HE PROPOSED!! AND SHE SAID YES!
Yep, you heard it here first, Heidi and Phil are engaged!
We'd decided to have a quiet weekend on account of having a short supply of cash, and so I was instantly alerted when Phil asked if I could get off work early on Friday. He said he'd changed his mind about not going out on the weekend, and so I knew what was coming, having previously discussed getting married
And it is beautiful. Just what I always wanted - nothing flashy, nothing massive that's going to get caught in the tea towel when I'm trying to get the roast out of the oven causing it to tumble to the floor and ruin a perfectly good meal
So we went off to the hotel (after a quick stop at H&M so I could grab a little singlet to go under my dress), I got changed and we were showed to our table. We had a lovely meal, candlelit (oooooh loverrrrs!) and then got thinking about what we would do afterwards. Phil was working overtime in the morning for a few hours, and so we agreed that we'd go home and drink the bottle of sparkling that I'd had in the fridge since my birthday, and then call family and friends. When we got home my stomach was doing somersaults after being churned and full of butterflies all afternoon, so I had to make a trip to the bathroom before we popped open the Jacobs Creek (too much information?). But when I opened the fridge, my eyes were drawn to the bottle of Veuve that was resting in the door, and I was excited that Phil had remembered a conversation we'd had a few months earlier. In that conversation I suggested that if we were ever to become engaged, I'd want a bottle of Veuve to celebrate. I said to Phil "awww you remembered!" to which all he could say was "well, it was my prefer..." before I cut him off and firmly said "no, you remembered!" and burst out laughing! Whether he'd remembered or not, it was perfect because it was just what I always imagined.
So who would've thought hey
And to think I scoffed before I left Australia when everyone said that I'd meet the man of my dreams over here!
I stand corrected!
