There’s no better way to say this other than:
I’M GETTING MARRIED TO THE MOST AMAZING MAN EVER OMG PASSOUT!!!!!!!
Now that we have that covered, I suppose I should share a little back story, eh?
I will need to retract my comment that online dating is bullshit. I got a message around the time of my last post here & he passed all the basic superficial requirements. A 6’3″ PhD wielding Brit? Yes please! Turned out he’s actually funny & smart & generally pretty cool. You know, all that silly stuff. 😜 I walked away from our first date with one very clear thought.
I’ve met my husband.
Lucky for me, he felt the same way. Now for the part everyone wants to hear. How he officially put a ring on it.
Last Saturday a week ago (July 25), six of us went to play zombie laser tag. A haunted house had set up their space so their actors were wearing the laser vests & everyone tried to not get infected / run out of ammo before the end. Once you got to the front & learned how to use the guns, they sent you to a little holding area. I turned around to give Mark (the future Mr Emily) my phone to put in his pocket. When I turned around again, he was down on one knee. In spite of my insistence on not being girly, I gave him the girly reaction he was looking for. I found out later that he told my dad right as we got into the holding room that he was going for it. Sneaky.
I do have pictures & I will post them when I get them on the right the device. Until then, feel free to use your imagination.
And for those keeping score at home – our first date was June 25. 😘
