I was beyond hoping for a holiday proposal for the last few months and then about a week and a half ago after a long and tear filled conversation I came to the realization that is was just not going to happen on the timeline I’d thought. He totally fooled the crap out of me. I was upset but understood and was willing to wait because I love him and I wasn’t going anywhere.
Well last night we were supposed to go to my brother’s for a Christmas party and I had gotten out of work early at noon, so I spent all day getting wrapping done, cooking things in my crockpot and he just was so on edge about this fedex package that hadn’t come. I thought it was his moms presents (that he’d mistakenly sent to our house instead of theirs to begin with) so I just kind of brushed it off. And then he said “If they havent come by the time we have to go to the party you’ll have to go without me. I have to be here to sign for it.” I was thinking “what do you have to sign for fedex for? Don’t they usually just leave it?” So I just brushed it off and then later it did come about 3:30 (not 10am as promised I guess).
So he says “I’ll give you one of your Christmas presents early but you need to go upstairs for a minute.”. So I thought he had to wrap it. So I’m up there doing my makeup and all of a sudden he calls me down and I yell “Hold on I’ve only got my eyes done, I look like a wacko.” I go downstairs and he’s in front of our Christmas tree that has a big white tree skirt (I’ve been looking for weeks for a big one) and then all of a sudden from underneath it lights up and says “Marry Me” in huge red letters. And I was standing there open mouthed and he got down on one knee and said my name and asked me and me being me said “Holy shit!” and then I think I said yes like 3x and I was looking at the ring like it was going to disapear. He then tells me he got it all on video 🙂 So my future children and grand children will hear how their mother said “holy shit” to their father/grandfathers proposal!
Ring Specs that I know: .90c assher cut center stone, 2 round cut side stones, tcw is like 1.15. And then it has 10 smaller pave diamonds on the band which is funny because 13 is my lucky number and my entire ring is 13 diamonds 🙂
