From a** to FI!!!

Recommended Posts

Paul and I are both in law enforcement - he is a police officer in MA and I am a prosecutor in CT. We met at a convention in Washington, DC. I was in line for the restroom at the Friday evening social function and he was coming out of the restroom. I had never seen this man in my life! He stopped, looked at me, smiled and said, "I'm going to marry you someday" AND THEN HE WALKED AWAY! Of course, I thought "a**hole!" We saw eachother later in the evening and asked him if he had ever had success with that corny line. He said that he never used it before.


Fast forward two years later, his birthday. He arrives at my house in his dress uniform, my first time seeing it. He asked me..."what did you get me for my birthday?" Once again, I found myself thinking, "a**hole!" BUT then he dropped to one knee, pulled out a little box and said "Because I was hoping you'd give me a yes!" And of course, I did.


To date, we maintain two homes in two states...on the north shore of Boston and in central CT, and given where we are in our careers we will likely continue to live apart during the week. But as you all know, when its right, its right! (It just took me a little longer than him to realize it!)

That's a super cute story!! I'm a prosecutor too. I'll have to tell my single work friends to keep a better eye out at conventions!

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
