Here was the thread of me freaking out over the planning hahah:
Basically, I asked FI to meet me at the mall after work. FI was grumpy and a little sick, so it took some coaxing (with a bribery of food/dinner out) to get him there LOL. I asked him to meet me outside FOREVER XXI and it seriously took him FOREVER to get there.
I must’ve looked like a lunatic pacing back and forth nearly nibbling off my fingernails!! HAHAH.
FI FINALLY met me in front of the store and he looked so sick. I said, “Come on, and dragged him into FOREVER 21.” HAHAH He had the whole shoot-me-now face on thinking I was taking him shopping. I led him directly upstairs to the corner of the store…
I asked him if he remembered this being a Sportschek. He said yes…
Then I asked him if he remember what it was BEFORE that.
He said, “Yes, it was the Indigo Bookstore.”
I asked him, “Do you remember what happened here? You told me you loved me for the first time 10 years ago.”
((SALESLADY INTERRUPTED US!!! LOL But she was nice and was like “OH! Sorry, you guys were having a lovey dovey moment and I just totally ruined it. Sorry. Sorry.”))
Anyway, I TOTALLY forgot my speech. Stammered something about loving him and asking him if he knew what today was. Talked about how on Leap Year, an Irish tradition lets a lady propose to man. That’s when I pulled out the box and asked him, “Will you marry me?”
To which he responded, “No way. That’s a Michael Kors box. Is it a watch!?” He was super excited and opened the box. “WOW, that looks so cool.”
*cough* “So – uh … You didn’t answer my question… Will you marry me?”
He said “Yes! I can’t wait.” Gave me a kiss and apologized for possibly getting me sick. <3
Edited to add: Later, I actually bought a pair of boots from FOREVER 21… and as I was picking them out, I heard FI whisper “You just proposed to me… It’s just hitting me now.” LOL
