After picking out a ring and then months of waiting, the day finally came! My wonderful guy asked me this past Thursday night to be his wife. 🙂
I came home from work around 10pm to find our Christmas tree all lit up, candles everywhere, a delicious dinner cooked, and my guy looking handsome all dressed up in a suit! I was so surprised – I had no idea it was going to happen that night. When he got down on one knee I couldn’t even talk! After he said “will you marry me?”, I threw my arms around him and wouldn’t let go, lol. He set the ring box on the coffee table to hug me back, and our dog tried to steal it! I’m so glad he caught her, because it would be a little weird wearing a ring that’s seen the inside of my dog’s digestive tract. :/
Anyway, it’s been 3 days and I still can’t get used to calling him my fiance! I was trying to introduce him to a friend of mine whom he hadn’t met before at church this morning, and I said “hey, this is my b….ance.” Sounded like Beyonce. I think I’ll just start calling him my Beyonce. 😀
Did anyone else have such a hard time with the title change? He’s been mixing it up too. Every time he calls me his girlfriend, I just flash the ring. 🙂
It’s been 4 months and I STILL can’t get used to it!! I don’t know.. maybe because he was my boyfriend for 7 years before that? I feel silly saying fiance. I only use the term if I’m he comes up in conversation with someone who doesn’t know him. I’ve been getting used to it because when I would refer to him as my boyfriend, numerous people would point to my ring and ask if I was engaged. I don’t know why they had to ask that.. it’s pretty obvious haha.
Your ring is stunning! And to actually answer your question, I HATE the word fiance…something about it makes me feel just really snobby and pretentious, like I’m bragging or something, haha! I like “husband” and “wife” much better so it’ll be much better in 5 months when I can use those! I mean, I don’t lie and I still call him my fiance, but still, sometimes I’ll slip…and even when I get it right I still feel awkward!!
Love your ring! It’s been around a year now and I still don’t use the term fiance unless it helps make sense of what I’m saying. I don’t really like the term. My SO, partner and his first name are what I call him to other people.
