Sohappy's engagement story

Recommended Posts

I had hinted to Mike that I really liked fireworks thinking that maybe he would propose to me on New Year's eve.


The fireworks came but no proposal, ok so I can't plan my own proposal.


The proposal...

Mike called to tell me that he was coming early for our Friday date. I just figured he wanted to beat traffic since we don't live close to each other. I wasn't ready when he came, I didn't know that he had an agenda with a time line. So he rushed me out of the house.


He took me ice skating at Pershing Square in Los Angeles, this is ironic to him (he's from Boston) b/c its an outdoor ice skating rink in LA. They have it open once a year and it was romantic with the Christmas lights still on the trees. He knows that I've always wanted to learn how to iceskate. We got there late and the session was almost over but we still have time for a few rounds.


My legs were getting tired and he got scared that I wanted to stop altogether so he got down on one knee and pretended to tie his shoelace, slipped the ring on my finger, and proposed but some little kid almost ran into me and the staffguard? thought Mike fell down and rushed over and then everyone realized what was going on. Mike got so distracted he didn't even hear me say "yes".


He didn't stop there. He took me to a really nice restaurant (Cicada) where I was underdress. I was surprised to meet my entire immediate family there. Time was going by too fast and Mike was worried that everyone wanted dessert, luckily no one wanted dessert. He was still on a time line.


He checked us into the Standard hotel in downtown LA. He had me closed my eyes made me walk around and then put something in my hands, then I opened my eyes to a dark room with a sparkler going off. He said there's your fireworks! Good thing the smoke alarm didn't go off.


He then took me to the rooftop bar, as we got out of the elevators I was surprised to be greeted by my friends and a great view of the city I love.


Everyone was in on it all week long except for me!

It was special b/c he combined all the elements of what I love, my family, friends, and him showing that he understands I love LA too much to leave for elsewhere.


I can't forget the special fireworks he created for me.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
