I haven’t been on WeddingBee for very long, and this is actually one of my first posts!
My boyfriend (now fiancee! ahh!) and I went to the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, NM last Tuesday. We had to wake up and arrive at the balloon field at 5:30am, and we watched the crews light up their balloons. The finally rose around 7am, and the two of us just laid on the grassy field and watched the hot air balloons sail over us.
It was pretty quiet, so my SO wanted to play a game– the staring contest. What we normally do is have our eyes shut, count down to 3, and then try to keep our eyes as long as possible without blinking. So, we both closed our eyes, and he counted to 3. At 3, I opened my eyes, and he had the ring out and popped the question!
The ring is from Blue Nile, it is the Bella setting. I highly recommend them, we visited the Blue Nile showcase in downtown Seattle’s Nordstrom wedding suite multiple times, and they were incredible! My SO says they were quick and responsive to all the emails he had sent to BN before pulling the trigger and purchasing the ring!
