hey – i’m engaged! it’s a cute story (not the most romantic but it suits us so well…..)
some of you may remember my “grandma’s ring” thread a few weeks ago (i knew he was going to give me his grandma’s ring – thought it would be on my birthday next week). nope. it was last night while we were watching “LA Ink”. lol. we’d finished dinner and i asked him to open my nightly chocolate treat (a box of “smarties” – canadian/british chocolate). he gave it back to me and said “sweetie, i need you to do me a favour tomorrow”. i was like “sure, what?” munching away on my smarties and watching kat while a doctor looked at her spider bite on her eye while i’m going “ew, that’s SO gross!” so he just set out this little red ring box on the table and says “i need you to go get this sized”. i think i either screamed or gasped really loud. can’t remember. just remember my heart like pumping out of my chest – i couldn’t believe it (was SO not expecting it – duh!). so he put it on me (or i put it on? no idea!) and i said “hey buddy! you have to ASK me!” he said “well we’ve known we’re getting married for ages…. it’s so obvious….” i said “i know but you still have to ask me proper-like”. so he did and i said “yes please”. the end. smiles and giggles and happiness…….
love the ring. LOVE IT! i think it’s 1920’s? white gold. centre stone is about a carat i believe….. it’s a little big so i DO have to get it sized. lol. it’s SO my style it’s not even funny (i love art deco)…… i couldn’t be happier…… (please excuse icky nails – haven’t had time to do them!)
(PS: i have MANY tattoos and the boy has NONE. doesn’t like them. while we were watching the show before he “proposed”, i was bugging him about it and he said if we got married he might be talked into getting a wedding ring tattoo….. i got all happy because he talked about getting married out loud….. it was cute!)
