He proposed....and it was exactly how I would have wanted it to be, it was so special. Here's how it went down....
We went to my aunt and uncles house for some Christmas Eve fun, left there and then went to his aunts house for a few more drinks and more good food. I was bugging him all night about going home and opening our gifts and he kept saying no it's not Christmas yet. So by the time we left his aunts house it was a little after 11pm so I said you know when we get home it will almost be Christmas day. So he finally agreed but said I had to wait for 12am to roll around.
Finally it came around and he said I had to stay in the room he had to get my gift ready. He finally called me out and said it's over by the Christmas tree. So I start looking and I'm like no it's not, only the kids gifts are here and then he pointed to an ornament hanging on the tree and there was this beautiful ring haning on the ornament. I started crying, he pulled the ornament off took the ring off and then got down on one knee, slipped the ring on my finger and asked me to marry him. I couldn't get any words out I just grabbed his neck hugged and kissed him and then said "Is this for real?" LOL! Why I said that I don't know, he pulled out the Zales bag and was like yeah I'm for real. And he said "So is that a yes" and I said "Oh crap I forgot to answer you, yes of course it's a yes"
I was not expecting this, I really was more excited for him to get his present. After all he just got me a new camrea not too long ago and I didn't think he would do this. All I wanted was to see him open his Blue Ray DVD play with the home theater system. Then to find out he got me this beautiful ring I am just floored and I feel so grateful to have a man that loves me the way he does, it's wonderful.
Oh and I know you want to see photos, after all this post is nothing with out pictures!
We took this picture at my Aunt's Christmas Eve party.
