- Wedding: November 2015
Not clueless in a bad way though, clueless in a good way. As in he’d been planning this proposal for two months and was trying so hard to keep it a secret. He was trying to wait until our 4 year anniversary (August 15th) but after I got him looking at rings online two days ago he decided he couldn’t wait any longer.
I am ecstatic!!! So happy! It was the sweetest thing ever too. I am glad he proposed to me before our anniversary because I wasn’t expecting it at all. Total surprise.
We went to go see a movie (How to Train Your Dragon 2, we’re both animation junkies) and we were 2 hours early for the movie. It was swealteringly hot outside and we’d just eaten lunch and had some Coldstone ice cream. Of course I had spilled food on my shirt and was sweating up a storm. We were sitting in the shade outside when I looked over at a cute little ceramic paint place in the plaza and suggested we paint something to kill the time.
As we were walking over to the ceramics place he stopped me and said so seriously, “I need to talk to you about something. Remember this morning when we were looking at rings and I didn’t really want to? It’s not because I don’t want to marry you, in fact *he gets down on one knee at this moment and pulls out a ring and starts tearing up* I already got you a ring and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”
I was thunderstruck! Out of the blue, the first things I was saying was OMG, OMG, OMG then I said, “I can’t believe you’re proposing to me while I’m all sweaty and wearing a dirty shirt – OF COURSE I’ll marry you!!!” =D
Then we hugged and kissed, told each other how much we love one another, and I kept saying about the ring, “omg it’s so pretty! It’s so perfect! It’s not gaudy, it’s not huge, it’s little and precious and just me! It’s perfect! It’s so perfect! You know me so well!” I couldn’t stop. lol
So we dried our eyes and went and painted two kitty cat ceramics (to look like our cats). And that’s our cute engagement story and I love it and couldn’t be happier!
