    I cried. I was a little shocked because he did it at a really random time, but I was so happy. I had always hoped for a surprise proposal, but since we had been shopping for the ring together and I knew about the time when it would be coming, it wasn’t such a shock, but I was still super happy when he did it. Even though it sucks that it wasn’t a total surprise, I know I got a ring that I love and he didn’t have to stress too much about whether I would like it or not!

    I was actually expecting it just not at that moment.  So i was in shock for a minute and started bawling.  He had to ask me twice if i was saying yes.

    I laughed. I knew it was coming and had been teasing him about if he had the ring. And then we stopped because we were just in my apartment and he was all “Even if I had the ring, do you really want me to do it right here?” And I was like “No, I guess not…” thinking he was planning a cute Central Park proposal or something. Next thing I knew, he was on his knee asking me to marry him. I laughed because he got me good! And then we hugged and I was jumping up and down. I have definitely gotten misty-eyed later about marrying him. But I was a little too excited and giddy to cry.

    I said several OMG’s. Was in shock. Threw my arms around him and then shed a little tear.

    I just kept saying, “What is this? What is this? This is mine? Are you serious?” when he pulled the ring out. I was genuinely surprised.

    I’m an all of the above too…I mean, I knew a ring was coming b/c we had talked about marriage and he was asking me questions about the style of ring I would like, but I definitely wasn’t expecting him to propose when he did. I just stared at him, like, “uh…are you kidding me?” He didn’t have the ring out until after he had asked. I took one glance at it and started crying and laughing and yelling haha…it wasn’t one of my finer moments. He was just laughing at me.

    I was just super excited. I didn’t cry and I didn’t laugh, I was a little schocked even though I knew it was coming. I don’t actually remember what he said…. I know I hugged him a lot though.

    He proposed in bed first thing in the morning. I was shocked but really tired! I was really happy and I think I even cried a little, but I mostly wanted to go back to sleep!

    Haha, Fiance loves the story of our proposal.  I had fallen asleep while he was showering, apparently he planned to do it all along but couldn’t find the right time when it was just the two of us.  He woke me up out of a sound sleep and had the box in front of me on the bed, all I kept saying was “OH MY F***ING GOD…..I’M GOING TO THROW UP.”

    Well my dad let the cat out of the the bag that Darling Husband had asked permission (Do you see a ring on my finger dad? No? Then shut the eff up!), so after we all finished laughing until tears were streaming down our faces while my dad looked confused, Darling Husband went and got the ring and proposed on my parents front lawn. I cried like a baby and I remember saying “Oh my god, it’s so big!”. It was surreal and amazing, but considering it wasn’t what Darling Husband had planned (or what I had expected, no one expects their dad to propose), so I’m hoping one day Darling Husband will try it again without my dad’s help 😉

    Definitely shocked, even though I had a feeling it was coming, I was still so shocked… I couldn’t get a word out, well except OMG.

    I was giggling, both out of nervousness and glee!
