I can’t believe it but I’m engaged! It happened Saturday afternoon with a surprise picnic. Bees, it’s been surreal. It’s feels like I’m in a dream and I’m just waiting for someone to wake me up. 😀 I haven’t slept much and still letting the news sinks in. I’ll try to keep my proposal story short but definitely plenty of signs leading up to the moment. J
On Saturday, we have tickets to watch a baseball game and still in bed, I had asked him what time we were planning to leave and he answer vaguely, “later.” I thought it was a strange answer since he normally responds back with 12pm or 12.30pm depending if we want to eat beforehand or not. I let it go then we decided to head downstairs to the kitchen to make breakfast. He goes into the coat closet and pulls out a black bag before telling me, he had sold the tickets a few days ago so we can go on a surprise picnic!! I should have suspected something but I didn’t because he also mentioned that we have dinner reservation tonight. This part was when I got suspicious since he was being so secretive. We went to the supermarket to pick up a few things including a six-pack water! And he never buys bottle water in packs!! I told him we can stop by the corner pharmacy and grab a single bottle but he refused saying it was too many stops
While I got ready, he started packing and we were on our way to Roosevelt Island. Once we were there, he mentioned the park had few people. A few mins later, we came to a nice shady area, lay out the blanket and started unpacking the food. It was so peaceful and relaxing. After a few glasses of wine, I cuddle in his arms and we were staring out to the river soaking up the moment. Then, he started saying all these sweet things to me (big red flags!!! but I didn’t wanted to get disappointed so I ignored my head) and asked me if I was happy with him and how much I loved him. Bees, I think at this point, he told me he was really nervous! Haha. Then he asked if this surprise picnic topped it all and I responded, “yes! This outrageous secret picnic tops everything!” LOL, thinking back he must think I’m like the clueless girl ever. 😀
He laughed and said, “oh yea? What about this?” He went into the picnic bag, took out the water bottle and reached for a package wrapped in gift wrapping paper that was under the water all along. Sneaky man I tell you!!! At this point, the shock moment starts to kick in. I still didn’t want to believe what was about to happen. He started to open the gift wrapping paper, takes the ring box out of zip lock bag (he did this because he was so afraid it would get wet) before showing it to me. He had this grin before opening the box to ask me to marry him!!! I covered my mouth and kept saying, “OMG. I can’t believe it!” I started crying and lean forward to hug him then he whisper into my ears that I hadn’t answer him yet. LOL. I couldn’t muster to find my voice to so I nodded my head. It was really the sweetest moment for us and private.
And here’s teh ring porn!! left pic – right after he proposed. right pic- after dinner 🙂
So there you go bees, my sneaky and surprised proposal. Afterward, I had a few mins to call my family before we rushed to get ready for dinner which was a celebration dinner. Not the anniversary dinner I originally had thought. So thanks for all the support everyone! Your time will come soon and it’ll be so worth it! 🙂
