So basically I had the best week of my life, regardless of the cancer and feeling tired and sick from radiation. My boyfriend came down for Valentine’s Day, and while people don’t generally get sick so close to the beginning of radiation, my unhealthy diet was making me sick. Anyway, for V-Day, he took me to the Museum of Natural Science, the Water Wall of Houston, then we went to dinner. The Water Wall was beautiful; first time I had ever seen it.
Saturday was the date I planned. I was going to take him to a hibachi, then to Pinot’s Palette (my side of the date). We got to the hibachi and it was closed 🙁 So we went to Applebee’s cuz it was next door. The to paint. Then after I got home and woke up from my nap my mom was like, hey we’re going to the Water Wall, it lights up at night. I was like, I’m good I went Thursday. So Al came in and said, I need you to come because no one was there to take pictures of us when we went the other day. Here I am, as clueless as a bat, and a 20 minute drive literally took one hour and 15 minutes. I have NEVER seen him so angry. He was like, YOUR MOM IS GONNA BE SO MAD THAT SHE DOESN’T HAVE PICTURES BY THE LIT UP WATER FALL!!! I said, don’t trip y’all. We’ll come back tomorrow. Everyone thought I was stupid for not knowing what was going on. Lol.
Anyway, we went after church Sunday taking a bunch of pictures until he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was shaking so hard, my heart was racing and I was crying. I’m still so ridiculously happy 🙂 What a joy to be with someone who has been my best friend for 7 years, seen me at my worst, my best, my hair the nappiest, the prettiest, when I’m the rudest.. lol. What a life 🙂
