Default Friday Proposal Thread!

Heather: Welcome back!!! We haven't seen you in awhile!!! Stick around

Jen: I love your snow angel proposal! How cool

My proposal. I came home two days before X-mas and DH had red roses and candles all the way down the hallway leading to the bathroom. In the bathroom were tons of candles lit, roses on the toilet seat neatly arranged and a bath drawn with bubbles, pink & red rose petals and carnations ~ all in the water. He told me to relax in a bath and brought me a glass of wine. He was on the phone and I could tell something was wrong - he wouldn't tell me what though. Afterwards he took me to dinner at Palamino in Downtown Denver. The meal was incredible! Then we walked up 16th street mall to a spot where we were going to take a carraige ride! I had been telling him for the 3 1/2 years we were together that I had always wanted to take a carriage ride. The ride was soooo cool. All the X-mas decorations were out and although it was pretty cold it was neat to sit in the carriage and cuddle. Well, he started talking to me and the split second after he said 'Will you marry me' the carriage driver turned around, basically interrupted him and asked us a question. We kind of looked at him in stunned silence. The driver noticed what was going on, got kind of flustered and finished his question. I was so thrown off that I hadn't said anything. Poor hubby was like 'Well?' Of course I said yes! We laugh about it now, but poor DH was so mad at the guy for interrupting it Later I found out he was having trouble with the carriage reservation on the phone and that's what was wrong! I'll never forget that night and it's a blast to tell.

Once again I'm up late and about to head off to bed. *hugs* to all!

Oh, brain fart, can't think of a poll.................

OK, I was wrinting a post and bumped the mouse.... poof the post was gone. How weird is that. Touchy computer.

I got a new cell phone finally. My old one was big and clunky (about 5 years old) so we got a new digital one. Now I can easily carry it on my walks.

Brenda, I remember you telling that story. What could the driver possibly have to say that was so important he had to disturb two love birds??? At least it is something you can remember. Kind of like at me wedding (this was very devastating at the time tho!!)... our DJ was arrested for attempted murder 2 hours before the reception. He never showed up.... an hour and 1/2 after the dance started this guy came in with barely any music... but he was nice and all. He didn't know the guy was arrested, he was just called and begged to come over. We made the best out of it tho. Let me tell you tho, at the time it made me cry and it was very embarassing... Everything else was absolutely PERFECT.. so it was a shame. But we laugh about it now. As far as we know, the guy is still rotting in jail!!!

OK, better get to work. We both have to work this weekend too! YUCK!

Default Hello??

Where is everyone this morning? Usually there's much more activity by now.

Jen: OMG!!! That's pretty scary actually. Glad it ended up working out. I would have been in tears too. The driver wanted to know of we wanted to stay on the street we were on or turn b/c the wind had gotten stronger Can you believe that???

I don't have anything at work for breakfast and I left my money at home *pout pout* I'm in a dangerous hungry place!

Good morning!

Brenda ~ Love your proposal story, its a good one! You too Jen!!

Jen ~ Your DJ story is scary! Oh man!!! Well, it adds color to your wedding memories anyway!

It is quite quiet here today, I thought I would have tons of posts to read thru when I logged on, everyone must be busy at work!!

I am so glad today is Friday, never did find any ambition this week at work, maybe next week!

I have been staying within my points this week, and exercising when I can. DH, the kids, and I are going ATVing again tomorrow, that will be some exercise, and I do hope to get a power walk in tonight after the kids settle down. WI is tomorrow, I am hoping for good things, it has been two weeks since I have weighed in. I really want to get these last few pounds off before my SIL wedding August 11th, but we will see.

I am in the process of planning DH and I's 5 year anniversary trip the beginning of October. We have decided to go to Vegas. So, I am really looking forward to that. I also have my SIL's bridal shower and bachelorette party to plan, as that is July 21st. (Which is my 30th birthday), will you guys still let me post here, even though I will be an old woman??????

Well, better look like I am busy, be back in a bit.....

Default happy friday!

Hi there Jen, Brenda, and Tonya! Hi to the lurkers too

Well my proposal story is kinda funny because it was totally off of the original plan. DH had planned to propose in the park that I met him on our college campus. He had this whole picnic thing and saber arch (military school) planned and I ended up ruining it because I had to work. At the time I had really mean bosses, so they made me work on that Saturday instead of going up to the college. I called DH at 5 pm that saturday and told him that I was still working and I thought he should just stay in college station instead of coming to houston. He kinda sounded nervous and he told me that he was coming anyway. So a couple of hours later I sneaked away from work and met him at my apartment. He said he had gotten paid so he wanted to take me to dinner. We finally found a place that had openings (it was 8 on a saturady night) and went to dinner. It was a great time and we ended up getting free wine and dessert after he proposed. My bosses ended up calling me 8 times the rest of the weekend so I unplugged my phone and turned off my cell. I don't regret it a bit .

Ok that was long...sorry. I am so hung over today. We had a happy hour last night and I had 2 glasses of wine, a light beer, and a shot of Jagermeister. Bad idea. I'll come back once I get some coffee and aspirin.

Kay

WOOOO! I caught up on posts. That was exhausting Well I didn't stay within pts yesterday but I am not concerned b/c I felt in control and just went a bit over pts. I also went biking and paddleboating (I don't think thats a word ) so I probably earned some activity pts. I am just glad to be back on the WWer wagon. Ok I guess I will get to posting.

First I would like to catch up on the polls.
Tues-Tan fr. outside. I just got back fr. Cayman and I tan well, however don't worry I use sunscreen (most of the time) I don't in Michigan but I do when it is tropical sun. I never burn here unless it is an all day outside kinda thing and in that case I wear a bit of sunblock.

Wed- Sinead all the way. I have thick, curly hair and if it was that long I am pretty sure I wouldn't be able to carry it around. Besides Demi Moore pulled it off. Oh man GI Jane didn't that movie inspire you to get buff??? Yikes she kicked butt.

Thurs-NO Plastic Surgery I have deep set eyes and I am afraid that when I am older the skin will hang over but I watched a special on Plastic Surgery and it was frightening. I truly couldn't believe how disgusting it was. I also would love to get the fat sucked out of my thighs. But NO wouldn't do it.

Lolly- Congrats on being under 200!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday! Belated HOpe you had a good one!Ok talk aobut depressing when my sister was pregnant she borrowed my clothes. UH Actually it was all of my stretchy stuff but still. I too have found myself looking in maternity sections on accident. Some of it is so cute.

Lori- how is the stress going. I cant' believe it. Moving, visitors etc. YIKES. Hope things are better

Jen-I had tears after reading about your DJ . I am sorry but that is hysterical. It sounds like a "say anything" in Glamour or Seventeen I can't remember where those are b/c I have no time to read mag.'s anymore. Anyways hope you don't mind that I find that so amusing. I know that I wouldn't have the day of my wedding. BTW please don't stress aboutthe 8Months after baby. My sister's baby is 5 months old and she is doing the same thing. YOu have done well to lose the wt you have. Keep it up.

Brenda- I understand you complainst about working with women however, I work with both and men can be soooo demeaning. I don't know if it is b/c I am a women or b/c I am the youngest in my office by about 15 yrs. but in the past 2 days 2 of them have talked to me like I was 2 yrs old. UHHH I hate that. I honestly felt I was being "scolded". OH well welcome to womanhood I guess. Also I loved your crazy day story with the bra etc. I have those all of the time.

this reminds me of a funny story. My sis has a hot pharmacist and last time her prescription was for a yeast infection and she had to go back this wk to have a wart removed and her prescription said in big letters "FOR WART REMOVAL" she 's like "he is going to think I am the dirtiest person".
Sorry had to share just reminded me of another one of those "say anything's"

Moving on.....

kT bummer that you can't post for a while. Check in for some support.

Stacey- Almost the big day. HOw exciting. I am glad to hear some thing about those Crest strips. I have been wanting to try them. You could be our guineau pig. You should take a before and after pic. Just a suggestion. Hope all is going well.

Kay GOAL GOAL GOAL. I am inspired. Congrats. I love how you are all going to work for WW. I would love to have some young people working at my WW meetings.

Kieri-Congrats on cycling and the definition. That is truly exciting.

Tonya-You are being so good about exercies even in this heat. YOu go girl!

Kim "margarita" I hope you spanish improves slightly I can't talk though. I had two yrs and my grandfather was hispanic and in his last yrs that is all he spoke. He had alzheimers and just spoke in spanish. Looking back it is kind of funny b/c he would talke like we all knew what he was saying. I like my quote too. I stole it from another thread

Sarah- Congrats on Grad school. I cannot wait till I am done. Actually I haven't quite started so It may be a while

Belle- Have lots of fun camping. I am glad you are able to get away for the wknd. Big fun.

Sorry if I missed anyojne. I had 3 days of posts to catch up on.

Becky

Default Quick Question

Stacey: After Jen said something about knowing what you look like, I went back to your web page for the wedding and I'm not finding a picture. Is there one there? Maybe you've posed on the photo thread and I haven't bothered to go check......

I'll read new posts later...gotta run

Brenda... when I opened "the Knot" info about Stacy's wedding, a pic of her and her Soon To Be Hubby was on it. Very nice pic. If you can't get it, maybe I can save it to my computer and e-mail it to you, that is if Stacy doesn't mind. I was a nice pic!!!!!

OK, on my lunch break, hubby and I just walked for about 35 minutes in the horrendous heat. Amazing. Now I am all sweaty and my hair in hanging in my face. He suggested it...very rare! I walked this morning too! Double Whammy.

That is really yucky, Jen!!! I am actually leaving work in 30 min. Our vacation and sick leave runs fiscal year, and I just got my leave report, and I have more vacation left than I thought, so since this is the last day to use it, I am leaving a little early. But, I'm not gone yet, so post away!!!!

It is a hot one today, isn't it!! I have to run to the grocery store, I better get straight home after that or my milk will start to boil!!!
