So as I said in my first post, I'm engaged! LN asked me on March 29, 2011. I came home from curling (I won my game!) and he had a new picture in one of our picture frames. It was of a Mario coin box, I just laughed at it and went upstairs. When I came back down, he said "what does the coin box say?". So I took the back off the frame and it said "would you like a glass of wine?". I believe I called him a nerd, but that yes, I would like a glass of wine. What proceeded from there was a trail of notes that led me to different spots around the house until the last spot contained a box.
I opened the box and said "oh wow, that's really nice!"
Now in my defense: when I opened the box, he didn't say anything. He made the ring, so it didn't look like an engagement ring and it wasn't in a ring box. So I didn't realize that he was proposing.
Anyway he then said "do you wanna get hitched?"
My reaction was.... "Really? SURE!"
It's funny because I had gone over the scenario in my head and I always thought that I would cry. But I didn't. Oh well, the proposal was certainly "us".
I can't wear the ring he made me because it's too fragile (and too big). So we went out and bought one.
Here is the ring LN made me, it has two heart shaped amethysts in it:
This is the ring we bought:
This is my ring on my finger!
It a 9mm cushion cut Amethyst, with 5 diamonds on each side, in white gold. It's so sparkly! I freakin' LOVE it!
*note: Amethyst is not my birthstone, I just really like it.
