I am now ENGAGED!!!!!
After 4 long years!
He proposed last night — impormptu style! I had made a joke about how I had plans to propose to him since this is 2013 after all and he did not look amused! So when we were driving he made a detour to the top of the hill that overlooks the lights of the town, parked the car and turned to me and said “Rachel. I had planned to do this with an actual ring later this week, but I can’t wait any longer and you’re so impatient…. Will you please marry Me?” And i was like “Are you serious?!” over and over to the point where he got out of the car and got down on one knee because I just couldn’t believe it!The best part is he had a clearance ring from Icing (where i work) thatI had left on the table that he used to do it with to complete the gesture – but I couldn’t see in the darkness of the car and I thought it was a legit ring and freaked out at the size! hahaha. He told me this was my fake ring fro Icing and that tomorrow (today!) we would go pick out a ring together – and we did!
I loved that he was ok with proposing with a prop and let me have a say in the ring — our marriage will be based off our making decisions together — why not start now?!
Even better was the fact he had planned to do it this very way he just did it on a whim which was sweet! And i did not see it coming..proposed to me with “Thrift Shop” blaring in the background cause I had been jamming out during the drive.
THAT’s my kind of story. perfectly imperfect!
She is a beauty! Best part? Everyone thinks she’s expensive and she wasn’t! I am a bargain hunter and knew this is the one I wanted the moment he said we should go look!
