After all of the waiting, and all of the venting I did on this board, my wait is finally over!
He proposed on Friday night and took me completely by surprise. We were watching my Friday night guilty pleasure show (Ghost Whisperer…I know, I know, kind of embarrassing). When the opening credits began to roll, he turned off the TV. I said, “Hey, what are you doing? I was watching that!”
Then he shoved the coffee table away (it was right in front of me) and got down on one knee and I immediately started crying. When he proposed, I think I said, “Are you serious?”, followed by “Yes, of course!” It wasn’t a “flashy” proposal but it was just our style.
I had no idea he had bought the ring yet (though I knew he had started looking). He had it custom designed and did an amaaazing job – it is my dream ring. He ended up getting a great deal because he ordered an H ring (I’m not up on all of the terms, but I think that denotes the colour) and they found him an E of the same size for the same price. I’ve never been that into jewellery, but I love my ring. I can’t stop staring at it.
We’re aiming for a Fall 2010 wedding and will hopefully be meeting with our desired reception hall over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you all for your support during my waiting period! You ladies are the best 🙂
