The Proposal

Kenny and I spent the night at my brother's house, and when I woke up the next morning, he wasn't there. Next to the bed was a note telling me to go downstairs and press play on the VCR. My heart skipped a beat as emotions ran through my whole body! It was a video of Kenny telling me that 'Tonight is the night' (our favorite song!) and that I had one hour to get ready and have breakfast. After getting ready, I went out to the car where I found my next message! It was directions to the Eden Prarie mall and $100 to buy a formal dress! SWEET. I was told I had one hour to find the dress (that was stressful!) and to be back at the car by 11:15. I found a pretty white dress, nice jewelery, and the perfect shoes...and I still had money left over, mom should be proud! I got to the car right on time and found McDonalds money for lunch (my favorite place!) and a gift certificate to a day spa. I ate lunch quickly, and found myself wishing I could be eating lunch with Kenny! My time at the spa was wonderful I had a massage, a manicure, a facial, and my hair done. Every time one of the ladies told me to relax, I laughed...not possible! After being pampered all day I found my next message telling me to put on my dress and drive to his mom's house. The drive there seemed to take forever! When I got there, he was waiting for me all dressed up with a rose and a sweet kiss! We got in his dad's BMW 740i (SWEET CAR!) and headed off on our next adventure. He handed me a gift, and I couldn't help but wonder how he managed to pull all of this off! It was a picture album filled with pictures from when we were young. The front cover had a picture of us when we first met and the date of our anniversary, April 22 2000. Under that was July 5, 2003 and a spot for us to put a picture of us getting engaged. I melted! He drove us to a beautiful garden on Lake Minnetonka where we walked around holding hands looking at all the beautiful flowers. He took me to a bench overlooking the lake where we cuddled for a while and talked about our dreams. Then he pulled me up, grabbed my hand, and got down on one knee! He told me how much he loved me and that our lives will be wonerful together and asked "WILL YOU MARRY ME?" I was amazed by how perfect the ring looked and before I said yes, I said "It's so beautiful"! He asked me for my answer and I said YES!!!! We hugged and kissed for a long time, I couldn't believe how right this felt! We took some pictures and walked through the gardens holding hands, this time we were engaged! He told me he had reservations for us at Cincaids but I talked him into Giani's instead! We had a wonderful dinner and started making phonecalls! After dinner he took me to our final destination...the EXECUTIVE SUITE at the Embassy Suite Hotel! It was AWESOME. We had 2 tv's and 2 showers! He had roses waiting for me when we walked in along with my favorite snacks and a personalized wedding planner. We relaxed for a while then went out for a movie. It was the perfect day, and I can't imagine being happier! He thought of everything, I'm the luckiest girl in the world! I love you Kenny
