Yes, after many years, I've finally joined the "Bride to Be" club!!!! Whoop whoop, yeah baby, work it, work it!!
So here's the nitty on the gritty:
My boyfriend, Willie, and I were out and about when all of a sudden it started raining. I made a dash for the car. As I was about to shut the car door, Willie shouted, "Wait"! I turned to look at him and saw that he was in the process of getting down on one knee. He pulled a Ring Pop out of his jacket pocket and began his "speech".
(He proposed with a Ring Pop like this):
I have to be honest. My first reaction was: "Hey, where's the real ring? Is this the really-real proposal?" The reason I felt this way was because we've been together since high school, and he's "proposed" before--but we were too young back then. But it turned out that this was the REAL proposal and the real ring was actually being sized.
By the way: He actually did end up proposing all over again once he placed the official ring on my finger...this time he did it in front of my mom! The poor guy had to propose like 3 times! LOL!
So, I've been in a "happy place" for a couple weeks now. I'll definitely be keeping you up to date on this new and exciting milestone in my life.
