LOL. At that point we had been ring shopping and had already talked about some of the details, but I didn't consider it official until I actually got my ring. He proposed Friday night Biggrin

How did he propose?

Slight background to this proposal:

We are both really big into RPGs (Role Playing Games) and Dungeons & Dragons type stuff. We play Magic the Gathering (card game) all the time together. He probably has 20,000 Magic cards and has given me several decks so I can play too. And he bought me an RPG for my computer that we play online together b/c we both love it and it's nice to be online w/ him even when we can't be physically together due to kids, jobs, etc. He was also very big into LARPing (Live Action Role Playing - think Dungeons & Dragons but real life. You make a character and they have live in person events for a whole weekend every month) when we met, and he actually owned a LARP for awhile but had to sell it because his real-life job plus kids plus me Smile didn't leave him any time to run it. But he still has a lot of costuming and props from this, including chain mail.

Yes, we are both dorks Blum 3

Anyways, so Friday he was supposed to be in Atlanta working overnight (he frequently works nights and odd hours), so I wasn't expecting to see him. I worked Friday evening and then had to work early Saturday morning, so my kids were spending the night at Grandma's b/c it is easier for her watching them, plus I think she spoils them and the kids like it better over there anyways ;). I got home after putting the kids to bed at Grandma's, and there was a light on in my hall, but I figured I just left it on that morning when I left. But nothing else out of the ordinary. I went to go put my stuff down and he was on one knee dressed like a knight in full chain mail and everything holding my ring and asked me to marry him! Scared the crap out of me b/c I totally wasn't expecting him to be there! He even parked his car around the back side of my house so I didn't know he was there. It was a wonderful surprise, and totally perfect way to do it knowing the both of us.

Of course I said "Yes!" :love3:

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you!

You know, I saw the subject line my first thought was "Someone's posting a pregnancy test pic," but then when I saw who posted it, I knew I'd be looking at a big shiny ring instead Smile

Thanks everyone!! I will definitely try to keep you up-to-date w/ wedding details. My plan is to very soon find a venue and see what dates they have available so that I can have an acutal date. After that, I figure that everything else can wait a little. It's so funny b/c his sister is dying to help plan and has already sent me like 50 texts and facebook messages. Good thing I really like her Biggrin
