My fiance and I have been together 3 years and have been very happy together. However, we had only mentioned getting married a few times and I haven't been in a hurry since we are both concentrating on our careers. Boy was I in for the surprise of a lifetime! I was in TX for a business trip. It was a Friday and I was planning on flying home early because the training was ending early. My sister called me and said that she needed me to pick up my brother in law from the airport that night and I couldn't change my flight. I was ticked off, but agreed. When I arrived back in Baltimore, I kept calling my brother in law's phone but he wouldn't answer. Finally he sent me a text saying he was waiting for me in baggage claim. I walk into that area and see a random guy in a suit holding a sign with my name on it. I have a very common name, so I figured it was for someone else. I kept looking for my brother in law, but then my boyfriend at the time, Jerry, came out of nowhere dressed in a suit and tie and gave me a big hug! Right there in the middle of the airport he gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him! There were people everywhere and they all stopped dead and kind of let out a collective gasp! I of course said yes (after perhaps a little too long of a hesitation, but I really wanted to think about it!). I then found out that they guy in the suit was a limo driver waiting with the car outside.
Now the adventure begins! I assumed the limo would be taking us home, but boy was I wrong! He took us to a fancy hotel where he had a suite on the top floor reserved that had one of my favorite dresses waiting. There was also champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Here's the best part: he had taken every pair of black heels I had and put them in the closet at the hotel because he wasn't sure which pair I would want to wear! He gave me an hour to get showered and ready to go and then took me to Ruth's Chris steakhouse where I had always wanted to go but had never been. We had the limo for the night and went dancing later. It was a wonderful night and I will never forget it!
