A few more details

So yes, I got a little sneaky yesterday and snuck my big news into the end of the post:-) I was testing to see if anyone really reads all the way to the end, I guess... Many, many thanks for the kind words, and especially from the people who came out of the woodwork to say Hi (that is a hint...comment more!) or even a couple who sort of came back from blog-oblivion!

My original post was a total of five words "He asked. I said yes." But I figured I should put a little more effort into it than that. And truthfully, I feel like the post kind of captured how it actually happened...it wasn't unexpected in the grand scheme, but it certainly was a surprise at that exact moment.

See, only e.b. picked up on the little hint I dropped on Sunday about dinner Friday night (or, at least she was the only one who spoke up about it). I felt like it was a little suspicious...he made a reservation at a restaurant that we go to so much that we don't really need one. And, it was after we were scheduled to spend three straight evenings out. Knowing what was coming (I had told him to wait until after Christmas), I naturally figured that he had something cooked up for Friday night.

Being the nice girl that I am, I played along as if I hadn't noticed anything...even though it was clear that everyone else knew about this already:-) Turns out, that was all a ruse to get me to let my guard down! He is one smart cookie, and his plan was to get me to think it would be Friday, when in reality Friday was just a celebration dinner. As such, it did catch me by surprise when it actually happened.

And yes, I cried. But only a little:-) And I called a couple of people, but it was sorta late to call everyone I wanted to. I was happy that we were already headed to get Munchkin and see his sister.

On that note, Twin Sister gets a special thanks in her role as "ring consultant":-) The Boy asked a while back if I wanted to go and pick one out. Of course I felt that to be not nearly romantic enough...so I just told her exactly what I wanted, knowing he would ask her to come along:-D Somehow that seemed better...lol.

I promise not to bore anyone with hideous wedding details. When I finally get around to it, I might give you some brief updates, but I don't care enough about linens and silverware and invitations enough to really spend much time on it. I do have some bridesmaids questions, though...and I will probably cover that next week. So you all have that to look forward to:-P

One last thing, which is just about the cutest thing I have ever heard of. The Boy asked Munchkin's permission:-) In lieu of any living parents, he figured that was the best option...so he talked to her before we left for Chicago last week. That makes me smile:-)

That is so sweet that he asked Munchkin! How was she able to contain herself and keep it quiet?

Bob said...

Congratulations, and may you both enjoy a long and happy life together.

This is just such great news. I loved that he asked Munchkin. As for wedding details, share away. I may be in the minority here, but I definitely don't find such stuff boring.

I'm looking forward to hearing about you "not" caring about a bunch of that other crap. I don't care about a bunch of it either and it has resulted in my being unable to decide anything. I hope it doesn't end up that way for you!

Accidentally Me said...

Nicole - I like to think so:-D

SJM - Dunno...she is usually not great with secrets, but she did pretty well with this one!

Bob - Thanks:-)

Brandy - Hmm...maybe I will just put it in emails and send it to you...lol.

Jessie - Lol...this could end up as "famous last words":-) I think I will be the opposite, I will make decisions right away without thinking.

Maria - Yea, he is a keeper:-)

Congrats!

And, how cute that he asked Munchkin. That melts my heart.

My now step dad asked my permission when I was about Munchkin's age and I was honored. Speechless. That will mean something to her for the rest of her life.

Now, jump up and down! I'm so happy for you.
