- Wedding: May 2016
As of November 10th, I am finally an engaged woman! Though, I had a feeling it was coming up, I still wasnt sure. That night, we were staying with his cousin and her husband. We were getting ready to go out on a date and as I came downstairs, the cousins wanted to take some pictures of us. I hate taking pictures, but its cool anyhow. So, the husband starts snapping photos, while his cousin is videotaping us, just asking us random stuff like how did we meet. Then, eventually, I get annoyed by taking pictures, and I really wanted to go eat (seriously, the reservation was at 9, which is so late for me, lol), so I start pulling away from my now FI, but he keeps pulling me back. His cousin keeps saying ‘just a few more’, and then finally ‘make it REALLY SPECIAL this time, this is your last shot’ to my FI. Then as I am still sitting there confused as all hell get out, he pulls the flower vase from the table next to us and gets down on 1 knee. The ring was sitting right inside a rose. Then, he says his spiel, and he took off my grandmas ring that I wore on the same finger and replaced it with his. The kicker is, he is about to get up, and I realize….he never actually asked me. LOL. Which is so us, because we are super awkward. The ring was custom made since APRIL (which is shocking because he hid this for months from me) and wasnt even done until September. It is a cushion cut morganite with channel set diamonds on the side, and vintage style scrolling underneath the main stone. It is everything I didnt even realize I wanted, but he did so perfect on it.
