So I just wanted to share my story with you lovely ladies this fine day because you all have given me so many great stories! Anyway, a little background on MrMeese and I: We have been informally engaged and planning the wedding since Dec 2010. However, we didn’t have the ring situation figured out, and he still wanted to do a proper proposal. So last month we finally decided that we were going to use his mom’s ering center stone and put it in a new setting. I fell in love with the Heart on Fire Felicity Queen Anne setting, but we didn’t know if we wanted to fork out that much money for a setting. Anyway, we decided that we couldn’t get away from it and everything else we found couldn’t compare. So! We got the ring, and the waiting began in earnest.
This last monday was 4/11/11, and I had a pretty crazy day. MrMeese and I are both finishing up our degrees. Anyway, I had just finished playing a soccer game and was heading back to my car (all sweaty and stinky mind you) and up comes this suburban all decked out with lights and flowers and MrMeese’s best friend driving. He asked me to come for a ride, and I knew what this was all about. Long story short, we went all around the city and he drove me to all the places that we really important in MrMeese and my relationship, and at each place there was one of our good friends with flowers and a clue for the next location that I had to figure out. The last stop was by a beautiful lake with all the stars out and he was down by the water waiting for me 🙂 He told me how much he loved me and that he was asking me to continue the adventure we had started and got down on one knee and pulled out my ring! Of course I said yes. I had such a good time and I’m so happy that I don’t have to wait anymore!
