Pre Christmas Surprise

Recommended Posts

My FI and I had been planning to get married for sometime before he actually proposed. He had been telling me for awhile that I would have to wait until Feb/Mar since the fall. We were going to see my family in the midwest for Christmas so we had decided that we would have "our" Christmas on Dec 20. He said that we should do something special on that evening before we open gifts, perhaps go to the restaurant we went to on our first date 3yrs ago, I thought it was a great idea.


We had gone snowboarding a couple days before and we had talked about remembering when being kids, playing out side and being so cold then coming inside and having your mom make hot chocolate and snuggling under a blanket. At dinner he thought we should go for a walk in Stanley Park and get all cold and come home and make hot chocolate. I'm thinking he's crazy - it's windy, cold and possibly the rain is going to wreck the hour's work I spent on straightening my hair. He pipes up "I brought an umbella" - I laugh and tell him's thought of everything except for the stiletto's I'm wearing but I agree. Although, the entire night I'm thinking that it would be the perfect night to propose but he had been telling me that it would be at least a few months out I was pretty positive it wasn't happening.


We drive to the park and find a clearing where we had a great view of Lionsgate Bridge and West Van - the wind is blowing all the hair in my face, I'm trying to keep balance in my stilettos on the grass and all of a sudden he says "I have a rock in my shoe" and I'm wondering why he's telling me that so I just say "I guess you should deal with it then". I'm trying to get my hair out of my face and he's still on his knees and I can't figure out what he's doing as it was SO dark. He calls my name and I turn to him and he's on his knee with an open ring box and asks me to marry him (It is SO dark that I think it's just a box - like in that scene in Knocked Up when Seth Rogen's character is sort of proposing to Catherine Heigl's character by saying "this box is a promise....") I don't really remember what happened next but apparently I was so suprised that I kept stepping back and he had to reach out and grab me as we were on a downwards slope and apparently I faltered a bit and if he didn't catch me, I would have landed in the ocean! He finally asks for my answer and I told him "of course" then he told me there's a ring too! It was pretty surreal and amazing


It turns out he had been carrying the ring and the box around all night in his sock just praying that it wouldn't fall out!!!!

    • 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?
