    Date: August 1, 2008
    Place: Augustino's Italian Restaurant

    I just knew that he was going to do it today. I just felt it when we woke up..he was acting kind of funny. Strange. I went on to work and sure enough he called and asked if I wanted to go to dinner tonight. I decided that I should do a half a day at work today so I could have time to get ready for tonight….you know eyebrows waxed, hair flawless and all I needed was something to wear.

    At about 4:30 (the time I get off work) he started calling me but I couldn’t answer the phone because I was in the mall. I went into Express and got what I wanted and headed home. Sure enough when I call him back the first thing he asked was where I was at and I said in a matter-of-fact way “In the car headed home”. I was hungry but running around going a hundred miles per hour it never even entered my mind. I decided not to stop because I knew we were going to eat and I need to hurry to get my bag and stuff put up before Chad (my FI) got home. To my surprise when I got to the house he was already there so I left my bags in the car. I go downstairs and I hear male voices and see my FI and his friends talking and drinking a beer. I decided not to complain and use the time to my advantage plus I just knew they would be leaving soon; after all we’re going to dinner. So I take a long shower and touch up my hair. OMG!!! They are still there talking about nothing. I decided to use this to my advantage again and go get my bags out of the car. I get dress…6:30 rolls by, 7:30 rolls by, 8:00 rolls by. At this time I am highly pissed and hungry. At about 8:00pm the guys finally left and it was good thing because I was just about to go in there with the ugly face . At this point I just knew he didn’t have any special plans. How could he?

    We got to Augustino’s about 9:00 pm and steam is coming out of my ears. We sit, order, talk a little, and begin to eat. He begins to tell me how beautiful I am and how much he wants to marry me but hasn’t had time to get the ring yet. So now I looking at him like WTF?....You didn’t have time? He changes the subject to something else and act as if he never said a word. I continue to eat my food not saying a word. He was just talking and talking about nothing and smiling (till this day I can’t tell you what he was talking about all I know is it had nothing to do with we’re about to get married). The more he smiled at me the madder I got. The waiter came and asked if we wanted any dessert and of course I said no. I was too ready to go! The waiter came over a brought the check. Chad then asked me was I ready and I said yes. We didn’t move. Then he asked me again was I ready…I said yes again and was hoping he wouldn’t ask me again because I was about two seconds from going off..of course he asked again…Are you ready? And I said to him "Yes! I am ready. I mean damn are you going to pay for the food? And what the hell are you smiling at"? He then came on my side of the booth and said…I’m not asking you are you ready to go…Are you ready to be my wife? AAHHHHH!!! I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. Then he said GOTCHA!

    He told me that he had a feeling I knew something. I was too happy coming from work. I personally thought my game face was on but I guess not. He had the boys come over and stay late to throw me off. At first they were only suppose to stay until about 6:30 but his best man and him and seen the Express bag when I was in the shower so the plan had changed to make me think it wasn’t going to happen. He said that he was trying so hard to restrain himself from laughing at the restaurant because I was so beautiful yet steaming mad. He said it was all over my face. Needless to say….It was the perfect proposal.

          So cute! My FI actually pulled something similar on me. It was our anniversary and after dinner he wanted to go have a beer with the boys. And I said "okay" even though I thought WTF? On our anniversary?

          Little did I know it was just a ploy to get me to the area where we first met where he popped the question.

          These boys are so silly Congratulations!!!

            haha that's funny. I remember fi on his way home from asking my dad permission (i had no idea of course) and i called him to see if he could stop and pick up soda. He gave me some lame excuse that he couldnt and so i got so pissed off and said "You better stop and get the soda". He was just in a hurry to come home and propose, and no he didnt stop for the soda.

                  Ha Ha thats great! My FI did something like that too. Tricked me to throw me off and then kept asking "would you marry me?" and I kept replying "yes of course" and then he finally changed it to "will you?" and I finally clued in!
