I’ve heard them all: “I like you as a friend,” “I think we should see other people,” “I no speak English,” “I’m married to the sea,” “I don’t want to kill you but I will,” “I’m not gay but I’ll learn”…

…but never “Mellzah, I love you more than anything, and you’d make me the happiest man in the world if you’d marry me. So why not slap on this ring and make it official?” Not until last night, anyway.

I have a feeling we’ll have to do a bunch of kitschy fake weddings so I can get all of the velvet Elvis out of my system before the real thing.

    HOLY SHIT OMIGOD FUCK I just squeed like a little girl.

    Seriously. I did it and then I went “What the hell is WRONG with me?” It was incredibly girlish and silly.

    But OMIGOD congratulations! I’ve wondered for a long time why somebody hadn’t grabbed permanent hold of you. Glad to see Jason is a smart cookie. Congratulations to you both….I’ll want to hear details of the wedding!

    cheers,
    Phil

      I love that you squealed! Thank you so much, and I will definitely keep everyone posted on all the details, especially if I go the kitschy fake weddings route.

    Okay, your nails were NOT painted that perfectly when he just HAPPENED to propose. I just don’t buy it. πŸ˜›

    Congratulations, though!!

    1. Mellzah March 24, 2012 at 11:25 am

      Hahahaha! My nails are *always* polished. The rest of me might look a hot mess, I might reek of BO, but the nails are always done. It’s the only way I can justify to myself my ever-growing stash of polish.

    Congrats!! Enjoy!

    This post makes me so fucking happy, I can’t even… YAY! Just, YAY!!
    Jason’s a sweetheart of a guy, and we already know you’re about as awesome as humanly possible, so this is just more fantastic than my silly, limited vocabulary can even express.

    YAY!!!!

    1. Mellzah March 30, 2012 at 4:57 pm

      Thank you, Tonya!

    Now that I’ve seen it in person: that’s a big MF! hehe. Lovely ring:)

    1. Mellzah March 30, 2012 at 4:56 pm

      LOL I’m surprised I haven’t driven off the road while staring at it.

  12. Aramada April 4, 2012 at 11:52 am

    Out-fucking-standing! You guys clearly make each other stupid happy. What more can you ask for? Congratulations to you both!

    I am finally getting caught up with everybody, so let me say congratulations on your engagement before it gets any later and I have to say happy anniversary instead! Deeply happy for both of you!

    1. Mellzah April 17, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

    We don’t know each other but this picture showed up randomly on a google image search that had nothing to do with beautiful engagement rings, manicured nails, or happily ever afters. I was intrigued by the picture and clicked and I’m so glad I did. Your statement made me laugh so hard and tear up at the same time so I started reading more of your posts. You are a great writer and so funny! Congratulations on your engagement, even though I’m 3 years late :). I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    1. Mellzah November 1, 2015 at 10:30 am

      That’s so sweet, thank you! πŸ™‚
