This bee is engaged!! You heard it right, number 129 is engaged to her high school sweetheart! <3
I totally didn’t expect it! I even posted in the thread titled, “Who thinks their getting engaged today?!??!” with a quick “Not me.” My SO had even reminded me a few days ago that he didn’t like the idea of holiday proposals. He’s the proof! Haha! Unprovoked, mind you!
Of course, I had HOPED it would happen, but I never thought it would. I kid you not, I even made a special trip to the store to buy waterproof mascara, because I really wanted my hopes to turn into reality.
My SO and I—Wait! I mean fiancé (!!!) planned to have a nice Valentine’s Day in rather trying to go out and deal with the crowds. We made sushi for the first time, which was fun. So, after the food was ready and table was all set, I quickly went to the bathroom. I came back to the table and he said “are you ready?” (As in, ready to eat.) I looked at him and said “Yes”. He asked again, which was odd because I had already answered. He just looked at me. Okay… This is when I knew! My eyes scanned the entire table, hoping that something shiny would catch my eye. I found something shiny!! The ring in the heart-shaped tray used for the sushi.
I immediately started crying. (I’m even tearing up as I type now). I could not believe it. I put on the ring and kissed my then-boyfriend before he said softly between kisses, “will you marry me? I whispered back through tears, “yes.” After a while, I asked him “are you sure?” and he literally laughed and reassured me he was sure.
We were so happy we could hardly eat. I was pretty much in shock the whole time. I was shaking and beyond happy, words can’t describe it. It really doesn’t even feel real. Every now and then it hits me that I’m engaged! The guy I “liked” 7 years ago is going to be my husband. Wow. It just hit me again!
And now for some ring porn and specs! It’s a ¾ carat 4-pronged diamond solitaire with with a nice and high profile! I love it!

@lovelee1: Yay! gorgeous ring! Congrats!
I was a waiting bee at this time last year so I like to come back to the waiting boards and see that bees have gotten their proposals!
My man tried to psych me out too…he proposed on Christmas – NIGHT! We opened presents together in the morning and I thought if it would happen it’d be then, but nope! 8 hrs later lol

@playdohpants: Hehe I can’t believe he tricked me! I totally thought he was serious about not getting a Valentine’s proposal. I guess he changed his mind about holiday proposals! I think they are romantic.
@Robyn0214: hehe I did! I’m so glad that my buying waterproof mascara wasn’t for nothing! I just had a feeling that it might come in handy!
