- Wedding: October 2011
I’m engaged! This weekend the Boy and I went home to watch our beloved LSU Tigers play in Baton Rouge (if anyone saw the game, it was ugly, and we are quite lucky, I know). It’s been a tradition of ours since we started dating 5 years ago to go and see the LSU mascot, Mike the Tiger.
Well the past 2 games we went down for, we’ve missed seeing Mike. So when we were getting on the road to head home yesterday after visiting my parents, he mentioned that we should stop and see Mike on the way out since it was on our way and it was such a nice day.
We parked the car, then walked over. Had our normal discussion about how I think our dog, Petunia, looks like Mike, etc. Then before you know it he was asking me. It was sweet and of course I cried 🙂
He asked me with his Mom’s ring. Its a small pearshaped diamond on a gold band. Not exactly my ‘dream’ ring, but it means so much to me that he would want me to have it. I love it. However, his mom must have the smallest hands in the world, b/c the ring only fit on my pinkey finger. So then I was a little upset that I wouldn’t get to wear it. He told me that he wanted to ask me with his mom’s ring for sentimental reasons and that my ring that he got for me should be coming in in a few weeks.
So today I’m wearing his mom’s ring on a necklace. I think we might go to a jeweler some time this week to see if they can have it stretched to fit me so I can actually wear it on my hand 🙂
I’m so happy!
