Our Engaging Story

Recommended Posts

Last Thursday, Nov. 20th was my fiance's birthday. We were at dinner in St. Louis with my parents. So dinner was over and we were finishing out glasses of wine...Michael thanked everone for a great dinner and birthday....he quickly followed that up with stating (and getting down on one knee) that the only thing that could make his birthday any better was me agreeing to marry him! OMG!!! I was so surprised.


I immediately errupted into tears. Lots of tears. Tears of joy, but it was kinda embarrassing. You know I said YES! The restaurant burst into applause...lead by my mother. And then he put the beautiful ring on my finger.....which started more tears. The crying continued with every happy phone call Michael made on the way home, once we got home and were alone, when we went to bed, when I put on the ring the next morning, everytime I told the story at work.....and so on. I am sure you get the picture.


We have been talking about getting married, and even have the date pretty much set. But it was something about it being said in public and with my parents that made it all feel real. I wasn't even thinking about him proposing that night....not on his birthday! I was....and still kinda am blown away. I found myself looking at the ring all day at work yesterday. Answering emails was actually fun....gave me an excuse to stare at my ring and not be obvious. The word at work spread like wildfire. I even had my sales staff from Phoenix and the east coast congratulating me! Wow!


Ok....this has gotten WAY longer than I had intended. So anyway.....we have a tenative date of May 2, 2010 set. Destination is unknown.....we are think of everything from Antigua to Napa.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
