All of your finger crossing worked!!! Hahahaha 😀
I seriously can’t believe that I’m saying this, but SO proposed last night! As some of you already know, we went out to dinner last night for our 4-year anniversary at the restaurant we went to on our first date. We haven’t been to this restaurant but once since that night because it’s just so expensive, so I was super excited that we were going! We got a huge boat of sushi, and a tempura veggie appetizer (the tempura veggies have been a running joke between us these past few years because something very humorous happened with one of them on our first date, lol). Dinner wrapped up and nothing happened, so I pretty much had my mind made up “tonight’s not the night”.
Once the bill was paid for (that was interesting too, the waiter came to our table and told us a caller had paid for our dinner!) SO asked if I’d like to go to the arcade/putt-putt place across town so we could goof off and have a few drinks (putt-putt place with a full bar, can’t get any better!). I thought that would be really fun and sweet to do because that’s where we went after dinner on our first date.
Anyway, long story short, after a drink and a round of putt-putt, my new FIANCE got down on his knee, held my hand and asked me if I would do him the honor of marrying him. I honestly wasn’t sure that what was happening was actually happening, and I’m pretty sure I looked like an idiot standing there with a ‘deer in headlights’ look on my face! I was like “Wha.. wha.. what are you doing!?!” Then he pulled the ring out of his pocket and at that point it got real-real, hahahahaha!
I LOVE this ring, and he did a great job designing it! The center diamond came from a ring that was passed down to his mother from his grandmother, and that just makes it so much more special!
All those times these past few weeks that he was supposedly with his mom? Well he WAS with her, at the jewelry store, designing my ring, lol!
And as it turns out, it was my Dad that called and paid for our dinner. Fiance had told him a few days ago on the phone what day he was going to ask me, and my Dad did some detective work and found out where we had our reservations. So sweet and sneaky!!
Thank you again to everyone for being sooooooo supportive over these past few months and helping me keep my sanity!! I <3 all of you!! **hugs!!**
We’re going to see my parents this weekend, I’m so excited, I can’t wait to show them!!!
