Oh Bee’s, I’m FINALLY engaged! Some of you might recall my other posts. Fiance had my ring since JUNE. I knew he had it (he didn’t know I had it) and I drove myself totally crazy waiting.. I thought for sure he would ask on Christmas (nope).. Then NYE (nope). I was heartbroken and started to feel crazy. I eventually told him that if he didn’t hurry it up, I would propose to him!
Well, on saturday we went rock climbing to an area 2.5 from our house. We typically make trips to this area whenever the weather is good. Well, I’ll spare all the details regarding the climbing, but I just wasn’t having a good day in that regard. Fiance says (totally jokingly) If you can send (climbing terminology) this problem, then we can get married!” I laughed and said “Oh sure, three years from now, you’ll propose and say ‘Remember that one day..'” He just smirked and said to trust him. Well, I didn’t send my project. I started to cry. I was a) frustated that I didn’t do what I came to do (I’ve been trying to send this thing for a long time) and b) That I ruined EVERYTHING and I would never get married.
I realize how irrational this is. Which makes it even funnier. Waiting, literally drove me to be an emotional wreck lol. We might also blame aunt flow 😉
So, I decided to call it quits and we just layed on the crash pads and talked (we were the only ones there). He asked me to follow him – I climbed with him to the top of the boulder and we sat there and looked at the view and talked some more. He finally said “You know that you climbing a certain problem has no bearing on whether or not we will get married. I want to prove that by…”
He pulled out the ring and a balled like a little baby! I thought he was kidding! Even though I knew he bought the ring, I was totally taken off guard!
I can’t remember all what he said. But I do know, I’m on cloud 9! He told me that he was afraid the ring (stone size) would be too small. That he wanted to propose a handful of other times, but it never panned out. He was so nervous that he put it off as long as he could (mean! lol)
We are hoping for a (soon) Destination Wedding over Memorial Day weekend! I’m ready to become a Mrs! We’ve been dating 5 years in February and I’m so, so soo ready!
