Bees it happened! I’m engaged!
So this past Saturday my FI(Ahh!!)’s family was going Christmas tree cutting. They go every year and it’s a tradition and afterwards they go to Tim Hortons for lunch. Anyways this was the last tradition of theirs that I hadn’t been a part of yet.
So FI a while ago asked me to take that Saturday off work so I could go. Anyways while we’re driving I’m fretting about an exam I have on Tuesday (had today) and so I’m kind of being bitchy and asking ‘when it will be done’ etc. And he kind of got mad at me and told me it would be fine and he knew I knew my stuff and that sometimes I need to take time away to be with family.
Okay. We get to the place an hour later and FI takes me around the perimeter of the trees. We don’t have room for a tree so we didn’t cut one. As we’re walking he’s holding my hand and telling me how happy he was and that this was the last tradition I hadn’t experienced and now after this I’d officially be a part of every tradition and he was happy about that.
Then he stops and is kissing me a lot. And he turns me and I stop and ask what he’s doing, he said “they’re taking pictures, lets get a nice kissing picture” so I think nothing of it – his dad always has his camera on him. Anyways we stop kissing and then he’s just staring at me and smiling (and shaking which I didn’t notice too much since it was cold). And then he says “kayberry, will you marry me?” to which I said loudly “you can’t say that!!!” (because, if any of you have seen Fight Club, there’s the rule of 3. Where the first time you ask someone they don’t put much thought into it, the second time they’ve had time to think, and the third time they know 100%. So he’s asked me 2x before this and I told him the third time had to be the real deal). And I thought he was just saying it because he was happy.
So he goes “but what if I was serious?” and reaches into his inner coat pocket and I almost lost it! I know I said ‘oh my god’! a lot, and ‘are you serious?’ and he pulled out the ring that I fell in love with that he had custom made and I said YES!!
Then once he gets the ring on my finger we hug and kiss and I’m crying. Then he goes ‘there’s people taking pictures of you, you know. Turn so they get a good picture’ and I turn and his parents are standing across the lot, his dad has a long lens (like a papparazzi lens) on his camera and is snapping pics! He caught the whole thing!
And NO he didn’t get on one knee, but it was really wet and muddy so that’s okay!
Now for ring pics! Also note, FI doesn’t like me putting up pics, so I’ll have to edit this and remove the pics later.
In the band in the middle on the sides it is channel set, beside that is pave, each face is pave, and the center diamond is 1 ct E Hearts and Arrows cut!
