Ricky and I had been dating for 4 years before we got engaged. When it came to him asking me to be his girlfriend, he was very traditional. On December 30, 2006 he came to my house and asked my dad if I could be his girlfriend. My dad, being a normal "protective father," printed out a blank universal application and gave it to Ricky for him to fill out. I could not stop laughing, it was so funny to see the expression on his face. Of course my dad was only just kidding with him, but . I was so happy that we got together because he truly is my bestfriend:) December 30, 2010 was day my fiancé proposed to me, this was our 4 year anniversary. I honestly had no idea what he had planned for that day, so when it happened it felt like a dream. The night before, as he was dropping me off at my house, I asked him what his plans were for the next day. He began to tell me the plans, me jokingly (but really hoping he would say yes) asked “You’re not proposing are you?:” You see, this was a little insider between Ricky and I. One of our friends yelled that out during a dinner at Denny's once while my now fiancé was talking to me. Ricky looked at me with the most heartbreaking face I had ever seen and said, “I wish that on our four year anniversary I could propose to you but you know I cant beebee.” I understood and kissed him goodnight. That night, as I laid in bed, I kept on telling myself "he's not going to propose to you so get it out of your head." The next day I went to work like normal did. Around lunch time Ricky cam by to pick me up for lunch. We went to a really good Chinese restaurant named "Chopstix" close to the bank where I work. After lunch he dropped me off and we said good bye. I was a little sad that I wasn't going to be able to spend my anniversary day with Ricky but back to work I went. To my surprise about an hour later I saw him drive up again and got down with a dozen roses. I was speechless. He hadn’t done that in a while and they looked amazing. When I got out of work he told me to call him because he wanted to take me to get my nails done. At that moment all these emotions came flooding in and the excitement of "could he be proposing tonight?” started coming back. You see a while back I had told him that I wanted my nails to be done when he proposes because people were going to be looking at my hand and I wanted my nails to be done. I quickly dismissed the idea thinking to myself "No, He already said that he wasn't". So there we went to go get my nails done. Once my nails were finished he took me home so I could change and get ready for our date. For dinner we had reservations at a really nice resturant named Sante Fe Steak House in McAllen. Thanks to the recomdations from Uncle Sal. It was so romantic, there was a man playing the piano, a candle on the table and dimed lights. The perfect setting for our date. When we ordered our food I wanted to try the quail and steak while Ricky had the lobster and steak. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. After dinner, we drove to “our spot”, the McAllen convention center. I know, I know it doesn't sound like fun but if you'd see the place you'd understand why we like going there. Anywho, we sat at a bench and talked for a while. It was pretty chilly so Ricky put his arms around to keep me warm... It worked! I had noticed that Ricky had a silver box with a real pretty bow. I wanted to ask "Is that for me?" but I waited till he was ready to give it to me. You see both Ricky and I had a really good eye for gifts and little trinkets that we know the other would like. So when I knew he was gettin me something for our anniversary I was curious to see what it was. Of course he never gave me a clue as to what it was. After an all day anticipation for my gift he finally let my open it. When I opened the box I pulled out the tissue and found nothing! For that split second my heart sank. Smiling, Ricky told me the gift was inside the tissue. In my head I’m thinking “ You're not getting proposed to Elizabeth, you're not getting proposed to, You're not getting proposed to. Its just a necklace Elizabeth, get over it!” When I finally shook the idea out of my head and opened the tissue, there it was. The amazing maroon Heilzburg Diamonds box. I just stared at it with a shocked face. At that moment my eyes began to tear up. Ricky grabbed the box and went down on one knee and asked if I would spend the rest of my life him.. It took me a while to answer because it felt like a dream but when I finall found my voice I said YES! After that moment everything felt surreal. We went and told every one we knew... Ok so we only told our family but still it was fun. This truly was the best day of my life... so far!
