I’m still a newlywed. Right? I get to be a newlywed for a whole year. That’s the rule. So I’m still a newlywed until October 25th. Well, one of the plusses of being a newlywed is I get to talk about my wedding, which is one thing I’ve rarely talked about here.
I had planned on starting September 25th and posting a wedding picture and wedding story every morning for a month. But as you can see? I was too busy making donuts.
So, I’m going to start today, and pretend like I started Saturday. Okay?
And I’ll start with the engagement.
MrZ and I had discussed getting married almost since the day we started dating. By April of 2003, we finally were ready (after dating for three years) to start shopping for rings. We had decided to “get engaged” sometime in the summer, and get married the following spring. We went shopping for rings one weekend, and had a ball doing it. I knew NOTHING about diamonds and neither did he!
The next weekend I came home from traveling with LilZoot to see his Dad. MrZ handed me a piece of paper. I looked at it and it said, “Will you Marry Me? Yes/No/Maybe”. I laughed, said, “You’re so cute” and then hung it up on the fridge. We joked about stuff like that a lot, I didnt think anything of it. I just thought he was being silly.
Later, he said:
“Well, arent you going to answer it?”
“What? The note? No! Its hysterical just hanging on the fridge like that. Unanswered.”
Even LATER, he said:
“So, you’re really not going to check the box?”
“On the note. You arent even going to answer it?”
“Well, of course you know the answer. Everyone knows we’re getting married eventually. Its just funny to leave it like I’m thinking about it.”
“You should really check a box.”
As I turned to the fridge to check “yes”, I turned back around and he had a ring out saying, “Then, I can finally give you this.”
He was proposing to me! I thought he was being silly and he was being sweet and romantic! How horrible am I? heheh.
