1) The Scrap Book

On February 3, 2003, one day after our 4 year anniversary my boyfriend (well finacee now) surprised me with a weekend off of work. He actually talked my manager in to giving me the whole weekend off. I thought that this was my anniversary present. Then I find out that he has planned on taking me out for a fancy dinner. After we get ready and we go our for dinner I was then told that he has reserved the jacuzzi suite at the hotel down the street for the weekend for us! We then finish our dinner and go to the hotel. He then gives me a large box and tells me to open it. I open the box and inside is a scrapbook that he has spent months making for me. The front cover says "Forever" and as I open the book it starts playing our song. Then on each page he has pictures of us throughout the years together. As I get to the end of the book a page says "Our Past" with pictures of us from years ago, the next page says "Our Present" with pictures of us from just a few weeks ago, and the last page says "And our Future" with a large picture of Belle from Beauty and the Beast with her hands being held together by a 1/2 carat diamond engagement ring. And beside Belle it write…"Will You Marry Me?"
