It went something like this… where are you in our relationship on a scale from 1-10
6-facebook update “in a relationship”
8-talking about marriage ring shopping
10- married yesterday
I said I was a solid 7! He said he was somewhere around a 4! So that was awesome.
7 months go by and we’ve yet to have another one of these talks. We’ve spent everyday in summer together. And on our last day in NJ he drops down to a knee I was shocked!
The night prior I had walked into his bedroom to tell him I was signing up for my fall classes (registration had just opened) I was also asking if I was still on scholarship ? And that a credit card was needed ( I officially hadn’t “worked” for months because I was traveling so much with Dallin and I was on “the scholarship” for the past two semesters winter and spring) – I only recently, this spring, found out I wasn’t on the official scholarship program they were just taking care of it) lol – anyways I was hoping then he would say don’t go to school lets have a wedding in the fall. But no it was more like yeah lets sign you up for classes, I’ll pay for it in the morning.
Morning comes around, we play an awkward game of tennis (apparently he had the ring in a ring box in his pocket) the family announces over the intercom that we are all headed to the boardwalk. All 70 of us hop in multiple cars. Im not even in the same car as Dallin.
We park and I try to catch up with him, but he keeps walking ahead of me. And then he drops down on his knee and I see a beautiful ring.
His family circles around and time stands still. Is this really happening? I’ve been with you everyday, when the heck did you buy a ring? Did your whole family know? (obviously they were all there snapping pics and videoing it) Does my family know? Did you ask my dad?
I started crying, I literally had wanted this for so long. The first thing I said when I saw Dallin from a far at a pool party was “Im having that guys babies”
Dallin stood up and kept asking over and over if I had said yes. I told him I didn’t, but I it’s a YES! I just needed to process.
We were married that September.
10 years and 4.5 children later. I love spending everyday with you DallinNJ!
