Hey Guys!

I just wanted to share my news with all of you...I got engaged! I hope it's ok that I'm sharing it...I know I haven't been on here much recently but I'm still on a darn typing restriction because of my arm injury so it's been hard...but I've been reading EVERYTHING (point and click...gotta love it). So I was granted today up to 1 hour to be able to type and I wanted to share my news...and if my arm is ok tomorrow hopefully I can have another hour and then by Monday I may be good to go.

Anyways, my bf of 7 1/2 years (I know, long time!) proposed to me this morning. I nice, simple proposal...he woke me up after a nice sleep-in down on one knee. He doesn't have a ring because we're going to use a ring I inherited from my mom when she passed away...but he has a beautiful idea of what he's going to do with it (we're going to custom design it and change it a bit) ... and he's already talked to the jewellers to make sure he can do it So we're going next weekend to drop it off and make arrangements...but I can show the pic of the ring we're using for anyone who is interested:

The plan is to use the big diamond in the middle and likely make a solitare with a white gold band, and then use all the little diamonds on each side to make the wedding band.

Anyways, I just really wanted to share my news with you guys...I've told my family but his family are coincidentally coming down to visit tomorrow so we'll be telling them then, so I haven't been able to tell anyone else (friends, friends of the family) because my fiance (feels weird saying that) didn't want word to get to his family before we could tell them.

Well, I'm off...hope you guys don't mind me blathering, I was just pretty excited

Oh that is so great, just the type of pick me up you have needed. You seem to have been having so many difficulties for such a long time and that must make you feel great to know that he is there for you and loves you so much even through all of it. I looked at the pic of the ring and it looks so nice the way it is now, anything you do to personalize it can only make it even better.
So you had to wait 7 1/2 years?? wow, my bf and I are coming up on 5 years March 1st and I don't think it will happen just yet.
Anyway, so excited for you, and I hope this is the beginning of nothing but good things for you from here on.

Congratulations! My wife and I got married after 8 years together - it was worth the wait! We didn't really expect it to change us, but getting married deepened our relationship even after all that time togehter already.

Ladies & gentlemen take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

I'm so happy for you. I like your idea for changing the ring. It looks like it will come out nice because the center diamond seems like a nice size for a solitaire.
