Somewhere around day 1700 of our relationship (4 years and nearly 8 months, for those who are curious), I can announce that my SO proposed. I’m engaged!
My FI proposed on December 28, the last day we were on our Christmas cruise. We went on a walk at night time and sat on the romantic chairs in the adult-only area, where we could lie back and cuddle. I was a bit sad that it didn’t happen, because he had told me before that he was planning to propose before he found out he couldn’t get an Amora for a couple months. However, he managed to surprise me, which was a difficult feat after this long!
I didn’t want to get up and meet his family, so I asked him for a couple more minutes of cuddling. Little did I know that when we got up, he would get down on one knee under the full moon and the stars!
We went to call my mother, then met up with his extended family for champagne.
I don’t have my “official” ring yet, but it will be MoissaniteCo’s double prong cathedral engagement ring with a 7mm cushion cut Amora. (The curious can check it out here: http://www.moissaniteco.com/double-prong-cathedral-cushion-moissanite-engagement-ring-p-11896.html if they want). For now, I have a band that he bought for the sake of having something. If I can get photos to start uploading, I’ll post one later.

Thank you everybody!
@qwerty2k1: I will definitely post photos when I get it! I spent lots of time looking for real life photos of it as well, also with little luck. However, I did find some online videos of it that convinced me that it would be amazing. You may have already seen them, but they’re here http://betterthandiamond.com/discussion/ubbthreads.php/topics/659711/2 in the second post.
I’m hoping I don’t have to wait too long, I want it! haha
Anyway, the photo uploader is working today (yay!) so here is my temporary band:

Quick question… What’s the “waiting list?” Like is it an actual list you put yourself on while waiting to be engaged?

@Rubbs: Yes, there actually is a waiting list. I believe there is a sticky about it at the top of the waiting forum.
