- Wedding: June 2016 - Vineyard & Winery
Fellow bees, I now have a wedding to plan!
Last night, he popped the question and I couldn’t be happier !! We had plans to go see Raiders of the Lost Ark in our local park on a huge screen. I had a feeling something was up, as he was running around ALL day…he bought a picnic baset and pimped it out so that when you open the lid, lights come on. He bought a new shirt. He bought a very expensive white wine and the finest cheeses. Cherries, dried cranberries, walnuts with honey, a crust of bread – it was perfect!! Also, he was sweating bullets all day…LOL
But still, I didn’t think it would be the engagement- he’s prone to do romantic things and he has very good taste. As we’re watching the movie, I reach into the picnic basket and pull out a little cracker jack box. I was excited b/c I hadn’t had it in years and who doesn’t love the surprise prize inside?? So I’m like, “hey, can I open this?” He looked a little funny but said “Sure”. I open the box and the prize is right on top…I’m thinking SCORE! I don’t have to dig for it! I just wanted the prize as I can’t stand peanuts. I briefly thought to ask if he wanted to open the prize but then thought, “nah, he won’t care”. So I open the little packet and this gorgeous ring pops out!! Not only that, but he had removed the cracker jack peanuts and popcorn and refilled with delicious caramel corn from a little shop- since he knows I don’t like peanuts…soooo sweet and thoughtful 🙂
Then he said some really lovely things and asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES and cried a little bit. Such a sweet and funny surprise!
