Engaged?! Really....?!

Andrew and I are getting hitched! I could have not gotten a more romantic and unexpected proposal. On Christmas Eve we went to see "Phantom of the Opera" at the Orpheum theatre. It was a great show, although a bit sad. We went home and opened our presents. He insisted on leaving the one he had handmade for last!
At this point I must say that I am very good at figuring out surprises. I can usually guess what each present is, just by looking at it. I think Naty and I posses this "superpower". As we got to the last present, I totally thought it was going to be a cute book or something like that. Of course, all the clues were there...he asked me to play romantic Christmas music, wanted to leave it till last...but then again, he was in his pajamas! So, I took a sip of my wine, and opened it...
They were invitations to our wedding! He designed them himself, and had 50 printed. For date it said: ?????? We are still trying to figure that out, but the cards were beautiful! They are also kinda funny and casual...no "curly" font or cheesy pictures. And, no ring! I specifically told him so. I like cheap, fun jewelry, and I rather spend money on life experiences with Andrew. I love the cards!
So, now we are engaged. I am very excited, and very, very happy to celebrate our lives together. We are planning a fun, casual ceremony at the beach (Baker Beach), and a fun reception or party somewhere. This is still to be decided, but we know for sure Andrew's mom will be marrying us. This is making it so much more special.
My family will be here (my mom, her husband and Naty), and his too. We will be surrounded by loving friends and family...and....I GET TO BUY AN AWESOME DRESS!! Yay!! What more could a girl want...?
