I proposed to my SO. I got sick and tired of just sitting around waiting for him. So I went out with a girlfriend (best friend actually). And we went to the little shops in our town, shopped and talked, she had my back on the whole thing, so she helped me pick out the watch for him that I had gotten him. Then we made our way up to the mall.
Went to work the next day, forgot that I had said I’d cover a shift for a friend too. So I ended up working a 10 hour day. Didn’t take a lunch, Mr. picked me up from work (he only works a few blocks up from me). I ran in to hide his watch. And I was going to wear it until he saw it and realized what it was. But he and I almost fell asleep on the couch, so we went and laid in the bed and I was SO nervous, let me tell you, I don’t envy a man proposing. And my stomach was in knots and I sat up and told him to sit up. I kept sayng, I love you, I really love you. And I pulled the watch out and said, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, and marry you. And he kind of started to laugh, and I’m already crying and he said, are you asking me? and I said yes. I am. And then he kind of got upset looking and said but I don’t have a ring for you, and I laughed and said silly you don’t need to have a ring for me. We can do that later! He wanted to call his family right away. I told him to wait a little let us enjoy it. His cousin’s 16th birthday is tomorrow. And I don’t want to steal that flair for that. Since both are such a big deal.
I’m hopeing one day this week we can sit down and order my ring. And I told him, he could do his own thing with that. If he still wanted to ask me, that’d be nice. So that’s still in the works. But I’m not waiting on him anymore! I took it all into my own hands. And it was AWESOME!

I do not envy any man. Espesically one that is extreamly planned out. I had been thinking about it for a while. And when I decided, my girlfriend and I were shopping. And she was like, just do it. You are so frustrated with yourself. Just go for it.
And I mean I was every day, beating myself up. Being so independent, why do I want this so much? I don’t need a man. Going back and forth on it. And when I say independent. I mean it. I have lived on my own since my mom passed away when I was 14. I lived in the same house as my father but I took care of myself. Actually lived and paid rent at 17. Moved and bought my own house before I was 21. Own my car. And have a dog I raised from a puppy and take complete care of.
I want it and damn it I’m going to go play with dresses if I want to! And I guess I’ll come out with a husband at the end too.

This is an awesome post! I was wondering if you would post a pic of the watch?

Yeah I’ll can post the one from the website (amazon) but I’ll have to get his camera to get his actual watch.
And it’s the Casio Men’s G9200-1 G-Shock
