leisha606: Honestly, I had my DREAM proposal, without even knowing it, because I had never thought about/cared HOW he would do it, but rather that he do it all.
It was a Friday, in early summer, and my day was business as usual. Except, when a gorgeous bouquet of flowers were delivered to my office with a note “I love you”, and his name. At that moment, because he never does that, I thought “OMG!!! TODAY IS THE DAY!”, and proceeded to call him to thank him. He was so non-chalant over the phone (and I always KNEW I would KNOW if/when he was going to propose, because he cannot hide a single thing from me ::). He just said he knew I was having a bad week (when I asked him what I did to deserve them). At that moment, due to his attitude, I thought ‘nope, not gonna happen’.
Fast forward a few hours, and he calls me on his way home from work, and tells me that he has reserved a table a nice restuarant for 7pm, and to be home and ready by then. My thought, “YUP, he is proposing…eeeeee!”. So, I go to have a glass of wine with a friend after work to squeel with delight over the fact that today will be the day. Except, when I get home at 630pm, he is washing his truck, completely ‘normal’ for him to do, and there is no way he could be normal before proposing, so out went the thought, and off to dinner we went. Dinner was lovely, per usual, and he was completely himself.
We get the check, I ask what we want to do next, and he said we should take a walk along the river (WHICH WE NEVER DO!), and so butterflies arose again, and I got giddy with excitement. We walked, and walked, and walked, and chatted, and then he said ‘well, we should head home, I have to be up early for work’. That is when I told myself that he is screwing with with, and no, he is not proposing today.
We get home, and there is a flat of flowers on our front porch. When I asked what they were, he said he forgot to tell me that his mom had extras and dropped them off. Totally normal thing for her to do. We went inside, got into our pjs, poured a cocktail, and he asked if I wanted to sit outside. So, out we go. He asks if we should plant the flowers so they do not die, and I said ‘no freaking way, I am tired’. He starts burying a hole for the first one, and out of the corner of my eye, I see something white in the dirt. I asked him ‘what is that?’. He says ‘you should come see’. I say, ‘no, what is that’, and as he digs a little deeper, I realize it is a box, and then I realize that he just set/set-up the perfect proposal. He got down on one knee, and I said yes!
You see, he played with me for an entire day, and then enjoyed squashing each and every ‘proposal’ moment, knowing i would have NEVER expected it to be on our front porch, in my pjs, with a buried box 🙂
THE ONLY thing, only only thing I ‘wish’ would have been added is to have had something ‘set-up’ with close friends and family post-proposal, because calling everyone in that hour or two was exhausting, lol. But, beyond that, I am pretty lucky to have had my perfect proposal!!!
