Weekend recap

by statia on August 22, 2004

Thank you to everyone from both me and the meester on the congratulations and well wishes. We’re so very happy and on cloud nine right now. You can see more pictures of the ring over there. It was pretty late last night when we got in, so we only snapped a few pictures under the kitchen lights. It didn’t really do much justice to the ring. Both he and his seester did a stellar job.

A quick story on the proposal. As you well know, my day was pretty action packed yesterday. We woke up, had a nice breakfast, drove out to Napa, where I was pampered the entire day. I had a nice massage, facial, manicure and pedicure. That took up most of the day, so by the time we got back, I barely had enough time to shower, as the meester was insistent that we leave the house at 7:30, even though our reservations were for 8:45. Because we were running late, he told me that he had only wanted to leave so that we could see the sunset. His plan was to take me to the very place I saw my first ocean sunset. We missed the sunset, but we went to the beach anyway. We sat down, and just talked about the day. I told him how he had made me feel like a fairy tale princess, and that it was the best day ever. He told me that he still had one more present to give me, and pulled out a little black box. I don’t know that it took me more than .00001 seconds to say yes. It was definitely the perfect end to a very perfect day. I haven’t had time to go through all of my pictures, but here are some from the weekend. I’m off to bed.

Congrats again! Reminds me of the time when Mr. Zed was a romantic….*Sigh* He still thinks he is though, so we won’t blow it for him.

Congratulations on joining the world of the engaged girls!! Your ring looks very similar to mine, except mine are three round cut diamonds. I am so, so happy for you!!! Yay!!!!

Wow, that’s like a 9.8 out of 10 for a proposal. Would have been a perfect 10 if you’d have caught the sunset, but then again your fella gets extra points for keeping a cool head despite having missed it. That’s about the nicest proposal I’ve ever heard of.

wait, you got engaged and you saw the giant ball of string on the same day? that’s like, heaven!

only a trip to “the mystery spot” would make it perfect.

It’s official: You are the blogger I am most jealous of, for sure. I’ve been reading here for about 6 months now, following along the progress of the decision to move, the move itself, and now this…you guys are my relationship idols. (With Joelle and Mikey running close behind, of course…but you win, because you moved across country, dammit.)
