My boyfriend proposed!

sixelamysixelamy Posts: 4,157Registered Users Curl Novice
I got engaged today, woohoo! After 4 years, I got my dream ring. He's been lying to me for the past however long saying he can't afford the ring that I want and he's just waiting for the perfect deal. He's had it in the apartment for the past month, but couldn't do anything because my friend was getting married this weekend. So today would have been his brother's 30th birthday, so he said he wanted to do something special in Chicago. He died a few years ago due to Cystic Fibrosis. He made a lot of requests, but I didn't think a thing of it because of this. So it was a very special day all around! I thought he was searching for a person to take our picture in front of the Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park. He found someone and then said wait a minute, reached in his pocket and opened the box! I was totally caught off guard. Everyone knew but me, I was so clueless! Funniest part about it was I had just caught the bouquet at my friend's wedding on Saturday :D

He also included a diamond from one of my grandma's rings that my grandpa left me inside the band. So special!

    Thanks everyone!!! I'm so excited!!!!

    Yes, Starmie that was me. He showed the jeweler the picture of the Tiffany's ring I wanted, and they were able to duplicate it almost exactly! I love my man.

    ETA: We don't have a date yet. Going to find a venue first, then come up with a date based on what they have available. Has to be after Blackhawks playoffs... mumble mumble.. growwwllll... pfffft
