Last night I proposed to my FI! :)
I know a few of you girls have been following my antics on pw for awhile so I figured I'd let you all know it went. :)
A little backstory first. My FI proposed to me in the most fantastic way, on stage in front of hundreds of people. 12/15/12 It's even on YouTube! It was the best ever! But the months to follow we're extremely difficult and were riddled with fights, disappointments galore, issues with wedding planning etc. it literally tore us apart and I contemplated ending it completely.
But we continue to talk and are working things out. Fast forward a few months ago. He started wearing a ring as a symbol of his commitment as soon as we returned from the trip he proposed at. He had lost the ring during move and was pretty upset that he didn't have that symbol anymore. So I made a plan to buy him an engagement ring too! But I didn't know his size.
I got him sized late and I had originally wanted to propose at the ball of the convention he had originally planned to do it at. Which we go to every year and was this past weekend. But the rings did not arrive on time. So now I was left to devise something else.
Ultimately I didn't want a public affair since we were already engaged and thought people would find it strange. So in the end I did it sitting in our future love nest, together, on the couch and I explained that his engagement was amazing and I loved it, but that our engagement has not been fun... That I hoped that we could start over with it and vow to try harder and not fight as much. I pulled out the ring, said his full name and asked him to marry me! As a promise towards a better life together. He cried and was absolutely stunned. It was wonderful.
His new ring is a tungeston carbide ring with carbon fiber green inlay (his favorite color). I also ordered a ceramic white ring with a blue carbon fiber inlay as a "matching" engagement ring. (I wear it on my right hand so they can be close when we hold hands! <3 and well I was curious to see a ceramic ring in person.) I engraved the rings with a short and sweet message "My one and only" :) he's so ecstatic and happy. I'm so happy to have something to put the bad to rest and be able to enjoy our engagement again and to start planning our wedding all over again!!!
