My Boyfriend and I have been together for 2 and a half years. I knew he was going to propose to me. He even asked my mom if it was alright before he did. He told me it was going to be a surprise when he did it.
He is in the Navy so we don’t get to see each other as much. December 27, he came home on leave. On New Year’s Eve he went out and did shopping while I stayed back at my mom’s and cleaned because we were having a party that night. He didn’t get back until almost 8:30 pm.
Everyone that had showed up just kind of hung out and played games. About an hour before midnight I turned the T.V. on to watch the countdown to New Years. Everyone else decided to watch a movie which made me really angry because I really wanted to get my New Year’s kiss.
I decided to go upstairs and turn the T.V. on up there. My boyfriend came up about 5 mins later. By this time it was about 11:30. He sat there talking with me calming me down because I was starting to have a bad night. He told me my night was going to get better and I didn’t believe him. I asked him if we should go back downstairs and hang out with everyone again. He told me that he needed to talk to me alone so we couldn’t.
A minute before midnight he looked at me and grabbed my hand. I started to catch on then. He started to put the ring on my finger and recited a little speech and a couple seconds before midnight he said „Anna, Will you Marry me?”
I had to hold back tears to say yes. I was still able to give him a kiss when it turned midnight and I was newly engaged.
After that we went back downstairs and the first thing my mom said to me was „Let me see the ring.” That made my New Years!
