- Wedding: August 2012
After 4.5 years of being together my boyfriend finally proposed!!
After waking up at 3pm (I’m a nurse and I work night shift), my boyfriend informed me to get ready to go to the park. I got up, put on some shorts and a t-shirt and then was informed by my boyfriend that I looked “tore up” and should go take a shower since my hair looked crazy from sleeping with my hair wet from showering before I went to bed. Shocked but realizing he had a point after looking at myself in the mirror I went a head and showered and put on a little spring dress after he told me he actually had a surprise dinner reservation. My sister was visiting for spring break and came home to tell me that my dress wasn’t flattering and I probably should change. (Uhm was this like pick on Ro day or something? ) She went into my closet and picked out a more flattering dress. Usually my radar would be going off like crazy but my sister knew me so well. She asked what my boyfriend was planning and I sort of shrugged and said I wasn’t sure, not wanting to get my hopes up. But then my sister went on to tell me this story about how he opened up to her last night about how bad he felt for not being able to afford my ring right now even though he was ready to marry me tomorrow. She said he told her he wanted to take me out and show me how much he loved me even though he couldn’t afford a ring right now so that was why he was planning this dinner date for me. She even went as far as making me pinky promise not to tell him what she told me. PINKY PROMISE people, the mack daddy of secret keepers. So that completely squashed any hopes I had.
We left and he told me he had another surprise for me, he scored some Sleeping Beauty tickets for the symphony and he had to pick them up from his old coworker. So we went to his old work building and went up to the 60th observatory level (also where we went for our first date) that overlooked all of Houston, he said he was going to meet her up there. When we got off the elevator I noticed an asian “tourist” lady taking pictures with her camera of potted flowers. Which I noticed and thought, “wow that’s weird, why would she go INSIDE a building to take pictures of plants” but having friends who were trying to break into photography I know that a lot of times people try to practice with different lighting so I just left it at that. Then my boyfriend turned to me and said, “Dude that lady just took a picture of us.” Uhhh thats weird! But we just laughed it off. Then we continued to look out the massive glass windows overlooking the city and my bf started bringing up how we met, and fumbling around with his phone, at which point I asked him why he was acting so weird.
Then he said, “Remember when we were talking last week of how many first kisses we had? And you said you kissed 6 guys and I kissed 19 girls.”
Me: “Yes, we’ve already established you’re a kissing slut.”
Him:”Well I want you to be my last first kiss ever.”
(Tourist lady comes right in front of us and starts taking pictures, his brother comes out of nowhere with a video camera)
I turn back to him and he’s on one knee.
Me: “What are you doing?!?!”
Him:”I want you to be my wife, will you marry me?” (pulls out ring)
Screaming ensues with a blur of, “of course” “OMG” “is this real?!?!” haha.
And that’s my story!! I can’t wait to start, well who am I kidding, finish planning our wedding and spending the rest of my life with him!!
To all my waiting bees out there, when you stop expecting it to happen is when it actually happens!! haha
Without further ado….My Ring =)
