The Proposal

Well...we actually decided to get married about a week ago while watching movies. We were sitting on the couch having a glass of wine and watching a movie. Somehow we got to talking about how we both thought over the top huge weddings were a waste of money and were joking around that "if" we ever got married it would be on a beach in Mexico with no fuss no muss. Then I asked where the honeymoon would be, and said "Well when are we getting married?" I told him next fall worked for me and we started laughing then he said he was serious and that he realized a couple months ago (before I even knew he had feelings for me!) that he wanted to marry me. So we started laughing and I said yes.

A few days later we were out to dinner and as we were leaving we noticed a jewelry store next to us and decided to go in just for fun. Since he manages a jewelry store we weren't planning on getting a ring anywhere else. While we were in the store trying on rings and being silly we also decided to have a little fun with the salesman and told him that Clint was a stockboy at Bestboy which caused our snooty little salesman to sigh because he probably figured we were just messing with him. Then I tried a mounting that made us both stop was perfect. We both looked at each other and smiled. He asked me to come outside with him and asked if I was sure because now it was for sure if we got a ring. I said yes.

He took the mounting with him and ordered in a few stones at our jewelry store to have mounted. They were taking too long to come in so he ended up buying a stone that was already in the store that we liked. Monday night, I knew he would be coming over to propose. He asked if I were prefer a surprise romantic proposal....but I wanted my ring and told him that I had already said yes when he asked me last week and to me that was a romantic proposal.

So I lit come candles and turned on Oasis, one of our favorite bands, and he came up and we laid down and talked about how crazy this was, but how sure we were and then he knelt down beside my bed and asked me to marry him. I said yes.

Then we celebrated by playing Wii bowling and having a few beers. It was perfect.
