Well girls, I figured it was my turn.

After four years of dating through college, my fiance and I are now currently in a long distance relationship. He moved for a work oppoortunity with a family memeber and I have remained here to finish school and get a job. That's a story in itself though, which we are still trying to figure out the solution to!

But he came to visit me one weekend and met me in New York City when I got out of work. We had planned to just spend the day in the city, have dinner, and go back home to my parents house. He suggested going on the tour up to the top of the empire state building. While we were up there "on top of the world" he came up behind me with a beautiful ring and asked me to be his best friend forever. I, of course, said yes and shed the expected tears.

Then he tells me that he booked a hotel room so we could spend the night in the city. My first answer was "but I dont have clothes". He had that covered too though as my whole family already knew and my dad had dropped a bag off at the hotel. I couldn't believe they all know and I didn't figure it out. The room was beautiful and filled with rose petals and champagne. It was all so sweet.

I was most impressed though that he actually managed to suprise me! I hate suprises and always pry to figure them out. I think he was more impressed with himself for pulling off the suprise factor than actually getting engaged!

Now we're on to planning and are so excited for our Cabo Wedding!

      Nicole-- It's so nice to hear that someone else was in a long distance relationship that worked out too! You hear soo many that just don't last! Congrats to you two! Yeah with us its been like two extremes because we were actually living together for 2 years during college and now we're doing to the ld thing.. so sometimes I'm so jealous of my friends whose relationships are a happy medium!

      Jennifer-- Yes, I couldn't believe they knew before me and no one gave it away!!
