Engagement Night

Hi everyone! This is the newly engaged Chrissy!!! July 15,2008 is the day I always will remember. Our day began by shopping at Williamsburg ( one of my favorite things to do :) ). At some point during our shopping spree, A.J. had informed me that we had dinner reservations in Virgina Beach. We left Williamsburg around 4:00 and headed off to the beach. As we pulled up to the restaurant I could not believe that it was right on the beach. Our table overlooked a beautiful view of the water. After we ate, A.J. decided it would be the perfect time to give me a gift which was in a black velvet box. At first I thought that little box had a ring in it, until he placed it on the table noticing the box would be too big for it to be a ring box. Inside the box were heart shaped earrings that matched a necklace he bought me for my last birthday. After eating we decided to take a walk on the beach. But, A.J. insisted that we go back to his truck where he had a bag and a cooler. I could not understand why he needed to get this cooler, but he claimed that he was very thirsty. He also had a bag with a blanket hanging out of it. We found a nice spot on the beach and A.J. placed the blanket out on the sand. We had good conversation and he then told me that he had a something to read to me (30 reasons why I love Chrissy)

After wards, he pulled out a pink and white bear. I noticed something was hanging off the bear which was pearl ribbon and a ring. He pulled off the ring that was attached to bear and then pushed the arm of bear to hear a WONDERFUL recorded message from A.J. . He then proceeded to get on his knee to ask me to Marry Him!!!!! The surprises did not end their, he pulled out a wedding gown,veil and shoes to put on the bear. I am sure you are all wondering what actually was in the cooler~ it was chocolate covered strawberries. My evening was filled with many surprises and of course my answer was YES!!!!!!! A.J. did a GREAT job in planning such a special day.
