- Wedding: November 2013
Since my fiance (it feels so weird to call him that!) and I picked out a ring together in September, I was patiently (okay, not so patiently!) waiting for him to pop the question.
Nothing … Nothing … Nothing …
About a week or so ago we decided we’d go out for a random Tuesday date night. We went out for Indian (one of our favorites) and dressed up a little. While we were at the restaurant, he mentioned that we haven’t played Scrabble in a while (this is something we do quite often, as we’re both huge nerds). He asked if I wanted to play when we got home, and I said, “Sure.”
When we got home, he got the game and asked if I would set it up for us. We have the wooden box version with the sliding lid, and as I slid it back, I saw that there were Scrabble tiles lined up … And they spelled out “Will you marry me?” (He even wrote in a question mark on a blank tile.) The ring box was sitting inside (as were some delicious dark chocolates!). I just looked at him and said, “Is this for real?!?!?”
I obviously knew this was coming at some point in the near future, but I really wasn’t expecting it last night. It was sweet and very “us” … I really couldn’t ask for a better proposal!
So now that I’m officially engaged, I’ve decided to join the Bee (I was definitely reading tons of posts on this site since that exciting day in September)! I love the idea behind this site … It’ll be great (and extremely helpful!) to share ideas, opinions, etc. with other girls in the same situation (as well as those who have already been through this).
Hopefully I didn’t bore anyone too much with my wordy first post. I’ll leave you with the stuff I know you all want to see …
Sorry if the pictures are huge … I didn’t think they’d come up so large! I also didn’t realize my hands looked so terrible until I started taking pictures last night … I guess I need to start moisturizing regularly! (I’ve already taken care of the ridiculously awful nails.)
