Â Share your proposal story?Â Cakes and I already knew we wanted to get married, and had started talking about it and discussing ourÂ dream wedding and engagement rings. My birthday was coming up, and Iâ€™d always thought it was tackyÂ for guys to propose on a birthday (because I want a birthday present too!), so I let him know beforehandÂ not to do it. I share my birthday with a friend of mine, and sheâ€™d arranged for a few of us to have dinnerÂ at her house. The theme was Glitz and Glam, and I chose a red lace top and gold sequined skirt forÂ dinner. That weekend, my sister had suggested long-distance Girl-Bonding time (she lives in Atlanta andÂ Iâ€™m in Lagos, Nigeria) for us to get our nails done, so I was prepared. I asked Cakes to drop me off atÂ my friendâ€™s house because I didnâ€™t want to deal with traffic. Dinner was FABULOUS! We had a NigerianÂ celebrity chef serve a 5-course meal, and a photographer to capture the evening. After dinner, weÂ planned to go out for drinks, but the other girls were lazing about in the living room and I noticed theyÂ were acting funny. They were whispering to each other, and would clam up or change topic when I gotÂ close. Eventually, I sat at the dining table to talk to my cousin, and a minute later, in walks Cakes fromÂ the kitchen, all dressed up! He got down on one knee and said my full name, while I hid my face in theÂ table (I was crying). It took me a while to compose myself, but I finally lifted my head up and embracedÂ him with a kiss! I donâ€™t actually remember saying Yes, lol. Â I kinda had an inkling that the proposal was going to happen soon, because he was being secretive theÂ week before he proposed. It turns out my sister had helped him buy the ring in Atlanta, and my mumÂ delivered it to him on her way back into the country, 2 weeks before. BTW – Iâ€™ve forgiven him for proposing on my birthday :p Â

I definitely want to leaveÂ my hair out. It might be a bun or a pin/tuck variation. Â How long have you been natural? My last relaxer was in 2006. Iâ€™ve chopped my hair 3 times since thenÂ (BC, and 2 trims-turned-chops). Â You can find this blushing bride to be on her blog at :Â http://berrydakara.blogspot.
