Christmas Eve Joe popped the question.
We worked a half day and I left the office to go get some last minute stuff for dinner. I got home cleaned up a little bit, Joe came and I began cooking dinner. We don't eat at home as often as we'd like so cooking Christmas Eve was a nice treat. While I was cooking Joe went to lay down on the couch. He fell asleep. I woke him up for dinner and we ate and watched some t.v. We were exchanging gifts that night since we weren't going to see each other Christmas morning. He wanted to give the big presents first which i thought was strange but went along with it (turns out he didn't know that most people go through their stocking's first).
We exchanged gifts near the soft lights of the tree. When he went to get the stocking's he had me stand up. He told me that my stocking had a theme. I pulled out an orange first. He told me that the orange represented all the things that annoyed me (i hate to peel oranges I think it's gross how the peel gets under my nails). The next thing I pulled out was a plastic spider ring. He said that it was to represent all the things that scared me. The third thing I pulled out was mickey mouse stuffed animal. He told me that it represented all the things that I loved (because I love Disneyland). The last box I pulled out was a ring box. He got down on his knee which is when I immediately started crying and told me that the ring was his promise to me that he would peel all of my oranges, kill all of my spiders and take me to as many places that I love as possible. He told me that he loved me and asked me to marry him. Through my blubbering I was able to get out a "yes".
I'm such a lucky girl. :)
