So this isn’t actually a testing post, but it keeps it hidden.
If you’re reading this it means that I feel that you can keep a secret, and that your opinion would be valuable. Also I guess I’m reminding everyone that I must be a geek if I’m using a password protected blog post to release this news…
The long and short is, after waiting for quite some time, Becky now feels like she is ready to be engaged! We had a long chat about it and she’s come to the conclusion that nothing would really change, especially now that we own a house, but it’s still exciting! The wedding probably wouldn’t be for a couple of years because we just spent all our money on the house!
We will have been together 4 years on 11th July 2015.
On 12th May we’re going to see Ed Byrne and we’re in seats A10 and A11 (front and centre!) and he is Becky’s favourite comedian, so what did I do? I reached out to Ed and he has agreed that I can pop the question during the show! I shit you not, I did a little dance around the house this morning when he said it could happen!
I don’t know any details yet, he’s going to contact me once he arrives in NZ (around the 20-25th of this month) to work out the details. Presuming it goes to plan it will be awesome, and I presume we’ll get to meet him after something like that, so it’s definitely going to be memorable.
Not as traditionally romantic as always but it works for us. Ed has always been “in our lives” – the first day Becky and I met in person (after knowing each other over 6 months) she was showing me clips off one of his DVDs.
From my notes (cough) on the engagement ring, it’s to be under $1000, white gold and sapphire, emerald or diamond in roughly that order. This is the one I’m looking at, at the moment. White gold with Diamond and Sapphire.
Anyway, please comment, let me know what you think of the plan and the ring!
