    We went to Paris last September. I thought he might propose there but he's not very creative so when he didn't pop the question on the tower I was sure he wasn't going to, lol. We left the tower and grabbed a bottle of wine and sat in the park under the tower to watch the lights. We were half way threw the bottle, having so much fun when he finally asked. I was so surprised. It was really romantic. He was so nervous and cute. We ran back to our hotel and called everyone right away.
    A few days later we met up with some friends in Germany for Octoberfest. The first night we drank WAY too much and I LOST THE RING.....yeah I did. I lost it in some shady night club, classy right?
    Lucky for me he bought a replica for the trip (smart man) and my real ring was safe at home. I will never live it down...

        Wow thats wonderful.... Louis took me to Paris last year for a Valentines Day gift everyone including myself thought he was sure to propose then but to my disapointment he didn't although we had an amazing time (Paris is soooo romantic). Insted he prosposed 3 months later on mothers day at a family gathering. His reason is that he wanted to propose in front of all our family......... Im just glad he finally proposed!!!! I LOVED PARIS....
