- Wedding: January 2014
So I knew that this weekend both my best freind and parents were coming into town to see me. I was very suspicioius of this, but I did not want to think too much of it and be dissapointed of it if it did not happen.
So my best friend came in on Friday and my parents were not coming in til 4 on Saturday so I figured if it did happen it would be Saturday night.
Well My friend kept telling me how hard of a week she had nursing and all and that she was exhausted and wanted to go to bed early friday that way she would be up for going out on Saturday. So that is what we did.
However, friday night my FI (EKK OMG)!!! said that he wanted to go to lunch with my roommate and best friend. He asked me what time I wanted to go, so I said 12;30 – 1:00 that way we could sleep in. Well then he said 12:00. So I reluctantly said yes, and left it alone.
Well on saturday morning he called me to wake me up and repeatedly stated lunch at 12:00. I thought this was odd, but decided I would ignore it. So of course we were a little late ;), but we did make it to lunch at 12:20. So since my best friend does not go to the same college as us, my FI decided that we would show her around the campus after we finished eating.
So we left the resturaunt and started walking around the campus and we are looking at a statue and describing the significance, and my friend points out the BIG BEAUTIFUL tree to the left of us called the Century Tree. We go to Texas A&M University and the century tree is a huge tradition for us.
It is said that if a couple walks underneath the tree then they will be together forever, however if you walk underneath it alone, you will be alone forever.
So my FI is descibing the tradition of it to my friend and states that he and I walked underneath the tree for our third anniversary. (kind of like a promise to each other).
After he gets done explaining he looks at me with those beautiful golden eyes and asks me if I want to walk under it again. Of course I say yes, but I knew that my roommate and friend could not walk underneath it (because of the saying) so I felt a little akward.
But then! Out from behind the tree my dad walks up. My FI said the second I saw my dad my hand tightened around his hand. My dad proceeds to walk up and reaches in his pocket I am in complete shock!
My dad says to my FI “take care of my little girl” and then hands my FI the ring box. My FI then gets on one knee and tells me how much he loves me, and how much he cares for me with a trembling voice.
Then he asks “Will you Marry Me?” Of course I said yes! When all of the proposal is over I look up and my entire family is there! His parents and sister, My parents and brothers and sisters, and my best friends!
It was absolutely beautiful and perfect. I am so excited to be starting this new chapter with the man that I love and adore!
And if you didnt see my other post of just the ring here are some photos! My ring is gorgeous! It is an oval 1.62 ct. D VS2 minimal bowtie! Cathedral setting in white gold. He gave me this setting so that I can design whatever ring that I want! I am so incredibly excited!!!
