Well Bees, he totally surprised me! On Wednesday after work we had dinner reservations at a nice restaurant downtown. During dinner we were talking about the classroom that we met in back in college, and FI (EEK!) said he didn’t remember which building it was in. So I recommended that after dinner we go to campus and we can check out the old stompin’ grounds and take a peek in the classroom. There is also a cool rooftop terrace he asked about, and I told him I would show him where it is. So after dinner we head to campus, to the building that our classroom was in, and when we get to the classroom itself the lights are all off but the door is unlocked! FI and I went in, took a few pictures and sat in our old seats. While I was sitting in my seat (the row in front of him) he said my name and when I turned around he was holding a beautiful ring and asked me to be his wife!
THEN….. We left the classroom and I found out that he had been working with Campus Security to make sure the room would be unlocked for him so he could propose that night! He made it seem like it was MY idea to go to the campus, but it was his plan all along! (Sneaky boy!) After we left the building, FI said he had some champagne waiting at home so we headed to our place. When we walked in, ALL of our friends and family were hiding in our dining room and totally surprised me! The whole place was decorated and FI had arranged to even have my coworkers there. I was absolutely surprised and it was wonderful! We all partied for a few hours and then we had ALL of Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate and bask in our newly engaged glory. I am on cloud 9 and so happy to be engaged to the love of my life!
Here’s some ring pics! He did so good! He created a pinterest account so he could look at the styles I like and he TOTALLY hit the nail on the head!
