So for all you waiting bees, like myself, I have a funny story to tell. I will *TRY* to make it short and sweet.
Me and the man were newly in a new city, a new apartment, and heavily discussing marriage a lot. We were *THIS* close to having a small wedding in May for our 2 year anniversary with just our families present. We decided together that really deep down we want to go the traditional big ceremony/reception route. Okay cool. When we decided to wait he promised he’d propose in a few months.
So now we are coming up on our 2 year anniversay in May right. In my mind, I just know he will propose. We were supposed to get married on that day anywayyyyyy and now we weren’t so I figured FOR SURE he would propose. I started to get all these texts from my three best friends about the anniv. gift he got me. One of whom is my neighbor and even CALLED me to say “Oh MrTX came by my job today to show me your engagement present and I’m just so happy for you, you’re gonna love it!”
~~~What would ANY girl think she was talking about? I’m like…OMG…he really got me a ring and he’s off showing all my girlfriends because they are all telling me how much they love it.
Okay..fast forward..I started to snoop..LMAO. I know, I know what you’re thinking. AWFUL. Deep down I DID want it to be a surprise but I was so anxious and NONE of my friends would tell me so I needed to know if it was a ring. FOUND A FREAKIN RECEIPT FROM KAY JEWELERS IN HIS SOCK DRAWER!! It had a price on it, which convinced me it was a ring. It wasn’t no silly pendant or anything like that, that was for sure. I asked my best friend to tell me the truth because I found the receipt. She was like “I promise you its not a ring, but its awesome youll love it” I was convinced she was just pulling my leg to throw me off.
Fast forward to the next day, the big day! I worked that day and I agonized alllllllll day about what to wear to make sure I would look phenominal for that first “WE’RE ENGAGED” happy cheesin photo! lol.
He won’t tell me where we are going. Dude is dressed UP with a tie AND a jacket. I’m like, Oh lord, it’s really coming! We get to this old vineyard type restaurant that doubles as a reception site. I’m like hyperventilating inside. The person who greets us is like ‘OH HI MR TEXAS, GOOD TO SEE YOU’…..I’m like WTF??! So they lead us downstairs to this wine cellar with all these tables. One table had roses, a card and candles on it. I’m like whaaat 😀 😀
So, I’m all surprised, it was sooo romantic. It was the most romantic thing he has ever done and you could just TELL he put sooo much thought into it. Right, so we go the whole dinner tasting wines, eating delicious food, having dessert. I’m like wtf is he waiting FOORRRRRRRRR lol. So finally the waiter asks us if we would like some after dinner coffee. Neither of us drink coffee so I’m like no thank you. The waiter tells me, well I have this delicious mocha-thingy-mahbob that doesn’t taste like coffee at all, I’m going to bring one down for you to try. I’m like okay cool.
The waiter comes down with one of those fancy dinner plates that have the silver cover on top of it, ya know what I mean?? I’m like OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. So he walks right over to me and says “MissTX, this is for you especially from your man MrTX” He takes the lid off the platter…..
It’s an oblong rectangle box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO
I open it, and inside is a GORGEOUS diamond tennis type bracelet. Full of sparkly baguettes and it was just breathtaking. YALL………I was actually shocked it was not an e-ring. Not mad in anyway but hell yea I was semi disappointed because it would’ve been a story for the ages! LOL. It was hilarious.
SO…i know that was long but I had to set it up so you’d get the whole feel for what I went through. Hahaha now I have a gorgeous diamond bracelet, and still waiting on that special RING 😉 Please share if you have similar stories girls!
