For my birthday and our one-year anniversary Mike gave me a gift certificate for a full day of services at a very luxurious spa in the Wisconsin Dells.
I spent an extremely relaxing day at the spa; feeling pampered in every way, but really missing Mike a lot.
Finally after having EVERYTHING done, he picked me up for a fancy dinner. We ate wonderful steak, but I was really full after. I normally have an insatiable sweet tooth, but I didn’t think I could stomach any more food. But with Mike’s encouragement, I finally agreed to dessert. A waiter wheeled up a dessert cart with three desserts on top. A different waiter explained the first two desserts, which were in plain view.
But then Mike stood up and said, "or you could have my suggestion" as he pulled off the silver covering on the third plate. The ring was underneath.
He proceeded to get down on one knee and asked me to marry him. We both had tears in our eyes as I said "yes". Right about that time I realized that the first waiter wasn’t really a waiter, but Mike’s best friend dressed up. He and his wife had traveled up to WI to help with the proposal.
This was not the end though. Mike still wouldn?t tell me where we were staying that night. So as we drove home after a tasty dessert, he handed me a scarf and told me to blindfold myself. I later found myself at a huge, log cabin in a secluded WI forest along the Wisconsin River. I walked inside to see candles lit all over the room, a fire going in the fireplace, and a path of rose petals leading to the downstairs. We followed the path only to find a dark quiet room until our friends and family jumped out and yelled "Surprise!"
