I AM ENGAGED!!!
I can’t believe I have a FIANCE now… YAY!
My Fiance, (I can officially call him that now!) took my daughter and I on a wonderful date at the Marine Club in SF. We had dinner at Leatherneck’s on the 12th floor and it was superb. All night he said sweet things and after dinner we walked around to look at the tribute wall for the Marines who have served our country. We went down to the 10th floor which holds a library for the guests. Inside they had these amazing displays of weapons, tanks, books and everything. BabyGirl was looking at everything and wondering if “we could go now?” and Fiance says, “Hold on.” We stood by this fireplace and he hugged me tight and told all these great things, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and my eyes welled up with tears when I said, “YES!!!” I pulled him up and kissed him and hugged him and laughed. Babygirl was looking at us like “put the ring on already so we can get outta here” so Fiance gave the ring to her and said, “Put this on Mommy.”
And now… what you’ve all been waiting for… MY RING!!!
Here is a little closer picture and you can see the setting and side stones a bit more. Teehee. =)
That’s not it though! He told BabyGirl that mommy wasn’t the only one to get something. He sat down in front of her, pulled out a pouch with a beautiful necklace with a heart shaped pendant and small sterling silver/cz ring and asked BabyGirl if she would accept him into her life as someone she could always come to for help. He also promised that he will always be there for her and take care of the both of us. It was so sweet. It was so sweet and she gave him a hug and said, “Of course!!! Can we go now?!?”
WOW! This feeling that is rushing through me is amazing and crazy and I just can’t believe it. But its real! =)

How sweet. 🙂 That’s similar to what my step-dad did with my mom and us (myself and my brothers.) It’s totally awesome.
LOVE your ring, by the way!

Thank you!!! I wanted to take a picture of her jewelry too, but everytime I got close to her with my camera she got shy and embarassed and said it was “too special” and only for “fancy occassions”.
