Go me, and the missus.
*raises a bloody mary*
What was your proposal technique?
I won't even make comment on Celtic's nine, OH WAIT I JUST DID ;D
TELL US THE DETAILS. I will be leaving work shortly but expect the full proposal report on my desk in half an hour ;)
I want details! So exciting.
because we were't sure about posting our own.
I did this but now I'm going to say congratulations as well.
I hope to marry one day so tell me how it goes.
i need to reply to your PM. I will. :D
Being married is great - good move!
I want to know how it happened. Please tell the story!
ENGAGED DISSERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
Nice work :)
Fucking nice one :) hope all's well
WE HAVE A MAN DOWN, I REPEAT WE HAVE A MAN DOWN!
I hope you spent more than I did on a ring ($7 US).
Really? Did you replace it with someone more expensive at a later date?
I'm hoping that someone will propose to be with a haribo gummy ring. They'd have to buy me a proper ring though because those things get sticky after a while.
not a thing to be joked about.
Got it from a market in Cambodia. We didn't really see the point in spending money we can't spare on a fancy engagement ring.
one of my friends did the same for his fiancee (they chose the ring together), and when her housemate saw it she said "oh, is he going to buy you a proper ring when he asks you to marry him for real?"
I like that.
That's lovely news!
Eh, not the most romantic proposal. We were up in arisaig for a wee night away and i had thought about it in the lead up but then decided against it (not sure why) so i didn't have a ring.
Anyhoo, we went out for some dinner and drinks and got back to the B & B and sat up outside with some wine and weed under the stars (ok that's relatively romantic) then we were discussing fuck knows what (pretty steamboats by this point) and then i kinda just blurted it out, and she said 'but you have't got a fucking ring' and i replied 'do you need a fucking ring?' and she said with a big smile on her face 'no, and fucking definitely' :D
My mum is a jeweller and silversmith so we are going round there tonight so she can design/pick one out.
All pretty surreal and nothing much has really changed i suppose. But i am still fucking delighted! Mortgage and engaged, fuck me ai am Mr Responsibilty :)
I'm saving the occasion for when I meet you and I can say 'Goodbye, Mr Burton' and throw a sharpened celery stick at your heart.
It's all in the reflexes
I'll buy a bloody mary for anyone who quotes Big Trouble out of context.
I love hearing engagement stories.
My dad asked my mum in the car by saying "do you want an engagement ring or a holiday?" she said "ring please" and he said "okay. I only said holiday just incase you said no to the ring" and that was that!
