My boyfriend asked me to marry him today. :happy: We open presents together every Christmas morning and this year, he saved the best present for last. :)
I posted a bit about having problems with him in the past, but lately he has been getting better, and apparently he has been talking to his mom (yes, he's a momma's boy, lol) about our future together, she said some things along the lines of that he told her he realizes what he has and what I mean to him, and they had a long talk about how it's time for him to get his butt in gear (sh!t or get off the pot is how she phrased it, lol) and start ensuring our future. He has been saving over the past year and a half for our house, and has quite a bit of money for that so next year we have it in place that, barring any unforseen malfunction in the plans, we should get a house, get married and start a family. :)
About my being a Vegan, his mom told me he is very proud of me, and today I had some things to do before we went over by his mom's, so he went separate. When he got there, she said he went right into the kitchen and started reading ingredients on some of the food and figuring out what I could eat, and asked that she leave cheese, butter, etc off any food until after I had taken my share, as well as he wrapped my own yam in foil with EB butter and separated it so I knew it was mine. Can you believe that??? I am so proud of him I could just die. :heart:
So, needless to say, I am quite the happy camper these days. :)
Here's a pic of the ring...it is a one carat, round solitaire in white gold, and I love it. :)

Congrats sgain! Tiny bit of advice; enjoy being engaged for a few weeks before you start planning, no matter how big or small your wedding is going to be. It's fun to just bask in the glow for awhile before you have to start answering questions :D

Thanks. :) We aren't planning on it for at least a year, and it will most likely be a small wedding, maybe even in a courthouse and then have a small party afterwards. (I was married before, and you know how most boys are, they don't like planing weddings anyway, so I could care less about the actual wedding event. I had my turn, lol) But this will be after we get a house, and we're not quite sure when that will be yet. Depends on how much money we have saved by what time next year. I'm pretty sure it will be some time in 2009 though.

sgain - that makes a lot of sense... Save the money (small wedding) - buy the house... very good planning :)

I think so, too. Weddings are overrated. LOL

I should probably update this and say that today we went to drop off the ring to get sized, and saw a princess cut diamond that is slightly bigger (by like .012 or something) for the same price, so we ended up getting that one in place of my original one. I didn't want any ring but the one he gave me, for the sentimental reason that he picked it out for me, and the size (1 carat!) was way big enough as it was, but he didn't know that I really liked princess cuts more, plus that cut looks better on my hand. So we went with that one. I would have been completely happy with the original one, but he insisted. LOL Which is also fine. :) I left it there to be sized, so I don't have any pics of it yet. :( But I LOVE it. :)

They're both beautiful. I'm sure it is even more beautiful on your hand where it belongs!
