    Okay, so this is how he proposed. He booked a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico back in the fall and told me he had won a trip. So it has happened before so I never thought anymore of it expect that he had won a trip - as he does win a lot through his work. Anyway, long story short we travelled all day on January 2, 2007. After a 30min cab ride we arrived to the hotel, where there were two bell boys awaiting for our arrival. They handed us champagne as we got out of the cab. I had no idea this was set up just thought this was part of the fancy hotel (oh yes we stayed at the Grand Velas) Anyways, they checked us in and gave us a tour of the hotel grounds. After about 15 minute tour we finally were heading up to the room. While we were in the elevator I noticed that my FH was sweating. I asked him if he was okay...he said yes and I did not think anything of it. We then got to our room where the bell boy was ready to open the room for us, untill my FH quickly tipped him and told him to wait out here while we go see the room first. When I walked into the room I noticed on the table there was rose petals shaped into a heart with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. I had said wow, this hotel is great..look how they greet us. Duh me not thinking. Then I took a look outside on our balcony and saw there was more rose petals..I could not believe. My FH then said come here...u have to see the room. SO when I walked into the room there was roses & rose petals all over the bed. As I got closer I noticed the rose petals were words and as I got even closer i notice it said "Sabrina will you marry me" Then he gave his little speech got down on one knee and proposed. Asking me if I would accept the rose & this ring. ( which I have attached) I was in so much shock that - alls I could say was "are u for real" (I said this 4 times) then I finally laughed, cried and of course started screaming as my dream had come true. After that we had cracked the champagne and celebrated. He then had told me that our friends were going to be coming to the resort as well for the week and it was great to have them share this special week with us. I have attached a few pics. for you to see. I had no idea he was so romantic.

        That is lovely lovely lovely!

        I am so impressed that you decided on location so quickly, I've been debating and debating for over a month! And still no decision, and I've been engaged for 10 months! Ha.

        Anyway, I do at least know that I'm doing Mayan Riviera as well, so we'll talk more, and welcome! and congratulations!
