we had bn goin out about 16 mths. when he came home from work i was sitting on the bedroom floor rooting under bed for a shoe, when he kneed down beside me and i asked why are you shaking(not great thing to say i now know).
he said would you make me the happiest man in the world, then got the ring he had spent all day picking out and put it on my finger.
then after i said yes he told me that before he asked me he had asked my 2 girls aged 11&7 if he could marry their mammy.
lucky for me they said yes.
we set the date soon after that .so its just under 6 mths now till we become family
I love these stories i am such a softie have had tears running onto the key board now.
Mine happened Valentines Weekend 2009.
We were done in Killarney, just had our dinner and he announced we should go for a walk i was like ah forget it, its pitch dark and freezing cold, he persuaded me and am i glad he did,he had load of tea lights on a pathway lighting up walk way down to the gazebo, my fav flowers in a vase, champers on ice and him on his knee with my amazing diamond all picked, still get emotional telling story. So mad about him
2 days after we came back from egypt (which he treated me to as a surpise after my leaving cert, he said i needed a holiday) we went for a walk in the park where we first got to know one another as friends, he took his jacket off and put it around my shoulders (as he usually always does when i'm cold), i said what did you do that for i'm not cold but soon enough forgot about it as i was yapping away to him. one subject led to another and then led to marriage. we'd spoken about it a good few times before but never thought he would do it so soon (we were just over a year and a half together then). i said i could never imagine myself with anyone but you. he said " well how about marrying me then?" i start laughing because i thought he was joking and he said "are you gonna give me an answer?". then he put his hand into the pocket of the jacket he had put on me and took out the box with the ring in it. i said yes of course i will....me being the hopeless romantic that i am started crying and wouldnt stop for ages. he had bought the ring in the airport in egypt just before we were about to fly home but i didnt see him buying it as i was in a different shop. i love how he did it because it was the little things that are special to us
Loving the stories wollies!!!!
Mine was my 30th Bday weekend- we had a party here (he organised) and he brought me to New York next day, booked an amazing hotel and for my actual bday he had a champagne picnic all arranged in Central Park. That morning he got dressed into a shirt for some strange reason - saying all his T-shirts were dirty (I know y'all might think.....hint hint dozy BUT it was my birthday and I'm all about being the bday attention seeker so paid him no attention
