- Wedding: July 2014
So I posted the other day about being sad we had to cancel our date. Being full time students that work opposite schedules (I work normal 8-4 he works third shift) its usually very hard for us to have real dates this particular one involved being out of town over night. He told me the day before our date that work called and he had to come in the night we were to be out of town. He said he would reschedultrout reservations. He told me all of this on my way to pick up my best friend to shop. I told her about it because she knew we were looking forward to the date. She suggested her and I go to dinner that night instead and that we should dress really nice and have our own “romantic dinner” lol. So the next day she comes to my apartment to pet ready and pick me up for dinner. I asked my boyfriend to come and he said he didn’t really want to he was going to play the Xbox I bought him for Christmas while I had a girls night. I left with my best friend right away because she insisted we get ready at her house instead because she forgt the pictures she needed me to edit there. She rushes me to get ready and makes sure I dress nice (I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of person normally lol). She drives me down to lake Michigan which is a bit of a walk from the restaurant we agreed to go to. We normally drive by Lake Michigan in the winter before or after dinner anyway so this wasn’t so odd. She pulled off to the side of the road and blinfolded me. My heart just about pounded out of my chest at this point. She drove around and for awhile than got me out of the car and we walked (I’m still blind folded). She tells me shes going to walk away and leave me blind folded. I feel a second person behind me taking my blind fold off. He turns me around. I see the love of my life staring back at me looking super nervous and so incredibly adorable. We’re in the middle of the park by the beach that has little water spouts in the concrete whih was off because its winter. This was also only a little way away from where him and I met for the very first time two and a half years ago. He tells me he loves me and that we’ve been through a lot both good and bad times but he had a question for me. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was in total shock and so incredibly happy. I barely got my answer out and pulled him up for a hug. He had to ask if he could put my ring on yet lol. He had invited my parents and sister. They recorded te whole thing and got a picture of him actually proposing to me. It turns out he didn’t have to work so we walked over to there we originally had reservations and he took my family, best friend, and I to a fancy dinner. We than got to stay at the suuuuper nice hotel we had planned on staying at. I would have been happy with nothing not even a ring but his proposal was absolutely perfect, my ring is a beautiful 1ct trillion cut moissanite.
Its soooo crazy calling him my fiancé and thinking about all the things we get to do in the next year and a half until we get married! I can’t stop smiling! We decided that on every 27th of December we will go stay at the same hotel and have dinner in the same restaurant.
*Im on my iPhone so sorry about any crazy typos and I can’t figure out how to post pictures from my phone lol but I hope to later!*
