Throwback Thursday--Engagement Day {1.21.12}

Wow! Thinking back on this day seems so long ago!  It was Saturday morning and my friends and I were planning on going to the Camarillo outlets.  I went to pilates with a coworker that morning and was planning on wearing my workout clothes to the outlets, especially since it was rainy!  My friends insisted that we dress up a little so we can take pictures.  "Ughhhh I thought, if you really want me to change, I will". So I changed into jeans, boots, and a ruffled coat.  My hair was still a mess though I didn't want to fix especially if it was such yucky weather.  My friends were taking foreveeeeeer to get ready, so I decided to start cleaning the house.  I was emptying the trash when I heard the door bell ring.  One of my roommates yelled, "It's the UPS. Steffi can you get it?"  Only to find Jordan nervously standing at the door.  Here is the video clip of him at the door.  It's really funny.

I sound ridiculous, but I was in complete shock.  As we were driving to lunch, I still had no idea he was going to propose.  We walked on the pier in Santa Monica and I noticed Jordan was acting a little weird.  That's when it hit me.  I thought, "Is he about to propose?"  Minutes later he got down on one knee and popped the question!  We then went to lunch at Shutters in Santa Monica, it's beautiful!!
After lunch he surprised me with a manicure!  Then to top it off, my family and friends surprised me with an engagement party!  I will have to find the pictures from the party, it was SO fun!

One month later, I flew to Georgia and sweet Ashah took our engagement photos.  Here are a few of my faves!

I love you James Jordan Wood.  Saying "yes" was one of the best decisions of my life!
