He finally did it!!!

  1. my b/f of 4 years finally proposed to me!!! i don't have anybody to tell tonight so i thought i'd tell y'all!!!
    he was soooo sweet and scared! we were getting ready to leave to go see a movie (w/ my 13 yr old son), we had our coats on and everything. then he grabs me and shoved me towards the couch and makes me sit, then he gets on one knee. he starts to cry, pulls out a ring box and opens it, (he can barely talk) and he says that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and would i marry him. (i was so shocked that i'm not sure what else he said!) and of course i said yes several times, then he puts the ring on me - it's absolutely gorgeous!!!!! :kiss i can't believe we're finally engaged! later when we left in his car he kept getting choked up when we'd talk about being engaged. he's sooooo sweet!!! for the rest of the evening we both kept looking at my ring! :chuckle
    i'm soooo lucky - god has blessed me soooo much - it's going to be a wonderful year!!!! :hatparty:
    happy new year to you all!!!!!

    WOOOOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! What a sweetie!! He just sounds so in love, and so overwhelmed (I bet he's been rehearsing this over and over, hoping and praying that what you'll say is what he wants to hear!!)! Of course, you sound just thrilled! I'm so glad for both of you!! What did your 13yo say/do???

    Wow... it's contagious..... My hubby's cousin, who lives next door with his g/f of 10 years!! Yes, 10, proposed to her on Christmas Eve... He always said that he would NEVER get married, but I guess something snapped & he bought her one of the most gorgeous rings I have ever seen...I was so happy for her & am now happy for you, too....

    My son has been wanting us to get married. He will say things like, "When we get married to Paul....." He was pretty excited!
