Speechless

I was supposed to go out with my mom last night to get some shoes. I wasn't going to come home first, but I remembered Evie needed medication, so I did. I rang the doorbell (which I usually do because it takes forever to open the lock on our door) and *B* never answered. So I got the door open, and this is what I saw:

video
I know it's sideways, but use your imagination. I can make it rightside up on my computer,
but when I upload it, it goes back to the way it was filmed.


I walked in the door, and *B* had the box in his hand. There were candles everywhere, our song playing, and some wine on ice. He said "You know Kim, 'when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.' Will you marry me?" What can I say, I'm all about the cheese factor. Of course I said yes, and pretty much jumped out of my skin for the rest of the night. I think it was the most perfect proposal he could have done.

*B* took the video afterward. I can't believe I'm engaged! This is what my engagement ring looks like:

It's funny. Two nights ago, I really prayed for the first time in a while. I was just thankful for what I have and asking God to help me get closer to Him and to be a better girlfriend to *B*. Then all this happens!

*B* said he used an online sizing guide using another one of my rings, and he bought a size 5 the day after Thanksgiving. He wanted to propose before the end of the year. When he got it and saw how small it was, he had to send it back to get resized (I'm roughly a size 9). It just came back yesterday at 1:30, and by 4:30 I was proposed to!
