You Are Totally Going to FREAK Out!

Remember that time I was nervous on Friday? Well, I was nervous because I was meeting Captain Thoughtful’s family. Then I met them and they were ridiculously awesome. Then, Captain Thoughtful ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM AND I TACKLED HIM TO THE GROUND AND SAID YES A MILLION TIMES AND CRIED ALL OVER HIS SHIRT AND IT WAS SPECTACULAR!!!!


Yeah. That was a thing that happened.

  1. We’re going to pretend this just happened:

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! Congratulations! Show me the ring….. *scrolls up a minute, then scrolls back down* Oooooooooh……aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………………..very niiiiiiiiice.

    *sniff* Getting all verklempt….talk amongst yourselves…..topic: somewhere Ryan Gosling is softly weeping. Discuss….

  2. Wow, this is what happens when you go out of town and are preoccupied about being irradiated. People complete not only life consuming Chili Cheese Burrito Quests, but they freakin’ get engaged! Holy cow! Congratulations! That is so awesome. Now that you know where to find Chili Cheese Burritos, you should consider having them cater your wedding reception. Just thinking… Then your wedding face could be just like your quest completion face.

    BTW, that’s a mighty fine looking rock.

  3. Aaah i was just catching up and read the wedding post and was all “Girl on the Contrary’s getting married?! When did this happen?!” And then i saw this post. I’m aware that you didn’t need the backstory but there it is.

    I’ve been following your blog for over a year now, i think the 2nd time you were freshly pressed, the ‘no logic bone’ post and i’ve loved your blog since then, i can’t wait for funny wedding posts! Congratulations! I’m really, really happy for you πŸ™‚ xx

  4. Lots of winged congratulations on their way through the ether. Happy lives to the both of you. I love family engagement rings. They say it right. I think happiness in an inverse relationship to expenditure, so the least you spend on the wedding the better!! I spent weeeeny amounts of dosh and we had the best time. (second time around though)

  5. Holy Toledo, GotC! Coulda knocked me over with a feather when I read this blog. What a creative way to propose (and what a creative way to accept lol). I’m thinking the two of you should invest in some mascara-proof shirts for the good Captain. He will need them. Oh, and do have a wonderful wedding and live happily ever after, won’t you?

    1. Mascara-proof clothing is going to be a requirement for Captain Thoughtful from now on. Thanks so much! I’m definitely planning on the wonderful wedding and happily ever after part. πŸ™‚

  6. Hurray Hurray Hurray!

    I wondered if that might be who the important people were … but I didn’t guess you’d get proposed too as well!

    Will you take his name or go double-barrelled and be Mrs Girlonthecontrary-Thoughtful? That has a nice ring to it … but not as nice as the one on your finger!

  7. OHH DEAR GOD! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I totally did not see that coming πŸ˜€
    What a twist! I thought it was something unicorn related.

    So I guess you knocked them dead πŸ˜€

    Cheers to you!!

    OMG THAT IS LIKE TOTALLY AWESOME! Captain Thoughtful sounds like the greatest guy! Congrats GotC!

  9. Oh my, great news! Congratulations! All the best for the both of you. πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing that wonderful moment through your entry πŸ™‚

  10. That’s fantastic. I must admit to some curiosity about the important people. Captain Thoughtful must really appreciate your shoe style, or he must just have great taste generally.


    (And that’s a smashing ring!)

  11. OMG!!!!! GotC! I got CHILLS!!!! The good kind!! CONGRATULATIONS! Aw man, I am SO excited for you! And the ring is just GORGEOUS (looks like mine, tee hee)!!

    If you have ANY questions, just shoot me an email. I saved all of my wedding info, and I have no shame when it comes to telling brides-to-be how much things really cost and other tacky stuff like that πŸ™‚

    1. YAY!!! I will definitely be emailing you! We’re getting married in December so I only have 6 months to plan!!! My head is already spinning. (In a really really good way) πŸ™‚

      You may as well plan on lots of ridiculous possibly incoherent emails. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

  12. The Lady Boyle says:

    Many many congratulations! The ring looks blingy and awesome and what a great story! See, there was a reason for your nerves πŸ™‚

  13. So amazing! What a beautiful ring and successful “surprise” proposal – nicely done, Cap’n. Congrats to you both. I look forward to you mining the wedding planning and married “bliss” for more terrific posts!

  14. Congratulations! That’s so exciting — and how sweet to have you meet the family first πŸ™‚ One question, though: Do you wear your ring on the right hand? I’ve only seen it done with European friends before. And I’m crazy and had to ask.

        Well, there’s something funky going on here. I loaded the photo up into some photo editing software. If I flip it over left-to-right, or top-to-bottom … it looks like your left hand. But not here on the blog page.

      2. I know! I used my computers camera to take the picture so I had to flip my hand around and I didn’t even realize that it looked like my right hand. (Palm slap on forehead)

  15. Congrats! Hooray! Etc.!
    I went looking for a proper quote, but then I found this Muppet video on YouTube that I figured would be appropriate. It’s even got the Swedish chef. πŸ™‚

  16. Congratulations … I wish you much happiness in your new married life.
    btw … since you are “new” fiancee, I would like to give you a little advice …
    It is a gorgeous ring, but it is on the wrong hand πŸ˜‰

      1. Haha! It actually *is* on my left hand, I just had to flip my hand around to take the picture with my computer’s camera. I promise it’s on the right hand, which is the left of course. πŸ™‚

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AUGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!



    Yay, you guys, and thanks a million for sharing – you rock and NOW you HAVE a rock!

  18. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Mr Thoughtful is a lucky dude..and you my dear are a prize. Enjoy every moment, love every day and happiness forever. Can’t wait to read all the blogs you will post between now and your wedding (and your engagement ring is beautiful!)..

  19. Aingealsile says:

    That’s absolutely awesome and wonderful and amazing and fabulous!!!!

  20. OH MY GOD congratulations GotC! πŸ˜€ You too Captain Thoughtful, now you get to be with the most hilarious blogger (bloggress? is there a separate female term?) on the internet for the rest of your totally awesome life!! ;D ;D ;D
