Even though I was fairly certain this moment was coming soon as we had talked and talked about marriage and the future, it was still such an overwhelming feeling to have him ask me to marry him. I'm not usually into traditional gender roles so much but having him get down on one knee...aww gosh.
I called my parents right away (1:30 a.m. their time!) and they were very excited! Now friends of theirs are already chomping at the bit to hear wedding plans. Sigh. Can't we just enjoy this time for a while? Freeze this period so the actual hard part of wedding planning doesn't have to happen right-this-minute?
We have tentatively talked about getting hitched in July of 2010. Part of me wanted to just do it in Nevada where all you needed was $50 and photo i.d. but alas Boyfriend nixed that plan. I guess I have to think of a new name for him on the blog, yikes!
Stay tuned for more details of our trip!
Congratulations! Enjoy the time and don't worry about anything. In the end it will be the best day of your life, even if things go wrong.
Congratulations! Now getting rid of that apartment becomes a definite!
Wedding planning can be fun and stressful so definately sit back and enjoy this time.
congrats! excellent news all around, and i'm excited to hear more about how your engagement and, eventually, wedding plans and financial goals all work together (that's my current situation, so it'll be fun to see someone else navigating the same!) now, go break that lease :)
p.s. i go with the contributors on jezebel.com who coined the term "husband elect" for a fiance (such a weird word!) this year - i've been using it all the time, and then he can just be HE on the blog (which seems appropriate on its own)
Woo Hoo! You have to spill the details of your trip. Very happy for you! And agreed, need to beable to freeze the moment to enjoy. :)
Congratulations! Getting married is great, being married is great. Best of luck to you.
Congratulation!!! just to keep it on the finance theme...r u guys gonna combine income or u plan to be debt free by then? does he have debt???

@Idub, I love the term "husband elect," thanks!
@undercover, will definitely not be debt free by 2010 unfortunately but we are going to share finances when I move in with him. Will most likely be a his, hers and ours set up.

Congratulations! We're pretty much in the same boat and engagement so far is awesome. Our timeline is a little bit more acclerated than yours (Fall 09) but enjoy the planning!

Congrats!!! The proposal sounds very sweet and romantic!
Congratulations, sounds like you had a good time. July 2010 will come faster than you know, trust me on this one. Wedding planning takes a year though, maybe add a countdown to the big day?
How wonderful :)
