Christmas 2007 Engagement Story

Recommended Posts

This is our engagement story, I just copy and pasted it off our website, so if your wondering why I'm referring to myself in the third person, that's why!



Jamie is crazy about Christmas and knew that he wanted to pop the question Christmas morning, but how...he tossed around a few possibilities and came up with the perfect plan.


Jamie and Lindsay had already come to an agreement that as this is their first Christmas spent in their own place, there had to be some ground rules. These rules stem from the stories of Jamie waking his entire family on Christmas morning before the sun has come up...every year. Lindsay loves Christmas too, but firmly believes in a good nights sleep and that Christmas isn't less special at 9 in the morning than at 6:30 in the morning...Rule #1 : Jamie is not allowed to wake Lindsay before 8am, a compromise for both. Rule #2 : Coffee should be brewing before gifts can be opened Rule #3 : Jamie had to take Bailey (our new 3 month old Boxer puppy) out for a pee before he wakes Lindsay up - three very reasonable rules in Lindsay's opinion.


Little did Lindsay know, Jamie had a surprise up his sleeve for Christmas morning...

He had prepared the living room by placing tiny tealight candles and stringing tiny lights all around the room, after being unable to sleep past 5am. He left Bailey and Lindsay sleeping while he prepared the room and then he was left waiting for 8am...not going to happen! So at 7am, he creeps into the bedroom to wake Lindsay up...he tells her that he has something to show her...slowly rolling over to look at the clock, Lindsay says firmly that it is not 8am and she will not be getting up for at least an hour. He starts insisting that she come see something, persuaded by his insistence, she pulls herself out of bed. On her way out of the bedroom she asks if he at least took Bailey out for a pee? He tells her he'll take him out in a few minutes...so far, two rules have been broken, so Lindsay's a bit grumpy at this point.

Luckily, this is where it takes a turn for the better.

Jamie was ahead of Lindsay, and leads her into the living room where she sees what he's been up to...it is beautiful, little lights hanging from the ceiling, several dozen candles and the sun rising outside the window...truly a sight to be remembered. As she takes it all in, Jamie gets down on one knee, opens the ring box and asks her to marry him! He said a few things, that neither one of them remember, but she said yes through tears and sleepy eyes. She was awake very quickly after that and obviously no longer grumpy. They both couldn't have been happier. Jamie took Bailey outside while Lindsay made coffee. They opened their gifts and got ready to tell everyone. They spent the day announcing the news and celebrating with both families. It was the best Christmas yet! How will Jamie top this in the future?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
