We had been planning to go snowboarding today for a week or so and the day could not have been better. No clouds in the sky and it was warm. I honestly had no idea he was going to propose. Of course I always had the thought in the back of my head that he was going to do it soon but I didn't think it would happen TODAY! He totally through me off. Alot of our friends have been getting engaged lately and I have kinda been throwing a pity party for myself because I felt like my turn was long over due and Ryan kept apologizing for not being able to yet because he supposedly was broke. But little to my knowledge he has had the ring for week.
We went really early and got up to Canyons right as it opened. Although we were both pretty tired from not getting much sleep the night before we were both happy and excited to hit the slopes. We went on a few warm up runs and on our third run Ryan said that we should get a picture when we got to the top of us with our snowboards with the mountains behind us. When we got to the top he told me to go take off my board while he went to find someone to take our picture. So he went and grabbed this sweet little lady and he scooted back over to me on his board and bent down like he was going to take off his board and then goes down on one knee. Then he looks up at me and starts to say, "Janessa, I love you so much and I....". This is where I started freaking out and saying, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHAT ARE YOU DOING OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!". He looks at me and continues on with, "I have been wanting to do this for a really long time and I cant wait to spend the rest of my life with you.... will you marry me???" and while he is doing this I am literally hysterical. Laughing and crying and completely speechless!!! I threw my board and my gloves down (thankfully my board didn't slide down the mountain) and went down to his level and hugged him. He had to ask me twice because I couldn't say anything I was so excited! It was so surreal. It felt like I was being hit by a truck. I couldn't even believe it was happening!!! We only went on two more runs because we were both so excited to tell everyone.
My ring is so beautiful. Pictures don't even do it justice. But I knew people would want to see it. So here it is!! Its a tension hold in white gold and the diamond is .85 carats. He did such a good job. Thank you so much baby. YOU ARE DA BEST!!! I LOVE YOU!!
I have always been able to figure out his surprises before they happen. And Ill admit there were a few things that kinda made me wonder today but I didn't think much into them. For example he was so adimate on going boarding today. He only got like 3 hours of sleep at work last night which is a reason why we went so early so that he wouldn't fall asleep when he got home this morning. Second example was when we got up to the mountain and was putting on our gear he asked me before I even had my gear on where my camera was. I am usually the one that is worried about having a camera.. so I thought that was a little strange but didn't think too much into it. But it all makes sense now! I don't think it could have gone any better. Its still so surreal to me!! AH!!!!
