Well, I can be taken off the list!! My Fiance took me up to this amazing restaurant on top of a mountain in Alaska where you can see seven glaciers from the windows. The mountains we were in are big skiing/snowboarding mountains and mean a lot to my Fiance because he has been all over those mountains when he was an avid snowboarder. We had to take a cable car up to the restaurant. We had a delicious, super expensive dinner and a bottle of wine. I was kinda expecting it, but when dessert came around and no sign of a proposal I was curious. Plus I hadn’t seen anywhere he could hide a ring box.
Well, right before dessert showed up he got down on one knee and starting getting choked up, apparently he had a little speech planned but was too emotional to get it out so he kept it simple. Which is fine because if he had done a speech I would have cried even more than i was already! I obviously said yes! The ring is absolutely perfect and fit perfectly as well, my little size 2.5!
The rest of the weekend was fantastic, we set up a little tent in probably the most gorgeous campground I have ever seen (unfortunately those pics are still on my camera) then went to this little fishing village and saw a glacier and went fishing off the bay (FI is obsessed with fishing) and caught our own salmon!
It was amazing, and I am absolutely ecstatic about everything!! I can’t wait to officially start planning!
Here is some ring porn, taken with my camera phone. This is a .75 and it looks MASSIVE on me, haha. Sorry for the gigantic pics.

As to where in Alaska – Fiance lives in Anchorage (he is originally from Fairbanks), proposal was at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, and the rest of the weekend we spent in Seward. 🙂 When I can get the pics off my camera and on to FI’s computer I will post some more pics.
