San Diego (long awaited) Proposal :-)

Recommended Posts

We went to San Diego in April 2010 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed at Hilton San Diego Bay, and had an awesome view of the bay and downtown from our room.


It was a weekend full of adventures and good food. We had breakfast at Green Flash on Mission Beach, which reminded us a lot of our favorite place in Austin, except for the beachfront view! We went hiking at Torrey Pines State Park. The weather was absolutely perfect and the scenery there was breathtaking. We also visited the zoo while we were in San Diego. Our favorite animals were the Chimpanzees and the Orangutans. They were hilarious.


The last day, we toured the USS Midway. We took the bridge tour and learned all about the history and crew, got to see the admiral's living quarters. It was cool!


After the tour we were running short on time, and needed to get to the airport to catch our flight. But, Darren wanted to take one more picture by a large sculpture of a sailor kissing his girl, which was right next to the aircraft carrier. We drove around and got parked, and got out of the car. As we approached the statue Darren asked a girl, who was with a friend, to take our picture. We attempted to mimick the pose that the statue was representing, then, Darren took both of my hands, and said he'd had the perfect weekend with me, and couldn't have imagined sharing it with anyone else. Then he said he couldn't imagine spending his life with anyone else. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the best day of my life. bunny_4.gif

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
