Ladies, I am so excited to finally say that after 5.5 years of being together the love of my life finally proposed to me yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon FI (ahhh!) told me that he wanted to give me an early Christmas present. I had just gotten out of the shower so I got dressed, dried my hair, straightened my hair, cut my toe nails (haha) and changed the sheets on my bed all while he waited. I was going to start to put my makeup on but he said “Nope, you’re getting your present now.” He told me to go in the living room and sit on the couch, he goes into his closet and brings out a box about the size of a box of greeting cards. I open up the gift and it is a tin of Sarris Chocolates, he tells me to open up the tin, I do and there is chocolate like usual and a white ring sized box in the middle. I stared at it for a second and I say “C What is this” he said “You know what it is, open it.” I open it and he gets on one knee and asks me to marry him. I didn’t even look at the ring, I threw it to the side and I tackled him, while crying very hard and screaming “Yes yes omg Yes!!!” We hugged and kissed for a few minutes when we realized that I didn’t put the ring on yet. We get the box and he slipped the ring on my finger, and it fit perfectly!
I attached a picture, obviously it’s not winning any awards. I am going to read that thread about “How to take pictures of your ring” and then try to take some more at work today.
