New York City Engagement

Recommended Posts

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!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
