I’ve made it pretty darn easy for my BF. I told him about dream proposals A and B. My parents LOVE him. I had a photo of the ring as my wallpaper on my computer forever. Hell he even has the ring. All he has to do is propose! I’ve given him plenty of opportunities, both before we went and got the ring together (in case he had bought the ring and just didn’t tell me) and since the jeweler informed us that the ring is ready. 

Dream proposal A = proposal on the jumbotron of mine and BF’s fave football team. I don’t really want to wait until June when football season starts again. Plus June is just the pre-season game, then we have a ton of away games in the hopes that our team can get their new stadium built. While it would be super cool to have the first proposal at the new stadium, thats looking like it will be in August or possibly September. I dont think I could wait that long!!!

Dream proposal B = Proposal at the happiest place on earth. Not Disney, btw, but the spa, and not just any spa, but this spa where we live called Ten Spa. Its on the top floor of this gorgeous old hotel. Its supposed to be one of the best spas in Canada if not North America. That place is so wonderful that if someone told me thats what heaven is like, I would die right then and there. I suggested to BF that we could go there for their spa and yoga retreat. Its basically an overnight stay where you get to do hamam at the spa and yoga and then if you stay Saturday night you get their amazing Sunday brunch.

Ive also suggested to the BF that we could do a weekend getaway to his parents gorgeous cabin or something. But nothing has happened.

I can honestly say that there is not a single event coming any time in the near future where I think BF would propose. Im kinda bummed about it. BF btw, isnt one to do a big suprise. He would never just randomly take me somewhere without telling me, hes too practical and too much of a planner. Also, hes a worst case scenario type person and would be freaking out about all the things that could go wrong.

@shinythingsrule:  Hamam is a turkish bath. http://www.tenspa.ca/hamam.cfm I haven’t done it yet, but it sounds nice. While you’re there check out the other wonderful stuff they do at that spa.

I had their body coccoon once. OMG. I did the Cleopatra milk and honey coccoon and they basically put a thick layer of warm lotion on your skin then fold you in a sheet, then fold you in like a waterbed bladder, then fill the thing with warm water. It’s kind of like you’re floating, but it’s dry. Then they rock you in the coccoon and give you a mini facial, a scalp massage and a foot massage. I fell asleep. When they woke me up, I was all “NOOOOOOOOO! Leave me here!”

BF actually bought me a whole package for me four our 2 year anniversary present. I got a body scrub before the wrap, a massage after the wrap, then the hot cream manicure and signature pedicure.

They do dry manis and pedis there, and you get put in like a lay-z-boy crossed with a dentist chair. They also cover you with a wee down duvet while they’re doing your nails. Oh and they recommend you get there like 1/2 hour early (I usually go an hour early) because they have a steam room and a eucalyptus and mint rain mist shower. They give you a big fluffy robe to wear. Gah, it’s just amazing. I wish I could go there all the time!

Oh and PS? Any time during that whole spa package would have been a good time for BF to show up and propose. He told me after that he did go out looking at rings and had one picked out. But like less than a week later, before he went back to the store to buy it I had to open my big fat mouth and say that I wanted a say in the ring. We pretty much got the ring he had picked out, we just went with a custom jeweler who gave us the same setting, basically, but with a bigger, better diamond, for the same price as the store where BF was going to buy the ring.

Also, I don’t know what was up with the formating of my earlier post. My computer is being weird…
