The man finally did it!!!!!

  1. Well my boyfriend finally did it!! He finally asked me to marry him.:kiss On Christmas Eve!!!! It was nothing totally romantic. He did get down on one knee and ask though. He did it in front of his kids (which was really important to him). He had been telling me that he wasn't going to be able to afford it right now because we just took an unplanned trip to Florida so I was really shocked.
    The reason he did it right now is because my aunt was a real big supporter of our relationship and she wanted to go to my wedding. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer 8 months ago. He wanted me to be able to tell her that we were getting married. She died a few hours before he got a chance to ask me. :angel2: I know she knows and is happy. The whole thing is sorta bitter sweet.

    The real cool thing is the ring. We had talked about what I wanted. I wanted something original and without the big single stone. I didn't want my gloves to get caught on it at work. So he goes out and picks it out himself. It is five diamonds (.73 carat total) all in a single line. Platinum setting. It is beautiful, I love it. So the cool thing is it looks almost exactly like my grandmothers 25th aniversary ring that my mom wears now. He has never seen that ring!!!!!

    Anyway wanted to share my news.

    You could have an Allnurses wedding affair...Wendy can start it out with strippers for the bachelor party....Heather can make your cake....and I can play piano (my partner plays the harp) and sing. Someone here has to be an ordained minister (otherwise Brian could take the online course)...
