Both Fiance and I were sick on Christmas Eve last year.  I was moreso still than he was so I had a squeaky voice and stuffy nose.  It was awesome.  Anyways, I kept saying “nu uh” over and over again.  It was so surreal nor did I believe it was real (he was against marriage and told me so when we first started dating). Needless to say, I was in shock.  I wanted to cry, but I couldn’t.  FI had to remind me to say yes and he helped me put the ring on my finger.

My reaction on Facebook (after calling family) was “HOLY SNICKERDOODLES! Engaged status!” with a picture of the ring on my finger.

I cried and laughed I think, and grabbed him and hugged him. I know there was definitely tears! Good ones of course! He got on one knee at our favourite park. I was totally surprised and had no idea it was coming!

@OrchidsandCandles: No.  I never, ever thought he’d propose in a million years – especially as soon as he did.  We were together a little over a year.  I thought if he WAS going to propose, he’d want to wait until we were “settled” down a bit more.  It was an amazing surprise and Christmas present.

ETA: We never spoke about weddings/proposals/marriage.   I never looked at rings or gave him ideas.  I would joke around with him once in awhile, but nothing serious.

I just got a HUGE smile on my face and said, “yes” in a really soft (funny sounding) voice, lol.

First I said: Are you serious? He nodded, a little misty-eyed.
Then I said: Of course. 
Then I said: Oh my God. Oh my god. I can’t believe this is happening. 
Then I started crying and said: You want me to be your wife? That is so amazing.
Then I said: Are you sure?

He was a little annoyed at the last one 🙂

@OrchidsandCandles: It’s definitely how I saw myself reacting. I usually cry when I have a lot of emotion, whether it’s good emotion or bad. I’m already looking ahead to when I say my vows and how I’m going to contain my tears. Maid/Matron of Honor has joked that she is going to need to keep a bunch of kleenex in her bra, but I think she may really have to! lol

I didn’t breathe.

It was very, very unexpected;  I just looked at him and made sure he said what I thought he said; and meant it.

 

I managed a “yes, I will” and then there was much hugging, holding, and kissing.

 

No tears, no squeals; just a moment of complete breathless surprise.

I said OMG a couple of times and said yes excitedly

It was a huge surprise for me. I had mentioned one or twice about us heading in the direction but he always hated talking about it. I cried sooo much and forgot to say yes!

  I thought I would cry but I didn’t. I did ask after he held the ring out for a little bit “well are you going to put it on?” He forgot about that part and I didn’t want to be greedy and snatch it from him!  Mostly we were just really happy and excited to call our parents (all of whom already knew)
