- Wedding: January 2013
After talking about it for two and a half years my guy finally followed through!! I couldn’t be more excited!! I don’t have much of a proposal story, because, well it was pretty uneventful. Neither of us have ever been much of the romantic gestures type, and the proposal followed suit.
Things hadn’t been the greatest lately between my frustration at waiting and missing him because of his crazy work schedule (3 weeks on 4 days off), and with the way he was talking I was pretty certain that it was going to be a while longer before we got engaged. On his last days off (almost a week ago now!) I was super bummed because I had to work during one of his precious days off. When I came home I was even more irritated because he had bought an iPad (even though he had been telling me he didn’t want to get engaged right now because we are saving to buy a house). I admired his new toy for a bit and then headed for the kitchen to make dinner. He asked me to come back to the living room for a minute and when I got there he was down on one knee with THIS:(Sorry it’s so enourmous! This Newbee does not know how to make it smaller :S) Fiance told me that since we have been talking about it for so long he needed to make sure it was a surprise, so he wanted to stay away from any grand gestures that could have tipped his hand. He was actually hoping the iPad would spark an argument which he would immediately stop with his proposal but I didn’t take the bait! So there you have it! My “real life” proposal! I know it’s not much of a story, but it makes me really happy that we are starting this new chapter in life together without him having to pretend to be someone he’s not!
