So my Sweetie pop the question over the Thanksgiving week (I was out there for a week). He works for a radio station and actually had it play a clip over the radio, before popping the question live to me. Super awesome, many family members out of state were able to stream it and listen to it live! I will post it soon on here, once we put it in a YouTube Video.
I am NOT one that like all the attention on me, so I love that I can simply email the sound clip and people and hear about it that way. But there a ton of people that I’ve had to tell in person, I went 2 days at work before I said a word! I can’t believe how hard it was to tell coworkers and people in my everyday life. The mp3 is great so much easier! We will post it on Facebook soon but there is still a ton to share it too.
Any advice on sharing the good news of our engagement or should I wait and let everyone hear it from the grapevine. (I tried the “Just wear the Ring till someone asked” but only a few noticed.) Anxious to share the news, just not sure how to do it for coworkers and friends not on facebook.

@Jacquelinesc84: my coworkers are all men, so they didn’t really notice – the office manager is a girl so I showed her the ring which caused a little excitement but generally my office is pretty blah about the whole thing. My friends, i called a couple, texted a couple. You could always send an e-card for Christmas with the sound file embedded – ‘great news for the holidays’ and get it out there that way. Or put a note in your Christmas cards (assuming you send them)

I plan to personally call my family to tell them, text groups of close friends with a picture and the news, and let everyone else hear through Facebook. I doubt I would say anything to my coworkers unless someone happens to notice! A coworker of mine recently got engaged and he announced it at a firmwide meeting on Monday morning. That kind of made me cringe, but then again, I don’t like all of the attention being on me so that would make me uncomfortable.
For your friends who aren’t on facebook, I think it depends on how close you are with them. If they are more like acquaintances, I think that hearing through the grapevine is fine.

We are annoucing it on Facebook, I figure after that it through the grapevine. Forget trying to tell everyone! Funny thing is I work mostly with guys, the girls haven’t even notice the ring… The guys are the only one that noticed it! “Woooooo wait a second is that a ring!?!?!” LOL So I think it just spread today through work without me realizing it!!! Best part is they now just come up to me and in their own way tell me congrats. It was easier then telling them! LOL
My FI and I even having a slight contest, I post the video of the engagement tagging him in the video post. He changes our status to engaged. But we are each posting our own comment on “We are engaged” or what ever NOT tagging each other to see who gets the most likes and comments! LOL Should be interesting to see who wins! He actually has 200 more facebook friends than me! LOL
