Ok so Fiance and I have been together many years and have 2 twin children. We clearly were in total agreement about marriage so the proposal never happened but planning was in full swing. Well Fiance asked today if I could leave early from work and pick up the kids from daycare. He had a birthday surprise for me. We met up at my favorite mexican restaurant and had me cracking up since I walked in. I’m turning 35 but we say every year I’m 27. So this is what i saw at the table.
As we began eating he says close your eyes, I have a surprise for you. Then all of a sudden I hear a 5 man mariachi group playing music and approaching me. I was serenaded by 6 love songs and finally with a happy birthday song. Then all of a sudden, the waitress brings out my favorite cake from a local baker. Fiance had them put my nickname on it. Lol
Soon after we are done, Fiance decides to take us all to the first spot we ever met. Before I knew it, he read a letter he wrote for me and was down on one knee. I was covered in tears of joy. I will NEVER forget how he pulled off my dream proposal. Crazy how I never shared my thoughts with him but he exceeded it in every way. I’m on cloud 9 right now. Just had to share my joy for today.

Congrats! But I’m so confused… I remember you posting about your ring upgrade (which I love). So you only just got proposed to now? Either way it’s very sweet! 🙂

Yes you are correct. We were in total agreement and didn’t have a proposal. He was secretly planning a whole birthday surprise to propose because he felt he truly owed that to me and wanted to do it when I least expected it to. It’s actually funny because he wanted the kids to hold the ring, while he read his letter down on one knee. Problem was that he was concerned if they knew in advance, they would blow his cover. It was absolutely intimate and exactly where it should’ve always been done. I’m still in shock.
Here’s a picture of the proposal site. Sorry I blocked faces to protect the privacy of our children. You get the idea though.
