Todd asked me to marry him while we were housesitting for a friend on Labor Day (September 7th). We were laying in bed, I mentioned how much I loved going to sleep with him every night and waking up with him every morning, and I didn't want it to end. And he replied "I'm glad to hear that because there is something I want to ask you", got out of bed, down on one knee, and took the ring off of my right hand, asked me to marry him, and put it on my left hand!
A few days later he gave me his mother's ring :)
We want to get married in October of 2010, but my parents are no longer willing to pay for it, so we will have to do it ourselves. It will have to be an EXTREMELY low-budget wedding, and we will have to pay for it slowly over time as we both have no credit cards in our lives anymore! So any suggestions, ESPECIALLY for local venues, would be appreciated.
