totally a God thing, y’all.
So, long story short, I’M ENGAGED and I will become Mrs. Jeremy Petticrew on September 22, 2012! :D
