Hey there! Sorry for the delay. It has been a crazy week!
So, as many of you know, I was over this waiting game. I thought I was getting a ring when my Boyfriend or Best Friend took me to a surprise concert and I didn’t. I left all expectation in NY when we went on vacation.
On October 5th, the Boyfriend or Best Friend planned a date night for us. As I was getting dressed, I looked at my shoes and asked if we could please get a cab. Walking around in 4 inch heels was not the way to begin our night. The Boyfriend or Best Friend told me he had everything under control. And he did! Once we went to the lobby, there was a black limo waiting for us. The Driver gave us a tour of Vegas. We had our picture taken at the Las Vegas sign and watched the water show at the Bellagio. After a few stops, we went to The Paris hotel and had dinner at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. We had the best table in the restaurant!!!!!!!!!
The view was amazing! I spent 90 minutes watching the beautiful water show, looking at the view of Vegas and dining on amazing French cuisine. The Boyfriend or Best Friend went all out- Dozen red roses at the table, personalized menus with our names, etc.
The waiter then comes out and announces that before dessert, the chef wanted to send out something special. The waiter then places a red plate with our names written in gold, a ring box in the shape of the Eiffel Tower with roses and the ring with a sign that read, “Marry me”
I began to cry and the Boyfriend or Best Friend got down on his knee and asked if I would marry him. A photographer began to snap pictures. I eventually said yes.
Upon arrival back to the hotel, I opened the door to our suite and found roses and candles EVERYWHERE. I followed them into the bathroom where he had Champagne and a warm bath. In the tub were 5 beautiful floating candles for every year we have been dating!
He told me that he purchased the ring back in February. I had no idea!
