Ok, I got on at about 5am and posted in the waiting board how I am now engaged [!!!], and now that I’ve had a little rest, I can tell the story. I have to say I was pretty sure he was going to propose very soon. I even told my mom earlier in the evening that I thought he was going to get the ring. So, that being said, here’s the story.
Today was my daughter’s birthday party, and, being the procrastinator I am, I was up very late baking the cake/making goodie bags/etc. I stayed up far too late doing all these things, and I was still running around at 3AM. He finally told me to sit down by him because I was running myself ragged, and I finally agreed I could sit for a couple minutes. I sat by him on the couch and he asked me how much I loved him. I jokingly held up my hands about a foot and said I guessed that much. We laughed, then I spread my arms out wide. He asked if I was sure [duh] and then started kissing me. While he was kissing me, he rotated on the couch so he was more in front of me, then got down on one knee.
When he stopped kissing me, he said something along the lines of “You know I love you, right?”. It started to hit me he was on his knee and I said “Are you proposing?!” His reply: maybe. He then pulls out a box and it’s all a blur after that. I know I went into freak-out-girly-mode [so not like me] complete with covering my mouth, then fanning my eyes with my hands [sigh, it’s true]. I don’t know exactly what he said, but I know he said he loved me, asked if I would marry him and I said “Yes! Of course!” while hugging him. I know I asked “really?” about twenty times, but it was just so unreal. It still is, really. He said he just couldn’t wait to propose [he had picked up the ring earlier that day], and he wanted me to be able to show it off at her party the next day.
So, there you have it. I can’t believe it, but we’re engaged!!
Now for the pictures [sorry if they’re huge]:
