I am in LOVE with Las Vegas. Tim had never been so I figured we could spend a romantic weekend in the city of sin. Tim is in the Army reserve and we knew that he would probably be deploying this year, so I thought I could also surprise him with an early 30th birthday party. On the night I had planned his party he asked if I would like to go to dinner and hang out on the strip before we went to the club. We got dressed up did the dinner thing and started walking past the Bellagio, he wanted to stop and watch the fountains. I hadn’t thought anything of it because he had never seen the fountains before. We stood around chatting before the show started, he was kind of nervous and quiet as usual, but I had no idea what he had planned. We turned to watch the fountains and just before the end of the show Tim took my hand and began to kneel, I started freaking out wondering why he was kneeling on the strip, it has got to be one of the dirtiest places. Then he pulled out the box and all I could say was “shut up” (not the most romantic thing for me to say, but something I say when I am at a loss for words). He asked and of course I said yes!! We were planning on having out wedding on the same day her proposed (02.02.10) but a year later. However the Army had different plans, Tim got deployed to Afghanistan on the 8th of February, so we are going to get married on 09.10.11...
.Tim and I met at a jail… Not because we did anything wrong, because we work there. He was a cadet in the academy and he had to come to the jail for a day. He watched me work said very little and left. I figured that I would never talk to him again because he would be put on a different shift etc. etc. Well six months later who do I run into? Tim, he was now a Deputy Sheriff and he was on my shift. It was New Years Eve and we were working the grave shift, around midnight he came into the gym he said happy New Year, we talked a little and I had to go back to work. I got back to my post and noticed that Tim had e-mailed me. He asked me to a movie and dinner, I figured I would give this really quiet handsome guy a shot ;) From that day on we have been inseparable
