Bees, I was right my SO (I mean FIANCE) proposed this weekend!
We went back to our hometown and were staying at my parent’s place….Saturday came and went and I was on edge ALL DAY, and nothing. Then Saturday evening my mom mentions that she got an email saying they were having a book sale on campus (she works at the University we both went to), and maybe we should go check it out.
I whined about it, because SO could spend about 80 hours in a bookstore……but he finally convinced me he would only be half an hour.
So we head over on Sunday morning, and we’re walking across campus, and no one is around, and it’s snowing….and I am whining about how cold it was. And all of a sudden he stops me in front of the English building, gets down on one knee, and he says ‘I don’t know if you remember this, but 6 years ago this is the exact spot we had our first kiss….and I knew then that I was in love with you and you were the girl I was going ot marry. We’ve been together for the 6 best years of my life, and I can’t wait for all that are to come….Will you spend the rest of your life with me?”
And I of course burst into tears…it was so perfect! If I had to plan it myself, I could have never made it better!
He also planned the rest of the day for us to go and visit all of our family, so we could celebrate with them all 🙂
Later I come to find out that when we went ring shopping in December, he had already bought my ring! He had picked out the exact same ring I chose for myself, and not only that, but the same salesgirl that “helped me” had sold it to him! God, I was oblivious!
Anywho, thank you so much to all you ladies for your support, and I can’t wait to hear all of your stories!!
