I thought I ought to write the story somewhere before we both forgot everything. :) Not that we will.. but you know, just in case. And I thought some of you might be curious.
Quinn has been following the advice and example of the Phillips family and pretending to propose to me almost every day since we picked out the ring (at Sierra West... Dave Bowen sold it to us.. he's a stud, and Lisa's boyfriend... ring shopping was a lot more fun than I thought it would be thanks to good old Big Wave), which mildly annoys me, but it's also funny and he hadn't completely fooled me yet... until yesterday.
We were at my house and I turned around to do something and when I turned back around, there was Quinn, down on one knee.... again. But this time, he had a box! So I started thinking, "Oh my gosh! Is this for real?!" The goofy grin on his face was the only thing that made me think maybe it wasn't. So, he opened the box and it's EMPTY. Ooooo that was IT. I was so mad! I started hitting him and screaming, "Don't you EVER do that again!" Mostly, my pride was hurt because he actually fooled me that time. I wasn't really mad... I just couldn't believe he did that. I figured Big Wave had just given him the box to be funny, but that he didn't actually have the ring yet. But then in the midst of my screaming and throwing a fit, he pulled another box out of his pocket and opened it. And there it was.... the most gorgeous ring in the whole world!! It was ten times prettier than I remember it and I was a little bit in shock... so I didn't know what to say. I just backed off him so he could get up and he got down on one knee... for the last time... and asked me to marry him. :) I said yes and that I was sorry for being so mad and then we smooched and now we're engaged!!
He definitely surprised me. That's for sure. Plus, I didn't think he had a chance to pay for the ring, let alone pick it up, because I had the car last night and then again today. But Big Wave had picked him up at my house while I was out and they did the whole thing all secret-like so I was totally not expecting it.
|I know I look CRAZY, but I'm just SO excited!! :)|
