Its time for me to shut down my hopeful campaign for engagement. I’ve been patiently waiting, occasionally not so quietly, for a while now and . . . . it finally happened!!! Last night on the best Wednesday ever he proposed and I accepted!!!
It wasn’t a huge production, but very sweet considering my SO is incredibly unromantic. He very casually asked if I wanted to go out to dinner and not cook since we’ve been making a strong effort to eat in more. I happily accepted and we were supposed to go out after my grad. school presentation, but not realizing it was important I went out to grab a drink with a friend. I called and asked him to have a drink with us instead. He, annoyed, hemmed and hawed a bit, but finally showed up. We had a drink with my friend and her boyfriend and left to go to dinner.
He took me to one of my favorites in town and told me he was sorry for being a butt lately. We recently had a big talk about him being too stressed about the little things and working too much. Anyway, after dinner we walked back to the car. He opened the door for me, but was still standing in front of me. He got down on one knee on the icy/snowy curb and told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and proposed. Of course I said yes!
I spent the rest of the night sporadically reminding him that we were going to get married and showed him my secret wedding file; it was perfect!!

Thanks everyone!!! We are waiting to tell our friends until tomorrow, but I couldn’t stop myself from telling everyone here.
The wait was totally worth it, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Any my ring is amazing!! He told me all about his search for the right one. I’m working on the ring porn, I just can’t seem to get a pic that isn’t terrible.

Congrats!!! That’s too cute, I love that he didn’t go overboard on the proposal – sometimes simple and intimate is just perfect! Lol, what did he say about the secret wedding file? I’m wondering how to reveal mine when the time is right
