My Christmas Engagement Story

Recommended Posts

Thought I would share it as I have not shared it with too many people.


So Christmas was 3 days away and my boyfriend, at the time, had put a huge box under the tree. Of course I'm like a, "kid on christmas, so I picked it up and it was pretty heavy. I was thinking a new microwave, as we need one. So Christmas finally comes around and he makes me wait to open that present last, thought that was odd, but oh well. So it was finally time for me to open the big box and to my surprise there's another box inside that one... not too much smaller than the first. I continue opening that one and it's filled with balled up paper and wrapping paper tubes. Then I get near the bottom where I find a hammer, rock, thermos, staple gun (which I was looking for days earlier to hang lights), 2 cans of Pepsi and then finally a small little purple Ben Moss box! I almost peed myself when I saw the box and then thought... it's probably earrings knowing my "boyfriend". So I open the little purple box and find a note... "Ha thought it was that easy, this is pay back for last year. You have to look in the Tree for your present". (The pay back from last year was I had put a note in a little ring box saying... "Will you" and then another note saying "Open the next box already". In the box was a key to his new gun cabinet, but I had been bugging him earlier about just proposing to him if he didn't hurry up.) On with the present in the tree... I looked all around the tree like an idiot looking for "something" until I finally noticed the most beautiful ring hanging from the angel at the top of the tree and he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the best Christmas ever and I totally did not expect it because he always said he would never propose on a holiday. I have never been so happy, other than the day I had my son... which was onty 3 months prior. I was surprised that never noticed the ring in the tree earlier, but he did tell me that he slipped it on the angel when I had went to the bathroom half way through presents. Said he got lucky when I said I had to use the bathroom because he was trying to think of something for me to go get or look for before the last one so he could get it on her.



Just thought I would share... it's nice to think back and remember... this was christmas 2009.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
