A very special day: One year engagement, Twenty-forth birthday, First blog giveaway

Exactly one year ago,today (September 9, 2009), Gabriel proposed to me! 🙂 He did it on the field of one of the biggest soccer stadiums in the world, “El Azteca” in Mexico City, Mexico.(fact: This stadium hold 107,494 seats!) This day was already special even before he proposed because we were going to watch the game, which was a World Cup Qualifying match between Mexico (where Gabriel is from) and Honduras (where my parents are from, and basically I’m a the craziest Honduras soccer fan!lolz)….

It’s a verrrrrrry long story (that i love, but i think may bore you,lol) about how he planned everything!  and how his cousin and him had tricked me into thinking that we were getting field access because Gigo (cousin) had to do a report on the fan atmosphere for  work(TvAzteca).. How i didn’t realize Gigo was filming me the whole time, while i recorded myself! lol. Here’s the video, that i recorded…it’s the 3 clips i took on my camera: the one before the proposal, and 1 after, and during the game 🙂
