ME!! LOL! We were having a conversation about money, the recession etc and again I reiterated (very Method Man style) “I don’t need a ring to be your wife” and he sort of rolled his eyes because he of course thinks that I want a ring and all of this pomp and circumstance.
So I said well I should just ask you.
He said why don’t you (really in a semi-snarky way almost daring me, lol)
I called his bluff and said will you marry me
(silence I heard crickets chirping and I was like oh no he doesn’t want to marry me) but he was grinning
And then I said WELL…
And he said yes…
Then I went into shock… are you serious I squealed, and he just grinned and said Yeah I said yeah.. and I jumped into his lap and gave him kisses.
So fast forward to this morning, I said, are we engaged
And he said well yeah.
I said, yeah but I didn’t know you were serious. Does this mean I can start planning?
And he said, Yeah I guess so.
And then I was confused or in shock and he was napping… soooo I waited until he woke up and asked him again “Does this mean we’re engaged”
And he asked: How many times do I have to say yes?! Lol we’re engaged.
Then I burst into tears and he gave me a big hug and kiss on my forehead.
So that’s my proposal story in a nutshell, nothing fancy, no ring, we were just very us (and yes I usually call his bluff lol)… I don’t even know if I want a ring?? I’m thinking I’ll just do a band very Angelina and Brad style, something simple and classic or maybe a few bands lol we’ll see. My mom is ecstatic, the kids are happy, and on December 30th, 2010, I’ll be Mrs. M H (holy shit!!)

No offense to anyone, my FI included, but that’s one of the best engagement stories ever only because you were so unsure for hours today (AND you had all of us on the edge of our seats waiting for the update!). Congratulations!!!!
