Scavenger Hunt Sunday {2 25 2012}


On Friday, AJ had most of the day off, but he had to run to work for about two hours, and I took the day off.

He asked me to go for a walk by the lake to take pictures of the skyline after he got home from work. But turns out, he didn't actually go to work, and he had a very special question to ask me :)





Crossed
 We crossed Lake Shore Drive to get this picture of the skyline from across the lake.

A Glimpse
I got a glimpse of this duck just as he took off from the water!

Handwritten
I hand wrote our version of Friday. AJ is going to write his this week so I can create a he said/she said scrapbook page about our engagement.
Mine says:
"AJ took the day off on Friday, but he had to go in for two hours (side note: he did not go to work, he went to get my ring). I took the day off too, so when he got back from work, we went for a picture walk along the bulkhead by North Ave. AJ asked me to take his picture in front of the skyline, then he looked at the picture and asked me to take it again. While I was getting ready to take his picture, he took off his gloves and said, "Wait, I think I have something for you." I thought I knew what he had, and my heart skipped a beat. I asked, "What are you doing? Are you doing what I think you are doing?!" He knelt down and said, "Do you remember how I told you I knew I loved you the night we met? Well, I knew something else too. Whill you marry me?" I said yes and AJ and I kissed right next to the lake, with our city skyline watching over us. It was absolutely perfect."

Bliss
Just after we got back from our walk on Friday (because I may have been so dazed that I forgot to take a picture of us by the lake!)

Gray
The sky was very gray, but my engagement ring is very sparkly!!

I hope everyone else had a great weekend as well! I'll be back tomorrow with more A Day in the Life later this week, and a catch up on how that whole make your own bakers twine thing worked out!
