- Wedding: January 2015
I am engaged!!!!!! OMG! Let me just cut to the chase and tell the story… it’s pretty hilarious.
Well long story short, I went to have lunch with a friend of mine at 2pm Yesterday. My now FIANCE (wow lol) wanted me to meet him back at his apartment at 6pm. I kept asking him “well, what am I going to do waiting 4 hours?! Lunch is only like 2 max!” Haha. I was being a butt about it. I’m not a huge stickler on time so I just waltzed in at 6:50pm, because it didn’t sound important lol. When he opened the door to his apartment, he had a single rose for me. He told me I only had 10 minutes to get dressed! So I quickly found something to wear, threw on some makeup, and when I was done, he told me to sit down.
My first thought was “I KNOW this boy didn’t make me get all ready just to eat at home!!” LOL. He then started saying how we’ve been together for 2.5 years, how I have so many quirks, and how he has so much fun with me and that he wants to have that forever. (He was so nervous and got choked up!). Then he asked me to marry him!
I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Now I always thought I would be a total cry baby. I didn’t! He got choked up. As for me? Nope! As a matter of fact, he tried a few times to put the ring on my finger because I kept pulling my finger away in utter disbelief, like this just couldnt be actually happening. Lol! After he finally got it on , I started jumping up and down all over the dang apartment screaming like a banshee as if I won the Mega Millions Lottery… Seriously. Poor guy thought I was losing it HAHA. I would jump all over the apartment, screaming my head off, stop, look at the ring, look at him, and scream all over again! Like 5 times. I was a lunatic… I kinda scared him 🙂
We ended up celebrating at the fancy Capital Grille where we were given complimentary champagne and dessert!!!! We made a promise during dinner to always work to have a strong and healthy marriage!!!! So touching and sweet! That night, I DID NOT sleep. Every couple hours I would go to the bathroom, turn on the light and just stare at that gorgeous ring!!!!
I don’t know much of the specs, but I do know the center stone is a round 1 carat diamond. It it surrounded by a total weight of 0.5 carats of smaller diamonds. Ideal cut. HAS MAGNIFICENT BRILLIANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The bling hits from far away!!!!!!
And what is so awesome about him is that he remembered that I said I DID NOT want a diamond, if it would be possibly coming from Africa. I’m Nigerian and I did not want to risk wearing something that my fellow African brothers/sisters were possibly exploited for (and quite frankly, I don’t trust the Kimberly Process). He was so awesome that he got me TRULY conflict free Canadian diamonds!!!!!!
I’m happy that this proposal was SO US! I’m a happy girl, and I get to buy him some hearing aids for Christmas HAHA!
