Bees, I had a feeling he may do it yesterday, and he did!!! I was still in shock and this morning woke up on cloud 9!!! I’m visiting family and friends today to share the great news!!!!
I got home from work yesterday and he acted completely normal. We were going to dinner at the place we met on 1/31/11 but we’ve gone there many times since so it didn’t tip me off. He took forever reading the menu which isn’t like him and kept staring at my left hand which I kind of noticed but still didn’t think anything was up). He mentioned our first date and how I just couldn’t resist him after that.
After dinner we went home and were planning on going out a little later. I was sitting on the couch still in my nice outfit from dinner (he told me later he said let’s go out but come home in between dinner and bar so that I wouldn’t come home and change into my pajamas right away! ;o)). He came over and said “I have something to show you”. He pulled out a ziplock with an orange thing in it.
He said he had to think of a way to get my ring size, so he borrowed our friend’s daughter’s play dough, snuck and got my RHR and made that to bring to the jeweler! He then said, “I needed that, for this” and got down on one knee, opened a little white box and asked me to marry him!!!!!
I of course said “OMG, really??!!” And THEN yes and was crying and he placed the ring on my finger! I couldn’t be happier and I was kind of in shock the rest of the night!!
the ring is 1/2 carat solitaire, F color. He was very proud of the color, and said he chose to go quality over quantity. I LOVE it!!!!
