We told FI’s family a few days later when we went down to visit. We sat and chatted for a bit to see if anyone would notice my ring, but they didn’t. So we told them and they just smiled at us. Very underwhelming.

I told my mother over the phone because she lived on the other side of the state.

Fiance did not ask my parents (after 8 years I think he was OK… lol).  My dad’s a jokester so I called and said, “I don’t have a boyfriend anymore!!” He said “whaaat??”  So I replied, “I have a fiance now!”  Then we both just talked to our parents and shared the news!

I called mom and had her put me on speakerphone so I could tell both her and my dad at once. I probably waited about twenty minutes after he proposed.

My Fiance asked my dad for permission a fwe minutes before he proposed! So he already knew… I just went downstairs and told him. 🙂 And when my mom came home from the grocery store I nonchalantly put my hand on the counter. She thought I was wearing her new ring she got from her grandmother! 🙂
