- Wedding: September 2013
Hi everyone! I am very new to this site, so I apologize in advance if I posted this wrong. I only visited the site a few times back when my friend was getting married. BUT today Im back because I got engaged just the other day!! He asked on 12/12/12 🙂
To begin the story, a little background. I am 22 years old and my fiance is 25, we’ve been dating for over 5 years now and living together for almost 3. He works full time at a small computer company while I am still in school, actually in an internship to become a registered dietitian. For those of you who dont know, this intership program is extremely intence since it is only 9 months, so granted Ive been more stressed then ever!!
Now to the fun part: Wednesday I went into rotation early and was exhausted from staying up late the night before finishing my lesson plan. Lucky for me my preceptor let me leave at 4. I stopped to get my hair cut on the way home because it was long over due, and I had my bf’s work christmas party to attend on Friday. After leaving the salon my bf calls and we’re talking for awhile. I mention its 12/12/12 and its a good day to get enaged or married on, but he shrugs it off saying the numbers dont work. (his into numerology, and wanted the best date for our engagement) He then went on about how bad he wanted to go out to eat that night, while I just wanted to sleep lol. By the time I got home I actually wanted to grab a quick dinner (instead of cooking) and get back nice and early to sleep. Of course my bf didnt want to leave right away. Me being annoyed, jumped in the shower and when I got out my bf was no longer upstairs. (we live in a apartment above his grandparents home) I quickly put on sweats, thinking we were gonna run to applebees. I go downstairs and his grandpa tells me he thinks he went out to the garage. So I walk out through the garage and into the backyard and see a campfire going. (really sweet now, but at that time I was annoyed because it was getting late and I was hungry!!) He tells me theres a comet that we will be able to see at 7pm and he wanted to wait until after that to go. So fine, we talk were waiting, its 7:02pm “oh no we missed it” he says, I get up and am looking for this comet, I think I see it and start taking pictures and yelling at him to come look. When I turned around he was on one knee with the ring saying ” I want you to marry me”!!! I was so surprised and shocked I think I tackled him and wouldnt stop kissing him. The best part; he got it all on camera!! We are both beyond excited, and I am still shocked that he managed to ask my parents and not have my dad tell me. (my dad cant keep a secret for ANYTHING) Here’s a few pictures of the ring!!
