My "not on a holiday" Christmas Eve proposal! :)

Recommended Posts

My fiance proposed on December 24, 2009...and boy was I surprised!  He had told me early on in our relationship that when he proposed, it would NOT be on a holiday - he wanted it to be a day that was just for us and a day that I would not be expecting it.  Fast forward to Christmas Eve of 2009...


We wwork night shift, and had gotten up early because we were having all of my family over for dinner. Unbeknownst to me, Jed was preparing for his proposal while I was in the shower. When I got out of the shower, I threw on my robe and heard Jed say "hey, will you come in here for a minute?". I walked into our bedroom to find Jed down on one knee!  He was in a dress shirt and tie, and had "our" song playing in the background. On our bed sat the ring, and he had "Will You Marry Me" spelled out on the bed with my favorite truffles.  I started crying before he ever spoke a word!  He gave a short but very sweet and sincere proposal speech, and I couldn't wait to say yes!  I was so busy crying, I didn't even realize that the truffles spelled out "Will you marry me" until he showed me the pictures afterward. :)   LOL  


Once I finally calmed down, I asked him what happened to the whole notion of "not on a holiday". It turned out that it just worked out that he found the right diamond a little over a week before Christmas, and he asked how fast they could have it mounted into the setting and they told him it would be ready by the 22nd or 23rd. He went to pick it up on the 23rd, and they told him it wouldn't be ready until the 24th. He considered waiting until after Christmas, but decided he couldn't wait that long - and besides, "Christmas Eve isn't officially a holiday!"...lol. I was so surprised by it all but I don't think I've ever been as happy as I was that day!

    • 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
