He made everyone cancel our dinner plans ;)

Recommended Posts



I have been taking cooking classes and decided to throw my first 5-course dinner party. I was SO bummed when everyone started canceling at the last minute on me! Ryan said, "Well, since everyone canceled, why don't we get that photo of the two of us in front of the Golden Gate bridge for Adam and Laura's wedding slide show?" (his brother was getting married later that month and requested this particular photo).


When we got there, we wandered around looking for his brother who was supposedly already there waiting for us with the camera. Suddenly, he got down on one knee and said, "I have a confession to make. Adam never asked for this photo. I love you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you." He held out the most gorgeous ring and I got down on the sand with him and we hugged, kissed and laughed.


He then ran back to the car and brought out a basket of champagne, cheese and crackers. We had some random folks on the beach take photos. Then we rushed back to our place to change for dinner reservations at Fleur de Lis!


He apparently had these reservations for months, so when I scheduled a dinner party, it was one more obstacle in his way! I love that it was a random Wednesday night, and the location was perfect for us! He said he chose it so we can go back each year on our anniversary and it will never change and always be available.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
