- Wedding: May 2012
That is the phrase my poor SO has heard me say for over a year whenever I am looking to “update” our relationship status. “Dude, what’s your deal?” It’s kind of become an inside joke between us; whenever I go to ask him a question he rolls his eyes and says “I know, what’s my deal?”
Last night he took me out for a fabulous dinner. All night my stomach was doing flip flops. Dinner came. Is he going to propose now? Then dessert. Now? Then we sat around for a while. Now? Then we walked home in the beautiful weather. Now?? Then we came home. NOW?!?!
I plopped myself down on the couch. He went into the bedroom to change. In my head I just kept thinking we just had a wonderful dinner, WHY didn’t he take advantage of it? *grumble grumble grumble*
He came back in and sat with me on the couch. I cuddled up next to him and started to doze – the food was delicious and had made me very sleepy! After a few minutes I opened my eyes and a ring was dangling literally right in front of my eyes. Then he whispered “So, what’s your deal?”
I was speechless!! I finally managed to squeak out a “really??” and he slid the ring on my finger. Honestly, the whole night was perfect… I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
I want to thank you waiting bees for all of your encouragement and support through this seriously difficult process. I would have lost my mind if it wasn’t for the waiting boards and – if you don’t mind – I still hope to hang out on the waiting boards because I seriously know how tough it is to be waiting it out! THANK YOU!
PS. Engagement Ring pics to come!!! 😀
