My engagement story!

Recommended Posts

The day after school finished (I am a teacher) a bunch of colleagues and I took a trip to New York for a week. While I was gone my FI was busy working away on his proposal for when I returned!


When I came out of the airport gates there was a man right outside the gate holding a sign with my name on it. He informed me that my FI couldn't make it to pick me up and that he felt bad so he arranged to have a limo pick me up. To be honest, I was a little bit disappointed because I was really looking forward to seeing my FI when I got in. Anyways, he took me to one of those Hummer limos and I hopped in.


When I entered our condo there were candles set up everywhere with a path leading to the living room. My FI was dressed in a suit and handed me an album - he had made a scrapbook (I am a scrapbooking fanatic) for me with pictures of us and love quotes. When I got to the final page, he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him.


I was so impressed that he actually made the scrapbook himself. He said that it took him hours of going through my scrapbooking magazines and countless trip to Michaels craft store for supplies. Of course he took a lot of slack from his buddies for making a scrapbook but I thought that it was perfect! Now I'll always have it to remember that night! I joked with him that now he has to add a page every year that we are married!


Here are pictures of the scrapbook

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
