- Wedding: January 2014
So FI (I love saying that already..I’m so cheesy) popped the question ring and all last night and this ladies and gents is how it went down.
We went out to dinner and then downtown for drinks with his Navy friends.. Everyone was having a blast and apparently I missed quite a few clues.. Like his friend flat out saying “engagement celebration” How did I miss that? Or his friend constantly just hugging me and giving me weird looks. So out of the blue Fi asked me to go for a walk and I thought maybe it was coming but he had such a weird look on his face that I second guessed it and thought maybe he was mad at me. So I asked if he was angry and he just said no and then I jokingly asked if he was breaking up with me and he responded with “No but I cheated on you”
MY HEART DROPPED. OH MAN, worst feeling ever.. So we went back and forth and he repeatedly told me he was joking.. We’re playful like that so I accepted and laughed it off. We got to this park and he sat me down on a bench and got on one knee
Then pulled out a ring and started talking about the JFK Assassination…. No joke.. Like ranting on about it. Finally in laughter and teary eyes I asked “Is this a proposal or just about JFK?” Where and I quote he says “Like JFK blessed the labor unions, God will bless our union.” Im still laughing pretty hard about that one now but at the time I was just waiting for the “will you marry me?” So of course all the sweet adorable lines came out and the question and he put the ring on it!
His friend came running behind us and I guess he was following us and had been recording the whole thing (the video didnt turn out or I would post it) The night followed with at least 30 people if not more coming downtown to celebrate with us! I guess everyone had known and been planning to come for weeks and I had no clue! It was so sweet.
And the pictures to follow!
