I ma very excited to share that I am oficially engaged to my cuddle buddy! 😀
I had chosen the ring 6 months ago, in March. I knew it was coming, but he definitely took his time… which worked because I was completely blindsided.
We are not the talking on the phone all the time/ texting a ton type, and yesterday he was IM’ing me alllll day, which I found strange. He also mentioned he would go to the gym with me after work, but flaked out when I called him on my way there, saying I would meet him at home. After my workout, he texted me again asking me if I was done. By then I was a bit annoyed, and called him to ask what he needed. He said he wanted me to go to the grocery store and buy mozzarella and strawberries- that should have been my clue, who the hell needs these two ingredients for any kind of recipe-. I obliged, and got home after dark. I saw that there was an orange-ish tinge to the windows, and thought “omg the house is on fire”. I ran upstairs, and… there were a ton of candles lit everywhere. He was leaning against the wall, dressed to the nines- he hates dressing up, so I was impressed.
Still- I gasped, and went straight into survival mode- I wanted to run away! He caught me and asked me to sit on the sofa. I walked towards the living room but kept stopping and turning back, I swear. I finally got there, and he turned on the TV. He had a slideshow of all of our best moments over the past 4 years, and I just started laughing uncontrollably. He had a speech prepared, but I was laughing so much he just read the first 2 or so sentences before dropping to one knee and asking me to marry him. I said “sure, I’ll marry your ass” ! I guess he didn’t mind because I still got the ring. 🙂
