    I thought a few of you might find it amusing, so I am sharing my proposal story. My fiance went ring shopping without me and apparently became very overwhelmed. Eventually he asked me to go shopping with him and we found the perfect ring - one that we both love. While the sales lady was ringing up the purchase, my man turns towards me (we are sitting in chairs) and says, "So, will you marry me?". To which I respond, "I am not getting engaged in a jewelry store!" We had a long weekend trip to NYC planned for the following weekend, so I told him he had to wait until then to ask me so I could have a "story". We get to NYC and take the subway to Grand Central station (with our bags) so we get head up to the street and walk to the hotel. While we are in Grand Central, he asks me if I know where the bathroom is. So I start looking around and when I turn back to him, he is on one knee. He then asks me to marry him and I say "Of course!... now get up!" as there were people around staring and I can be a shy person. I then have to tell him that he is not allowed to post our new status on Facebook until AFTER I have called my mother and sister. For the rest of the weekend in NYC - I would pull my fiance aside and say "You have to ask me again". He would then pull me close (and not down on his knee - so no one around us knew what was going on) and, with real feeling in his eyes, ask me to marry him. So I get to say that I got proposed to in Grand Central, on the Brooklyn Bridge, at a Broadway show, on top of the Empire State Building, at the Statue of Liberty, and in Central Park. I guess I got my story :-)

              When I tell the story to friends about his attempted proposal in the jewelry store, he always replies with "Well you ruined the surprise factor..". To which I reply "I don't remember inviting myself to go ring shopping" (his first attempts by himself were on the sly).
