On July 29, Sean and I headed to Disneyland. This is the third time we’ve gone together and I was excited to spend the day with him at the happiest place on earth. We knew we were going to be there later because we were meeting some friends there so we left around noon and got there around 1PM. We started the day off at California Adventure. I was super excited to check out the updated “Soarin” ride, so we got fast passes for that. We rode a couple of rides and then headed to Paradise Pier. Little did I know that Sean had a secret up his sleeve the whole day. He ended up proposing to me that day and it was perfect.
After we played the games at Paradise Pier, we were trying to find ways to kill time before our fast passes were valid for “Soarin”. Sean asked where the bathroom was so I led him there. He asked me if I had to go and I said no. We got there and I decided to go since we were there and while I was using the restroom, Sean snuck off and set up a time for us to get a caricature done. I was waiting for him in front of the bathroom when I saw him running towards me. He told me we were getting the caricature and I was excited because I thought it’d be cute for us to have one together.
The artist told us where to sit and then she got started. She was really cool and had some good conversation while we were getting it done. When she was done, she asked us take a look and as soon as I looked at it, all I saw was “Will you marry me?” on it and I started freaking out. I was shocked and didn’t know what to do. It took me a few minutes (felt like forever) before finally saying “yes!”. She asked me if I wanted to write it in the bubble and I did. Everyone started clapping, meanwhile I was trying not to cry. He put the ring on my finger and it’s so beautiful. Sean knows how much I like Disneyland so for him to do it there was perfect. I couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day.
The Rest of the Day
After the proposal, we rode the new “Soarin”, which by the way is amazing. Then we headed to Disneyland. I was really wanting to try the vegetarian gumbo, which also happens to be vegan, and it was delicious. We rode a couple of rides and met up with some friends. We left around 10PM and just came home and enjoyed each other’s company. I still can’t believe I’m engaged. I’m so happy that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Sean is an amazing person and the fact that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me makes me feel so lucky.
