My Turn to Propose

So remember this post when I mentioned the super awesome engagement gift I bought for Kristian? Well it finally arrived yesterday after some minor stalking of the seller on Ebay. I was suppose to receive it by Dec. 2 and needless to say I was a little annoyed that I didn’t receive it until this week. Once he was able to track down where the original shipment went he sent out another one along with two smaller items free of charge all of which I received yesterday. I was so excited to get home and give it to Kristian.

When he got home last night I made him stand in the dining room in the exact spot where he proposed to me and told him I had a surprise. I went in the bedroom and turned on Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” which was the song playing when he proposed. I came out and got down on my knees held out the box with the reel in it and asked him to marry me. I know, cheesy, but I couldn't resist my chance to propose. The expression on his face was priceless and I suspect very much mirrored my expression when he proposed to me. In fact he said the exact same thing I said which was “Are you serious?!” He was basically speechless, got a bit teary eyed and gave me a big hug. He was seriously shocked and kept saying that he couldn’t believe I bought this for him.

There was only one major hiccup. See Kristian is left handed…he writes with his left hand, he eats with his left hand, he even shoots a gun with his left hand so when I saw they had a left handed reel I thought SCORE! That is until he was looking at it and whispered “I reel with my right hand” D’OH! I almost burst into tears. I guess when it comes to fishing and using a reel he’s not ambidexterous. I was so upset that I had gotten the wrong one but he assured me that he would take care of talking to the Ebay seller and returning this one for a right handed one (I know the seller has right handed models). He spent the rest of the night showing and telling me about all the features and why it’s the best reel on the market and how much he loves me etc. I've never seen him so excited about a gift. He says that not only does he plan to keep and use this reel forever but that he really hopes we have a son one day that he can pass it down to. I hope so too.

That's really very sweet! That you took the time to get him a thoughtful gift and to 'propose' to him. I wish I thought of doing something like that. lol

It's a bummer that it's the left handed model but I would have thought the same thing...You did well though :)

I LOVE spray tan! I do the Mysic Plus spray tanning. It's a machine you step into and I think it give you a natural color. I had just been spray tanned in our engagement pictures that are on my blog.

If you go, just make sure you follow their instructions closely so it's not streaky. Hope that helps!
