I haven’t been very active on the bee, but I am SO HAPPY to report that my Darling surprised me on Valentines Day with a proposal!
Back story: We didn’t have any V-Day plans set and I was secretly going to see if he even remembered it was a holiday (albeit a ‘Hallmark’ one). I got home from work first and was making dessert when he arrived with roses and a cake from DQ. Yum! He asked if I wanted to go to dinner, but I wasn’t feeling very good and would rather stay in. He agreed that it would be nicer to chill at home. So we ate ice cream cake for dinner, sitting on the couch while watching TV. I got up to put something away in the kitchen and heard him say, “Darling, where are you?” I was being silly and replied, “I’m right here. Can’t you see my butt!??!!” while I leaned forward and stuck my booty towards the door. Had to be there. He turned off the TV and I could see him out the corner of my eye, getting down on one knee. The he said, “Can we haz a married?” which made me laugh and laugh because we don’t always speak like lolcats unless we’re talking to or about our dog. He revised the question to “Will you marry me?” with a ring. It was sweet. I couldn’t stop kissing him and said yes twice, to make sure I answered the question. Then we got busy.
I don’t have any ring pictures yet. He picked it out at a local jeweler without any input from me and, while it wasn’t what I had in mind, I still love it.
