So this happened last week and I'm still not over it. I'm engaged ! After 7 years of dating he finally got the courage to pop the question, either that or I just annoyed him to the point of no return. Either way we're both happy and can't stop from calling each other fiancé, it's annoyingly adorable.
How did he do it you ask? Well see Jason is very how do we say hard headed and complicated in other words he's a man. I don't mean to men-bash but you will know why I say this in just a second. For the last year we've been talking about marriage and you know the future and what not. This whole time I thought we were on the same page. A week before he proposed I just asked him is there something holding you back because we seem so happy and both seem to want this but we were at a standstill. So I ask just asked is it the money or are you not ready. Guess what he said! "I'm not ready." Yup, he went there and I felt like a deflated balloon animal. My feelings and dream of a wedding in the nearby future went down the drain. For a week I gave him the attitude from hell. Oh don't sit there and act like you wouldn't have done that too! I mean come on the man I'm love with and have been talking about a specific future for the last year all of a sudden has cold feet. Crazy things were running through my head like its been seven years, how in seven years can he still have doubts?!
Anyways, turns out he had been planning this for months but didn't know what else to say to keep me from asking. Word of advice gentlemen DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT tell your long time girlfriend who you have clearly been talking about marriage with all of sudden say your not ready. Because not a lot of us have to the strength to stick around until you make up your mind, just sayin'.
On Monday 12/9/2013 we spent the day hanging out eating, watching tv, playing with the dogs a perfect day in my book. So, were just sitting down talking and he says are you still mad at me. And I say I'm not mad because honestly I was disappointed but I knew in my heart he would come around, well at least that's what I kept telling myself to keep sane. He says I have something to confess. As soon as I heard that started having heart palpitations like oh sh#$! He gets down on one very shaky knee, I kid you not I thought he was going to fall over at any moment. And he says "I lied I do want to marry you". I literally stared at the ring for a good two minutes before realizing like holy sh#$! he just proposed. After five minutes of us going back and forth not believing this was really happening we hug and kiss and he says "You see were not on the same page I'm chapters ahead of you". Awww queue the happy ugly tears.
I always knew this guy would propose like this. Make me question my sanity and why I'm with him to then give me the sweetest surprise ever so typical of him. That's my life lately and I'm so excited to be moving soon, starting a new chapter and bringing Wedding Wednesday's to the blog. Yes, finally I can blog about weddings without feeling all weird and stuff. Oh and I unblocked my pinterest wedding board, now everyone can see all I've been fantasizing for the past year that is now slowly going to come true : )
