After months of reading everyones posts on here my boyfriend of 3 years (or fiance I can now say) popped the question this past Tuesday night!!! His weekend days off are Tuesdays and Wednesdays because he is in sales therefore he works weekends because that is their busy time! He suprised me with a weekend getaway on Tuesday morning to Salish Lodge at Snoqualmie Falls here in WA State. Salish Lodge is a very relaxing, spa environment that is just absolutely beautiful. He had our room set up with rose petals all over the bed, champagne, and a very romantic jacuzzi. It had a view of the falls and a beautiful crackling fireplace. The day went PERFECT- we checking in, checked out our room, and went straight to the mineral pools for a few hours. We then went into the steamroom, and headed back to the room to shower and clean up. After showering, we walked around the lodge and went to the view points outside. He had dinner reservations at the Lodges beautiful restaurant and we got seated right next to the window overlooking the falls 🙂 We had a delicious steak dinner with crab bisque and then some yummy dessert. After dinner we were so exhausted (it was only 9:30) and headed back to the room where we….hung out in bed for awhile 🙂 ) then he said he was going to get the jets going in the jacuzzi and that I couldnt come in until it was ready (I wasn’t suspecting anything!) So eventually he said “come on in sweetie” and I came in and there were candles lit everywhere with rose petals floating in the jacuzzi! I was so excited 🙂 We got in and this is where it gets funny- everything up until now had been perfect. We are in the jacuzzi and I suddenly get really hot and a little bit overheated from the hot water. I say “I think I might get out the water is a little hot for me right now” and he goes “oh no! Dont do that, come on let me get some colder water going and thatll cool you down” and we go back and forth for about a minute and finally I start to cool down and he goes “Do you love me?” I say “of course I do, you know I do” and he goes “are you absolutely sure?” and I say “yes!! I love you more than anything!” and then he goes “Do you love me enough to marry me? Will you marry me?” and he takes the ring out from behind the curtain 🙂 it was all such a blur, all I remember is starting to cry like a little baby and we hugged for a few minutes crying before I actually looked at the ring 🙂 and then he said “is that a yes?” and I said “of course its a yes!” It was so much more than I ever could’ve asked for. And the awesome part was that I wasnt expecting it! He completely suprised me! I knew it was coming soon but I wasnt expecting it that night! We stayed up for hours talking, I was so excited I couldnt fall asleep 🙂 We had a delicious smoked salmon skillet breakfast the next morning and packed up and came home and suprised my parents and they made us a delicious dinner to celebrate and then we spent the night making some wedding plans 🙂 We are hoping to get married either end of 2014 or beginning of 2015 in Hawaii! So sorry for the novel. But here are some pictures including my 1 ct Princess cut Solitaire which is what I always wanted 🙂 I hope everyone is having a great day!
