So, I haven’t been on here for long, and only made a few posts here and there… One of them being I’m almost 40 and been with SO for 7.5 years. (8 in June).
Well, we’ve talked about getting married off and on since about 6 months into our relationship, and as time goes by everyone else around us (people that were dating less time then us) are getting married, having kids, etc.. And nothing on this end except, “I’ll ask you when you least expect it.”
So, my 40th birthday was Wednesday the 6th and I was pretty bummed out about it. Not that I was 40 really, but that he had classes all day, until 9:30pm (we both went back to school 2 years ago, so are full time college students, in addition to having guardianship of my niece, and his 2 sons 50% of the time and work.) So, me being bummed was mainly that he wouldn’t even be around, and there was just nothing planned.
So, my birthday passed pretty uneventfully. Me and the 3 kids and some cozying up to Netflix shows. Thursday I have class until 2 and he gets out at 8:30pm. So, around i8 I’m chilling doing some homework and watching Monk! God I love Monk, but anyway….
He gets home from class early and walks in with these 2 HUGE stuffed bears, holding a heart that says “I Love You”. Well, here in Michigan we were getting hit hard with a snow storm and the bears where covered in snow from the walk into the house so I was like… “Awww how cute” and shook the snow off. I told him thank you and I love him too and set the bears next to me on the couch and we just kind of talked about his class and stuff and he says, “What is that? Something just fell” I thought I dropped something on my laptop (I’m a huge klutz) so I look and sitting in between me and the bears is a ring box.
I pick it up and look in it and was like “OHHH, do you know what this is?” and he smiles and says “Yes”. So, I asked, “Do you know what this means?” and he was like “Yes” and come over to the couch and gets down on one knee and says “Will you marry me?” so I said “Ohhh I would LOVE to”.
He managed to definately surprise me and do it when I least expected it!!
And with that at as a soon to be college graduate and recent 40 year old, I’m finally engaged!!!
And the rings…. sorry if the pic is HUGE
