Fi and I had already told everyone we were planning on getting married in May. We had been shopping around to get prices to see if we could afford to get married any time soon. We decided to book some vendors while we were out. Well, someone overheard us booking the DJ at a public place and blabbed to FI's sister who immediately told EVERYONE. All of FI's family, texted his friends, mutual friends of hers and mine, and anyone else she could tell. So everyone started questioning us and we just admitted it and changed our status on Facebook so people did not think we were hiding information from anyone or playing favorites. He hadnt given me the ring yet and I just figured he would give it to me when he was ready. He was really disappointed that us getting engaged really blow up in our faces and a lot of people were hurt over what his sister did.
Last night he took me out to dinner and to cruise the rivers. It was really sweet and fun plus dinner was awesome. After we got off the boat, he wanted to walk up to this outdoor plaza where they were having a water and lights show. We watched it for a bit. And he took me around back to where there was a monument of the first blast furnace in the city. He starting saying about how he was unsure what he had to offer me and how much he loved me then he pulled out the ring and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I hugged him and kissed him and told him yes. It was hard to fight the tears because I was so happy. It was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me. Im so happy and cant stop smiling. He set up this big surprise for me all by himself and we had so much fun. The night could not have ended better.
