- Wedding: September 2012
I’m new here! I got engaged with my fiance on December 22nd, 2011! It was our first day of holidays, and he was determined to take me to see a musical in Toronto. We looked at Mary Poppins but it was WAY too expensive, I’m rather frugal…so then he said we’d go see Cirque de Solie…I was all for that until I went on their website and saw that they were coming to our home town a week after! (Toronto is about a 40min drive west for us) so I persuaded him we could get better seats when it’s in our home town and probably for less. He desperately wanted to do something, he said to celebrate our first day of Christmas holidays…so we ended up seeing Memphis, a wonderful musical in Toronto. It was so great, I loved every minute of it. He then decided to take me to the Baton Rouge for dinner…we ordered steak and wine and I was worried it was too expensive an evening. He reassured me everything was fine and we had a lovely evening.
We got home about 2am, and he pulled me down onto the couch beside him, it was very romantic with the Christmas tree all lit up. He told me how much he loves me and I kinda patted him on the shoulder and told him I love him too…and he told me he wants to spend the rest of his life with me…and I patted him on the shoulder and told him he better…We had found a ring a year and a half before….A YEAR AND A HALF everyone…so we’d had this conversation plenty of times and I didn’t think anything of it…until he pulled the ring out and said…I’m serious, I have a ring and everying! I was so shocked, he asked me to marry him and of course I said yes 🙂 he was shaking, I didn’t even notice! Anyhow, I couldn’t be happier, he is my best friend 🙂
Congratulations to everyone as well!
