The Surprise I Knew Was Coming!
I knew from the moment I laid eyes on my fiancé that he was the one for me!
I was never the person who believed in love at first sight or anything like that until I met my fiancé, and I know that sounds cheesy and it's probably something you hear in the movies all the time but I definitely felt something when I met him. We had such a strong connection, and he instantly made me smile and I knew that I had to do everything in my power to get him! I'm not sure if it was lust that brought us together (because he is the hottest man I have ever met) or if it was love, but the amount of joy and happiness he brought into my life was beyond me so I knew we would be able to make each other happy!
We had been dating for almost a year before he popped the question.
We had talked about getting married several times, and we always discussed what our future would be like, but I never actually thought it would happen so soon! I remember the very day he took me shopping, and then he just casually asked me if I wanted to go look at engagement rings!!! I thought to myself "This guy is crazy!! But why not, it's not like we're going to buy anything yet" so we went!
After hours of looking at several different engagement rings, I completely forgot about all the shopping we had originally planned to do! But after I finally picked out a ring that I absolutely fell in love with, my fiancé says "okay, if that's what you want". I didn't really think anything was going to happen because I was just oblivious to what was going on at the time but I just remember saying I like this one and he said okay!!!
A few weeks later, my fiancé called me and said to get ready for a nice dinner out and to pack a bag because we would be staying at a hotel suite for that weekend. At the time I didn't really think anything of it because we had done things like this before so to me it was just another weekend out having fun!
Well anyway, he picks me up and takes me to this gorgeous restaurant in Houston with the best Cesar salad and steak I have ever had! I thought it was a little too fancy just for a "nice dinner" out but I didn't catch on until later.
Before we ordered dinner he asked me if I wanted to get some champagne, and the entire time we had been together he never asked me if I wanted some champagne so I thought that was weird. So as soon as he asked me that I kind of knew something was happening, especially since he was starting to act a little weird and different! Well right when he asked me if I wanted to order some champaign I said "no, why would we do that?" and I continued on to say..... "You're acting kind of weird, are you okay?" and he followed with "yeah I'm fine". So I said "if your going to ask me to marry you, just do it!! You don't have to get nervous about it!!" And he looked at me like I was crazy! Lol
Well nothing happened........ We ordered dinner, we ate the delicious dinner, we had a few drinks (no champaign) lol and we ate dessert. He didn't ask me to marry him so I kind of felt bad about saying what I did at dinner but then I also felt dumb because I thought he was going to ask me!
We leave dinner and now we're headed to the hotel, which is a beautiful hote by the way. And since I am like a 5 year old child sometimes and someone has to remind me to go to the bathroom before I leave anywhere, I have to go to the bathroom so bad!! We valet park and I grab my purse and I'm rushing him to hurry and get out of the car! I keep telling him "babe, hurry up I have to go to the bathroom!! I have to go!!" And like any man he just takes his time lol. At this point we get into the elevator and we get to our floor and he forgets the key to open the door to our room!!!!!
Well I am dying and I can't hold t anymore so I have to go use the bathroom in the lobby otherwise I'll lose it!!!!
By the time I come back and I open the door to our room, there are rose pedals all over the floor!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!! In my mind I am dying!!! I start getting all teary eyed and I kept thinking to myself "This isn't happening! This isn't happening!!"
As I follow the rose pedals that are in a little trail that led me to him, who is standing next to the bed, there are even more rose pedals on the bed and a beautiful view of the city from the window!
Now I am definitly losing it and I keep asking him if this is really happening!! He says a few words to me about how happy I make him and how much he loves me and wants to be with me for the rest of his life. I wish I could remember everything he said but I was just in complete shock!!
He knelt down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!!!! An now I am officially balling my eyes out and I said "YES!! YES!! YESS!!!". I gave him a kiss and grabbed him by the arms and gave him a hug so tight I didn't want to let go!!
When he knelt down and opened up my ring box, there was a light on the inside of my box which is amazing!!!! And the reflection of the light from the diamond went across the wall he was standing near and it looked as if the stars were in our room that night!!
It was the most romantic moment of my life and I was mad at myself for a while for almost ruining it for him lol but he forgave me!
After talking about everything afterwards he told me that he planned everything out to the tee!! He said he even picked off the pedals from the roses because he wanted it to be special, instead of just buying rose pedals from a box! I thought it was the cutest thing ever!
The best part about everything is that my fiancé hand picked out my center stone diamond and didn't even tell me!!! The whole time I thought I was getting the ring that I picked out at the store! But he picked out my stone and had it custom made with the setting I picked out. So it's s little bit of me and a little bit of him in my ring and I love that!!!
I never in a million years thought I would get a ring like this!! And I never thought I would meet such a wonderful man. He is the most loving and caring guy I know and he brings so much happiness to my life. I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for him.
He means to the world to me and I love him more than anything. I am truly blessed and so thankful for this man. God sent me an amazing gift, he sent me my angel to look after me and love me unconditionally!!!
