    My girlfriend and I got two yorkie Bochum Frise mix puppies from a rescue in march or April. We still hadn't gotten them dog tags made up so I made real tags for Molly and Dexter. Then I made another one for Dexter that said "will you marry me"
    Her mom and her went to get their nails done while her dad stayed while we fixed their cabinet. When they get home, I tell her I finally got the dogs tags made, but I messed dexters up. She looks at it to see what was misspelled, and when she looks up she sees me holding her ring and starts crying hysterically
    :wiggle:
    Then me, her, her parents, and my mom went to the olive garden to celebrate

    Terrible picture I know. I'm still at her parents and can't get the images off my camera so I had to use my phone

    Beautiful ring and wonderful story. Gotta say the ring looks prettier on her finger than yours, though.

    Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together. :coolsmile:

    Well when you're there you're family! ;) :)

    Actually I'm not all that formal either . . . around here there aren't that many fancy schmancy restaurants and honestly I don't particularly care to go to those types of places . . . just not my thing . . . besides . . . he could have said they celebrated by going to McDonalds and ordering off the Dollar Menu, right? ;)

    I was 1/2 busting on him. I don't care much for fancy restaurants but I'm not a huge fan of the chains. Give me a local pub/diner.

    That's right! Everyone should marry a practice wife! My second was a keeper!

    Congrats and clever engagement. Mine was lame.... both times. Creativity is not my strong suit. Actually haven't found my strong suit... Congrats ! A spring wedding? Chainsaws on the cake?

    Congrats. I have been holding off all day telling you the same thing my wife's uncle told us when we told him we were engaged. "That is great. Why should you two be any happier than the rest of us.".

    He told us that 37 years ago.

    Congratulations! May your marriage last longer than ours. We'll be 50 years so we're 10 ahead of Craig.

    Oh, mush.... that was just a sweet way to ask her. I'm a sop.... sniff, sniff.

    Congrats!

    From someone who's celebrating # of yrs. married more that Craig and slightly less than BS. My first hitch at this marriage thing has been my best!

    15 years of marriage . . . working on Year 16. First marriage for me . . . and she was a keeper (second for her . . . the first one was just for practice I guess). I truly find her to be the most beautiful and perfect woman . . . most beautiful and perfect for me . . . and to me that is all that matters.

    I proposed to her many years ago in Bethel, ME . . . or near Bethel, ME near the Screw Auger Falls . . . figured if she said no I could always leap to my death . . . and yes I am kidding. Worse part was when I asked her there was a very long pause . . . I think it was one of the few times I have actually surprised her.
