so… i became a fiancée yesterday.

story: he took me out for a nice dinner, during which i was expecting him to propose. he did not. i was slightly bummed, but whatever. i decided to let it go and enjoy the rest of the evening. afterward, we went over to our friends’ place to play board games, specifically settlers of catan (it’s one of our favorites). a little while into the game, dan proposed a trade to me.

"may i have your entire hand… for this sheep?"

"no, that’s an awful trade. why would i do that — i’m winning."

"well then… [takes out ring] may i have your hand for this?"

he completely blindsided me. i’d let my guard down since he hadn’t proposed at dinner. in what, i will openly admit, was not my finest moment, i called him a son of a bitch — but then i said yes (obviously).

so there it is. i was proposed to via a board game. and our best friends were there to see it. couldn’t have asked for a better proposal, couldn’t ask for a better partner.

Late night baking. 

Recipe. 
(Note: My ‘dough’ actually came out more like a thick brownie batter. So don’t freak out when it doesn’t get as stiff as a flour-based cookie dough.)
