I never put myself on the list because I really had no idea what my now-FI was thinking and I didn’t want to put myself on the list and be there for 18 months or more.
Well, my hesitancy means I will NEVER be on the list!
After much drama, we got engaged on 9/10/13 at Walt Disney World in front of the Castle during the fireworks. Earlier in the day he had given me a speech that he wasn’t sure he was ready to get married and now what do we do, because he feels like he’s always disappointing me. And I said that we would figure it out, but that he needed to decide now what he really wanted and whether marriage was in his future at all, because the time had run out for maybes. He told me he wanted to get me a new promise ring because I deserve that and I kind of balked (I have one from 2 1/2 years ago.)
Then I left the hotel room and I called my dad and asked his advice because I didn’t want to wait for maybe anymore. He gave me some good words and I went back to the room after I called and talked to my best friend. I won’t say I wasn’t really bummed out because I was, but I pulled it together to enjoy the last day of our vacation.
We went to the Magic Kingdom for the fireworks. I had reserved us seating in the rose garden area, so we were able to sit down and watch (my feet were killing me by this point in our trip.) I was bummed but I watched and had a good time.
Halfway through, he kind of grabs my arm and says “I got you this. Will you marry me?” And I burst into tears. Unfortunately, my first words were “I hate you so much right now!” Then I said yes. And then told him I would never forgive him for what he did to me earlier that day.
But, in the end we are happy and ENGAGED and I dragged him around Epcot wearing “Just Engaged” buttons for the entire day after.
