- Wedding: August 2011
Its kind of a long story but its funny so here it goes:
To start off my fiance is British and every year after christmas I would travel there for the past 4 years of dating and we would celebrate new years out there. So it was christmas and I was at my house with my parents and she had a bunch of gifts for me to bring over and I was beginning to get annoyed with her. The gift for my Fiances mom needed to be in my carry on (i had no idea the engagement ring was inside the box for his mom!) So I began to freak out saying if I have problems with security I am going to throw the gift away and tell his mom that airport security took it. Everyone was just telling me its fine nothing will happen. Luckily nothing did! (imagine if I threw my own engagement ring away! eek!) SO I get to England his parents knew and she took the ring out and put it in a drawer and then my fiance took it.
We then went to London to visit for a friends birthday and the day after the birthday we went sight seeing around London, cold rainy London. As we were on our way to Hyde Park which has a lights festival (which is where he was planning on proposing) We got splashed by one of the red busses so I (being annoying) got frustrated and said I was done for the day (so he told everyone never mind we arent proposing today) and we went on our way. Then we went to another friends house for New Years Eve. When we got there I was cold and so I put his jacket on he immediately yelled at me to take it off (which is so unlike him but the other box the ring came in was in his pocket) ***(a quick background my second parents own a jewelry store and I have worked there so I obviously know the boxes and would question why he had one!)
Anyways it was finally new years eve 2010 and at midnight we hugged and kissed and then someone was supposed to be right next to me to hug me. Everyone around me wasnt really celebrating but I was jumping up and down saying happy new years not realizing that no one else was! My friend Olivia hugged me and then spun me around and my Fiance was on his knees. It was the craziest moment of my life and I couldnt believe what was going on! I know this is long and crazy but I thought it was a fun story to tell and figured someone would enjoy it!
