    I was in Puerto Vallarta with my FH and his family for Christmas. We had walked down the beach to release the baby sea turtles at sunset. On our walk back to our hotel my FH said "hey look at that!" and ran out in to the ocean and grabbed a bottle floating. When he handed it to me, i thought "wow, this place is amazing. Someone is putting MIB's in the ocean at suset for couples to find while walking along the beach (just like fortune cookies) It wasn't until I opened it and saw my name on a scroll that I realized what was happening and my FH was on his knee infront of me with the little jewelry box I've dreamed about since I was a little girl. I cried for a couple of minutes until some girls walked by and came up to us and said "Oh my god did you just get engaged?" that I realized I hadn't said yes yet Ofcourse, I said yes and now we're planning our dream wedding in Mexico again this time in Tulum

          Funny! That was our original plan. We've collected over a dozen cases of empty wine bottles but I think it's going to be a little pricey to mail. I've been checking into some of the MIB web sites and it's still a possibility but we're running out of time and I think it might be easier to just do standard invites. I'll keep you posted
