Our love story: The proposal

It was Friday, June 5th, 2009 and we were planning to have "date night". Usually Allan plans date night and I don't really have any idea what the plan is. Well, this particular Friday was the same except I was very moody and sensitive, lol, go figure. At work he had roses delivered to me, 11 beautiful red roses. Yes, 11, I think his friend who delivered them took one to give to some girl at work, lol. I know who counts, right- well I do, haha.

After work we went down the street to start our evening at a place called Stats. This is the place Allan and I had our second after work hang out and the first time we felt sparks was here as well. We went to the roofop and had a couple of drinks and he gave me a gift. It was a charm bracelet with a little apple on it. I thought awww ok, this is sweet, I already have a charm bracelet, but thank you honey. Yes, I was being quite the biatch... I know! But really, the bracelet was beautiful and charm was too cute, for those of you who don't know, we always call eachother the "apple of our eye". So next, we went to dinner at this yummy restaurant called Chow Baby. This is where we had our first official date! He didn't give me anything here, we just had a nice dinner and left for our next destination....Ten Pin Alley- an upscale bowling alley/bar located in Atlanta. This was our second destination on our first date and the place where I got his car towed (haha, yes, I got his car towed on our first date, it was an accident!). Here he gave me another charm for my new bracelet. It was a C. I thought, ok, this is cute...BOTH our last names started with C, so I wasn't suspicious yet, but I do remember telling him "Wow, this is really romantic going on all of our firsts, you should have saved this idea for when you propose". So after this, we left and headed towards home. I was still in a bad mood, so we got home and I went upstairs to lay down. On my way up he asked me to come outside for a minute, I was being mean and was like "no, no, I am just going to go lay down". He asked me a few more times and so I finally went. When I got out there he told me to close my eyes and he started telling me how much he loved me and how much I meant to him...this is when I knew and I got sooo nervous and anxious that I don't even remember what he was saying, he said he had 1 more charm and he wanted me to guess what it was by feeling it. I guessed a dog bone! hahaha, it was a little bar and engraved on it was W.Y.M.M. soon as I saw it, I knew! I started smiling from ear to ear and crying and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him....of course I said yes. So, we ended up getting engaged under the stars on the back patio, exactly like the evening we shared our first kiss! It was perfect in every way and I will never ever forget it! Love you pumpkin!
