Biggest Surprise Ever!

You already know that I did not receive a ring along with my proposal. But what actually happened??

It began like any other Saturday night. We headed to a friend’s house to hang out. Much fun was had, and we somehow ended up being there until about 5:30am. I was nodding off on the couch, so we decided to call it a night and head home.

When we arrived back at our apartment, I was still so sleepy but the ever-clever Mr. Whale noticed that the sun was about to come up. Our balcony faces east, so we can sit on our couch and watch the sunrise without even going outside. I agreed to watch the sunrise before we went to bed.

As he often does, Mr. Whale then picked up his guitar and started playing a few different things. While the sun was coming up, he started playing a song that he wrote about me. (It’s so good, and I’m not just saying that because it’s about me!) Near the end, we both got a little teary. When it was over, he just looked up and, out of nowhere said, “Will you marry me?”

!!!!! I’m pretty sure I looked something like this (except a little more tired):

Of course, my first response was, “Are you serious?” (I’m very smooth.) He confirmed that he was indeed serious, and I said YES!

There was no hidden photographer. There was no ring. He wasn’t down on one knee. But it was perfect! Why? Because I was SO surprised! Which is what I wanted!!! (And as it turns out, he was surprised too! He told me that he didn’t decide to do it until the last few seconds of the song.)

I may not have had the fairy tale perfect proposal, but I wouldn’t change a thing. How many other proposals involve both people being surprised by it?! Aaaaaah! I still get a little giddy every time I think about it. And in case you’re worried, I do have a ring now. I got to pick it out, which was a little mini-adventure all on it’s own.

How was your proposal unique? Was it the way you dreamed it would be or was it totally different?

    Awesome! I knew my fiance would propose it was just a matter of when. I always thought it would be the most cliche & over the top proposal, which I actually wanted. But I was very suprised how intimate it was on my birthday, right before my party started, in front of my parents! Best proposal ever and it came from the heart!

    That is a sweet proposal ring or no ring. And how could you say no after a song about you!

    Aww that’s sweet! I totally don’t think a proposal has to involve a ring. He sounds like a romantic guy :)

    Totally not how I pictured it, yet perfect for us. Except I kept trying to hurry him out of the house before it happened. Thus causing more stress. Oops. Those were my first words as well. And something else like “is this for real?”

    Ah! My proposal is similar to yours, kinda! :) FI didn’t decide he was going to propose to me until about 15 minutes before (he had the ring, he just didn’t know when). And then when he asked, I asked him, “are you serious?” several times! haha!

    :) So sweet!

    Well sweetie, I don’t know about you, but that sounds fairytale-y to me. It doesn’t have to be a big production to be perfect.

    My fiance didn’t went down on one knee either, but it was perfect, because it would have been a bit out of character for him.

    @mz2handgrip: Awww. That sounds so nice.

    @Miss Wallaby: He IS romantic. He’s waaaaaay more romantic than me!

    @debeachgirl: Hahaha. That’s so funny that you were trying to get him to leave and he was trying to propose. Definitely guarantees a surprise though!

    @Miss Toadstool: Awwww. I guess you’re right. It was kind of fairytale-like. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
