I am beyond excited! He totally surprised me this weekend, I was completely expecting him to take me ring shopping like we’d originally planned, and that I would know exactly what was going on. He caught me completely off guard too, which I love!
He got my best friend to distract me last week and take me out for dinner, so he could drive an hour away to ask my parents if he could marry me. He got my sister to make sure my parents would be home that night. Then he planned a gorgeous date for us on Saturday night, which got ruined because I came down with a wicked cold on Friday. I spent the whole weekend in bed, so last night he convinced me to go out to eat and all I wanted was to go to the greasy spoon down the street and get a burger and fries.
He managed to convince me that we should go somewhere a little nicer than that, so I chose Red Lobster. Hardee har, don’t get me wrong, I lurve me some Cheddar Bay biscuits, but if I’d known I was being proposed to shortly after I probably would have picked somewhere a little nicer. After dinner we went and got a coffee (I got tea), which is totally our norm and sat in the car talking – again something we do pretty often, so I still had no clue. Out of nowhere he starts saying “I love you and I can’t wait for us to start our life together” and I STILL had no idea. He pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him, of course I said YES!! I’m still in shock that everyone knew but me, and that it managed to stay a secret!!
Bee’s, I’m on cloud 9!
