    My mom! I was literally in the car ecstatic and staring at the phone until I had enough service to call her! My FH has called her to ask her permission so she already knew and she hadn鈥檛 said anything...although she did keep texting me asking how the weekend was going...

    I FaceTimed my parents, they were anxiously waiting as they knew it was happening. Then my sister and my BFF, THEN he was allowed to post it on Facebook. We called his mom a few hours later (it was NYE and we were on vacation so he didn鈥檛 want to call until after midnight)

    I didn't really have to share too much. All my family and friends were there when he did it.

    The first person we called was my mom. She was so shocked and had no idea it was coming, so it was a nice surprise.
