I am brand new to the board, but have been oogling at the many lovely photos of rings and dresses posted by you lovely bees. I wanted to wait until being engaged to post.
My boyfriend (now fiance, feels so strange saying so!)& I went on a 7 night vacation to Cancun, Mexico over my breakweek at school following exams. We picked the ring out together late last winter, and he had just finished paying off the ring and we had it sized towards the end of summer. I was honestly hoping it was coming, but I had thought he might have waited until Christmas Eve because he loves the season.
I am still gushing over how beautiul my ring is, so here are some photos to share! They were all taken by my “fiance.” Heh. This past Monday (Nov 19) we took a day trip over to a nearby island to do a dolphin swim (one of my life long dreams).After the ferry ride home, he took me out to dinner to a fancy seafood resturant on the lagoon, which was beautiful, and we even saw a crocodile in the lagoon! Afterwards we came back to our hotel room and sat on the balcony, and I think I kind of ruined it for him by wanting to go to bed… Instead he came over and pulled out the ring box, we both had tears in our eyes!

@doubl3helix: We loved the hotel too! Was an amazing holiday. Which restaurant did you go to on the lagoon? We went to Harrys and Freds, Harrys was amazing and SO said that it was the kind of place he would propose, Freds gave me food poisoning 🙁

@kittykat6279: We went to Captain’s Cove. I read reviews on Tripadvisor, and really wanted to go there and to Savio’s Bistro. Captain’s was AMAZING and I would totally recommend it! Funny enough, we did not have any GI issues while we were there, very lucky!
