- Wedding: October 2012
cross me off the list, ladies! earlier this year there were times i never thought this moment would come, but he finally proposed tonight! it was a bit of a nightmare getting the ring and everything, and even though he wanted to come up with the perfect plan to ask me, he just couldn’t wait any longer. we had a company dinner tonight on a dinner boat so even though there were a lot of work people there i wasn’t sure if he would sneak me off to a corner and ask me because it was nice up on deck looking at the washington monuments in the dark, but earlier while we were eating he had already said he thought it would be “a perfect time if this wasn’t work related.” so even though i knew he had the ring i knew at that moment it wouldn’t be tonight. but, he kept talking about it at dinner because i know when he gets so excited about things he just can’t hold it in any longer.
we got back to our apartment and i thought, ‘well, maybe tomorrow night, just be patient…’ but as i was laying on the couch he came over to me two times to kiss me and just had the cutest smile on his face and he finally just said, “you know, i tried to think of a million great ways to propose, but i really wanted you to have it for this weekend. so, i figured there wouldn’t be a better time then now…” and looks at me with a HUGE grin on his face as one begins to grow on mine. i started to squeal and he (amusingly) took the ring box from his shorts waist band and said, “will you be my wife?” it was so cute! i don’t care that it wasn’t some spectacular proposal, i am just so happy he finally asked and he’s finally ready. and so that i won’t bore you any longer, here is the eye candy! 🙂
