So he finally popped the question? Yay!! I just know that you are over the moon with happiness!! But you are wondering where to go from here. I understand. 100%! Because I also just got engaged.
I was under the impression that my boyfriend and I were going to the World Famous Cain's Ballroom to help our friend set up his band for their show that night. It was cold and sleeting and to be honest, I wanted to be at home cuddling with my dogs. But I went because I said I would. We pull up right in front and go in the front doors. The lights are dimmed, which should have been my first clue. We walk on into the large ballroom and I look up to notice the lights dancing around the room from the disco ball hanging in the middle of the room. I instantly wonder where all the people are. My wonderful boyfriend tosses his coat to the side. I am then thinking how silly to throw your coat on the floor to get dirty. He turns around and drops down to one knee asking me to marry him. It honestly wasn't until that point that I truly understood what was happening. (I'm clueless, I know) I of course say yes!! At that point "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" started playing all around us. He stood up and we danced. It is a moment that I will never forget. It was magical in every way possible.
But in the next few days, I also started wondering "Now what?" Well take it all in!! Enjoy every second of people congratulating you. Enjoy calling each other "fiance" for the first time. Love on them. Gaze lovingly at your ring (Don't forget to get that sucker sized so you don't loose it!) Be happy.
Those are the first steps to being engaged!
