My fiance, Corey, and I graduated a year apart from the same high school. We had mutual friends, so we knew each other for several years prior to dating but never really hung out. In 2007 we ran into each other at a friend's party and hit it off, we've been together ever since. I must say since it has been SEVEN years since we started dating (and we've lived together for the last four) I was beginning to get a little inpatient with the wedding situation... Most of our friends are now married and/or have kids so we are almost the last ones haha. I knew Corey was popping the question at some point because we had been talking about it but I had no idea he was going to propose when he did.
Corey proposed on NYE this past year before we went out to dinner with friends. I was in the bathroom doing my hair and he kept walking in and asking me if I knew how much he loved me...I jokingly kept saying no and to go get dressed because we were already running late (story of our lives, lol). He walked over to the doorway of the bathroom and said I'm trying to tell you something and he looked extremely nervous like he was going to cry. He said, "I wanted to end the year on a good note and start the night off right," and he got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him. I was in such shock all I could keep saying was, "are you serious?!"
After dinner later that evening.
My ring, what is funny is a few days before this my cousin and I were looking at engagement rings on the Jared website and I showed this exact ring to Corey and told him how much I loved it....he has bought the ring the day before it was upstairs in his dresser drawer. He knows me better than I thought lol! It's on my middle finger in this pic because it was huge on me...I have little baby hands.
