It's about time I blogged it...

If Astrid's already onto it LOL. (By the way, thank you so much for your excitement and congrats A - love ya!)


That's right, my wonderful, beloved Fungus finally got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I'm cheating and copying the story from my JM board, but I told it best there.

"Okay, so it turns out Ryan has been planning this for some time. It turns out practically everyone knew before I did. My parents and siblings, his family, and most of our closest friends. He kept it a really good secret though, I even SIGNED FOR THE PACKAGE THAT HAD THE RING IN IT TWO WEEKS AGO, without even thinking about it and just gave it straight to him, because it had his name on it!

My dad was interstate though, and only came back this week, so he asked him this afternoon. Second time in Dad's life he's been speechless. The first time was when we told him I was pregnant LMAO!

I've been nagging Ryan for months now about asking me to marry him, and he's always been "I'll do it sometime. When you least expect it... muhahahah!" (evil laugh) He actually asked my ring size a couple of weeks ago, and I thought nothing of it because he can go months with a specific detail before acting on it. Turns out he'd already bought the ring and wanted to make sure he had guessed right!

Tonight we'd had our usual weekly dinner with some friends of ours, and their friends had come too with the ittiest, bittiest little doll of a daughter. Naturally of course she makes me very clucky, and as soon as we are home I am telling Ryan I want another baby.

He tells me, "I'd rather wait until we're married for that," and me being a total smartass (and walking straight into it) goes "Oh yeah, when's that going to happen?"

The next thing I know, Ryan says "How about now?" and he's got a ring from his pocket and is down on one knee! He did in fact ask me, but I'd already gone into adrenaline shock (and squealed LOL!) so I don't remember hearing the question properly. Once he stood up I said "Are you serious?" and he said yes, and then I hugged him and squealed some more before trying on my very pretty new ring!

It's two little diamonds in a two white gold bands that run paralell and have a little kink where the stones are set. Very simple and delicate. (I've been telling him for months about the type of ring I want LOL, and he definitely listened!)"

Well then at least you know that your man can keep a secret. Hmm Maybe you should let him plan the entire wedding, and let it be a surprise.

I'm so excited for you and Ryan, congrats to you both.

btw I had no idea you were on JM (so i am i look for me :D)
