A New Shiny Ring!

A new shiny ring can only mean one thing.....WE'RE ENGAGED! I just can't stop saying it! I called my mom the other day just to say it again! Sach finally took the plunge and popped the question on July 2nd/3rd. I've had so many people ask me how he did it, so here goes.
We had a really nice evening. I cooked a very good dinner of chicken parmasean and bought some wine for me and a few beers for Sach. We watched movies and just hung out. We love nights like these. We were lying in bed and talking about how we wanted to get married and have kiddos together. This time of night is both of our favorite times because it's just us and we have great talks when we're in bed. He then started asking me how I wanted him to propose. I said "You can't ask me! That would ruin it for me!" So he said "Would you be mad if I did it now?" I thought he was totally joking, he does that quite often. I said I wouldn't care, still thinking he was joking.Then he made me feel his heart racing! Then mine started racing! He got out of bed and walked over to his dresser drawer and all I could do was just lay there not moving and I'm pretty sure I wasn't breathing either! I heard the "pop" of the box and he said "Could you at least sit up on the edge of the bed or something?" I was freaking out on the inside. So I sat up not saying a word and just looked at him. I couldn't tell if it was a joke or if he was serious. He got down on one knee and pretended to put a ring on my finger. I was thinking, 'I'm going to be so upset if he's joking!' But then I felt the coldness of the ring on my finger and he asked me "Would you be my wife?" and I said "YES!" and hugged him. Then I said "Yes, Yes, a thousand times Yes!" I've always told him when he asked me that is what I'd say but in the craziness of the moment I almost forgot! :) I cried like a baby. And I haven't stopped smiling since! :) He keeps saying he's sorry I don't have some romantic story but I LOVE my story. He did it at a very special time for us and it couldn't have been any better. Although it was 1 am I still called my mom and woke her up as well as my dad :) I don't think they minded. So here is the beautiful ring. I picked out the design (ish) and Sach had it made. The main diamond is my parent's diamond. My mom gave it to Sach to have put in my ring! I LOVE IT!! and it just makes the ring that much more special.
I can't get over how pretty it is!

It looks even better on!

We're super excited and I can't wait to start planning my wedding!!!! :)

Woo Hoo! Congratulations Chelsea! That is sooo exciting and your ring is absolutely gorgeous!! I love that it is your parent's diamond. All the little diamonds in my wedding band are from my mom's ring when my parents were married. It is very special to keep things in the family that way. Good luck with the wedding plans and have fun with it!
