He’s asking my parents if he can have my hand! No proposal tomorrow, that I know for sure.
It’s a LDR, so there aren’t as many opportunities to ask my folks in person. I’m so glad he will be doing it before he heads back home on Tuesday.
On Christmas Eve he told his parents (not at the same time) that he was going to be asking my parents this weekend. He told me in the middle of church that night-he’s not a church person, but he had come to hear me sing. I think it was in the middle of a carol-I can’t believe I don’t remember the exact moment-he turned to me and whispered. I started to tear up! It’s funny, I was actually wearing a white dress, not a wedding dress of course-it actually looks more like a Christmas angel dress if anything.
On Christmas day I was helping with the dishes before dessert and his dad walked into the kitchen and made some comment about good teamwork, with that “knowing look” in his eye.
I’m not sure how he’s going to do it. Or if I’ll be allowed in the room at the time. All I know is that it will be sometime after 8pm tomorrow.
Hmm….I wonder if this new development will make waiting easier or harder.

I think it would make waiting harder! Haha, I would be expecting it at any minute!

Awwwwww yay! We have that trip scheduled for January! I am SO excited for you!!!!!!!! Ah, I don’t WANT to be in the room at ALL. I might either cry or not be able to stop laughing and that would just be awkward for everyone. But for real, congrats!

Congrats! It’ll make waiting a little harder (I waited almost a year after he got my ring), so just try to remember how excited you are without obsessing over when and where it’ll happen. You’ll just drive yourself crazy!

Such a sweet story! What a lovely Christmas, you can cherish that memory for a lifetime.
My FI kept everything a suprise. He asked my Dad for his permission without me ever even suspecting. He told my best fried and other family members. He even showed them the design for the ring he was having custom made and I had no idea! Needless to say whwn the proposal came a long I was floored!

oh I think it will make it a lot harder! It did for me at least!
I knew it was just one less thing standing in the way of the proposal so it made it harder to keep my mouth shut haha
But it is still exciting! Hopefully it will come soon!

It was the SWEETEST thing! I had no idea what one typically says, and I wasn’t sure what he was going to say to them.
He and I had gotten back from running around (more on that later) and we got home and we were hanging out with the folks and the dog in the den. I guess he figured it was time, and he kinda was asking if I was going to stay in the room or go in the next room/upstairs. My dad pointed out with my ‘bionic hearing’ I’d have to go to the next block not to hear. I said I’d go in the next room. Well, I grabbed my video camera and was filming it from the next room. Not the visuals, I couldn’t see from where I was hiding, but I got the audio of it so I can listen to it years from now. Anyway, it was so sweet, with him telling them how he loved me more than anything in the world…I mean, he’d told me that of course, but to hear him tell it to someone else….wow.
So….it happened! Now I just gotta wait on the proposal (I will write about that in another post).
