what i wore for our engagement dinner

I wore this lovely thigh high split dress to our engagement meal. I had my eye on this dress for quite a while in the shop but I didn't buy it as I had just bought one in the same style. So what a fantastic surprise I had when I saw it in the sale at half price. I automatically presumed there wouldn't be one in my size so I nearly punched the air in delight when they had!

It is a lovely, fitting dress that feels so comfortable to wear. I paired it with heels and a bag I already had. A bonus that I had items in my wardrobe to go with it!

As we have just got engaged, I couldn't resist a photo showing my ring off!

 We had a great family night in a little Mexican restaurant which serves the best Mexican food around. It's also good for cocktails which were the best! A perfect meal for a perfect engagement!

It's Monday so it's back to Blogtember again. The prompt today is take this short personality test and respond to the test. The results were very interesting and did make me laugh. I did recognise some of the personality traits of an ISFJ in myself.

Apparently I like to be methodical and do a good job; I've always known I was a bit OCD! It also says I work well in small groups and that my personality type often teach! That would be right then as I'm a teaching assistant!

It was bang on the money when it said I liked to make the most of family celebrations. I love preparing for a party!

Have a lovely Monday
