On March 15, 2008, my sweetheart of 7 ½ years asked me to be his wife and I’m still on cloud 9! I will warn you in advance that this maybe a long post. :o)
My birthday was Friday and he threw a huge surprise party for my 26th birthday (huge surprise because I truly had not a clue that anything was going on) with all of my friends and family at his house. My fabulous DZ sisters, Leslie and Catherine were able to attend and Catherine decided to spend the night.
The next day, we went to lunch with Catherine before she headed to her home in Charlotte, NC and then we were off to go antique shopping (it was my idea) for the rest of the day. We had just left the parking lot and Leslie called (who by the way had no clue that this was going on) to ask us if she had left her keys at Lenny’s house. Since we hadn’t left the city yet, we drove to Lenny’s house to search for the keys and found them. While on the phone with Leslie, I started to search on Google to see where in South Carolina we could meet up and decided to just take them to Catherine. I had just hung up the phone and Lenny handed me my nametag from the Greenville Braves (a former AA team of the Atlanta Braves) where we had met back in 1999 before we started dating in 2000. My response was “Wow! Where did you find this?” and he asked me to look on the back.
I turned it over and there was my ring!!!
By the time I realized “oh-my-gosh-this-is-the-moment”, he was already on one knee asking me the four words we all dream of hearing…”will you marry me?”
It was FABULOUS!

I was so impressed with the Spartanburg DMV today when I went to renew my license today! Anticipating a long ordeal, I brought along a paperback and prepped myself to sit at least an hour. But to my great surprise the DMV is on the ball! 10 minutes or less and I was gone. Talk about a fabulous surprise!

Behold the beloved 2006 Cole Haan Leather Satchel that I've been looking for the Google, EBay and various other websites to find out that apparently the fantastic bag no longer exist. I know…such a sad, sad state of affairs.
That was until I found it in a random shoe store here in Spartanburg. Amazed I asked for the bag to be placed on hold until I could bring my dear boyfriend into the store to show him exactly what I wanted for a Valentine's Day or birthday or Valentine's Day/Birthday gift.
So later on in the week, I drag my boyfriend into a all women's store to show him the bag. To the same sales girl, I ask to have the bag placed on hold just in case someone special wanted to buy it for me. Two days later my boyfriend walks back into the store to buy the bag. "Victory is mine" you think right?
Apparently the owner wanted the bag. The owner! So she took off the shelf and kept it for herself. Never mind the customer who had spent the last six months look for this bag, found it and placed it on hold. Nope, a $300 profit didn't matter to her.
So now I’m back to square one…no bag…and a credit to a store with the horrible owner. What luck?
