Hello Sweet Cheer: We're Engaged!

We're Engaged!

Helllllo my bloggie friends!  Happy October!  I'm so glad the season is really beginning to change.

     Well, it's official!  I am engaged to the love of my life, Ryan.  He is the most wonderful man I've ever met.  He loves me so well and points me to Jesus daily.  I couldn't have asked for anyone better to be my partner for the rest of this life!  His care for me is unmatched with anyone but my Savior.  I can't wait to be Mrs. Holguin and to get to call Ryan my husband!  I love him so so much.

He asked me on September 29th, 2014 and this is how it went....

     I got home from work about 5:45pm.  I walked into my bedroom to find a note that said, "Dinner tonight?" and half a dozen roses on my night stand.  One of my favorite outfits was laid out on my bed complete with jewelry options and a clutch!  I immediately started bawling as I realized what was about to happen.  I curled my hair and got all ready and Ryan picked me up around 8pm.  We went to Abuelo's for dinner, the same place we ate on our first date!  Dinner was so yummy and so much fun.   We slurped down our last Dr. Peppers together until the wedding.  (We had already talked about giving up DP during our engagement, he's really just supporting me, he's so sweet!)  We spent time talking about all the funny things that happened that first night and just enjoyed each other's company.

     After dinner we drove out to a neighborhood called Vintage Township, where they have a really pretty outdoor fireplace and terrace.  We walked around the park once and then sat down at the fireplace and turned the flames on behind us.  We talked and just spent some time enjoying the moment.  Ryan started to talk about our relationship and how thankful he is for me, and lots of other sweet things.  He then asked me to stand up, and after a few more words he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!  Through a lot of tears I said YES!

Here are some sweet pics!








Afterward, our sweet friends had us over for wine and cheesecake!  And lots of pictures and smiles and congratulations!  It was such a fun night and I'll remember it forever! 

We'll be married on January 10, 2015 and we are thrilled!  We're counting down the days.  (it's 97, by the way)  In the meantime, you can check out or wedding website here!

XOXO
