What a week its been!!!
One week ago today my LONG time boyfriend asked me to marry him and share the rest of his life. I freaked out so hard, I made him ask me a second time so I could hear him say it!
It was the sweetest proposal, and exactly how I would have wanted it, because it was so perfectly US!
I got back from FL Monday night, after a long trip (think…planes, trains and automobiles) Woke up Tuesday as per usual and started my day. I greeted my guy, gave him my valentines day card and then went to work…
It was a perfectly normal day, which is typical for us, we’re not big on the hallmark holidays and don’t usually do much, nor have we exchanged gifts in YEARS! Which is why I was TOTALLY caught off guard when I walked into the house after running errands in the evening, to find a gift bag on the coffee table and a shit eating grin on his face!
Here is the exact conversation that transpired!
Me: Hey! What’s this?
A: I don’t know, close your eyes and reach into the bag…
Me: *Still not reaching in*, What is it though?
A: Just reach in!
Me: *Reaches into bag, pulls out box*…. WHATS THIS?
A: Open It! *Grinning in the cutest way ever*
Me: *Opens box* OMG are you serious????? *Continues to freak the Fuck out!*
A: Will you Marry Me?
Me: *Goes over and kisses him and I THINK I said Yes… and sits down cheesin so hard…*
Me: Say it again!
Me: You have to ask me again, I need to hear it again…
A: Will you Marry Me? *puts ring on finger*
Kisses, Hugs then I proceeded to gallop around the house screaming “We’re GETTING MARRIED”
My Fiancé (you see that???) then went and made dinner and I proceeded to call the entire world!
It was the most perfect proposal EVER! I couldn’t have thought up a better or more romantic way and I was completely caught off guard because NEVER in a million years would I expect him to do it on Valentine’s Day
I don’t think I’ve ever been so ridiculously, goofily happy in my entire life. I felt like I was in a euphoric state where I just couldn’t stop smiling and felt utterly relaxed.
We then popped champagne, a bottle I’ve been waiting to drink since my 25th Birthday and saving for this occasion….
Naturally, I had ordered a sign off Etsy back in August for the perfect Photo Op of the kitties making their own announcement…. I know, I am insane.
I CAN’T believe it still! After nearly 7 years, we are FINALLY Getting Married!!!!
I can’t wait to marry this man and spend the rest of my life with him <3
