I was going for lunch with my man, got in his car and this happened…
Him: You know how much I love you right? And how you mean everything to me?
Me: Of course
Him: Good. We need to start planning this wedding
Me: *giant over the top sigh* You know where I stand on that
Him: I know baby but we don’t have a lot of time until this year is over. *I tried to say something but he cut me off*, there is a ring and it will be on your finger, I just don’t have it in my hands yet. I can show you the receipt
Me: What are you saying?
Him: Just agree to marry me. Let’s start planning this thing and I promise you from the bottom of my heart that the ring is on its way *He pulled out his wallet and pulls out a receipt (the one I saw a while ago!)*
Me: I don’t want to see it! If you really did buy me a ring surprise me with it
Him: Ok… so will you marry me?
Then at the restaurant he told the server that we just got engaged. Then when we were eating he kept showing all these places he has looked at for possible wedding locations, etc. that he had saved on his phone.

Yay so happy for you! I have been following your posts for a while and how much of an emotional struggle it’s been. I hope when the ring arrives it’s all you’ve dreamed of 🙂

Lol thanks ladies!!! I said I think because I feel totally completely shocked!!! He had tears in his eyes when we were talking and won’t stop hugging me. He kept saying “I told you I would do it when you least expect it”
He said he’s made plans for this weekend to celebrate but he won’t tell me what they are and I’ve already gotten texts from people saying congratulations and his mom called and said she’s so happy for us and she’s really sorry about the ring not being here yet… I didn’t even ask details. STILL IN SHOCK!!
@somethingaquamarine: sure! Thank you! Did I mention I’m still in shock?!

@orchidaloha: Yep…you are engaged! Congrats! It’s so funny how these things work sometimes. I think more often than not it doesn’t happen like in the movies…not even close. Your SO sounds like mine and our “pre-engagement” conversation was kinda similar:
SO shows me a gorgeous ring on his iPad: “So,,I have been making myself sick over this ring for two months. I just need to know if you like it.”
Me: “Ummmm….it’s gorgeous…”
SO: “So if you really like it then I am just going to order it tomorrow ok? And when it get’s here…if it’s awful then we will just send it straight back. K?”
Me: “And what if it’s not awful and I love it?”
SO: “Well obviously then it’s yours and you can have it. I just want you to be my wife. Ok?”
It wasn’t crazy romantic but it sure did make me HAPPY!!! We waited until he had spoken to my parents and the ring actually arrived before telling people. But in our minds we were already engaged the minute this conversation happened.
Congrats to you!!!!! Please please post the ring once you get it in your hot little hands!
