April Fool said with lots and lots of affection. 🙂 Last night my FI (:O) proposed on our 2 year dating anniversary!
When we made plans to go out to dinner, he specified it had to be somewhere that we haven’t tried before. Makes sense now…a place for us alone to have our own special moment/memories at.
We had some unique and nummy drinks and seafood appetizers for happy hour, and then we sat down for dinner and both had steaks, (at a mostly seafood place…haha, we’re funny) which were delicious.
While we were waiting for our food, I took my card to him out of my purse and put it on the table for him to open. He said we should wait until after we were done eating, so I put it back.
When the dishes were cleared, he opened the card (which included concert tickets for an artist he likes) and then I said “I bet you didn’t get me a card, huh?” (I’ve gotten one, maaaaybe two, in the 2 years we’ve been together. And every holiday I tell him I’d like a card. :P) and he said “I think I have something that’s better than a card” and pulled the diamond out of his pocket!
He asked me to marry him, and I said YES! Teared up a bit, and was just…really excited. Then we got dessert, which I couldn’t really eat because I was so full and excited and the server said “I was just going to say what a beautiful ring you have!” I told her I had just gotten it and she brought us out some complimentary champagne to celebrate with. So sweet!
And now for the sparkler. Sorry about my dry-ass, bedraggled hands!
Jewelry is hard to photograph! It’s much sparklier IRL.

@hidingmyface: Thanks! I mentioned I was hoping for a proposal in another thread, and one bee said “I wouldn’t want a proposal on April Fools Day!” I told her I would be royally pissed if he joke proposed, and he knew it.
@KCKnd2: Yay Madtown bees! We actually went to Tempest Oyster Bar. Their mixed drinks are sublime, and the steak was so awesome, even though it’s not their specialty. FI is a big fan of raw oysters, so I thought we’d check out oyster happy hour!
Thank you! 🙂
