- Wedding: October 2014
After just requesting to be placed on the list, after my boyfriend and I looked at rings a few weeks back… he proposed this past Saturday! I was beyond surprised and couldn’t be happier.
He did it over at his sister/brother-in-laws place, as 2 of his nephews were involved in the asking. We had plans to go over there that night anyway, to eat and have a few drinks before heading out to a hockey game, so it wasn’t unusual that we went there.
We got over there, and both boys came out their parents room in super cute suit and tie outfits, and the oldest (Owen – 5) was carrying a gift bag. My boyfriend said that the present was for me, and said I should open it. As I’m doing this, he gets down on one knee, and has each boy on his sides. I see the box at the bottom and look up at him, with tears starting to form. He said I could put it on, and then asked me, “So what do you say?”. I then asked him, “Well, what are you asking me?” “Will you marry me?” “Of course, yes I will!” I then got a hug from each of the boys and kissed my now fiance!
His parents were the next to find out, since they got to the house next. Then his brother/sister-in-law, and then my parents. We spent the rest of the night with friends and family at the hockey game – and everyone was celebrating.
Here are a couple pics of the ring (sorry for the quality!).
And here is one with the boys after it happened. They move quick, so this was one of the better ones! Owen is the one looking at me with big smiles, and I’m holding Dylan (he’ll be 2 in May).
