Hello Friends! How are you?
The same evening that Matt proposed to me, he also took me out to dinner. We went to Newmarket hotel in St Kilda and since it was a really cool restaurant, I thought I'd share it with you!
The design of this restaurant was really spot on and definitely had a bit of something extra. Just look at the arches!
We started the evening with some drinks and I ordered one of my favorites when it comes to beverages, Prosecco.
Matt also thought we'd get a cocktail jug, so we did. I remember thinking that it was quite a lot of booze for a regular Thursday but as I later understood, it wasn't any regular Thursday :)
Of corse, we had to snap a few couple selfies during the night. We were in a great mood and Matt was being so sweet and I remember thinking wow, what a lovely time we're going to have tonight. We're not going to have one single argument haha.
The food we ordered looked amazing and it tasted pretty good too. The only complaint was the portion size. They definitely could have been a bit bigger since it was quite pricey. One example was the HALF corn cob we received. I mean, it says corn cob on the menu and you kind of expect it to be a whole one? Not a half haha, anyway! We enjoyed ourselves.
We also had some lamb that had a really nice flavour but was just a bit too fatty.
After our dinner we walked towards the beach. It was such a beautiful evening and the weather was just perfect. Warm and not a breath of air :)
At this point Matt was still acting normal so I had no idea what was to come :)
Something quite funny that happened which we can laugh at and look back on, is how I insistedon getting a caramel sundae from McDonald's on the way to the beach. Matt was stressing a bit so that we wouldn't miss the sunset but I absolutely had to get an ice cream before and not some nice gelato but from good old Donalds. So my sweet boyfriend (at the time) queued up with me so I could buy my ice cream and then we sat down with this view. This was the moment when I noticed that something was a bit off with Matt and my intuitions were right because about 10 mins after this picture was taken, he proposed :)
So to sum up the evening I think it safe to say that it was one of the most magical and lovely nights I've had with Matt, for obvious reasons :)
