He asked #AprilFool'sDay #thequestion #proposal #MFRWorg


My April Fool’s Day Proposal

My oh my how time flies.

Since I've been blogging, I like to use the April 1 date to share Happy Proposal Day! For those who didn't know, Handsome proposed marriage on April Fool's Day. He pulled me on his lap and asked The Question. I did say yes, but after he left, I began to have strange thoughts when I realized what the day was. Did he mean what he asked? Was he joking? What should I do?

I did what any red-blooded girl would do. I checked in with him. LOL. I asked (very tentatively), "I was wondering... Did you mean what you asked yesterday?"

He started playing with me. "Asked you?"

My gut went oh crap. "You know, about asking that question."

"Question?"

"You know, the question."

"Oh that. That question." He smiled. "Why are you asking?"

"I thought I'd check since yesterday was April Fool's Day."

He laughed.

"Would you mind asking again?"

He took my hand and did so a second time. I said yes a second time. With great relief. It certainly felt more real than the one on April Fool's Day.

Oh how funny!

My husband is such a joker, I would've been skeptical as well!

Happy anniversary to you and Handsome!

Hi, Liese! I was so embarrassed to have to ask again. I think he was going to propose the day before, but a friend came over and it was postponed. I've always believed he didn't really realize the day was April Fool's Day.

Hi, Karilyn! It's funny and sweet rolled into one proposal.

How sweet and funny LOL!

I probably would have done the same thing.

Good luck and God's blessings

Hi, Pam! It's a fun story. Maybe I should write a short story and feature it???

I love that he asked on April Fool's Day. It goes to show that your marriage would be filled with laughter and joy. And we all know that humor gets us through some of the hardest times!

Hi, Melissa! We certainly have laughter and great joy. And lately, I've been saying it could be worse. It gives us good perspective. Hugs.

Zara West said...

Happy Anniversary! That is a great story. Neither my husband nor I remember the date he proposed, but we never forget when - on the FIRST DATE. My answer- You're crazy!

Barbara Bettis said...

What a great story!! I'd have wondered the same ;) Sounds like you husband is a delight. Congrats on the upcoming anniversary.

Hi, Zara! Oh my, that could be crazy. I'd like to hear more of your story. :)

Hi, Barbara! I like the April Fool's anniversary over our wedding anniversary. He prefers it the other way. I wonder why...hmmm

I like the "pulling you on his lap" tactic (smile!).

Hi, Angela! It was so sweet.

How sweet! Happy Anniversary to you and Handsome.:)

Loved the story! Since my birthday is April Fool's Day, If been teased about it all my life. Finally, I got into it and gave the story that my parents were expecting a boy. I was born and said, "April Fool!"

Vicki Batman, sassy writer of sexy and funny fiction, blogger at Handbags, Books...Whatever said...

Hi, Liz! It's pretty funny. I just asked him what tomorrow is and he gave me a sideways grin. Happy Proposal Day! lol

Hi, Joanne! Thank you. As you know, tomorrow is a special day for us in many ways.

Hi, Ilona! How much fun! You are the first person I've known with an April Fool's Day birthday. May it be ever so special and with great cake.
