- Wedding: September 2013
It happend and it’s kind of a funny story… Here’s our story, I work out of province on a rotation schedule being away for 4 weeks and returning home for 2 weeks. Last thursday my mom was meeting me at the airport to pick me up, I was surprised to see FI there with my mom and my sister. He had to take the day off and my initail reaction was just excitement to see him from being away for 4 weeks.
My mom has a tendancy to pretend she a photographer (she is mostly just annoying with a camera) so FI asked her to hide to take pictures of him proposing, she didn’t she stood so close and was a constant distraction with the picture taking. Anyway FI came up to me we hugged and mid hug he said soooo fast in nearly one syllable “iloveyouwillyoumarryme?” I was shocked – 1st of all I had just got off the plane, I was exhausted from working 4 weeks straight(no weekends 11 hour days) my mom was click click clicking away, and then she put the camera in my face because she had changed some setting and couldnt figgure it out and wanted me to fix it (come on are you kidding me!) I’m sorry I’m just a bit upset at how this all went down and haven’t had time to get over it. So anyway I looked at FI and it was just not a real proposal, he had the ring box between us not open, he wasn’t on one knee and my mom didn’t not get what was going on.
Poor FI was so nervous and shy, and it just wasn’t going the way he thought it would. I of course I said yes, and he relaxed (there was no way I would ever say no we’ve been planning our wedding for a few months now) but we talked about it and he wants a do over. I told him it wasn’t necessary, but if he wants to it would be nice. I feel so bad for him because he kept saying how embarrased he was and that he wished he hadn’t involved my mom.
So we are engaged and I’m wearing the ring, I’m excited to start telling people but think the do over needs to come soon so FI doesn’t need to be embarassed by the original proposal. Poor guy, I love him for being so nervous.
