Never Been So Happy!

This weekend was HUGE for yours truly.

HSB is now HSF.  Yep.  Handsome Swedish Fiance!!!!!

Saturday night we went to a really nice restaurant.  HSF justified it by saying that it was one of the few weekends where we did not have our kids and that we needed a “date night.” I fell for it hook, line and sinker :)

The restaurant was beautiful (it was the same one that Tony Romo proposed to his girl on Thursday of this week), the food was amazing and it was a perfect night.  I seriously had no clue that he was going to propose to me.  Even when he came over and got down on one knee, I just thought that he wanted to be closer to me because the restaurant was noisy.  Duh!

When he pulled out the box, I lost it.  Of course I said yes, but I was so emotional that I was crying.  The whole restaurant clapped and our waiter brought us champagne for the occasion.  HSF actually prepared the restaurant ahead of time.  When the waiter came out and brought us a complimentary appetizer I thought that was odd, but HSF just played it cool, saying that sometimes they do that when they make too much and need to get rid of the food.  Yes, dear readers, I actually fell for that.

When we were leaving, the hostess at the bottom of the restaurant (it is a place where you have to take an elevator to the main dining room) stopped me and said “Congratulations- let’s see the ring!”  The whole place knew except for yours truly :)

I have never been so happy.  I am so lucky to have HSF in my life and am so honored that one day soon I will become his wife.  He is seriously the kindest, strongest, gentlest man I have ever known.  He is my soft place to land at the end of the hell I call work and I am so blessed he wants to marry me.  Me!  He could have any woman he wants and yet, he chose my crazy ass.

We haven’t set a date yet, but I’ll let you know :)

Below is a picture of the ring box and my ring.  How cool is the ring box???  Both the Swedish and American flags!  I am keeping that box forever.

The ring is a 2 carat princess cut solitaire with a platinum Pave setting!  He picked it out all by himself and it is PERFECT- just like him.

So Freaking Happy!!
