@anahappilyeverafter:  congratulations on your soon to be engagement!

My Darling Husband and I are also also very active people. He popped the question on a hike at a scenic outlook. Since you are both active people I think incorporating that would be a wonderful idea. The picnic is also a good idea! Whatever you do I’m sure your lady will be beyond happy!

Do you have a local winery??? I was just lloking on line, this morning. They have places with train rides to winerys, you can have a picnic lunch there… maybe talk to ur local winery, and see if you could stage a “tour” and have a place set up wih a picnic area for the two of you???

I’m so excited for you both!  I think the picnic idea is fabulous because the weather is so nice now.  I don’t think picnic food tends to be overly gourmet but I think some nice sandwiches would be good.  Maybe chocolate dipped strawberries (get them nice and cold before you go outside so the chocolate won’t be a mess).  Get a nice bottle of wine…pack some nice glasses.  Maybe you could accidently forget something in the car and ask her if she could go grab it.  Tell her you’ll set up the food…and when she goes to fetch whatever put the ring, in its box, sitting on her plate instead of her sandwich.  Then ask!  ^_^  Or you could do it on a nice hike w/a picnic lunch planned for after.  I love the idea of you doing it outside because it’s so pretty out!

I have nothing constructive to add, as far as advice/ideas go, but the romantic picnic idea sounds so sweet!

I think the picnic idea sounds great! Although I’d probably have a look at some weekend away cottages. That way, you can have a lovely warm meal and have a great engagement weekend away! Good Luck ^.^

Don’t worry about hot food for a picnic; all you really need is some good-quality cheese, some nice charcuterie/meats like parma ham and salame, a bottle of wine and some really good bread. Don’t overthink it!  If it fits with your style (which I’m guessing it does since you already had the idea) it will end up being perfectly comfortable, intimate and romantic.

@anahappilyeverafter:  Congratulations on making the decision to propose.  I sincerely wish you the best of luck.

I think the picnic idea is really awesome!  I wouldn’t go too crazy over the food, but I can understand your concern.  =) Pick out her favorite sweet (or salty) snack!  Bring a bottle of wine or champagne.  Whatever fits the two of you best!

Good luck to you and I hope to hear a recap of your proposal soon!  Very exciting.

Congrats! Great idea disguising the proposal by doing it near her b’day. My guy proposed the night before my b’day, he organized an amazing night for us with so many surprises, all under the pretense it was for my b’day, it was fantastic! πŸ™‚

Congrats on your upcoming engagement!  I know this is not exactly what you’re looking for, but this is what I always said I would do if I were ever the one to propose:

I would carry the ring with me one weekend that we were out and about on the town or away for something we had planned.  Fiance always takes my breath away in those moments that are least expected and I find myself saying, “My God, I love this man.  I want to spend the rest of my life with him.”  In one of those moments, THAT’s when I would propose!  It would be so easy to tell him why I love him in that moment and what he does to make me happy. It would be so natural for me in that moment.

Any way you do it will be wonderful!!  Best wishes!

sorry, I’m a bit lost. You are going to wait until next January?!

If I were you, already thinking and planning it, there’s no WAY I could wait that long, haha…

all I wanted to say was don’t worry about going overboard. My gf proposed to me by singing me an original song that she had written for the occasion, in our bedroom, on a Saturday morning. It was perfect. Even without the song it would have been one of the most special days of my life, because I was being proposed to!

i guess what I’m saying is, don’t overthink it too much. congrats and good luck πŸ™‚
