My SO finally proposed! I say that because I proposed first! Surprise! But that will be my next post.
Apparently Mr. LSP was going to propose a couple other times, but they weren’t “perfect.” (He’s so sweet!) The first opportunity was Dragon*Con this year, but he decided he didn’t want to propose in front of so many people, and there wouldn’t be any time to adequately “celebrate”… Fortunately, that’s when I decided to propose to him!
Then he was going to propose at a Magic: The Gathering pre-release event, but I decided that since I hadn’t really played enough with our friends to feel comfortable to play the game against strangers. So I ruined that plan: he was going to have our SCAD-graduate friend create a proposal card, and he was going to play that card during a practice game before the tournament started. Aren’t I the worst for ruining that?? That would have been adorable, and we could have framed the card! Stupid me, being all insecure and such?
So we were at his taekwondo tournament in Orlando yesterday, and we were SUPPOSED to go to Universal Studios to visit the Harry Potter island at Islands of Adventure today. But silly me checked one-day pass prices last friday, and I decided we shouldn’t spend so much money for just one day…so I ruined his plan to propose there. And it would have been so cute and perfect…
So when I asked if we could walk out to our car to get my (Power Rangers) sweatshirt, he saw an opportunity. He said, “Hold on, let me get something.” He pulled out a bracelet?/earring? box, and opened it, and there it was! I said, “Are you serious??” He smiled and asked, “Will you marry me?” and I said, “Of course.”
We hugged and kissed a lot, and then I cried a bit. And it was perfect.
And if you read this far, it’s probably because you were hoping to see…THIS:
Isn’t it perfect? It was his mother’s.
