Thursday (March 7,2019)
My parents had been telling me that there was a dinner that my dad’s company was throwing so we had to go as a family. However, my dad is the type where he hates going out at night, prefers to sleep in, and if there is a dinner/party he will not go at night. Anyways that doesn’t stop there lol! My family knows that I make my own nails (yes people I do my own nails), and there is no reason for me to go to a salon. That day though, my mom was telling me my nails looked bad because I haven’t done them since forever, and made me go get a new polish. Due to the time I decided to skip the polish, buy some kiss nails (glue), and put them on FORGETTING that I am allergic to that glue. I went with my fiance to buy the nails though, and he looked suspicious lol!
Friday (March 8, 2019)
Midnight hit and my nails were itching bad, and they were so red! I woke up so scared at night, got some very hot water, put my nails in it, and I pop them lol! I know it was a bad decision cause then my nail plate got bad, and one of them cracked in the middle. So because of that I decided to paint ON TOP of the damage nails because I had a job interview in the morning. As the day kept going, my mom kept bugging me saying that I needed to redo my nails so I told her that I would just let it grow. Her response? NO! So one of my best friends (Katie!!) ha! She had her bridal shower on Saturday. So my mom goes on Saturday there is a bridal shower, and also the dinner for the company. On Friday night, she convinced me and off I went to do my nails.
Saturday (March 9, 2019)
It’s Saturday morning but it was kind of a chill day for me so I was like “meh” because I was just watching movies while cleaning the house. My dad though, had been EXTRA NICE for 2 weeks straight, but Saturday he was being too extra! He didn’t make me wash dishes cause my nails will get “ruined” for the day when knowing him he would had told me to do dishes a long time ago lol! My other best friend Roro, her husband, and mom came to pick me up to go to the bridal shower so we were off. During the party, I started to have a feeling that something was going to happen later on that day. I have seen Roro texting like crazy, and telling me she was texting Chilly (my other best friend & her cousin). So I was getting very distracted but that feeling in my gut didn’t go away lol! As the party was ending, I saw my girl Katie smiling even more because DUH! she was happy that her bridal shower was a success!!! Also, because I did not know that roro and katie knew what was going on….roro was NOT texting chilly…..she was texting Carlos my fiance!!! like WHAT?!?! lol!
What happened & How he asked – Saturday Night
As I go inside the house, I was rushing to get ready and to my surprise I see my mother’s best friend there saying “she was going to the dinner too.” so huh? lol! I ignored that and went on to get my other clothes ready for the night, but not even because after 15 minutes or so the bell rang. My dad goes and opens the door and I come out of my room super clueless and guess who I saw? YUP! I saw Carlos, his family, and in the back Roro was laughing with her husband Armando -_- Guess who forgot her Spanish and English? I DID! Ya’ll I was so speechless! So my man starts with his speech telling me that he loved me very much, and much more that I forgot because I was too nervous to even grasp what he was saying lol! He got to one knee and asked me to be his wife….my answer? DUH!!!!! YES!!!! Of course the family and friends cried, and it was just a moment I will never forget. Before he gave me the ring though he gave me flowers so I was like “awwwww” lol! And as soon as we were done praying and our parents talked to us, we started eating ya’ll! Oh I also went crazy on social media and updated everything! lol! Keep in mind I didn’t eat so much at the bridal shower because I was also thinking of the dinner of the “company”, but really we ended up eating cake lol!
Sunday (March 10, 2019)
We went to church and only some people knew (the ones who have Facebook and Instagram!), and to my surprise the pastor presented us to the church, and everyone prayed for us so from that moment on I knew it was very official. When a couple is presented to the church, and being blessed under the eyes of the Lord then that is when it’s really real. The weekend was a good one!
