I hope you all had a very wonderful Christmas! I did indeed! My mom and I headed down to the Cape on Christmas Eve morning, Music Guy got up early and left first thing. My mom and I had to do a little more shopping so we figured we'd go to the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis as appose to any of the malls on Rt. 3. I had to get a new pair of shoes as I noticed when I was driving the ones I was wearing were starting to fray. Annoying, I had only wore them twice. Argh! Anywho, we finally got to Music Guy's parents and their house was decorated so beautiful! (like always)
A few days ago Music Guy told me he always goes down to the beach to toast his sister for Christmas. There is a rock off of Craigsville Beach in Centerville that is the center point of where they laid his sisters ashes in the ocean. He had asked if I would like to join him and I of course wanted to.
We got to their house around 1ish, watched a little bit of the Pats game and then we were off to the beach. It was a little cloudy but when we got to the beach the sun came out and it was so peaceful. We were the only ones on the beach, Music Guy kept point to what looked like the rock and there was also a ferry heading out to Nantucket it was neat to be able to be there with him to share in his special tradition.
All of a sudden he looks over and says "What the fuck...what is that..what do you think that is" and I was trying to figure out what he was talking about. It was a blanket and roses and a bottle of Champagne and I turn to him and he is on one knee and asked me to marry him!!! Of course I started crying and was so shocked. I had NO idea it was going to happen over Christmas, I knew it was going to be over the next couple months. We were still the only ones on the beach it was one of the best moments of my life. We sat and talked about all the things you talk about right after you get engaged like who knew, how he came up with the idea, when he got the ring, all that good stuff. I have never seen him so happy and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world! We tried to take some pictures of ourselves but they sure didn't look so good! Then all of a sudden this English family came walking by and they took our picture. It turned out great! Not the best of me but who cares! I will get them on line and post it soon!
We then headed back to the house after being there for an hour! We pulled in and his sister J, my mom and his mom came running outside clapping. I can't get over how thrilled everyone was it was overwhelming and very exciting!
J had come home right when we got there, she was out buying some last minute gifts and then Music Guys mom had forgotten something at the store and asked J to go. Well little did I know she was really going down to the beach to set the whole thing up. Music Guy and her had planned it a few days before. And he had gone down to the beach that morning and marked the spot so she would know where to go. She then texted him when it was ok for us to leave. It was so special because both of his sisters played a part in his master plan!
My mom talked and talked and talked the whole drive down to the Cape and at one point I was like good god woman, shhhhshhh. She was so scared she was going to say something and trip me off to what was going on, so she had to keep her self busy and drive me nuts!
After we got back we cheered with his parents, J and her hubby to be G and my mom. Then it was off to make the calls. It was so neat to tell all the people we love!
We are planning to get married in the Summer of 2008, which is prefect as we are planning it either on the Vineyard or the Cape. The Vineyard would be perfect for us! We have spent a lot of time fishing and being around the Island!
I will post again on all my Christmas goodies, one good one was J gave me a shopping bag FULL of Bridal maggers, I can't wait to dive in!
