This is my engagement ring, in person. We stopped at the mall tonight because Joe wanted to get a Game Boy Advance SP. While we were there, I wanted to stop in at Kays to see what time we could pick the ring up tomorrow (the mall closes early tomorrow). The girl who helped us before was working there and remembered us. She said the ring might have come in already since some other ones did. She look and it had! I tried it on and it seemed to fit all right then.
Later on that night, probably around 9, I came back into my room after going out to the kitchen to get some food. Joe walked me over to my bed and sat me down and then got down on one knee. He said very wonderful romantic things and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I said yes, of course.
After having the ring on for a few minutes I realized it was rather big. I had my finger sized at the jewelry store and they determined it to be 5.5 but I think it’s more of a 5. The ring kept really sliding around on my finger. I’m not going to get it resized again till after we get back from Missouri. I want to be able to show his family. It takes 7-10 days to get it resized. For now I put some adhesive bandage artfully on the inside of the back of band to make it a little smaller. It fits fine now, but of course I don’t want to have adhesive in it forever.
I’m very excited…Joe and I had been talking about marriage on and off since we met. And now we’re finally offically engaged.
