So here is the story of the propasal…
2011: We have been dating for 3 1/2 years and we were taking a trip to New Orleans in September. I did not have my hopes up since i knew he was still paying off the ring and i didnt see any transactions going through our account. So the friday we were leaving, i was coming home from work and he was driving from delivering a boat at the lake ( he sells boats). But little did i know he was actually coming from picking up the ring at the jewlers. Before we left i made a little joke, “is it okay for me to put stuff in your suitcase?” which he started laughing and said go ahead you wont find anything. lol so we left driving six hours to new orleans, got there around one in the morning and went to bed. Woke up Saturday morning, we went site seeing, went to this beautiful catholic church. Walked around in this garden and ate breakfeast at this cute cafe, well i got a text message from my aunt and uncle which they were driving thru and wanted to meet up. So we walked down to this cajun resturant that he had been dying to go. I am cajun and of course being a cajun family we cook cajun food which he LOVES! So we get there and we are waiting for my family to show up. As we are sitting at the bar talking and goofing around, he tells me to look at him since he has to tell me something. As i am turning, he started to pull out this little black box and iimmediately starting crying and shaking. He asked me if i wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and of course i said YES! Right after my aunt, uncle and cousions walked in as i was crying. They thought we broke up but one i raised my hand, my aunt started screaming and my uncle said its about damn time. lol.
I think about that trip everyday and i want to relive that moment. I have never been so happy and so surprised. he was very sneeaky on getting the ring and i love it. I was crying so much and calling everyone i never took the ring from him. He had to stop me and actually put it on. The best thing about the ring, is he custom designed it. I love how it is his personal touch and i am the only girl in the world that has it. It is 14k white gold with a Cushion diamond 1.14 carats with 76 round .78 carats with halo around it. i couldnt get good pictures since i was in the car. lol
the day he asked and this is taken right after my family got there.
and this later that night for dinner the spot he asked me! love it!
