I AM GETTING MARRIED!!

I'm sure most of you who follow me on twitter will already know this but my boyfriend Gray proposed on Thursday!  It was a total shock, I had no idea he had been planning it and had been to design and buy a ring and everything.  How scheming ;)  Anyway I've been asked about the proposal a fair few times so I thought I would document it here as it's much easier than trying to explain it by text, or 140 characters.

I had been to fat club (aka Slimming World) for my weekly weigh in when he sprung into action.  He knew I would be gone for an hour and a half and that there was no chance of me coming back early and catching him mid set up.  I pulled up outside our home and noticed that the hall light had been left on which is really unlike Gray.  I unlocked the door and shouted hello and turned to see the following signs...





 I pressed the correct button and a little video set to The Wannadies you and me song started playing and I read the following:



 There were lots of photos of me at this point!



 Lots of photos of Gray at this point....



A few photos of us at this point and I hate them all!! 





 I was in floods of tears by this stage!! Obviously I knew he was hiding in the bedroom which he had decorated with fairy lights and candles.


 Apparently he was on one knee but it was such a blur I can't really remember!  I had to ask if he had actually popped the question as it all happened that quickly.



I can't believe he managed to choose this ring all by himself, it's totally perfect for me!
We have spent this weekend deciding on potential dates/venues/guest lists and have our fingers crossed for the most perfect venue which we viewed earlier today.

I AM SO EXCITED!!
