- Wedding: October 2013
We agreed to have a little “contest” to see who would first propose to each other during the week of Christmas vacation with my FI’s family. So both proposals happened on Christmas night, and he beat me to it by just an hour or two! We were with FI’s family on their farm celebrating Christmas, and we were opening presents the evening of the 25th, right before Christmas dinner. Right after all the presents were opened, FI says “There’s one more present!” And then he goes and brings down into the living room a model lego spaceship he’d been building for a few days. Yes, it is as nerdy as it sounds, and yes, he is 25 😛 He said that my last present was inside the spaceship, and I had to open it up.Of course I knew what was inside!
By the time I took the box out and turned around to him, I was shaking so badly and he was super nervous too, neither of us could say anythign for a few seconds. Then, he blurted out, “Do you wanted to get married?” And then we were hugging and his family was freaking out happily, and I was crying, and it was so wonderful. His mom could barely talk she was so happy, she was just hugging me so much, his dad just kept saying “Wow, wow!” and his sister said “I’m going to have a sister!” and that just did me in all over again.

I don’t have a great hand/ring shot because it had to be drastically resized and I couldn’t wear it for awhile so I’m wearing a stand-in in some of the pics below. But here is a close-up of the ring which we picked together.
