I am officially the "Future Mrs. Higgins"

Yesterday was nothing less than perfect! It was about 76 degree's outside with the sun shining bright - no clouds in the sky. DS was at school for the day so it was just be and my (now) FH (!!!) at home. I have been giving him crap about us getting married for 6 months now...let me give you our history...


Future Mr. & Mrs. Higgins

We have been dating for 3 1/2 glorious years and living together for 1 year and 6 months, at the beginning of this year I was asking about us getting married as anyone lady wants to know. He made the promise to me that I would have my ring THIS YEAR - my mind instantly started dreaming about wedding dresses, flower bouquets and of course, the bachelorette party! Ever since he promised me my ring I have been asking weekly when I was going to get it. Yesterday was no different!

I was messing with him saying that after lunch we would get dressed, go buy my ring, and then go buy his new MacBook that he has wanted for a few weeks now and we would BOTH be happy campers. I heard him walking upstairs and I'm thinking "Oh lord, whats he going to tell me now?" and I see a ring box in his hand. He hands it to, tells me if I would just be PATIENT and let things happen I would have my ring soon enough - I opened up the box - and it was a GORGEOUS diamond ring. He looked at me and asked if I would marry him, I of course said "YES!" and with tears rolling down my face, I put it on. Beautiful fit and I couldnt have asked for a more perfect ring or future husband.

I gave him a huge hug, and the most perfect piece of the day was feeling his heart beat 90-to-nothing. Shows that even if he knew I would say Yes, he was still nervous/excited to ask me. Perfect ending to a Perfect day!

Aww how sweet!
My story is simimlar to yours. We have been "together" for almost 8 years now - living together the past 2 years, as well as we have a 4 year old son! So - i've been STRONGLY hinting the wedding thing! LOL!
Now it's just setting a date and getting things in order! I'm looking at April 22, 2011!
I want to "make" most of our things too - and I will be sharing this on my blog as well! Hopefully we can get some great ideas from each other!
The difference may be - I want a SMALL SMALL wedding! I want less than 50 people there - which is SO hard to pick and choose! LOL!
Congrats - your ring is beautiful!!!
