- Wedding: August 2011
So my FI has no filter whatsoever and says whatever is on his mind 🙂 . Last June he was telling be about a conversation with his boss about Thanksgiving weekend and that he told his boss he couldn’t work that weekend cause he was proposing to me on Thanksgiving. I was like “oh that interesting, thanks for letting me know”, and he replied, “oh I’m sorry, are you dissapointed cause now you know when I’m proposing?”
For a few weeks he kept planning our Thanksgiving roadtrip/proposal and then he started looking for rings, but couldn’t pick one so he sort of asked for my help. I ended up choosing one online and telling him ” THIS ONE!” haha so I knew price, shipping date, everything haha.
that week he told me that he was really dissapointed because zales had contacted him that the ring was out of stock and that it wouldn’t be brought back. I was really dissapointed too but told him that we could pick out another one.
That weekend in October he came to pick me up at the airport (long distance relationship) after a few weeks apart. As we went to pay our parking ticket he comes up behind me and gives me a hug, and takes out the ring box from his pocket. I was sooo surprised, and shocked as I saw that it was the one I had picked out all along!!!
So it turns out my friends were giving him a hard time for not making it a surprise so he had to improvise and scratch his Thanksgiving proposal!
I’ll never forget my airport parking proposal haha 😀
