- Wedding: July 2012
Well, my SO decided he wanted to be a little tricksy and try to throw me off. He thinks it’s so funny to mess with me, especially when it comes to the proposal! Gosh, it can be annoying! Haha! But, he did tell me some extremely wonderful news. He actually asked my dad’s permission for my hand in marriage on Christmas Eve! He went upstairs to do something really quick and was gone for quite awhile. Well, when he came downstairs he gave me this hug. Now, let me tell you… This hug was probably the most meaningful hug he’s ever given me. There was so much emotion in it. I actually asked him, “What was that for?” Now, at that time I hadn’t known that he had literally just asked my dad. But, he asked him! He also told his grandparents that he asked my dad and that he was going to propose by the end of the year. So, as of right now, only my dad and his grandparents know. He hasn’t told anyone else that I know of. No family members anyway. He told me his grandma will probably blab it to everyone. She loves her gossip! Hehe.
If any of you have read my other post we are supposed to be engaged by the end of this year. That is FOUR days away! Ah!!! I cannot wait! I’m beginning to think it might be a New Years Eve proposal but I’m really trying not to think about it. I still have NO idea what he’s planning but I know it’s going to be special. Everyday I show up to work my coworkers ask me if there’s something I need to show them, hinting at the ring. When I say “no” they flip out more than I do! I’m like girls… it’s okay. It’s going to be special no matter what. And trust me, you’ll know before work the next morning! Haha! I’m half expecting to show up at home after work one night and he has our hangout all proposalled (made up word, you like?) up. He’s not the romantic type though, so I don’t know!
Oh well. I’m just excited that in about a year or so we can start seriously looking at houses. We know what we want in a house. I want a beautiful kitchen and a nice master bath. He wants a big fenced backyard for our doggies. 🙂 We know our price range and where we want to live! I just can’t wait to be looking for real instead of dream browsing! So many things to look forward to!
Hopefully my next post I’ll be able to use FI instead of SO!!!
Happy New Year, everyone! Stay safe!
