My Embarrassing Engagement Video

Jermaine and I have been engaged for 6 months now and our wedding is 45 days away. About 4 months ago I said I would release our engagement video and I have been slacking. Why?

I. Hate. It.

I hate this engagement video.

Yes it is raw, real, and honest which embodies the traits of the blog but every time I watch it, I am shocked to see just how raw, real, and honest my reactions are. I cannot stand the sounds that come out of me. Like really Jen?  Hahaha.

I always imagined I would be cool and suave about it but yeah… that did not happen. I guess this is what being surprised is all about.

Although I knew that Jermaine wanted to propose and get married, I never in a million years would have guessed it was when it happened.

On Thanksgiving Day after my mom, sister, Jermaine and I returned from feeding the homeless a Thanksgiving meal, we were prepping our own meal. My mom was acting so incredibly weird (weirder than usual hahaah) and kept telling me to change into something nicer for dinner. That’s when I noticed she had on a pretty nice dress that was not in line with our cozy dinner at home. Basically she did the most but looked absolutely LOVELY.

Jermaine kept mentioning that he had found a dessert I would like and I was REALLY excited about it. I am all about the dessert and I had visions of chocolate souffles in my head. The timer on the oven went off and they asked me to get the dessert. I was irritated because I was already sitting down to eat and then……….

So now you have all seen what I deem the embarrassing engagement video. Let’s pray our wedding one is cool, calm, and suave like I envisioned I was lol!

We did make a REGISTRY and it was so hard to do. I mean we have all the gadgets and gizmos but Zola made it incredibly easy to do something kinda fun 🙂

p.s. I never got my delicious dessert but I did get a wonderful snack of a fiancee!

    I’m literally sitting here crying and smiling while watching this. I can’t believe you hate it! It made me smile so wide 😍 but then I couldn’t stop the tears when I thought of how much you’d want to call your “angel” to share the news. That makes it bittersweet. But the video is TRULY beautiful! You’re beautiful. Your hubby to be is so sweet and you guys will have an amazing wedding! Your mom is a class act and as for your father, he’s proud and he too will be smiling on your big day! Congrats again Jen 🙂 Can’t wait to see the wedding photos!

    Now let me go watch the video again and cry some more 😩🤣
