Hitting it big in Tunica ! (or leaving a me and coming back a we)

I'm happy to report that Den finally popped the question on Thursday night. Guess this makes me an engaged woman now! Yipee!!!! I know, I know, you want all the gritty details don't you? Well,since we are frineds and all, I'll be nice and give you the low down.

We went to Tunica this past weekend (we like playing the slots) and we were having the best time possible. That Thursday night, we had went to dinner and then we came back to the hotel room. I went to the bathroom and when I came out, there was a bowl of fruit and a bottle of champange on the table. Den asked me to feed him and I'm like, "what do you want me to feed you for?" He's all "Shut up,I'm trying to be romantic."

I know,real mushy,right?

Anyway, then we're laying on the bed and I'm feeding him grapes and stuff and the he asks me to give him some strawberries and while I'm looking for them, he manages to roll off the bed and get down on one knee.He then proceeds to give this big speech about how "we've been together in good times and bad times and he's seen me when I was sick and he took care of me. You're a part of me and wil you marry me?"

Now, please be aware that while he's saying all this, I don't hear anything, all I see is the ring. Finally, when he stopped talking, I took the ring from him and did a little happy dance around the room. I'm sure you think I was overreacting,but think whatever you want.

You just don't understand....I've been waiting 5 years for this ring...5 years!!!

After dancing around for a while, he says "so, is that a yes or a no?" Of course I said yes. So now,I'm an enegaed woman and it's a very strange feeling.I can no longer refer to Den as my boyfriend but my fiancee. It's a strange feeling to say the least.

My friend was joking that since I'm engaged, I can't check out guys anymore. I laugh and say" hey, just because you've put the menu down doesn't mean you still can't look ." What's the harm in that?

Celebrating 12 years of marriage!
