- Wedding: October 2011
My then-boyfriend proposed on Christmas morning, shortly after we had finished opening gifts with our children. He waited just long enough that I was starting to doubt it was going to happen that morning at all. I had an idea he was going to propose Christmas morning so that we could announce to the family at christmas dinner that evening. When we all got up in the morning (FI, and our son and daughter) we went into the living room to open our stockings and gifts. As I reached my hand into my stocking, I felt a tiny little box!! OMG. Before I even opened it up, I had tears rolling down my face. My FI’s face looked shocked, and then all of a sudden he was holding back laughter. What?? I open the box, and there lies a beautiful, diamond………..necklace. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry! And FI was laughing so hard at me, he loves to tease me so I should have expected that. So the kids starting ripping into their presents and it was a really great time. Every present that got handed to me, I was hoping would be the ring, but no such luck. Finally we were done with presents and everything, we cleaned up all the boxes and wrapping paper, and we started putting together whatever toy our children wanted us to. No ring. WTH??? My FI stretches out on the couch and says, I think there’s something on the kitchen counter for you. So I walk into the kitchen, and on the breakfast bar is a bottle of champagne with two crystal glasses all wrapped up with a bow. I ran towards it, and FI says, “turn around” he’s behind me on one knee with my gorgeous ring and tears in his eyes! So that is my story. Our wedding will be October 9, 2011! that would be thanksgiving in canada-land. and yes, its also a sunday! But the monday following is a stat holiday, so I hope it will all work out.
