What I've Been Reading: August 2012

The question of the month is about our engagement ring and proposal story. My husband and I moved in together after dating for only 4 months and it was pretty obvious from the beginning that we were inseparable. It wasn't until about 6 years later that my husband finally popped the question on February 7, 2010.
I had spent the weekend in Philly visiting my best friend and then drove home late Sunday afternoon. I knew something was strange when I spoke to him on the phone Saturday night, I could just tell. When I told my friend what I thought she immediately blurted out -"He's going to propose! I know it!" I didn't think anything of it really, I just thought she was crazy. As it turns out he went ring shopping while I was away for the weekend and my friend had no idea, she just has a 6th sense.
As soon as I walked in the door from the long car ride home, I started getting ready to go to his parent's Superbowl party. I was sitting at my vanity doing my makeup, he was sitting on the bed behind me and we were catching up on things when he said something along the lines of I can't wait any longer, I have to ask you... (you know the rest). I glanced up at him in the mirror with a look of total shock and saw the ring, turned around, proceeded to cry, and of course said "yes!" There's no significance whatsoever with it being Superbowl Sunday except for the fact that he just couldn't hold on to the ring for a day longer. I called my family and friends and we announced it to his family at the party. I couldn't have been more perfectly planned or um not planned.
