I knew, but he kept me on the edge of my seat! We had talked about marriage for a while, had bought the ring, and he said that he would propose by our 3 yr anniversary. Our anniversary came and we had a wonderful evening – but when we went to bed, he still hadn’t popped the question! I was so upset (but trying to hide it, of course) and he asked me what was wrong, wasn’t it a great night? Was something missing? I said no, everything was wonderful. *sniffle*… Then he pulled me to his chest, told me how much he loved me and how much I meant to him, and asked me if I would marry him. I said yes, covered him in kisses, then went to go blow my nose! LOL…   We are such homebody’s, he is the ultimate procrastinator, and I am a very stereotypical emotional girl – so, he proposed at 11:59pm on our “deadline” with me in tears. It was perfect! 🙂

I knew he’d bought the ring because I saw the withdrawl from our savings account but I didn’t know when he’d actually get it or when he’d propose. We had to go downtown early one moring and he said he wanted to take pictures of the club where we met 26 years before to show the friend we were going out of town to visit that day. He proposed in the exact spot where I first talked to him!

I wasnt surprised in the least, but he will never know that. I knew it was coming and was really struggling with the waiting. We had an incredible amount of drama when it came to chosing a ring thanks to budget constraints. THEN he told me I had unknowingly shut down his original proposal 2 mo earlier bc I told him not to propose at a sporting event… boy did that make the wait 1000x worse! 

In the end, I knew something was up the weekend he proposed bc he was ADAMANT that my best friend come visit when his two friends were also visiting (I was opposed bc that is one PACKED apartment). He had made jokes before about proposing at the lincoln memorial since we are both from Chicago… so when we started climbing the steps I had a hunch. When he was stuggling with something as we were taking cutesy couple pictures I knew, and when he actually bent down I still was so shocked despite everything bc OMG IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING! Apparently I kept stepping back so he had to pull me in closer, people were staring and whispering before hand, etc but I had no idea. He was the only thing I saw.

The ring was ready three weeks later, and I wore a silver and cz stand in til then.
