Greg proposed to me in Vegas on February 15, 2009. He made me wait! This was our second trip to Vegas together, and on our first trip, we stood on a bridge watching the Bellagio fountains and I just loved them. On our second trip he secretly made reservations at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant to have their award winning food. He had planned to propose at the top of the replica Eiffel Tower right before dinner, but when he asked me if I wanted to go up before dinner -- I said let's go after! So I ruined the plan! He reserved a table overlooking he fountains, and the meal was fantastic. After dinner we went to that same bridge to watch the fountains... and there we stood, him behind me with his arms around me. He began talking about the promise ring he gave me which was on my right hand. While he was talking about it, he slipped it off of my finger to read the inscription inside: in aeternum - for eternity in latin. I began to get nervous about the promise ring being off my finger and asked for it back. It was then he pulled out the engagement ring and asked if I would like to have it! I was speechless! Then he said "will you marry me?" Of course my answer was yes!
Here is the view from the Eiffel Tower Restaurant and a shot of the ring from our e-session:

Will You be my Bridesmaid Poems:
You have always been there, more than just a friend.
You know just who I am and everywhere I've been.
You're the one who I can turn to, any hour of the day.
Seems, I only have to think of you and you'll be on your way.
No matter where life takes me, no matter where I roam.
When I'm with you my friend, my heart feels right at home.
So on my wedding day, I will need you more than ever.
Please say you'll be my bridesmaid now.... and my friend forever
The day, the dress
The Bride, the Groom
The Joy the tears will all come soon
Professing true love to my husband-to-be
With family and friends all watching me
Pray the sun will be shining down
and that i will fit into my gown
Now there is just one more thing that is left to be and thats to have you standing with me...
Will you be my bridesmaid?
The day that I marry, our families will blend,
you'll be my sister and also my friend.
It's so very special to know you will be,
a part of this day, a bridesmaid for me.
It's just the beginning, of our brand new life,
as Greg and I, become man and wife.
The Bridesmaids dresses will be from the Dessy Group, in Champagne colored Matte Satin (actual color called Palomino). They will be floor length and I will be having the girls chose the top that suits their figure the best - but all different. Here is what I had in mind:
