    i just wrote this all out for my wedding website so figured i'd share it too

    On May 5, 2008 I went to Bikini Bootcamp like any other Monday knowing we were celebrating our first anniversary that weekend in Canmore and crossing my fingers for a proposal at that time. Coming home, tired and sweaty there is note taped to the front door “ Hi baby! I know it’s not our anniversary but I thought we could have some fun!! So put down your bag because I got you a treat. So go to the room where you would get something to eat”

    Getting all excited, curious and not reading the note properly I went into the bedroom where I found another note, flowers, and written on the computer screen was "I love you". “You have found your purple flower!! You have made it this far so don’t get sour, go to the room where you would take a shower!!”

    Moving to the bathroom as the note indicated was a bubble bath waiting for me and another note “Mmm…a nice warm bath after boot camp could it get any better? But don’t jump in yet you first have to go look where you would get a letter!!”

    Mystified at why I had to go to the mailbox downstairs and leave the condo I did as I was told and found the last note “You have made it to the end the game is finished my sweet, so go upstairs and get your treat!! Mwah!”

    Going back upstairs I find my FH all dressed up in a tie, on one knee asking me to marry him. Shrieking like a crazy person “Yes, yes, yes!” I threw my arms around him to find he was hot and sweaty from hiding in the storage closet while I wandered the house following his scavenger hunt proposal.

    Only after admiring my beloved engagement ring for a bit did I notice stargazing lilies in the kitchen. Whoops, I missed the first note “Well now that you have found the flowers not yet in full bloom, why don’t you take a walk into the bedroom” by going to the bedroom instead of the kitchen

    Leave it to FH to surprise me with a creative proposal and leave it to me to do it wrong by being too excited and skipping stuff. lol

                    That part brings back some memories of my proposal. Gets me all warm and tingly.
