Thread: Engaged!!

    Love Engaged!!

    We have been together for almost 3 years in November!!
    Db (at the time) came home on his first leave since basic on July 23 '07. We did the family thing, driving all over the east coast to visit friends and family for the week. On Tuesday the 31st, he tells me that we has a special vacation getaway planned just for the two of us. No cell phones, no computers, no ships, no one. I was amazed because usually he can't keep secrets, let alone plan and organize something like a trip alone! He tells me to pack and get in the car and just go with it. So, I do!
    We end up in Hilton Head, my favorite place to vacation... Its so peaceful and relaxing. We unload everything into the hotel and I am told to get ready to go out to a really nice dinner. I told him, like I do all the time, that I am perfect with a happy meal, as long as he is with me. But he demands we go somewhere elegant because he hasnt been home to treat me the way he wants.
    So black dress, and tie, we go to Aqua. A restaurant where there are cascading rock waterfalls throughout the inside, white tablecloths, soft music playing, and a wine list longer than a novel. We had reservations already and were escorted to our table on the second floor. Where we were, the whole wall was a glass window that overlooked the ocean. I was in awe, I love the ocean.
    The food was great, expensive, and we just talked about everything. Before you know it, desert was to be ordered and I thought I couldn't eat another thing! Db convinced me to get it anway, that "money tonight wasn't an object" and we would take it home to snack on later. I ordered a chocolate mousse cake.
    Then the waiter came out with our desert. With it, he set down two champagne flutes and my chocolate mousse cake in front of me. It all seems slow motion but I remember making the comment "Baby, look, there are pretty flowers on top of my desert.. I think that is mine!" I was just so wrapped up in the moment with the beach, flowers, him home and just thought that because it was such an upscale restaurant that they put flowers on everyone's desert.
    Then, all at the same time I realized there was a mass gathering behind the bar looking at me, Db was moving from his chair to his knee and taking my hand and my jaw then seemed like it slammed into the floor when I realized there was a diamond sparkling around the stem of the flowers on top of my cake!
    It was like a movie in slow motion. My mouth was open the whole time he was getting down and my eyes were huge. I think I might have said, "Oh my god.." in shrills and shrieks and he then said, "Baby, will you marry me?" Of course I cried, what girl wouldn't? I was so happy and I don't think I have yet to stop glowing! It took me a couple seconds to realize what was going on and snap back into it and then I said "Yes!!" I hugged him so tight and the staff started clapping.
    It was perfect, the manager and all the waiters knew so they had worked it all out. The hostess had gone down to the beach to get the flowers. And I knew Df must have been busting at the seems all through dinner. But I had no idea!
    I had one bite of my cake and then we went and had a romantic, just the two of us, walk on the beach until it got dark! And then I had to start the phone calls to tell everyone haha...

    **Now what do I do?!?! lol**
