I can’t believe that it finally happened but you can cross number FOUR off of the waiting list! I am so happy and excited! Move on up ladies!
I thought for sure that he was going to do it on Valentine’s Day, but long story short, he got sick, we did not go out as planned, and I broke down on him because of it.
Today (2/20) was our 3 year, 6 month anniversary (we celebrate each month by going out on a special date night), and he told me that he would make up Valentine’s Day to me by taking me out today (it was originally supposed to be a combined celebration on Valentine’s Day).
I canceled my night shift (supposed to work 10pm-6am tonight) and he refused to tell me what he had planned. We got home from work early because of the holiday and got some things done around the house. Then he asked if we could go out earlier because he was super tired. I was like, “great, that means no dinner reservation since he is changing it up.” So we headed upstairs to change and get ready. He quickly threw on a new shirt and then… fell asleep on the bed. I kept getting ready and got all dressed up just because we haven’t had a date night in almost two months. I walk out and attempt to wake him up to no avail. Finally I got him to get up and he tells me to take a second, warmer jacket in the car along with some gloves. I did with no questions asked.
We drove about 20 minutes or so and ended up on the top of a mountain. He told me that he had planned a short hike for us because I’ve been wanting to go hiking with him for over a year. He said that he was worried because it might be cold and windy… he also didn’t account for the mud or the fact that I was wearing heels!
We drive up the mountain and his hiking road is closed. We drive down the mountain to another trail. He takes my hand and leads me along the path. He kept wandering around like he was looking for something (which I guess was him trying to find a spot to propose!). Then we stopped (the overlook was absolutely beautiful) and he told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and asked me to marry him! He pulled the ring box out of his jacket pocket (I never saw him put it in there!) and I remember he originally opened it backwards. I said “yes!” and then “are you sure?” (lol) and then he took off my glove and slid the ring on my finger.
We tried to hike down the trail, but that was when he realized that I was wearing heels so we returned to the car. We headed down the mountain and he took me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant!
Now… the ring porn!
