How He Proposed

Since it's the two year anniversary of when Hubs proposed I figured it was about time I posted this.

It was Monday January 19, 2009, we were planning to go over to my parents house to have lunch with them since it was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day so we all day the day off work.

On the way there I think he did something to annoy me so I was pretty quiet.  (Read: ignoring him.)

Guess which song happened to come on the radio while we were on our way... Single Ladies.  How ironic.  Hubs told me he even turned it up, I guess so I would get a hint.  But since I was busy ignoring him I didn't even notice.

Well we got to my parents house and went to the door, which was unlocked.  And right when I walked in Hubs called my name so I turned around and saw this...

Crappy quality but it's a great memory.
I was completely surprised.  I just started crying.  Hubs swears that he never heard me say yes, but I did.  It was just hard to hear me since I was so choked up.

I had no idea he was planning on proposing to me anytime soon.  I had just had a mini-breakdown in December telling him that I wanted him to propose to me on Christmas and I knew he wasn't going to.

(He chose my parents front door step to propose to me because that's the first place we met in person.  We'd been friend online for awhile and he finally asked me out on a date.  When he came to pick me up for that date that was the first time we'd ever met.  You can find the story about how we meet here.)

My gorgeous engagement ring that Hubs picked out all on his own.

Afterward, we still went to lunch with my parents.  There I proceeded to gawk at my ring and text everyone that I could think of that I was now engaged!
