Sooooooooooooooooo, it all happened the day of my birthday on Sunday June 10th. First off we both got sick down there (I had finally gotten over my ear infection but Martin had caught a respiratory infection from my Dad which I then contracted while down there, bleh!) so needless to say I wasn't feeling too hot that day. But Martin said that he had something special planned for me that night so I had to go out of the hotel room and "do everything he had planned". (This was a fairly big hint to me, so I made myself get out when I normally would have totally just stayed in the room. Still wasn't sure, but thought I'd better go! lol) Anyways, he made reservations at this beautiful gourmet restaurant and had a gorgeous bouquet of flowers w/calla lilies, stargazer lilies, roses, etc. all set up at our table upon our arrival. There was a note that said "Happy birthday sweetheart!!!!!!". It was so sweet. At that point I thought all this might still just be for my birthday... Then we got through dinner but our desert was taking a long time and he had mentioned wanting to go for a walk on the beach. Just as we were about to take off, they came out with our desert which said Happy Birthday on it and they sang to me. I was already floating on a cloud. wink.gif Then after desert Martin was like "Hmmm, well it's almost dark already so let me figure out what to do next". I just sat there and let him think cause at this point I was kind of thinking "Oooooh, this might be IT!". Then he said "Well, there is one more reason why I brought you out - I have something to ask you..." Then he pulled out the ring and popped the question "Will you marry me?". It was so cute. I squealed, he cried - it was great! I'm pretty tired right now so I dunno how poetic that was, but I have some really cute pics that I'll have to post soon. wink.gif

I am soooo happy to be his fiancee (is that how you spell it??)!!! He absolutely is my rock and I adore him. To reinforce all that tonight I was having some issues with my boss at work and he was completely supportive of me and totally helped me work through it.

So far his mom has been great, she has offered to make my dress (she's made several wedding dresses before) which is sweet of her - not sure if I'll take her up on that but it is still a very nice gesture. And she's also said that this is our wedding and she doesn't want to be a "butt-insky" FMIL (lol)

Also my family has reacted great so far with both the engagement as well as the DW idea - most of them seem pretty excited about it.

Thanks for being here for me thus far, and I'm sure you'll be there for me even more as I jump into the planning phase and go through the inevitable ups and downs of DW planning! grouphug.gif

Oh, btw we have been telling people Summer of '09, a semi-long engagement but it gives us and those going plenty of time to plan and save.
what a great engagement story Jamie, congratulations once again! WOOHOOO let the planning begin... if you haven't started already :)

I kept going back and forth. Before dinner I thought "this is it!" then when I saw the "Happy birthday" note on the bouquet I thought "ok, maybe this is not it". I knew it was it when desert was over and he said he needed to think about what to do next... wink.gif
