I've been walking on cloud nine for a couple of days now... 33rd birthday will be one i will never forget, because that beautiful man of mine asked me to become his wife. I couldn't believe it when he pulled out the most gorgeous ring, the ring I've dreamed about. Our 2 little cupcakes looked on and after I'd said yes, yes, yes. Molly said "mummy does this mean you're be a princess now" awww bless her. Daisy just wanted to see in what was in the box, her Daddy had given to me.
That afternoon we took the ring back down to be sized as it was a bit big. Ben had no idea of what size, bless and guessed. And not to bad, it was only 2 sizes to big lol but i do have really small fingers. We can go down on Saturday and collect it. My Granny and Jade will have the girls for us while we pop out to get it. And i can wear it proudly from then on. Thank you Ben you have made me the happiest person alive and i will be the best wife you could ever ask for. I love you with all my heart. X
My fabulous day didn't end there, i had yummy chocolate cupcakes.....

This lovely cook book from the cupcakes, lots of yummy treats and dinners in here for me to try.

I was a very good girl and saved this little lots for until my big day and was delighted with everything inside it. Sooo much pink, it is just fabulous. Thank you, thank you Alison you are a real sweetie. The girls love their little pink hearts and have hung them on our tree. Big kiss form them too X X

And here is my Mum's fun present of pass the parcel lol it was a box inside a box, wrapped up inside another box lol gorgeous floral mug. Thank you mum i love it. The patten is very much like Cath Kidston's style. My Mummy knows me so well hehe!
I also received lots of cards and other gift vouchers and felt totally spoilt for the day. But as with all good things that come to us, it is normally followed with something bad. I came down with a pooie old cold the day after and feel all crappy, run down and keep coughing.
But who cares about a silly old cold, when you've just been asked to marry someone. So I'm staying in the warm, with the cupcakes, lots of Christmas DVD's to watch, cards to write, hot drinks and cold remedies to take and the thought of wearing my engagement ring on Saturday to make me all better.
Thank you everyone for the lovely birthday wishes, cards and emails. This blogging world is full of the most wonderful people. Hugs for each and everyone of you x x x
Back soon with photos of the cupcakes Christmas fete at playgroup. If you're in Rochester this Saturday afternoon, pop on in. 2.30-4.30pm Meadows Pre-school. Pick up a yummy cake or 2, last minute gift or just to see Santa lol
All my cupcakes wishes.
