- Wedding: April 2011
Well my turn came fellow bees! I am officially engaged!
It all happened last night (17th). My FIANCE told me we were going for dinner and wouldn’t tell me where. We arrived in Northbridge (big entertainment/ restaurant area in Perth) and we went to my favouritest restaurant (Mexican, YAY!). We had an awesome dinner and then went on to another town to have coffee and dessert and to play pool. After that we went for a drive to the beach (Scarborough beach for any West Aussie bees out there) and got out for a walk. It wasn’t particularly cold but my FIANCE put his jacket on. We stopped at a spot which is a lookout over the whole ocean and were just talking about random stuff. We started talking about our future. My FIANCE asked me where I see myself in 5 years and I said with him, as Mrs C–. At this point I noticed his eyes were doing strange things so I pointed it out and started saying “Woah your eyes are being trippy” and kept looking at them. While doing this he asked me if I still wanted to marry him one day. I said of course (at this point he was trying to get the ring out of his jacket pocket- hence the need for the jacket- I would have seen the box in his jeans- but it was stuck and he couldn’t get it out.)
While I was still going on about his eyes he asked me again if I still wanted to marry him one day and I very sarcastically said “Oh my god no way” (note- we are very sarcastic in our humour and I was annoyed that he was asking me again- I was more interested in his eyes!). Little did I realise he was holding the ring box open down near his waist. He then looked down with a grin on his face and said “Oh so you don’t want this then” and held up the the ring! I gave him a huge hug and then he asked me the question again- This time though, there was no sarcasm and I said a big huge YES!
Here’s a pic of my ring that I took this morning- it’s the camera from my phone so it’s not that great. I’ll take some more pics over the weekend. The ring is a 2.01 (yes, I feel the need to add the .01 there because it sounds cooler) Cushion Cut Morganite (a pink Emerald/Aquamarine) with 2 tiny diamonds on either side. I LOVE my ring soooooo much. It is so sparkly out in the sun.(My pinky finger looks a bit odd because I was moving it out of the way so the ring looked super sparkly! Also, my fingers don’t look hairy in real life- they are blonde hairs but for some reason they showed up black in the pic- how embarrassing!!)
*Sorry for the overload of the word FIANCE! It looks so cool to actually type it 😀
