Oh my God!!! Today was one of the best days I’ve ever had!
Greg asked me to marry him and I said yes!!! We’re engaged!!!
Here’s how Greg proposed to me:
This afternoon, when Van got back from running a few errands we opened our Christmas presents. The last present I opened was from Greg. It was a pretty good sized box was it was light, so I was curious. I opened the box and within was another box, also light. I opened that box and then there was ANOTHER box! The third box had a bow on it, I took off the bow, opened it up expecting to see a ring box, but to my surprise there was a AA battery!! I was like… what?!?
and I looked up at Greg (because I was sitting on the floor and he was standing next to me) and he was getting down on one knee, opening a box with an engagement ring inside – the one I loved at the jewelry store – and Greg said:
“We’ve had some amazing times together and I would like you to be with me for the rest of our adventures in life. Will you marry me?”
All of this was done in front of my family; my brother, Mom, Amelia, and Van!!!
I was so speechless that all I could do was nod!
And, I was so excited I took the ring out of the box and put it on myself!
My Mom was crying, I was tearing up and even Van had a few tears running down his cheek!!
I was so caught up in the moment that I didn’t see the note that Greg wrote inside the box where the battery was:
If you know Greg, then you know he’s into video games, especially Mario Bros. (we’re saving up for a Wii) and the note is in reference to Mario rescuing the Princess from the castle; so it would have said (if we were in a Mario game) “Sorry Mario, your Princess is in another castle”.
This is so amazing! I’M ENGAGED!!
