Oh my gawd. I’m such a GIRL.

Ok, this is getting a little ridiculous. I can’t work. I couldn’t sleep last night. (I kept pulling my hand out from under the covers and saying, “There’s a ring on my finger!”) I called everybody I knew who was still awake last night at 10:30 PM MST. I called my oldest friend this morning. I posted on the blog last night and on tribe, Straight Dope, and even frickin’ MYSPACE today!

All I can do is keep squeeing internally, staring at my pretty, shiny, sparkly ring, and force myself to stay in my chair when all I want to do is dance a jig!

I never thought I would be like that, you know, Those Girls who are so focused on The Ring and The Proposal. Surely, I will be more sensible, I told myself. Sure, call mom, call my sisters, call my closest friends – but I found out that I wanted to tell the whole world.

So, world, (and there appear to be people all over the world who read this blog – who’s in Brisbane, BTW? please comment!) this is it. After 1.5 years of 1000 mile plane trips, 6 months of weekend visits, and over three and a half years living together in blissful sin with our kitties, a question was asked and answered. And I couldn’t have asked for anything better, or more, or different. It was perfect.

Yes, I will tell the story of the proposal – but here’s the story the Hulk told the world before I even knew about it. Makes me tear up every time I read it – and I’ve read it at least 6 times since last night!

OK, I’ve got to keep to my routine. I’m going to the gym in a bit, and then I’ll go home, and we’ll have a great weekend calling everyone else who hasn’t yet heard. This is it. It’s real. I’m totally going to marry this guy!

  1. Oh please. It’s ok to be that girl. It’s fun and exciting. Yay for you! Be all girly and squee!

  2. I have always known you are a total girl. You climbed trees in dresses!

  3. It’s true, I did. And then I played in the dirt and got all muddy and skinned my knees.But I looked pretty in my dresses, dammit.

  4. I would like to submit for the record that Mle still looks pretty in dresses.Though I’ve never seen her climb a tree in one.

  5. I wasn’t that into wedding planning and absolutely not “a girl” about it (I bought my dress 2 months before we got married, did my own invites, did no cake tastings, etc even though it was a formal, Catholic wedding with formal reception). However. I totally squeed over my ring. and I STILL do. I told my husband that I wanted a nice ring and that it would be the only expensive piece of jewelry that he would ever have to get. A diamond is forever, wedding details are not.So, I say squee away! Unapologetically!Very exciting!

  6. I’m routing my ISP through a server in Brisbane to keep you off my trail.Oh, and Congrats! Skype soon.
