Viagra In Canada

17th Mar 2006Random

Viagra in canada As most of you have probably heard by now, viagra in canada Allison and I are now engaged. Viagra in canada After dating for five amazing years, viagra in canada we’re tying the knot. Viagra in canada It’s crazy, viagra in canada it’s exciting, viagra in canada it’s pretty much the coolest thing ever. Viagra in canada I “popped the question” on Friday, viagra in canada March 10, viagra in canada 2006. Viagra in canada You can look at pictures of each part of the event here, viagra in canada and you can head on over to www.jamesandallison.net for updates and info on everything regarding the wedding. Viagra in canada For the complete details on the proposal (it’s long so be prepared), viagra in canada go ahead and read more …

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, viagra in canada a massive amount of planning and a severe lack of sleep was required to make it all possible, viagra in canada all while being more nervous then ever before in my whole life. Viagra in canada I had many chats with my roommates about what to do, viagra in canada and I decided to revolve everything around a fabulous restaurant in Santa Barbara called Chad’s.

Viagra in canada The night before the big day, viagra in canada my roommates and I went to scope out locations to go get drinks before dinner, viagra in canada and also went to check out the scene at Chad’s. Viagra in canada The pick for drinks was a place called Nu. Viagra in canada It’s just a nice, viagra in canada quiet place to go for cocktails and dinner in downtown Santa Barbara. Viagra in canada Then, viagra in canada off to Chad’s. Viagra in canada The hostess was extremely accommodating, viagra in canada telling me that she would do anything in her power to make the night perfect. Viagra in canada I looked over the menu and chose our salad and entrées (Caesar Salads for both of us, viagra in canada Blackened Ahi Tuna for Allison, viagra in canada and Mahi Mahi for me), viagra in canada and the guy who arranges the desserts came out and explained each dessert in detail; I went with the chocolate soufflé hands down. Viagra in canada I asked for red wine recommendations based on our food, viagra in canada and we got to try three different wines. Viagra in canada Of the options, viagra in canada the unanimous vote was for the Liberty School Syrah 1999. Viagra in canada I preordered everything so there would be no ordering to do the next day. Viagra in canada Everything is ready to go. Viagra in canada Almost.

Viagra in canada On Friday morning, viagra in canada I had some errands to run. Viagra in canada First, viagra in canada I went downtown to buy myself a new shirt for the occasion. Viagra in canada This is not something that I do well. Viagra in canada I see a rack filled with clothes and I panic. Viagra in canada Anyway, viagra in canada I grabbed a black shirt and went to try it on. Viagra in canada If you’ve ever tried on a new dress shirt, viagra in canada you’ll know that there are about 90 pins that you have to pull out before you try it on. Viagra in canada 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. Viagra in canada I think there should be a “Pin-Person” in the fitting rooms of department stores. Viagra in canada I’m rambling.

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

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

Viagra in canada The Proposal:
Here we go. Viagra in canada Allison showed up at the door at around 2:30pm, viagra in canada just about 2 hours before we needed to leave. Viagra in canada I was trying my best to play it cool, viagra in canada but I was insanely nervous. Viagra in canada We had a little SuDoku competition, viagra in canada but I lost big time (couldn’t concentrate–I never lose that bad). Viagra in canada I told her that we were going to go on a double date with Jason and Laura, viagra in canada but that they cancelled on us and we would still go out; that was one of many lies. Viagra in canada After we got ready, viagra in canada we went to Nu for drinks, viagra in canada and really had a great time. Viagra in canada We had a lot of great conversation; it was just fantastic to be together and have nowhere else to be.

Viagra in canada Then we headed over to Chad’s. Viagra in canada It started raining, viagra in canada but I knew that was coming. Viagra in canada I had my rain jacket and my gold umbrella, viagra in canada so we were good. Viagra in canada When we got to the restaurant, viagra in canada we were immediately brought to our table. Viagra in canada We were placed at the best table in the whole restaurant, viagra in canada right by the front window. Viagra in canada One of the first things she acknowledged was the fact that we had the best table, viagra in canada and a beautiful arrangement of flowers on it. Viagra in canada After a little while she also asked why we did not get any menus. Viagra in canada I successfully played off all these questions, viagra in canada and until the food and wine came without us ordering, viagra in canada I’m pretty sure she didn’t think twice about it. Viagra in canada 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, viagra in canada Allison went to the restroom. Viagra in canada 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, viagra in canada it would have looked like I was carrying three cell phones). Viagra in canada Also, viagra in canada Ryan and Kayla came to take pictures from outside (out of sight), viagra in canada but when they got there, viagra in canada Allison was not at the table. Viagra in canada The waiter also happened to come with the food while she was gone, viagra in canada but he walked around the restaurant once or twice until she returned.

Viagra in canada When the dessert arrived, viagra in canada it was time for the big moment. Viagra in canada The server placed a chocolate soufflé in between us, viagra in canada 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. Viagra in canada I pushed the plate closer to her so she could read what they said, viagra in canada she processed it for a few seconds, viagra in canada and by the time she looked up at me I was on my knee about to ask her to marry me. Viagra in canada She has definitely never been more speechless and excited, viagra in canada but managed to say “Yes” countless times after a few seconds. Viagra in canada I put the ring on her finger, viagra in canada which fit perfectly and looked absolutely beautiful.

Viagra in canada A few minutes later, viagra in canada the server brought us glasses of champagne and strawberries, viagra in canada along with his congratulations. Viagra in canada We enjoyed the moment for about a half-hour, viagra in canada and barely touched the dessert. Viagra in canada I called Ryan, viagra in canada who was waiting to bring us the car and chauffeur us back to the house. Viagra in canada When he opened the door for Allison, viagra in canada the other four bouquets of flowers were arranged around a pillow that my mom made that says “Always Kiss Me Goodnight.” And Ryan took us back to the house.

Viagra in canada The Celebration:
When we opened the door to our house, viagra in canada we were greeted with a congratulations from all of my roommates, viagra in canada a bunch of friends, viagra in canada and Allison’s 3 roommates. Viagra in canada We had more champagne and just had a little party to celebrate the event, viagra in canada and took the time to call our families to let them know all about it.

Viagra in canada The next morning, viagra in canada we drove down to San Diego to celebrate with the family, viagra in canada and my parents even flew down to celebrate with us. Viagra in canada We went to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for dinner, viagra in canada and just had an amazing weekend of celebration with everyone. Viagra in canada We took a drive to the Darlington House in La Jolla, viagra in canada where we will be getting married, viagra in canada and took lots of pictures by the beach in La Jolla. Viagra in canada

Viagra in canada All in all, viagra in canada an incredibly fun and memorable weekend.

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

    Bev and I are so happy for the two of you, we could bust. I do not know how you played…whatever that game was called before you left for the restaurant! Win or lose…I don’t know how you played at all!

    Well, I can’t wait to wrap my arms around you both and fill you with as much love as you can hold…
