Hey Friends! Sorry I was a bit MIA last week, but it's because I have BIG news (which many of you already know):
Drumroll please. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Viet and I are engaged!
We got engaged a week ago tonight. We were celebrating our third anniversary, and we had dinner reservations at one of our favorite restaurants in the city, Zazie.
Viet came home with many sweet surprises:
and a very sweet card.
I was completely touched and already getting a little teary.
Then Viet said that he had had trouble deciding which card to give me, and that he wanted to give me the second card too.
so he hands me this sweet card:
and i looked at it for a long time, and then he grabbed both my hands and started saying sweet things, and I lost it and started crying.
It was perfect and touching and amazing.
Then we headed to our reservation. I was in shock and kept looking down at my hand and then to him and then down to my hand and then to him. I couldn't believe it had happened.
I promised Viet I wouldn't call anyone until after dinner, so that we could just enjoy the moment.
We were both so excited we could explode.
I decided I needed to document the moment by taking picture of everything I possibly could. Viet said I looked like such a tourist, but I didn't care. I was like I'm engaged!
We got the appetizers (which of course I took pictures of):
Then I might have mentioned that it was getting really late in Alabama. So Viet gave me a Parent Pass and let me call my mom and dad.
During dinner he gave me a brother pass to call Dirk.
And during the dessert I got a Grandparents Pass.
look at this dessert:
It was pretty awesome. did i mention I took a lot of pictures? check it out:

Once we got home, and I had called close family and friends in the car, we celebrated with the neighbors and cracked open the Veuve! We had to:
oh wait. one more.
