So tonight I got a phone call from a very good friends boyfriend. He is currently stationed in Afghanistan and has been there for 8 months. He’s been telling my friend that he is coming home in June and she has been planning a big welcome home party for him. However, he called me tonight to tell me he’s actually coming home on April 8th and no one knows. Her birthday is on April 9th and he is planning on proposing!!!! Yay! They’ve been through so much. They’ve been together for 8 years and 6 of those years were LDR while he was in the military.
He has the entire thing planned out, as long as I am willing to help. Which DUH of course I am! She’s going to be 30 so he wants me to plan a big surprise party for her, which her mom already is so…check!
He emailed me a picture of the ring that he wants to get her and will be getting me a check so that I can purchase it for him. I do however, need to figure out her ring size because he has no idea and the ring he wants to get her has a pave band, so no resizing :/
Then we will give her a surprise which will be a special video message from him wishing her a happy bday and what not, but he will actually be standing behind her and then he will propose! It’s perfect right??? Eeks! I’m so excited for her. I have to keep it a secret, but here will be the perfect place to let out my excitement!

We were both crying talking to eachother. At one point he said, “Every single day I imagine what it will be like to see her in that white dress knowing that the most beautiful women in the world is going to make me the happiest man ever by allowing me to make her my wife” we both sniffled and then he said “You think she’ll say yes right?” He’s so cute!

That is amazing!!!! You better get the ring fast if he wants to propose in just a few weeks!
p.s. I have a pave band and you CAN resize… just can’t be an eternity band 🙂

@CorgiTales: Really? Mines pave and I was told they couldn’t resize it because it might make the stones pop out? I will have to ask then. However, I know that a lot of places will allow you to return the ring if it wasn’t a special order. It’s from a very high end local jeweler and I’m sure they would take it back once I tell the story, but hopefully I can figure the size out.
