The Preparation:
Let me just start off by saying that although there isn’t a big long list of events that occurred throughout the night, drink alcohol with viagra a massive amount of planning and a severe lack of sleep was required to make it all possible, drink alcohol with viagra all while being more nervous then ever before in my whole life. Drink alcohol with viagra I had many chats with my roommates about what to do, drink alcohol with viagra and I decided to revolve everything around a fabulous restaurant in Santa Barbara called Chad’s.

Drink alcohol with viagra The night before the big day, drink alcohol with viagra my roommates and I went to scope out locations to go get drinks before dinner, drink alcohol with viagra and also went to check out the scene at Chad’s. Drink alcohol with viagra The pick for drinks was a place called Nu. Drink alcohol with viagra It’s just a nice, drink alcohol with viagra quiet place to go for cocktails and dinner in downtown Santa Barbara. Drink alcohol with viagra Then, drink alcohol with viagra off to Chad’s. Drink alcohol with viagra The hostess was extremely accommodating, drink alcohol with viagra telling me that she would do anything in her power to make the night perfect. Drink alcohol with viagra I looked over the menu and chose our salad and entrées (Caesar Salads for both of us, drink alcohol with viagra Blackened Ahi Tuna for Allison, drink alcohol with viagra and Mahi Mahi for me), drink alcohol with viagra and the guy who arranges the desserts came out and explained each dessert in detail; I went with the chocolate soufflé hands down. Drink alcohol with viagra I asked for red wine recommendations based on our food, drink alcohol with viagra and we got to try three different wines.

Drink alcohol with viagra I preordered everything so there would be no ordering to do the next day. Drink alcohol with viagra Everything is ready to go. Drink alcohol with viagra Almost.

Drink alcohol with viagra On Friday morning, drink alcohol with viagra I had some errands to run. Drink alcohol with viagra First, drink alcohol with viagra I went downtown to buy myself a new shirt for the occasion. Drink alcohol with viagra This is not something that I do well. Drink alcohol with viagra I see a rack filled with clothes and I panic. Drink alcohol with viagra Anyway, drink alcohol with viagra I grabbed a black shirt and went to try it on. Drink alcohol with viagra If you’ve ever tried on a new dress shirt, drink alcohol with viagra you’ll know that there are about 90 pins that you have to pull out before you try it on. Drink alcohol with viagra All I could think was that this shirt had better fit–there’s no way I’m pulling the pins on another shirt–and I better not get stabbed by a pin I missed. Drink alcohol with viagra I think there should be a “Pin-Person” in the fitting rooms of department stores. Drink alcohol with viagra I’m rambling.

Drink alcohol with viagra Then I went on to Trader Joe’s in search of an abundance of colorful flowers. Drink alcohol with viagra Jackpot. Drink alcohol with viagra I got 5 bouquets: one for the table at Chad’s and four for … well you’ll see.

Drink alcohol with viagra I had two big helpers throughout the day, drink alcohol with viagra Ryan and Kayla. Drink alcohol with viagra When I got home I handed the flowers and some other goodies off to them, drink alcohol with viagra so they could bring them to Chad’s before we got there.

Drink alcohol with viagra The Proposal:
Here we go. Drink alcohol with viagra Allison showed up at the door at around 2:30pm, drink alcohol with viagra just about 2 hours before we needed to leave. Drink alcohol with viagra I was trying my best to play it cool, drink alcohol with viagra but I was insanely nervous. Drink alcohol with viagra We had a little SuDoku competition, drink alcohol with viagra but I lost big time (couldn’t concentrate–I never lose that bad). Drink alcohol with viagra I told her that we were going to go on a double date with Jason and Laura, drink alcohol with viagra but that they cancelled on us and we would still go out; that was one of many lies.

Drink alcohol with viagra We were placed at the best table in the whole restaurant, drink alcohol with viagra right by the front window. Drink alcohol with viagra One of the first things she acknowledged was the fact that we had the best table, drink alcohol with viagra and a beautiful arrangement of flowers on it. Drink alcohol with viagra After a little while she also asked why we did not get any menus. Drink alcohol with viagra I successfully played off all these questions, drink alcohol with viagra and until the food and wine came without us ordering, drink alcohol with viagra I’m pretty sure she didn’t think twice about it. Drink alcohol with viagra At that point she definitely knew something was up; the server brought us our favorite meals; I guess I better tip them well for knowing exactly what we want! At one point between the salad and the main course, drink alcohol with viagra Allison went to the restroom. Drink alcohol with viagra I was lucky to have some time to move the ring from my rain jacket to my pocket (the case was way too big to have in my pocket when we were walking around, drink alcohol with viagra it would have looked like I was carrying three cell phones). Drink alcohol with viagra Also, drink alcohol with viagra Ryan and Kayla came to take pictures from outside (out of sight), drink alcohol with viagra but when they got there, drink alcohol with viagra Allison was not at the table. Drink alcohol with viagra The waiter also happened to come with the food while she was gone, drink alcohol with viagra but he walked around the restaurant once or twice until she returned.

Drink alcohol with viagra When the dessert arrived, drink alcohol with viagra it was time for the big moment. Drink alcohol with viagra The server placed a chocolate soufflé in between us, drink alcohol with viagra which had four “Sweethearts” candies placed on top of it that each said “Marry Me.” I had saved them and had Ryan bring them with the flowers. Drink alcohol with viagra I pushed the plate closer to her so she could read what they said, drink alcohol with viagra she processed it for a few seconds, drink alcohol with viagra and by the time she looked up at me I was on my knee about to ask her to marry me. Drink alcohol with viagra She has definitely never been more speechless and excited, drink alcohol with viagra but managed to say “Yes” countless times after a few seconds. Drink alcohol with viagra I put the ring on her finger, drink alcohol with viagra which fit perfectly and looked absolutely beautiful.

Drink alcohol with viagra A few minutes later, drink alcohol with viagra the server brought us glasses of champagne and strawberries, drink alcohol with viagra along with his congratulations. Drink alcohol with viagra We enjoyed the moment for about a half-hour, drink alcohol with viagra and barely touched the dessert.

    Dear James and Allison…WOW! First of all, I must say, James, you are a hopeless romantic; and I love it!
