So this Saturday night my SO asked me if I wanted to go out for diner which is pretty normal for us. We go to a place I haven’t been before and he’s acting pretty much normal. As we are leaving the house he has to run back in for a jacket because he was afraid it was getting cold. (He told me later he need to carry the boxes)
We arrive for diner and our table isn’t ready. SO suggests we get a cocktail and quickly agree. The hostess then says she has a table but it not the one he requested if we wanted to be seated now. I agree and he says no we’ll wait because its in the middle of the dining room. I found that a little odd but nothing really surprising the resturant was kind of crowed. (He later told me he didn’t want to be so exposed)
As we are waiting on our food I launch into this story about how I am in the last week of preparing for a show (I direct) and that I had given the kids a speach about never making any big decisions or breaking up or starting up with anyone during this type of stress. And that should I do something crazy like try to break up with him in the next week he should ignore me. He smiled and reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a jewlry box and sat it on the table…I of course look at it and say “I’m not aloud to make decisions” He says well I can open it or not its my choice and that anything could be in that little box. So I sat there for two minutes practically hyperventaliting about what to do. Finally I open the box and inside is the exact ring I NEVER wanted. Its gold, with a tiny band and even smaller round cut diamond. According to my SO I looked shocked and was completly speechless. He then said “Okay, I can’t torcher you any more” and pulls out an identical box. This time he says “will you marry me? If so open the box.” I do and I found my perfect ring.
I didn’t think he had even gone shopping yet… I was shocked and thrilled and the proposal was exactly perfect for us. He of course has been teasing me all day about how I didn’t say yes to the first ring…
I’ll attempt to post a picture of my ring. (the real one)
