"It's In The Cards."

August 16th, 2008 at 04:41 pm

This is completely un-financial, but I forgot to mention it in my post earlier tonight, and I'm just a tad excited.

I was joking around with BF tonight, he said he wanted to play Playstation, and I said I wanted more days off work together. He said he wanted to go camping, I said I wanted the Harry Potter movie to come out in November. We kept at it, each time getting a little more extreme. I finally smiled and said, "I want to get engaged."

He smiled back and said "It's in the cards."

Of course, I've kind of known it was coming for a while, so I just laughed and said "surreee it's in the cards."

Then he walked over to the counter, opened his wallet, and pulled out a business card from a local diamond store. Yikes! It really is in the cards! Smile

    Hi - This has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but I saw your post on disneysteve's blog about going to DC. I went in November. If you are a AAA member, I recommend getting their guidebook to DC (free for members).

    The AAA book gives you very detailed walking routes.

    We broke the main DC area in to 3 hard core days:
    - Day 1: The memorial (west?) end of the mall & White House
    - Day 2: The Capitol end of the mall
    - Day 3: The museums (we actually went back another day to visit some additional museums)
    Everything was free.

    We also spent a day going to Mount Vernon, and it was GREAT. (There was an admission fee there, but well worth it.)

    The sites are quite inexpensive (most are completely free), and public transportation is great, but lodging is quite expensive. We rented a condo through VRBO.com that had a kitchen so we saved quite a bit on meals.

    Thanks, everybody. I am excited, but I'll be more excited when I can say we are officially engaged! BF has always been sweet/corny like that... one of his many quirks.

    scfr - I'm not a AAA member, but I think my mom might be, so I'll have to ask if she can get the guidebook for us. We'll take any help we can get. I'm not sure if we'll be able to stay overnight, since we have the pup to make arrangements for, but even if we can just spend a good day there, I'll be happy!
