Well, I gave away what this blog was going to be about in the title, but YES! My mom got engaged!!
Here’s my mom…look at this beautiful woman:
Whenever we meet someone new, they always assume we’re sisters. Either she looks young or I look old. We’re gonna go with the former.
Anyways, here’s her amazing boyfriend Noah:
They’ve known each other for years and have been dating for almost 3 years. He is so sweet, thoughtful, patient, funny and all-around a great guy. There’s literally no man in the world who could put up what he does when my mom and I are together. We sing, we dance, we laugh loudly…we’re a package deal he happily embraces.
A few months ago, Noah asked me to lunch, just the two of us without my mom knowing. Well, I knew exactly what the purpose of the lunch was: he asked my permission to marry my mom. *cue happy tears*
So for the past few months, he and I have been in cahoots keeping this secret. He kept trying to get me to find out what kind of ring she would want. There’s literally no way to bring it up without her being suspicious, so Noah started to pick it out on his own. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, my mom and I were eating dinner, and she randomly goes “What if Noah gets me ring I don’t like.” My ears perked up, and I put on an Oscar-worthy performance.
“Well, why don’t you tell me what kind of ring you’d want in case he ever asks me what you would like.”
She went on to describe her perfect ring, and so when she went out of town on a business trip, he and I went to the jewelry store and picked out a ring just like what she described.
They planned to go to the beach together and he was going to propose there. The day before they left, he took her dad to lunch and asked for her hand in marriage.
The night of the proposal arrived, and I have never been so antsy in all my life. I just couldn’t wait for the FaceTime call. He asked, she said YES!
She had absolutely nooooo idea! How we pulled this off is a miracle, but it played out so wonderfully. There’s no one who deserves happiness more than these two!
Also, can we look at this STUNNNAHHHH?!
