Internets, I've been holding out on you...

Our trip abroad was amazing.  Having never been overseas before, it was fantastic to be able to experience other cultures and meet so many new people.

On the plane getting ready for the flight

After arriving in Barcelona super jet-lagged (the boyfriend didn't sleep a wink on the plane!), we decided getting a little exercise would be a good idea since we were too early to check in to our hotel, so we set off to hike up Montjuic.  Montjuic is a big hill right in the middle of downtown, and is where the '92 Olympics were held.

At the start of our hike, still excited for walking

We first went to see the Olympic pools and the stadium, which the boyfriend was super excited about.

We then headed up to the top of Montjuic where there's a castle and lots of cannons to play with.

The boyfriend kept ducking off into weird corners and into turrets.  I eventually stopped following him into them because I was so tired.  I was just going to snap the picture of him below and move on, but he said I should come down and look at the view out of the window.

When I turned around, he was down on one knee!! I took one look at him with a ring in his hand and my head went a little fuzzy so I missed pretty much everything he said, but I got the gist what he was asking me and said yes.  We're officially engaged!!

This is the ring he proposed with.  My fiance is one smart man, because he proposed with a cubic zirconia ring, so I got all of the surprise, but I still got to pick out the real ring too.

I guess I'm going to have to figure out something new to call him besides Boyfriend now!  In the meantime, my head is still in the clouds and apparently there's this big party I have to plan now, so I think I'm going to take a little break from blogging for the next week or so.  When I come back, I'll have a few more posts from our trip, hopefully a look at the engagement ring we picked out over the weekend, and a whole lot of fall fashion.  Have a fabulous week!!
