I'm Engaged

I asked Melissa to marry me Friday night, on our 2nd anniversery.

I told her I had a work event we needed to attend and she needed to dress nicely. She complied without complaint, even though she thought I either forgot our anniversery or double-booked it. I hustled her out the door and on the way I declared I needed some chai to wake me up and we stopped by Fireside.

Two years prior we had our first date and it started there. After getting our chai we headed downtown. I abruptly pulled over and we went down to the waterfront (which was where we spent the remainder of our first date). We walked along the pier and down to the bench where we first cuddled. I asked her there, at the same location where I made her twitterpated that first night. She said yes.

Melissa will post a photo of the ring at some point, I'm sure.

Afterwards we headed over to PCG where my father pulled some strings with the general manager to get us reserved window seats. During the dinner rush on friday night, that was somewhat of a herculean feat and I owe him. We had a wonderful dinner and went home.

The next morning we headed out to the coast and stayed at a resort in Cannon Beach. It was lovely... well the hotel was lovely. The beach was inhabitable because it was heavily snowing and hailing! In March! So we spent most of it inside. Hehe! (Funny side note, I offered Melissa the choice between the mountain or the beach... Due to weather we kind of got both!)

So now things are real we've started planning and are figuring out things like locations, dates, and the like. We're thinking that we'll do it in May of 2010.

So there you have it. ;)
