CV called me during work on Friday and told me that he made dinner plans for us that evening. I asked where we were going, and he said it was a "surprise" but to be ready by 8pm.
Ofcourse, I'm wondering why we are going on a "surprise date" and I can't lie, the thought of a proposal DID cross my mind, but I was 100% sure he hadn't purchased a ring (I couldn't even picture him in a jewelry store), so I just chalked it up to a sweet dinner date with my love.
I got home from work early (oops, apparently I wasn't supposed to be home yet). CV came home soon after sweating like crazy (which I thought was normal), took a shower, and kept running down to the basement to do "laundry". After the running around, we both decided to take a small nap then get up and get ready for our dinner date. After my nap, I showered, put on a pretty blue dress, did my makeup and walked into the dining room to announce that I was ready...and there was standing CV with these beautiful floral arrangement he just brought up from the basement.
I was shocked at how big the bouquet of flowers was (don't let the picture fool you, this bouquet is huge!) and gave CV a huge hug, but still didn't really think anything because, as you know, CV always gets me pretty flowers. He said "there is a card in there somewhere". So I looked and inside the bouquet was a small card with the sweetest words...which included "I want to spend the rest of my life with you and love you forever." I started getting nervous so I said a little inside joke to him. (haha, sorry CV!)
We hugged and kissed.
And as he got down on one knee, I started balling crying.
He asked me to marry him...and I said YES!!! (I think I said it twice).
We hugged and kissed some more.
And then he put the most perfect ring that he picked out all by himself on my finger.
I'm so happy I get to marry my best friend!!!
SOOOOO IN LOOOOVE! :)
