He didn't ask my parents and he tried to make it a surprise, but that was ruined when the dummy had the bill for the ring sent to the house (so I knew he bought the ring). But luckily since I knew the ring was in possession, my nails were spiffy for weeks lol
He didn't do 3 or 5; which was fine…I was so happy it was just the two of us in that moment. In all fairness, his original plan would've included #5 but the weather didn't cooperate, leaving us alone by ourselves
Also, I knew it would be coming at some point in the summer, so I was making sure my nails were always done.
FH didn't ask my parents (my dad's gut reaction was actually a playful jab at this), he did his absolute best to make it a complete surprise (we'd been talking about getting engaged for a few months, and I'd overheard a suggestive phone call with his mom but had no clue it would happen when it did). He didn't use my full name because instead of just letting him get down on one knee and do his thing I sort of interrupted with a "what are you doing?" he DID have it caught on camera since his parents were in on it, and man I wish my nails had been done.
I kind of asked so uh, no lol I asked him "why don't you just marry me" while we were laying in bed drinking wine and he goes are you proposing? I was like yes, no? I don't know but we love each other and he goes yes, I will marry you. We have been engaged ever since. Not traditional and he tells me that I stole his day lol I tell him all the time if he wants to do his own proposal he is welcome lol. Either way it's all good.
