Rules of Engagement

Posted in Our Story, Real Life with tags , , , on July 16, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Call me the crazy bride that still has oh, iunno, 815 days – 3 hours – 20 min & 3 seconds til her wedding but really, who is counting? I’m really only counting on weekdays, I swear. Oh yes, and I promise I won’t be making this the wedding blog. I’m just a little more secure with the realm of peeps that read this one over the I Came, I Vent blog. So I have a couple questions since let’s just say I’ve never had a “traditional” wedding…

  1. How does the bridal registry work?
  2. Is he suppose to help me choose where we register?
  3. What do we add to the registry? Just stuff we need?
  4. When, where & how do we let people know we’ve registered?
  5. Do we invite our online friends *gasp* and hope for the best?
  6. Do we find out a way to live stream it? Do people even care that much?
  7. Don’t you hate it when people force feed their weddings down your throat?
  8. Anyone wanna fly to Kansas & go with me to try on dresses? *snort*
  9. What’s up with the something blue? Really?
  10. Is it wrong to want to wear pink converse like I did at our SL wedding?


Going to the chapel And we’re gonna get married…

We sorta gave up on telling our story I think. Haha! Well I have news… BIG NEWS! It’s huge!!!

Let me start with this:

That right there folks is my RL honest to goodness engagement ring! The RL Hawks proposed to me last Wednesday June 24th 2009. And of course I said “YES!” followed by a tackle hug!

How’d it go down? Well let’s just say I was completely surprised!

He sent me a text message that arvo saying “I’m pooped, I think I’m going to take a nap.” “Okay fine!” I thought (I hate when he takes naps cause I get really jealous that he can). So all the way home I’m telling Kelso… “I’m not going to call him, nope. Let him sleep & I’m going to take some necessary me time. Screw him & his naps, right?”

I drop her off at her car & head home. Pulling into my parking spot, I look for his car. He’s not here, must still be sleeping. Pfft! So I check my mail, and unlock my front door.


I opened the door to an apartment filled with flowers, rose petals & tea lights everywhere. Probably enough tea lights to make not only my apartment manager nervous, but also the Lawrence fire department. Following the trail to my bedroom, I find my man muffin laying on my bed that is also covered in petals. “Special occassion? Did I miss something?” Nope… apparently a guy can feel that a “little wooage is nice once in awhile”. So of course I’m completely woo’d and still a little skeptical.

(Fast Forward past steamy sex scenes 1, 2, 3 & 4)

So we’re laying there and I ask, “Okay so did you not nap or what?” To which he replied with, “How would I of napped when I was picking up this?” *handing me a box with a ribbon*


I open the box & OH MY FREAKING… OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUSNESS!!! Inside lay the most perfect 14k white gold ring with the most perfect pink sapphire accented on both sides with two small diamonds. *jaw drop*

“Will you marry me?” He asks…

“OH HELLS YES!” “YES YES YES YES” *tackle hug* *thump*

And there ya have it. *beams*
