- Wedding: October 2011
So, yes, I’ve been planning and on the forums for a while. But our engagement wasn’t official because of the long distance between us, we had to wait until he could make a trip out from CA to VA and have the “official” talk with my parents (who already knew, but we wanted to pay them that respect), and then he would do the official proposal.
So, he flew out on Friday and we’d picked out a ring together, so I knew that it was probably coming, but it was still great, and feels SO WONDERFUL to have the ring on my finger, and be able to announce it to all of our family and friends! 😀
Finally, after our long wait, and keeping all the wedding plans a secret, it’s official! Two nights ago, amidst lots of giggling, he asked me to be his wife!
I knew he was upstairs talking to my parents, and then he came down and hugged me.
I said: “How did it go?”
“Are we going to go back up?”
“Did you tell them you were going to ask now?!”
“I don’t know…do you have something to ask me?”
“I don’t know…should I get down on one knee?”
“It’s up to you!”
“Okay, I think I should.” so he then starts to get down on one knee, but apparently it was uncomfortable, so he ripped all of the contents of his pocket out and threw them across the floor of the room. SO FUNNY. I couldn’t stop giggling, then he pulled out the ring and asked. And I said YES!
Then we ate celebratory LEGO cupcakes. Yum.
My ring is sooo beautiful. 😀
