My Non Traditional Engagement

A year ago. . .

Well, he said I couldn't tell anyone about it and I'm bending the rules (a little). I've got a ton of emotions running trough my body right now. Excitement and nervousness all bundled up in one. One big pretzel of feelings!!

Late last night, Dustee and I were up watching Bridesmaids (that movie never gets old to us), and we both had our share of drinks. It's something we do on Tuesday nights when we don't have our children. We make dinner, have a few drinks, enjoy each others company, and make it a Netflix night.

Anyhow, all of a sudden he jerks up on the couch and yells out, "I've got it!"

Nothing out of his norm, of course.

"We will have a surprise wedding! We can send out fake birthday invitations and when our friends and family arrive we can formally announce that we're getting married!"

"What?" I finally asked, still very much perplexed by all the rambling that was coming out of his mouth.

He continued, "Yeah, mmm, in two years from now. They'll show up to the party and we can have someone married us there. They'll never see it coming. But you can't tell anyone Perla!"

And just as he exclaimed that to me he sent a text message to one of his best friends and asked him if he wanted in our secret. He granted me permission to tell one other person. So I chose his best friends wife. Once he sent that text message I kinda knew he was 99.99999% serious. I then jumped on his lap, wrapped my arms around his neck and started kissing him all over his face.

Sometimes I get this overwhelming rush of loving emotions that I just have to give away. I get on top of him and he always says, "Oh shit, here she goes." And I start kissing him over and over and over and over again. And I tell him to quit his yapping and just let himself be loved.

"Just let yourself be loved Dust. Don't fight it." And he sits there and takes it.

Then it kind of hit me (a little late) and I asked him, "You're saying you want to marry me?! As in you're my husband and I'm your wife? Does that mean we're engaged?

And he said, "Ummm kinda, yes, I'm 110% sure I want to marry you." And then he got another one of my love attacks.

And here I am writing about it, writing it out in the place where I'm so accustomed to expressing my feelings, where anyone and everyone can read it. Thing is. . . this will be saved as a draft until after my wedding. So if you're reading this, just know that I waited a very long time for this post to be released. I couldn't be happier right now. I get to marry my best friend and my soul mate.

PS. I'm quite sure my Dad would approve of Him. I see so much of my father in Dustee. It's so heart warming.

Thank you God.
