I Ruined My Own Proposal | Storytime

Okkkkkkay, Hi! I know I have been MIA but instead of making up a zillion excuses of why I haven't been updating my blog, I thought I would bring you a story time post of how Hesten proposed as our anniversary is coming up on Friday! It's pretty funny and cute though. Enjoy lovelies. <3



They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and some time in our relationship. Hesten and I needed to be apart to know that we were in fact meant to be together and wanted to be... forever.
A couple months after Hesten and I got back together, one of his close friends invited us to go to a baseball game with his girlfriend at the time. It was a lot of fun, we went back to their house and Hesten had a few too many so I had to drive. We went back to his apartment so he could get a few more things because he was in the process of moving back in with me. While he was inside, I was sitting in the driver's seat and happened to look down and see a very beautiful red ring box in the door.

YES, I FOUND THE RING BEFORE HE COULD ACTUALLY GO THROUGH WITH HIS ORIGINAL PLAN.

What do I do? Pretend I didn't see it? No.. I opened the box and screamed, I was so happy. I ran inside and told Hesten I found it and I loved it and that I couldn't wait to say yes! I told him to go through with his original plan and I promised to act surprised. He didn't really say much as I'm sure he was trying to figure out what he was going to do. haha.

WHY WOULD I TELL HIM I FOUND IT?

Because he is honest to God my best friend and there is NOTHING I don't tell him, and I knew I could never keep this from him.


We get back to our apartment, and I hop in the shower. The shower is where I do most of my thinking so of course I was dreaming of this big beautiful proposal and imagining how our wedding day would be. My oldest sister, Missy, had actually been assisting him with the proposal planning. I hop out of the shower and I had a text from my sister and it said something like "OMG. HURRY UP AND OPEN YOUR DOOR!" so I thought that meant she came over unexpectedly. So I dry off, wrap a towel around me, and fling the door open to run and get dressed.

There he was. On one knee. He smiled and say "I love you very much. Will you marry me?"

He proposed me that night, in our apartment, with me fresh out of the shower in a towel.

It could not have been more perfect because it represented our relationship so much... not going as planned but always going as it was meant to.

WHAT WAS THE ORIGINAL PLAN?

 He was going to propose in front of my whole family when my Grandma came to visit from California. He knows how much my family means to me.

THE RING 
I love love love this ring, Simple and elegant.



















A few days ago, he surprised me with this beauty, my new wedding set.





















Happy TWO YEARS Hesten! I love you! <3
