The Engagement that didn't happen as planned.
Posted 17 November 2009 - 10:24 AM
For those of you who know Jimmy, know that he always goes above and beyond with certain things and of course he out did himself when it came to the engagement ring. Jimmy ordered my ring from Israel and it was supposed to arrive via fedex on Thursday March 19 (the day before we leave, however, his plans were again ruined when the Fedex plane broke down and the ring could not be delivered until Friday March 20 (the day we left). While at the airport Jimmy gets a phone call from Fedex to let him know that the ring has arrived and he can come pick it up, however, we were already at the airport. He frantically calls his sister Erica, to pick up the ring. At this point, he was having second thoughts because he didn't know if he should take the events that had occurred as signs to not propose..Thank GOD for Erica, she would not let that happen!!! lol From this point on Erica took over with the help of Roseanne and Melonie.
When we arrived back home after a wonderful weekend, I went upstairs with Jimmy following close behind and I could see light coming from under the door and I heard voice, so I asked him "Did you leave the TV on?" When I opened the bedroom door there were rose petals and candles scattered all over the floor with At Last playing in the background. My jaw dropped and I was amazed at how beautiful the room looked. There were 2 dozen roses (a dozen white and a dozen red) in a beautiful vase on top of my amoire with candles underneath, there were ballons hung off of the head board and rose petals arranged in the shape of a heart in the middle of our bed with the engagement ring in the middle. Once I stopped gazing at the the rest of the room and realized that there was a ring I broke down and just started crying. Jimmy grabed the ring, got down on one knee and put this beautful ring on my finger.
Then Erica, Roseanne and Melonie come walking out of my bathroom (lol) crying with a bottle of champagne!! Then I realized that Jimmy never asked he just put the ring on my finger...so he took the ring off and he spoke the words "WILL YOU MARRY ME" and we all know I said YES. What makes this proposal even better is that Melonie set up her video camera and captured the entire thing, so I will have it for years to come and be able to show our children!
P.S. Jimmy called my father from the airport and asked his permission for my hand in marriage and he gave him his blessing.
The beginning of FOREVER!!
