First off *squeal* *happy dance* *squeal*
He called it “Operation Blue Diamond”
I had an inkling that he would do it this weekend (we took a mini vaca to the place where we took our first vaca) since we were celebrating our anniversary early. I thought that I was trying too hard to connect the dots and I was setting myself up for disappointment. I told myself that if he was going to do it, it would be when we first got to the cabin because he had plenty of time to go and set something up before we left. We got to the cabin and…nothing happened. I did really well with not showing him that I was disappointed and we took a sweet little walk and went back for dinner.
After a couple beers it started getting dark and we sat down to enjoy our burgers. A car pulled into the cabin next to ours, and I ignored it since people had been in and out of that cabin all day. All of a sudden I see the people get out of the car and start heading towards us. I thought that it was the neighbors coming to borrow some firewood, so I wasn’t expecting anything and just said hi like normal and (to my regret) took a huge bite of my burger. I turned around and it hit me…IT WAS MY BEST FRIENDS HOLDING SIGNS THAT SAID “SAY” AND “YES.” I immediately turned around (choking on my burger) and said “are you [email protected]*&ing serious right now?” I was soooo shocked. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to be with him forever! I screamed YES and hugged everything in sight. Unfortunately, since my friends were a bit late it was dark so I couldn’t see my ring! I ran inside and saw the most beautiful ring ever!
Our best friends stayed with us for the whole weekend, and it was crazy drunken fun all weekend! He completely shocked me and did such a good job with everything. I am getting him to hang the “say” and “yes” signs in our bedroom so I can remember it every day!
Sorry the picture is horrible, I haven’t had time to concentrate on taking some nice ones haha. It is a white gold antique edwardian style ring with a blue diamond center stone and a white diamond halo and white diamond detail on the sides. I will either add new pictures or a link to new pictures when I have them.
By the way, my FIANCE just said “aw, are you writing for the last time on your weddingbee board” and I said “heck no, these are my girls!” Haha
