- Wedding: June 2014
He FINALLY proposed!!!! I’ve known the my SO (now fiance!) has had my ering for almost two months because we picked it out together, but he definitely suprised me with the proposal! I was working on Sunday until 6pm–the only Sunday of the year that my place of employment is open. When I was getting ready to leave work, my SO called me to see what I was doing. I usually call him on my way home from work everyday, he never calls me, so I thought it was kind of odd, but didn’t think anything of it.
When I got home, there were rose petals outside on our deck. When I opened the door to the house, our dogs were going nuts and there were rose petals on the floor in our kitchen. I said “hello??” when I walked in, but got no answer. There were two flower stems sitting on the counter with no petals on them (which SO later mentioned that he forgot to throw away), and my initial thought was that my son pulled all the petals off and left a mess! But then I noticed a trail of petals leading thru the kitchen to the living room. I saw that there were rose petals on the glass table, and after I looked again, I saw that they spelled out “will”. At the point I knew!
Continuing to follow the trail of rose petals, I stopped at one of our wooden barstools that was placed in the living room with a “u” on it. The trail led to our bedroom where on our bed petals spelled out “marry me” and there sat the ring box and a bouquet of flowers. At this point I’m crying, and saying “hello??” and I hear a little giggle. My SO and my son were sitting at the top of the stairs that are off of our bedroom.
When I looked up the stairs, my son yelled “surprise!” So I’m still crying and they both walk down, my son says “don’t cry mommy!” My SO hugged me, asked me to marry him and I of course said yes!!! Still crying, my son says, “Mommy! Now it’s time for your ring! It’s my job to put it on you! Which finger do you want it on?” I showed him and he took both the ERing and the wedding band out of the box. My SO explained to him that I only get the one with the diamond on top right now, so he put the wed band back. After he put it on my finger he said “wow! it fits just right!”
I was so surprised and not expecting it at all, especially that day! And it was so special, especially because my SO involved my son. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more personal proposal 🙂
Now for the ring porn!!!!!
