I have a super casual story! We were on a cruise last December and I had known about my ring too and he was waiting FOREVER to give it to me (purchased in august). I kind of expected it on the cruise because we don’t do much so I thought if he did it at a fancy dinner or something one day I’d expect it.. but i guess I could say the same about the cruise lol. I casually joked about getting it on the cruise and he kind of told me it wasn’t happening pretty bluntly so he knocked me down there… sad face.. then in the airport on our way there he asked if I was serious about thinkng it was happening on the cruise and I said kind of.. and he explained that it would be difficult to bring the ring, he doesn’t trust it to be checked in his luggage, I go through his carry on frequently for things so where would he put it? Makes sense… sad face again.. 

We were in the room on the cruise one night and I had taken a nap and was half awake and he kept trying to wake me up and was annoying the crap out of me lol. I finally got up and sat on the edge of the bed, rubbed my eyes and when I opened them, he was on his knee with the ring In his hand lol. 

I was speechless and idk what he even said but he got choked up and then I said yes and then I bawled. Haha. 

I was in PJs. 

Afterward he kept saying how he just wanted the ring out of his pocket basically and had planned something more elaborate but he was nervous because he had the ring just loose in his pants pockets for 3 days at that point with no box. So he kept bugging me and bugging me about re-doing the proposal because I deserved better and finally I gave it back and said “fine”

Totally didn’t expect it back until sometime at home. 

The next night we were going to the dressy dinner on the cruise and there are photographers all around the ship to take pics of people dressed up. We stopped at the first one which was in front of a giant Christmas tree so I thought maybe he’ll do it, his heart is RACING and I LOVE Christmas and there’s photographers.. hmm.. nope. Didn’t do it there. 

We stopped at the 2nd photo station and a couple poses in the guy had me face away from my now Darling Husband like a prom pose, so I did. I felt my Darling Husband grab my hi p s and spin me around and he was down on one knee lol. Now we have pics to show of our “engagement” but I always know the real, cuter way he did it πŸ™‚ where he actually got choked up and almost teared up and it was more real. πŸ™‚

kayhay88 :  congratulations. I like the sound of your guy. 

Yup his proposal was just us in a cheapy hotel room that I was staying in for work. It was my birthday so the plan was for him to come over after I finished my meetings and we were going out with friends later that night. It just so happened the ring has arrived back from resizing etc that day so he bought it with him and proposed on one knee pretty much as soon as we saw each other. 

Perfect. I’d have hated public proposal as personally I think it’s a private commitment to one another. I’d have felt anything else was contrived. 

Yours sounded super cute together. Plenty of time for hair dos and flashing your ring around in the next couple of weeks.

kayhay88 :  thank you πŸ™‚  He told me he was going to do that pinterest idea of putting the ring in an ornament shaped box and proposing while we put up the Christmas tree but I was one of those girls who kept asking when I’m getting my ring so I kind of ruined that lol. 

Who cares about the messy hair?! I liked the original proposal of his being casual versus the dressed up one because it was so sweet and just REAL. you will get to be dressed up for engagement pics, those are fun!! Just enjoy it and think about what it actually means versus worrying about the messy hair pic!! YOU’RE ENGAGED!!! 😁😁😁
