The day I got engaged was the biggest surprise ever, and I am a very hard person to surprise! I'm always super on top of things and I catch on quickly. That day Shay was acting really weird but he told me he had to hang with the guys and they were doing something cool he needed to bring a suit for. Hmmmmm. . .OK.
So I get to my photoshoot and it's a legit photoshoot. Nothing weird going on. The fact that my friends had a hand in helping just made that day that so much more special. Ariana and Pandora are so awesome to help make this day so amazing! It is weird to watch it back and see Stassi so "happy" for us that day, because I wouldn't have expected that and I still am not sure it was completely genuine.
Seeing Shay so nervous before was soooooo cute. I cry every time I watch it back. I can't believe all of this was going on while I thought I was doing a photoshoot! When I saw the ring in the bubble container I was like, "oh my gosh!" That was the cutest most thoughtful thing ever! A few years back when we were dating, I told him when he was ready I wanted him to go old school junior high and ask me to be his girlfriend officially. It's hard when you're an adult. Do you have the "talk"? Do you assume you're exclusive? I told Shay I wanted to know for sure. And he was so cute -- he went and got me a little ring and asked me officially. I still have that bubble and the ring in a special place at home.
I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting or day the way things happened. Like I said I am a very hard person to surprise, so I didn't know how he was going to pull it off. We had been talking about marriage since the day we started dating, and I may look young but I am going to be 30 next year so I told him if he wants little Shays one day he needed to get on it!
The proposal was everything I ever could have dreamed of and that much more!!! Who wouldn't want to be proposed to in the middle of a mountain on a gorgeous day in Beverly Hills!?!
For me to say "winning" in comparison to the other relationships at SUR I simply meant I'm coming out on top. Katie talked s--- to me at Peter's birthday, Stassi is the girl who wants to be married but hasn't found the right guy, and Tom and Kristen is a story in its own. I am happy! I am in a great healthy, normal, sane, and loving relationship -- and I hope and pray the others can be as happy as I am one day! I would absolutely love to be at Katie and Schwartz's wedding one day. And I hope Kristen and Stassi find their happily ever after too!
Switching gears, I found out about Tom and Ariana when Kristen texted me the day Tom told her. I called Ariana and told her verbatim what Kristen told me and she said it was true, but she didn't tell me because it was JUST a kiss a couple years back. I get it. I'm sure I haven't told Ariana everything I did years back. It's unnecessary information. Once it was becoming a thing, I'm thankful she didn't tell me the truth. Then I would've been in a terrible position with the girls every time they asked me what I knew. Ariana wasn't going to do that to me and I am so thankful. I could truthfully say I didn't know anything instead of lying for my BFF. That to me is being a great friend by not putting me in the middle. I do not feel betrayed at all. I understand why she lied. By her lying to me I guess technically, I was lying to everyone but I wasn't because I didn't know it was a lie. To me what I said was the truth. End of story.
