#165 can be taken off the list as I am no longer a lady in waiting 🙂
14 years ago I had a crush on the boy who worked with me at the bakery. 3 years ago he asked me to be his girlfriend. Two nights ago he asked me if I would be his wife!!!
wednesday night I left work and called my SO (now FI, eek!) on my way to my car as I do every night. Told him I was in my way home and we some as normal, he gave me no inclination.
It was bad weather and took me about 25 or so minutes to get home. I walk in and the hall light was off and it was very quiet. I figured he was either in his office or perhaps ran to the store. I turned the corner into our living room with my coat still on and there he was standing there with a dozen roses on his hands!!
I knew instantly what was happening and started sweating like crazy and tearing up. I ripped off my coat and came back to him. He was smiling like crazy but shaking like a leaf!! He said so many wonderful things and then got down on one knee and said “First middle and last name, will you marry me” we were both crying at this point and I can’t even remember what I was saying. He slid the gorgeous ring on my finger while shaking. I got down to my knees to and we hugged and kiss and then he asked “did you say yes?”
I had forgotten to say yes!! Of course it was a yes!!! We popped champagne, smiled, cried, hugged and kissed for some time and then called loved ones who were so happy for us! My beloved grandmother was crying so much on speakerphone that it made us cry!
Then we went out to our favorite resteraunt and had an amazing meal together as an engaged couple 🙂 On the way home FI beeped at everyone he saw walking on the streets, which was a lot since we live in a busy city!!
One people are very right about is that it all goes by in a flash! I wish I could have trained my brain to really just be in the moment at the time but emotion and adrenaline took over in one big wonderful blur!
I’m so very happy it was a low key at home proposal. Anything else wouldn’t have been true to who we are as a couple. I couldn’t have asked for a more memorable moment!! And because it was the day before thanksgiving yesterday we got to share our wonderful news with all our closest family!
oh and here is my beautiful ring, im so in love with it!!!
