    Cloud 9 3 Surprises *added ring pic in #16*

    Advertisements
    Hey all!

    Haven't been around for about a week or so... Been pretty busy!

    So last Friday, my company had our Christmas party. I'm glad it's all over with.. I was in charge of the catering for 200 people. BUT, it went off without a hitch, so I was thankful for that. Overall, last weekend was soo great!

    DB came over Friday night like he normally does and we were getting ready for the Christmas party. All of a sudden, a phone starts ringing in my room and I didn't recognize the ringtone. I was completely baffled, and to complete it, DB looks just as confused as I. The phone is sitting in one of my drawers in the dresser and I pick it up. It's DB's number calling it...
    So I hit ignore and I held it out to him and was trying to figure out just what on earth was going on! He gets his sh*t eating grin on his face like he does when he's up to something and asks, "Well, do you like it?" I'm still a little confused at this point, and he laughs and says, "That's your new phone, silly! It's an early Merry Christmas!" So now that I'm up to speed, I give him a biiig hug and immediately start playing with it. That sneaky boy added me to his cell plan and got me a new phone. He said my old one was obsolete and always complained about it. lol That was surprise #1.

    Okay, so we go to the Christmas party and it was great.. Had a good time, introduced him to friends and coworkers, ate good food, drank a couple beers, and went home. We got home, took off our nice clothes and got into pajamas and chilled on the couch. We weren't tired yet and I asked him if he wanted to play Black Ops for a bit while I watched him. He said, "Hmm, nah.. I'd rather watch you play." I told him I'd play but he knows I suck so he's probably get bored. I suck so bad at those games, but like to watch. Anyway, he goes to his bag and pulls out a wrapped gift. It appears to be a movie or game by the shape of the box. He says, "With you all alone during the week, I figured you might need something to do.." So I give him a look and unwrap the gift. He got me Fallout: New Vegas!

    Backstory: My ex-husband still had alot of his stuff at my apartment, including his PS3 and a bunch of games, including Fallout:New Vegas. It's my absolute favorite but my ex moved out of state last week to move back in with his parents Anyway, he took all that with him, leaving me with no PS3 and no games.

    So yeah, I was pretty happy about that and he watched me play for a while with a smug little smile on his face. He knew he did good. lol That was surprise #2.

    After a while, we put in a movie and were snuggling on the couch. He kept looking up at me and had this look in his eyes.. His eyes are dark, like mine, but he had such an intense look in his eyes. He got up, gave me a kiss, and went to his bag again. (I now call it his bag of tricks.. lol) He came back over and was telling me how beautiful I looked at the party and how he loved watching me interact with my friends and coworkers. He said I was the center of attention and practically glowing. Then he switched gears and said I was most beautiful when I was just myself. I didn't need make-up, fancy clothes, or jewelry etc. I was smiling and blushing, not knowing what to say! haha He doesn't get like that very often. But it made me feel .

    He said, "I know this isn't the most romantic setting, and it's not perfect, but I can't wait anymore and the time is right..." He pulls a ringbox out of his pocket, drops to one knee in front of me, and oh my god.. my heart starts pounding like a jackhammer! He probably sees the look on my face and smiles. He takes my hand and says, " (My full name), you are the most beautiful girl in the world and so perfect.. I can honestly tell you that I have found my soulmate and I don't want to go one day in this life without you. Will you please marry me and be my wife?" I throw my arms around him and tell him yes yes yes! And this would be surprise #3.

    I am now engaged!


    Added a stock pic from the Zales website in #16 b/c I don't have a cam, just so you can get an idea of what my ring looks like. The pic doesn't do it justice though! It sparkles so much! I love it!

    First of all, congratulations! It sounds like he made the ENTIRE weekend, not just that moment, perfect and special!!!! What a total sweetheart! And the phone and the game... totally thoughtful gifts (and love how he surprised you with the phone LOL)... things he knew you could use or really would enjoy.

    I love reading this kind of stuff! So happy for you!

    Thanks! I love how he did the phone surprise, too! I had no idea lol When I called him earlier that day, he said he was at AT&T, but I figured he was paying his bill or something. Sneaky boy!

    It really was a perfect weekend... My family is very excited, especially my mom. My kids are over the moon and very excited that he will be their stepdad.
