She Said Yes!!!

I know it’s been months since I posted last.  I don’t tend to bake a lot when it’s 90 degrees outside, but I’ve been itching to bet back in the habit lately.  And boy did I have a great reason to get back to it!

Another engagement between two amazing people, Andrea and Justin, who just happen to be great friends of mine!  Now that he has proposed, I can finally say that I was so excited to get to be a small part of proposal.  Justin is easily one of the most thoughtful guys I’ve ever met, and he cooked up quite a surprise weekend for Andrea in Asheville, NC.  I got a message from him that started like this…

So I hope you are able to keep a secret because I am going to let you in on a big one. I am getting ready to propose to Andrea. And I need a little help from you to set the stage….

I froze.  I work with Andrea and she sits pretty much right behind me.  I wasn’t sure if she was there or not when I was reading the message, but I also know I am horrible at containing emotion on any level and I was not about to ruin this surprise, so I just didn’t move until she left the building.  Which luckily was only 10 minutes later, ha!

The “little help” he needed was for me to delivery a surprise mystery package to her without her knowing where it came from.  It was a box filled with some hints for an upcoming weekend – including one saying she needed to pack a bag and request off October 10th from work.   I am a horrible liar yet somehow pulled off quite a show when she asked if I knew where the box came from that magically appeared on her desk.  Who me?  No, Andrea, I have no idea how that box magically appeared on your desk once you FINALLY left for a moment to run to the bathroom 😉  (Thank you to everyone on our side of the building that didn’t rat me out btw)  Now I just had to keep my mouth shut for 3 more weeks.  No. Big. Deal.  What?!

Their weekend was a great success and these two lovebirds are going to tie the knot!!!
