Matt proposed on December 6, 2003. My friend Carrie invited me the month prior to a free spa day she had received from her "boss." I woke up early Saturday morning. Matt dropped me off at the spa at 8:45am. I had a massage, facial, manicure, and pedicure. Carrie and I went to lunch after our relaxing morning and then went shopping.
As I entered my favorite store, Carrie handed me an envelope. Matt wrote me a letter. In it he told me to pick out any outfit I wanted as an early Christmas present. I started to try on clothes when I found a gorgeous blouse. At that point, Carrie informed me that I only had 10 minutes since we had to go somewhere else. She announced that I needed black slacks and the folks working at the store all scrambled to get me a pair. I quickly found a pair I loved and since Matt took care of the bill we took off for the next adventure.
She dropped me off at a hair salon where I got another letter. This one told me that an appointment had been made for a wash, cut, and style. Once again, the bill had been paid. I was so relaxed after all the pampering. Carrie came again to pick me up and asked if we could stop at her apartment. We stopped and she gave me a third note. This one was with a bag of my shoes and underwear so that I could change into my new outfit. He had my black heals and brown heals since he did not know what color outfit I would choose. He did not include makeup since he said to Carrie that I look so beautiful without it.
I asked Carrie if there was anything left and she lied to me yet again as she had so many times throughout the day. She dropped me off at Matt’s place where there were candles lit everywhere, 2 dozen roses, champagne on ice, a card, and a box. Matt sat me down on the couch, got on one knee and proposed. He had asked my parents for their blessing earlier in the day and of course they said yes, as did I. After he proposed he had told my parents he would have me call them. I did, recounted the day to them and then we went to a wine bistro to meet up with my friends that still didn?t know what had happened that day (except Carrie). It was so fantastic that Matt thought to share our special day with all the important people in our life.
