I couldn’t resist sharing… the SO approached my father after watching the rugby game (yay Chiefs!!) and told him that he was planning on proposing to me within the next seven months and asked if we could have his blessing. My father said that he had no objections and was happy to give his blessing. He also added that he was really happy that the SO had asked him, reminded him to ask my mother as well (my parents are separated) and said that he wants to take us to dinner to celebrate!!
EDIT: I meant yay the Chiefs, I really did!! Sorry to my fellow NZ bees for that faux pas
I’m just so ridiculously happy and grateful that he spoke to my father because I know how nervous he was beforehand and I just can’t wrap my mind around the fact that it’s all slowly coming together. It’s almost too good to be true. Next step is for him to ask my mother and for me to ask his parents for their blessing hehe.

That’s the best.
I just came from a wedding where the father of the bride said that he really respected the groom because beforehand he asked both of the parents for their blessing and it meant a lot to them.

@MissBettsy: Oh god this is so embarassing – I meant to say Chiefs!! You could tell that I didn’t watch the game but I was happy that the Chiefs (go NZ!) beat the Sharks (sorry South Africa). Gotta cheer on the home team. Gah remind me not to screw up the names of the rowers lol – I’d have a mob after me
@Torrid: It does – and for me, being Filipino and being very close to parents, it meant a lot that he did ask them because I knew that it would mean a lot to my parents to be asked. Yes, I am an adult now and can make my own decisions, but I know I’m still their little girl to them and it’s nice to be involved in such a huge decision/step forward.
And thank you for the support everyone – you Bees are the best!!
