2:30 to eat a meal? Sounds like my kinda meal. LOL.

My story is the best story.

Came home from a NY Giants last minute debacle against the San Diego Chargers and I was in the dumps so I sat down next to Karen and said so you want to do this whole marriage thing.

She said yes right when during The Green Mile right when the mouse died and Michael Clark Duncan started screaming and crying. Great way to propose and have the sounds to go along with it.

Yes, cameras are allowed. How else would I take pics of my food?

You sit across from your date. You need to be able to read body language to all your comments as well as facial expressions and you can't do that sitting next to them.

Yeay for family!

Anne said...

How lucky you are...I love long meals that involve lots of random discussions :)

Jill said...

Happy Anniversary, girl!! Woohoo! Great to hear you had such a fantastic time with the Pita :). I just realized it is Monday and I was suppose to text you about that little race in Jan. I will do that tomorrow...bad day here in Jill-land :(.

We were out running and Dawn had the heart rate monitor on... We sat down on a rock to look at the sea and I asked her (while showing her a ring) Will this make your heart beat faster!!!

I don't know what the heart rate monitor said, but I've been married for 13 years.

I had the ring with me the night before, but proposing in the restauant didn't feel right...

MCM Mama said...

Sounds like an awesome meal.

Our engagement was a casual conversation as we walked {drunk} back from the 7-11. So very romantic LOL.

I proposed to my wife with a custom made pottery pasta bowl that said Will You Marry Me in it.

I give my wife crap every time she busts out the camera at the dinner table.

Usually across, but if it is a square table then at a 90 degree angle.

Woo hoo! I won?!?! Really?!!? Totally excited! I'll shoot you an email after I finish commenting....

1. Bethany + Ryan, "Our Love on the Run" got engaged at the start line of Boston before they ran it a few years back. Can we say swoon?!?!

2. Camera's are allowed everywhere as Spike has just learned to deal with my overly sharing ways.

3. Mostly Spike and I sit across from each other but sometimes we like to snuggle and share and sit side by side. :)
