    Okay, so I will try to give the short version but god knows that isnt easy for me!

    So we were heading to London, and he had already told me that he wanted to marry me but hadn't found a good ring yet and the timing wasnt right but our time would come. And I was okay with it at that point. I was like, oh well, when the timing is right.

    So we spend 3 wonderful days in Scotland, and a few more days in England. He told me since staying over new years was my idea, I had to find something fun for us to do. Anything I recommended, he wasnt into, until finally he said, lets get food and candy and vodka and relax together in the hotel room. (We were absolutely exhausted from being tourists all day!). So we were just drinking and playing and laughing at the TV and then at around 11:30 pm he suggested a walk to see if we could see fireworks. So we went out and found alittle pub near our hotel in South Kensington. By the time we got there, we heard cheers and got upset that maybe we missed NYE. But they were just beginning the countdown. We were actually outside the pub with most people (everyone smokes in UK, but the bars don't allow it!) and at NYE we hugged and kissed and said I love you baby, and then he pulled me around the corner (away from the masses) and dropped to his knee. I pretty much lost it and started saying OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. It gets blurry from there. But I said yes and started balling my eyes out.

    We wanted to go in and have champagne but realized we both left without money or wallet or anything. As we walked back to the hotel to get money, we heard a brittish gal on the phone saying "some american just proposed to his girlfriend!" It was so cute. We got money and shared champagne and met some locals. It was the best New Years ever. And I dont normally like New Years that much!!!

    I didn't sleep that entire night because I was so happy and excited, and couldnt believe that I got exactly what I wanted more than anything (I adore this man, I am sure you all understand!!!). I also wanted to show him how domestic I would be, so I repacked his luggage for our flight the next day, in the dark! Suffice it to say, that domestic goddess in me didnt last.

    He did good...

              That's a great story! I have days where I'm super domestic, and other days where I bomb.
