Number 25 off the list :D Mif_ here had my username changed as I thought it might give me luck if I changed it....well it worked!!!!

Hoping to change it back as it is a bit confusing anyway. Sooooo

Darling Mr Mif_ proposed on Friday night!! YAY!!!!!! :appl: :D

It was a massive shock and I am NEVER shocked, I am so perceptive and if he has wanted to do something like a picnic etc I would have realised I think but this was just wow, I was blown away.

Ok, so, we went out to dinner up near my beach house where we were staying so everything was normal, nothing unusual but I was tired and had had a wine or two so when we got home I went straight into our room to drop my stuff and get changed but Mr Mif_ called out for me to come into the other room & I call back "why? I'm tired" but he insists twice.

After much resistance I go in to the lounge room & the lights are dimmed and there he is one knee in front of the fire with his hand behind his back and he asks me to be his forever & to marry him. I burst into tears because I think he's playing a joke, I really believed it was a prank but he assured at least twice that it was NOT a joke. He then tells me all the reasons why he loves me asks again me again to marry him, I obviously say yes while still hysterically crying and shaking.

Congrats Mif!


Your ring is GIGANTIC - it looks even bigger on your finger than I remember imagining it in your old RT threads! And, of course, I think it is positively delicious :love: :appl:

Re: Mif_ here I'm engaged! (changed username for luck it wor

Thanks so much everyone.

Stats:

4.18 center stone + 0.73 on the band = 5ct.
Triple Ex, E, Medium Fluro (which I purposely wanted, obsessed with fluorescence, love the fact it will glow in the bowling alley hehe).
Ring size: 5 1/4 probably need to size down to a 5.


Will try and take some more pics today while at work :)

Wow, gorgeous!!!!! :love: You might need to wear sunglasses outside with that one! :sun:

(Just a note, don't size down now. Your ring will fit more snugly once you have a wedding band. My rule of thumb is to wait until you have the wedding band for awhile to resize, and never resize in the winter. Resize in the summer when your fingers are at their largest.)

Oh my gosh!!! So exciting!!! Just a week ago weren't you like, "*sigh* dust to you, but it's not happening for me anytime soon..."?? Hahaha!!! He waited until you least expected it! That's actually kind of fun--not that he made you wait, but that you had no clue it was coming.

So happy for you!!! Your ring is amazing! I want to be next!! :Up_to_something: exclamations galore!!!

Question: how many manis have you had since you got that thing?!?! Looks like your nails have been a different color each day :cheeky:

Re: Mif_ here I'm engaged! (changed username for luck it wor

They have been hahah! I had no mani the night he proposed (and no make up, tear stained and all) and then the next day I painted them with a colour I had left at my holiday house and then when we got back I had a proper mani hehe!

Thanks for the advice re: resizing I completely agree also because I think I may have two bands as thin as they are it will make it a lot tighter. I also think I need to get use to wearing it.
