- Wedding: June 2015
i posted about how i somewhat suspected that there might be a proposal this weekend here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/talk-me-down-bees-1 which is also my birthday weekend. well bees – you were right to talk me down as there was no proposal – but he really had me going!
he got all dressed up for dinner, insisted i wear my favourite dress and heels, and was suspiciously texting under the table at dinner! we had an amazing meal, and then when we came home, our vestibule was FILLED with balloons and all my friends were waiting inside – he threw me a surprise party! so many people came, and they decorated our apartment and set off a confetti cannon! it was amazing – i’m thrilled!
we went to my favourite cocktail bar and my girlfriends bought me a bottle of champagne and we danced all night – i felt so special 🙂 i teased my SO about how i thought a proposal might have been brewing and he just smiled and said ‘i’m not telling!’ – but all my friends were asking proposal related questions all night, so i’m hoping it’s afoot.
for my gift he wrote me a sweet card and said that he’d like to take me on a trip – i can either choose where, or i can leave it all to him and he’ll tell me where we’re going at the airport! i think i’ll choose option b, it sounds like a dream 🙂
OH! and – THE RING IS HERE! my SO bought the diamond and then had the ring made to it’s specs, and it arrived on friday! i think he tried to intercept the fed ex truck, but it came to our flat instead, and i signed for it – the self control it took not to rip it open was ridiculous! i put it on the bed and then bee lined for campus since i didn’t trust myself with it! here’s what it looks like –
fingers crossed my next update is the proposal!!
