That’s right–I am engaged!! I know I haven’t been posting on this Waiting board long, but we have been dating for nearly 6 years.
He COMPLETELY surprised me! Some of you may or may not know, but my SO and I are in a long distance relationship right now. I have a plane ticket booked to visit him next week, so I was thinking next week could possibly be it. Last night was supposed to be a girl’s night with my mom and I. We were sitting with my stepfather at a bar, waiting for a friend of my stepfather’s to meet up with him. My mom started smiling and waving. I turned to look, and my SO walked through the door! My jaw dropped. My mom set it up so I would be available.
My SO took me out to dinner at an awesome restaurant called Eleven Eleven Mississippi. After there, we went over to the Muny (an outdoor theater in our hometown). It’s a really special place for us, we’ve gone to so many shows there. We walked in and went to the fountain. Nobody else was there. We looked for the brick that his family bought in honor of his grandmother, and we found it. He kneeled down there, in front of the fountain, and proposed. I said ‘yes’ about a milllion times!!
The ring is my dream ring (thankfully–I had been having some nightmares!). It’s a .75ct round diamond with channel set princess diamonds and round diamonds. It is the ring I picked out a year ago. We celebrated with our families and have been making quite a few phone calls!
I will post pictures of the ring when I get a chance. I just want to thank everyone for being so welcoming! This is such a great board!!!
