I'm so happy! Saturday was my birthday and we've been together for almost 4 years. Back in December I stopped hyping myself up and obsessing for *if* it would happen. Which included staying away from the Bee most days. So my expectations were low for my birthday but he made my 25th so memorable!
All I knew was that he was taking me out later in the evening but I didn't know any details. He acted so nonchalant all day long and he didn't seem nervous AT ALL. But apparently he was shaking in his boots the entire day. Later we were on the move and he took me to a sports bar downtown that we've been meaning to try and had a fantastic dinner. Then we started walking (in the windy cold) to an arena. It was a hockey game and we had front row seats, it was a really cool experience (though I never quite warmed up completely)!! He said at one point that he didn't get me a physical gift and hoped I didn't mind the experience instead- which was completely okay with me. During the game a couple got engaged on the jumbotron and we both were thinking, "Maaan..."
So we got back to his apartment around 10pm and I truly did not expect anything to happen. I went into the bathroom to wash my face and get ready for bed and after I dried it off I walked into the dining room where he was standing and he said, "Oh, I do have ooone more thing for you." So I replied, "One more thing huh?" Expecting a surprise gift of some sort, I turned around from getting lotion out of my purse and he pulled the ring box from his hoodie jacket got down and hurriedly/nervously asked me to marry him!!!!!! It was incredibly sweet and perfect for us a couple. I should also mention he was wearing one of those t-shirts where the front is a screen print of a tuxedo, hah! Of course we had so much excited/nervous energy and everything from there became a whirlwind.
The ring was a bit too snug even though he had originally correctedly ordered my size and then second guessed himself and ordered a size down. We were able to get it on but there was a bit of bulge so before I had a chance to miss it we took it in yesterday to have it resized and will have it back by Friday. So I didn't even have it for 24 hours but boy am I excited to have it for good!!!
It's a moissy 1.4 carat solitaire, cushion cut, palladium woven band. I'm in LOVE with it.
I'll probably post more when it fits my finger as it should! Late summer wedding here we come!!
@Leelee26: How sweet that he was so nervous! What a cute proposal story and what a gorgeous ring! Congratulations and happy planning! =)
Ha, I love that he fooled you! So fun when it's a total surprise :) Congrats!
Congrats! Love the twisted band. So different!
Congratulations! Very pretty ring!
OMG!! Congrats!I ALSOOO got engaged on my 25th birthday (this past July!).. at HOME... and my ring was TOO SMALL also!!
@MsHeatFan: Hahaha that's fantastic!!! Is that August 17th your actual wedding date? Because that's probably around the time frame we are looking at! lol
@Leelee26: Love it! The real life pics always look so much better than the cold, detailed pics on the website. Gorgeous ring, and congrats!
congrats and happy belated b-day!
@Leelee26: No, it's not :/ We're having a civil ceremony at the Chicago cultural center, and they only make appointments 60 days in advance (dates only available on select Saturdays a month).. We know we want to get married sometime between July and September, so I just chose my "desirable date" since it was mandatory on this site lol.
Congratulations!! Your ring is beautiful =)
Congratulations!! Your ring is gorgeous, and your story sounds so perfect! :]
Congraulations! What a sweet story!
Such a cute proposal!
Gah! Congratulations and such an adorable story... I can just imagine his face when the couple got engaged on the jumbotron... classic!
I LOVE the ring! We've decided on Moissanite as well and while I've given SO a few options of what I like (all simple, round solitaires), I keep coming back to this EXACT ring (same size cushion as well!).
If it's not too much to ask, may I ask your ring size and could you possibly post a "side view" of the ring on your hand? My only doubts were that it would sit up too high and catch on everything... but it looks so perfect on your hand!
Bottom line: it's stunning!
