“So, how did he propose?” He didn’t!

“How did he propose?!?!” This has to rank as one of the most-asked questions I’ve had in the past year and a half.

The answer seems to always prompt a bit of a shock followed by a “Huh?” or “What?” So I thought I might as well blog about how there was no proposal.

We’d been together for about three years and were more than comfortable discussing marriage and our future together. Gradually, he started asking things such as: “How would you like me to propose to you?” “Do you want a romantic proposal?” “Do you want a surprise proposal?” “Should I ask your parents first?” “When would you like it?” “Where would you like it?” “In private or public?”…

Eventually, I threw my hands up (not really) and suggested that we should just go shopping for an engagement ring together. So that is exactly what we did. Luckily, the ring shopping seemed a much easier process than the non-proposal and it was easy to find one that I fell in love with at Tiffany. I experienced far better service at Tiffany Perth than Tiffany Sydney though, and even looking and trying on the same ring style at both stores I enjoyed it a lot more at the Perth store because the lady who served me was so much more personable – it’s all about the selling skills!

So I guess the next question is: Was I disappointed in the lack of a proposal?


Wow, it must have been nearly a decade ago I lasted blogged on – it was always on the cards and, well, better late than never! For many of those who don’t know me: Hi, I’m Cheryl and as a teenager I blogged religiously and designed pretty websites for several years. And… look what adulthood has done! At age 27 now, I am a lawyer who still enjoys nerding out on coding and gaming now and then, but I also like to carve out a good chunk of time for fitness (damn the declining metabolism), reading and enough fun activities to say I live a happy and interesting life. 😀

For the immediate future of this blog, as I am heading towards one of the biggest milestones of my life thus far, the intention is to document my journey to the altar this year, including my experiences with various suppliers (which will hopefully benefit some Perth and Australian bride-to-be’s), the workouts and diets that *fingers crossed* will allow me to look and feel like a goddess on the day, and of course the random tidbits in life and musings of an opinionated geek.

And because I have just spent most of this beautiful Sunday setting up the blog and customising the template, I’ll leave this as a short and sweet intro. Toodles~
