Put a Ring on IT, Boo!

by Notorious Spinks on 08.31.2012

I love marriage.  I love everything about it…I’m already looking forward to my engagement ring from Hearts on Fire.  Shhhh.

Optima-Solitaire-Engagement-RingDon’t judge me, boo!

But seriously, my dream has always been to marry and have kids…In that order.   There is something about knowing that I’ll wake up in the morning, stinky breath and all, next to the one who put a ring on it.  In my head I see us (by the way he looks like Idris Elba) standing before God, our families and friends vowing to love each other until death do us part.   That’s a serious vow and I don’t intend to take it lightly.

Now to tell you about the man who will set my heart on fire.  He will be handsome, kind and able to tolerate a spoiled girl who is still mama’s baby.  He’ll understand that even though I love hard that I can also despise you with the same intensity when you violate me or those who I love.  Not to mention that I’ll click out about my Goo & Kay(great-nieces).  He’ll know all that and he’ll still love me.   I see him in my head, coming home with beautiful trinkets to surprise me when life gets hard and I just want to give up.

Beloved Engagement Ring & Pendant I know this pretty ring and matching pendant from Hearts of Fire will cheer me up when the kids won’t stop calling my name.  I laugh out loud when I think of how I used to do it to my mama just to piss her off.  Ha…Karma.

Now when my Mister will come along, I don’t even know.  In all honesty I’m not even rushing it but single life is getting old…I’m getting younger, you know.  But seriously, there is just something about being with that one who I intend to grow old with.

I know marriage won’t be easy but I look forward to the work it will require.  Besides anything worth having is worth working for.

So Spinkies, where and how did your Mister propose to you?  Share the deets!

My husband proposed to me three times…the first when I returned from Italy, the second in a restaurant on bended knee, and the third in our church…he’s a romantic :)

The entire time I read this, I was hearing Beyonce’s song playing in my head. LOL

My husband didn’t propose. I told him, “we should get married” and he was like, “definitely” and then we did a few weeks later. LOL!

My husband’s proposal was neither romantic or interesting, but the ten years of marriage has been wonderful, so I guess it’s a trade off, lol.

My proposal wasn’t a surprise…I kind of wish it was.

Very pretty pieces.

Marriage is work, but is worth it as well.

My husband proposed to me on my Birthday (day after Christmas) at Disney’s Boardwalk Hotel. Since it was the day after Christmas they still had all the different twinkle lights up. We were outside on the boardwalk. He even got my friend to hide and video record it!

My husband proposed to me at home – one of our favorite places to be – without an engagement ring. He bought one for me a month before we got married (quick engagement) and even though he thinks it’s too small, I still love it because it reminds me of him and our beginning.

I’ll answer on behalf of my daughter since I’m not married now. He proposed to her in Disney World, her favorite place ever.

Beautiful choices! My husband proposed to me at the riverfront on one cold evening. I was freezing my butt off, but it was worth it!

That ring is gorgeous! My hubby asked me on Christmas Eve, 2001, after living together for 10 years. I wasn’t totally shocked. After being together for so long, we finally knew we wanted to have a child, and we both wanted to get married before trying to get pregnant. We got married Feb. 23, 2002, I got pregnant on my honeymoon and had my son Nov. 25, 2002. True story. :)

LOL kids won’t stop calling your name that is SOOO true, as much as it is annoying at times I dread the day they are not here to do it (as in, in my home)

I have no exciting engagement story to share.

Those rings are gorgeous! My husband proposed to me on my birthday, but I was kind of expecting it. I picked out the ring, after all. ;)

Nothing romantic for me! We had our first child when I was 19, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get married, you know being young and all. Once I was pregnant with our second I said, “are going to do this or what?” We bought a little ring and I was married 9 months pregnant.. :-) We had Justin 5 days later.

Awe! What a great wedding gift.

My husband didn’t really propose to me. After attending his friend’s wedding (who had been dating his fiance for over 10+years before tying the knot), I pretty much told him I was going to wait around that long for him. He either knew if he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, or he didn’t. He said he did and we booked an appointment at SF City Hall.

Btw, my husband actually visits your blog now after reading one of your comments on my blog. He found your blog name to be very intriguing and thinks you’re a cool chick. Lol.

Notorious Spinks September 1, 2012 at 9:54 pm

LOL! Now that made me lol! I try to be a cool chick. Tell you hubby I said, “Thanks for the love!”

Kelly September 1, 2012 at 12:13 am

Aw, I hope that the perfect man finds you soon.

Honey I’ll be glad when it happens but I’m not rushing. LOL!
