- Wedding: April 2013
Update on my last post: “I need to paint my nails”
Well, I did and we went shopping yesterday! It was such a romantic day!!! I was not expecting any of this. He said he was taking me to the store to pick out some earrings for Vday and casually mentioned we could try on rings.
We walk in the store and I am trying to play it cool and check out the earrings when I see my SO make a beeline for the diamond rings, totally skipping the earrings. I walked over to the section he was looking at and the sales lady asked if she could help us. We found several that we liked and wanted to try on and see pricing for. I tried on the first ring and HOLY COW…it looked like a stunner. It actually intimidated me a little. So we try on several others until…I put THE ring on!!! It was like fireworks went off!!! I took a ton of pictures because I thought he just needed to know what to buy in the future. I couldn’t stop smiling and didn’t want to give it back to the sales lady! My SO loved….In fact, he loved it so much, he surprises me and says, “Well, surprise I’m buying it!” AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
I was so shocked and beyond words happy!!!! We got to bring the beauty home!! It was like a scene out of the movie Sweet Home Alabama. Then he surprises me and tells me he is taking me to eat sushi (the place we ate for our first date). AHHHHHH!!!! So sweet and romantic!!! (Ladies, my man does not do romantic things usually, so this is beyond sweet)
We had an unbelievable dinner talking about how much we lovethe ring, talking over what type of wedding we want, how he wants to ask my dad before he “officially” proposes, how excited we are to tell family, etc…
We get home and neither one of us can stop looking at the beauty of a ring! He can’t wait to tell everyone after its official. He told me today that he needs to call my dad because he wants to tell his family at the end of the month when we go to Florida!! AHHHHH!!! That means he’s going to do it within the next two weeks!!!
It is so sweet because it is like our little secret and I couldn’t imagine things being any more romantic or sweet!! After 4.5 years he has really made up for all that waiting I have been doing. He told the sales lady that he wanted me to what I wanted because I deserved it for waiting so long on him 🙂 I love him and the fact that he pulled off this surprise makes me so beyond happy and finally ok with all the emotions I have dealt with over the past year waiting.
Thank you all for your support over the past couple months!! The Weddingbee ladies are awesome!! Good luck to everyone!!
