EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

No, my keyboard is fixed. That's just an interpretation of how my brain would sound right now if you opened it up and allowed it to talk unfiltered...

Here... I'll show you why....

That's right! After five years, I finally caught him! Mwahahahaha!
:D

Actually, he caught me totally off guard. He proposed on Friday in Charleston. We had just had a nice dinner and were walking back to the hotel. We stopped in a pretty little park and sat down across from a lit fountain. He got down on one knee, and I started crying like an idiot.

"Does that mean yes?" LOL.

Yeah, it does.

We came back to town early to break it to our families, and when I announced my roommate's maid-of-honor-ship (and after she was done screaming and hugging me), we went straight to Barnes N Nobles and pulled all the books off the shelves in the wedding section.

*sigh* My brain hurts already.

Note to Self: October 3, 2009. Mark your calendars!

Hi MJ,

Yea!

Now a bit of advice - make sure you inform him, directly and in small words, that his job until the wedding is to constrain himself, in any planning situation, to saying one of the following:

"Whatever you want is fine with me."

"I have no idea; you pick."

"You have a better head for color schemes than I do, so I'll go with your choice."

"Bachelor party? What's that?"

"Yes dear."

"Yes dear!"

"Yes, dear."

Of course, if he gets that right, you'll have to cut him some serious slack after the nuptials.

MJ said...

To All - Thanks so much for all your congratulations! I will make sure to pass them on to the cop. He did do a very good job of picking out the ring - I didn't have to help or anything! I am very excited for him to be my hubby, but very nervous about all I have to do this next year.

The Grit - He tends to do that already, so he's got a head start... "whatever you want hon..." ;)

VE said...

Squeee! Congratulations!

Rick said...

Congratulations - oh no! I forgot. You're not suppose to congratulate the bride. It sounds like she's won something. You're suppose to tell her "Best Wishes." So... best wishes to you. When's the date?

kweenmama said...

Congratulations! How exciting! And the ring is really pretty. Enjoy the planning stage, it can be alot of fun.

MJ said...

A continued thanks to all of you for writing such sweet things :)

It's amazing that a begging and pleading for readers to comment won't work, but tell people you're engaged and MAN they come from everywhere to congratulate you! :D

Thanks!
