Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm engaged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm still on Cloud 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've had a smile on my face since it hapenned!!!!. OMG!!!. He proposed Friday afternoon!!!. Sorry I couldn't come tell you the news sooner! I was dying to but it has been such a crazy weekend!!!!. I feel like I'm dreaming and I just keep on doing happy dances!!!!!!!!!



I thought that maybe he was going to propose on our sky trip next week, but he thought I would be expecting it so he wanted to catch me by surprise!

Friday I went over to his house to work form there in the afternoon and stay thee the rest of the weekend. Then he called me like at 3pm and asked me if I was busy...I said no really, but that wasn't unsual since he usually gets out of work early on Fridays and always calls me to see how I'm doing. Anyway...he came over, we hugged, said hello, he hugged my (our!) doggie..the usual


Then he asked me if I liked the new kitchen nook table. We picked it out together from Poterry Barn, I said yes, I loved it!...so he asks me again if I really like it, I say of course! plus the chairs are so comfortable!!!....so I go ahead and sit in one of the chairs and he says. Well, I'm glad you like it because this will be your table!. I said, yes I know...and then he starts kneeling down
and says something like: This will be our table, because this will be your house, because I want you to be with me forever...(at this point I have my hands in my face and can't believe what is hapenning!!!!!)...and he says "Will you marry me?".....awwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!


All I manage to say (in between smiles and shock, and red face and teary eyes) is: Are you joking???? This wouldn't be funny!!!...hahaha...then I hug him...he asks "ok, so what is that? a yes??"...I say yes! I satrt jumping, we're hugging, kissing, etc....OMG!!! I'm just SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He then tells me he just got the ring that morning and was just going to wait for the perfect moment that day...and the moment came like 5 minutes after he walked into the house! haha. He had called my dad the day before to ask for his blessing


I'm just crazy happy and in love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He had reservations for my favorite restaurant and had a bottle of very nice champagne in the fridge. We started celebrating right away, then went to dinner and then had some friends over. They had no idea so we got to surprise them...It was great!!!!!!!!!

The ring is absolutely AMAZING, everything I wanted!!!. It's a 1.5 round brilliant in a platinum 4-prong band!! It's beautiful!! I can't stop looking at it!!! He got it at Blue Nile and it sparkles like crazy!!!!!!!!. He has been doing research on it for a while and said I would drive him crazy sometimes with questions...hehe
. I told him "I wasn't THAT bad"....and he looks over at our dog and says "no she wasn't...was she buddy? she's been great!"...hehe. Ok, I was a little bad


The next morning as we got up, he gave me a hug and said "good morning, my wife to be!!!"...



I'm just so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like I'm still dreaming, it was perfect, we're just so perfect for each other and can't wait for our life together!!!!!

Thank you PS and my LIWs!!! for keeping me sane (ok, I wasn't completely sane
)

Hugs!!!

M~

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is just such a happy time that I can''t even keep quiet...I have seriously been doing happy dances all weekend long!! my *FIANCE* keeps laughing at me! haha. We''re just so happy


The ring is actually too big, I''m a 4.5, and it''s a 5.5....so I bought a ring guard for now! I have to send it back to Bluenile but it''s going to take like 2-3 weeks!!!!
. I now, I waited this long, what''s 2-3 weeks! But I don''t want to take it off! I''m ging to wait a couple of weeks before I send it!!!

Now if I could only find the camera cable I could download the pictures!!!!!!!! I have NO idea where it is!!!!
Just when you need it the most!!! Where could it be!!!??

Congratulations Mandarine!!! Looks like being keeper of the list really did help things along!

as a side note, if your camera has a little storage disk (probably near the battery) on it you can take that out and stick it in the computer, and download the pics.

Thank you!!! You're all so sweet! I wish I could hug all of you...better yet, I wish I could invite all of you over here and then we could have a proper toast!!!...haha

I tried putting the memory stick in the laptop but it won't fit! I think my laptop only takes the Sony memory sticks and I have a canon. I must have left the cable at the office, so I'll have to wait until then to download the pics!.


The ring is just so sparkly!! I feel like I should take it off when I'm driving because I keep staring at it and I could easily get distracted!!!! It's just perfect!!! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!


M~


ETA: BF and I decided to not talk about wedding plans yet until a little after our trip, we want to just celebrate and enjoy THIS time....I thought that was a great idea, no planning....BUT I had to get my wedding p*rn! I bought my first bridal magazine! it's huge!!!!!....I was like a kid at a candy store choosing which one I wanted, while BF just looked at me smiling

Mandarine,
I thought I''d check the threads one more time before bed and am soooooo glad I did!
Congratulations!

I am really happy for you!!! You have a great proposal story and I''m so glad he decided not to wait for the trip. I love the "are you joking?" part b/c I was exactly the same way. When you''ve been waiting, you have to be SURE it''s the real thing!
The wedding mags are fun to look at, I have to admit. I can''t say that I waited until I was engaged to look. The planning will be fun too and you have plenty of time.
Yay, I''m so excited for you!!! Can''t wait to see the pics! Now your trip will be even that much more special.

Good things really DO come to those who wait. Maybe if you hold your hand just right, you can blind your evil neighbors.

MANDARRRRIIIIINNEEE!!! YAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!! Oh, my word. I am so thrilled for you both. Shay is joining you in a happy dance as she types. (over look the typos please)

I love the proposal. I also love that he wants to just enjoy this special time, savor it. This special moment will not come again (your dreams have culminated for a while). The next special one will be the wedding. Take the time to really appreciate each other for who you are and what you bring to each other. Again, congrats. I am beyond happy for you both.
