After he put my gift on the counter, I immediately asked him, "what is this for?" He said, "Happy Anniversary!" We hadn't talked gifts so I was a little taken back...when I opened it I found red velvet cupcakes (my man knows me well) that looked like this...
After I opened them, I said "awww babe they're all messed up." What I didn't see was a box in a ziploc bag in the box. I instantly look at him, knowing the aggravator he is and said, "you're really gonna play jokes?" I open it and it's my wine corks I'm collecting for my wine wreath. He goes, "who would I be if I didn't joke around with you a little bit?"
As I put the lid back on the corks I look over and I see him getting on one knee. I instantly burst into tears, which in turn makes him start crying. I honestly have no clue what he was saying because my brain was going 90 miles a minute. All I remember of his speech is, "I promise to always work and provide for you." That's it, none of the other sweet stuff. I really don't even remember if he asked "Will You Marry Me?" but I do recall at some point saying YES! so I would assume he did ask. I'll be honest here, I was ugly crying during the proposal. I couldn't help it. I'm an overly emotional person, I couldn't have just stood there with a smile while giggling. I cry. I can't help.
After all the hugs and kisses I immediately looked at him and said, "WE'RE GETTING MARRIED!"
And there you have it, our engagement story. It's nothing extravagant and that's exactly how I wanted it to be. I didn't want to be out in public in front of a lot of people, that's not who I am. We're happiest when it's just the two of us. I'm also thrilled that he incorporated cupcakes into our engagement since I'm his "cupcake." He did an excellent job.
And now for my bling...
He also did an excellent job picking out my ring. I only had two requests, that is was three stone and had diamonds down the side. He hit the nail on the head!
No date has been set as of yet, but we're thinking late September early October 2013. A nice, long engagement. We have tons of stuff to do, like finish our house.
Bring on the house renovations and wedding planning!
