I am very excited to tell you all that I am ENGAGED!!
After 5.5 years of dating, my wonderful boyfriend, now fiance (gotta get used to calling him my fiance) proposed to me yesterday 🙂 Here is the proposal story (I apologize in advance for this story being so long)
The proposal was completely NOT what either of us expected it to be. We were on a cruise with the family (our first cruise together). On the ship there was a high end jewelry store, where I tried on and fell inlove with a ring. At first, my fiance did not want to get me the ring. He didn’t want it to be an “impulse” buy. So we left the store and just went on our way. A few days went by and we didn’t talk about the ring at all, we simply wanted to enjoy the rest of the cruise with the family. The very last day that we were on the cruise he suddently “disapeared” from his room. When I asked my parents where we was they told me that he went on a walk. So of course I said “oh okay I’m going to go find him then”.
All of a sudden both my parents were holding me up; “oh but you can’t walk around the ship in those shorts, its almost dinner time you need to dress up a bit” and “oh hold on you need to sit and wait for us so we can be together as a family”. Irritaded I decided to listen to what they said, so I started changing into something nicer while the parents were getting ready. Mean while….My sneaky fiance was at the store buying the ring.
After I changed into something a little more decent, My parents and I started walking around the ship. I wanted to go up to the 6th deck (were all the stores were). My mom looked at me and said “wait first we have to go to the customer service desk because I want to ask them a question”. Without complaining, we started making our way to the customer service desk. When we got to the customer service I saw my fiance waiting in line talking to the jeweler (He had to clear the ring with customs) So I looked at him and shouted “Hey there he is! Baby what are you doing?”
He turned to me and said “oh hey um I bought a watch from the jewelers I’ll catch up with you later”, and then my grabbed my arm and said “hey we’ll ask customer service the question later”. At that point I felt something was a little fishy….
For the sake of this post, lets fast forward an hour….
I went back to the room to get ready for dinner. Right in the middle of me doing my hair, fiance walks into my room. I could tell he was acting a little different. So as I am sitting there at the vanity doing my hair, he sat beside me, with a grin on his face, held my left hand and said “Baby, I have to be honest with you, remember when I was at customer service and I told you that I bought a watch? Well I didn’t buy a watch….I bought you this” and took out a small white box from his pocket. At this point I had tears in my eyes and my heart was pounding. He told me how much he loved me then got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?”. I couldnt remember if I said yes before or after I gave him a huge hug. My heart was beating a million an hour and the water works were coming out hard. He later told me that he was going to wait until we got back home to do it but since I saw him in line at customer service he was nervous because he felt he blew his cover. I don’t care that he didnt have a whole lot of time to plan it. It was spontaneous and perfect to me. I got proposed to in the middle of the beautiful ocean in the bahamas…I couldnt ask for a better proposal 🙂
