awe cute!  I was totally blindsided when we got engaged (m an old married lady now ;))  I seriously had NO clue it was coming.  Wasnt even thinking about it, I was happy with where we were.  He was super tricky about how he knew what ring I wanted though!

I was completely shocked as well. I had no idea he’d even been ring shopping, let alone had purchased one. I was not expecting a proposal for at least another 6-12 months. FI is good at keeping secrets, I guess–although he said it was one of the hardest things he’d ever done, since we usually tell each other everything 🙂

I was in complete shock. We had ‘the talk’ and i told him to wait til I got a career after college and worked for a year. But it turns out he proposed a few days before graduation. I had this whole personal timeline in my mind that was going to happen for us. He is however a few years older and is established (stable career and bought a house). I was expecting him to propose in a year at least!

I was completely surprised too! We had been talking about it during college, etc, and then moved in together after we graduated. It came up here and there, but finally I dropped the subject because I didn’t seem to be getting anywhere.

Well, we took a trip to NH to climb Mt. Washington (the tallest mountain in the NE) and his brother came with us. The thought didn’t even cross my mind during that trip that he would propose since his brother was there!

We hiked to the top (took 4-5 hours), and after lunch he proposed on the observation deck! His brother was there to take pictures for us! 😀

That’s me (above) saying, “You’ve got to be kidding me! I had no idea!”

FI and I had talked about getting engaged multiple times before so I knew we were going to be at some point.  But based on the timing we’d discussed, I wasn’t expecting anything for another 4 months or so!  I’ve since learned that he had purposefully told me these things so I wouldn’t be expecting it and would be completely surprised when it happened!  My FI is so cute!

I had literally NO IDEA!! We’d talked about having a future together, but never about getting married in any sort of real sense, and we never went ring shopping. Because I used to work for a diamon wholesaler, he was able to gether enough info on what sort of ring I would like, and during a weekend trip while were were sitting in the grass chatting, he popped up on 1 knee!

I had no idea. At all…
But he had no idea either!

Neither of us proposed. We were having a conversation about our future together, and it was our first time telling each other that we wanted it to be forever. We decided on a approximate date right then and there, and we were engaged, and so the planning began! 

A shocker for both of us, haha!
