Well ladies, I’d first like to thank you all for talking me off the ledge for the past year and a half! I came to the bee after googling something like “tired of waiting”, and you wonderful ladies have been so helpful in this very long journey. Now, to the important stuff!
Yesterday was my 30th birthday and it started out great. SO woke me up at like 3 am and had me open a gift that he’d put in my stocking. That was a pair of tickets to a comedy show on 12/21. That’s pretty exciting and then he says that there mightbe something else for me after work…..and then began ring watch 2013! Ihad a great day at work being celebrated by my coworkers. They brought me huge number balloons, and a pancake breakfast (my favorite!) Then my department went out for ice cream and we got to leave early. So after work, I get home and SO has just returned from the gym, but he tells me that I should go look in my stocking because there’s something else in there for me. So I go running and there’s something weirdly shaped that’s wrapped up but when I shake it, I swear it sounds like a can of soup…so then I start thinking that it’s not really going to happen (which propmpted a nutty post in the SIUP thread from me last night worrying that he wasn’t going to do it). Turns out that was just to throw me off!
Anyway, we go to dinner and FINALLY around 11, when we’re just relaxing watching something on TV, he turns to me and says “are you sure you really want to spend the rest of your life with me?” and I’m blubbering “of course! I’ve known since the day I met you that you were the one” and then he drops to both knees (lol) and before he can ask me to marry him, I lunge for the remote and scream…wait the tv is too loud I can’t hear you! hahaha. After I hit mute, he asked me to marry him! and I said yes! OMG that’s a whole lot of words..so thanks for reading! I have loved being a member of the waiting bees! it’s such a wonderful place for support. I’ll be sticking around here until I can figure out what I’m supposed to do next lol. oh, and a picture of course! sorry it’s so large and not a great shot. I’m supposed to be working or something!
