The best birthday ever.. I'm engaged!

 So yesterday was quite possibly THE BEST DAY EVER.
It was my 22nd Birthday.
My 7 year anniversary.
And.. my Engagement day!

Remember how I told you that we were going
fishing yesterday morning?
Well you know that song by Trace Adkins- She thinks were just fishin'?
That song became the theme song of yesterday.
And it came on the radio while we were on the way there.
Little did I know..
[KP] had this amazing plan.
And it turned out so fabulous. Seriously, best day ever!

The boys bringing out the sign.

And hanging it on one of the largest bridges in our area.  

 It was 40 ft. long!! 
And.. this is what it said..

These photos are a reenactment.
We do have actual photos from up on top of the bridge but
I haven't gotten them yet, so these will do for now :)

 We got in the same spots we were in before.
Except I think [KP] was on the lower deck. 
It's amazing how much I don't remember because I was in so much shock! hah.

 Love this picture. Definitely framing this one.

 Look how red my face is! I was nervous. Note to self- take antihistamine on wedding day.

Remember this post about my engagement ring choices? 
Well he picked my #1 choice!

 It is so gorgeous. He did such a good job. 

My grandmothers stone is in this ring which make it so 
much more special. 

On the way to dinner!

 We already had a birthday dinner planned for my 
family and some friends. 
Little did I know it would be an engagement celebration too!

 And my new Clare from the Lilly sale arrived just in time! 

 So glad Preppy Wife Preppy Life could join! 

 And my friends [AG] & [MH]! 

 Here's Preppy Wife Preppy Life and [MK]! 

Love my Nursing ladies! 

[KP]'s Mom and Dad got me this lovely Lilly bag that was on my list! 

Clearly my friends know me way too well..

Soon to be KLP <3 Thanks Preppy Wife Preppy Life!! 

LOVE THIS SHIRT that she got me!

Both of our families.

Our favorite newlyweds [JD] & [JD] from The Duke and his Duchess also came!
[JD] helped [KP] get his sign and paint it! 

Our friends [BB] and [AM]! [BB] also helped [KP] by 
holding the sign up on the bridge along with [JD] and his mom and my brother! 

[KP] loved his gift!! 

It was such a great day that I have been waiting for for a long time!
I am so thankful for [KP] and that he took the time to plan 
something truly special that included things we both enjoy. 
He is seriously amazing! 
And ... [KP] had a lot of help!
I am also SO thankful for all of our wonderful family 
and friends forwithout them this day would not have been possible. 

Tomorrow I am off to Alaska for a vacation with my family! 

Little Miss Southern Love.
