My Daughters Birthday Surprise

Well July 12 is my daughters birthday. :)

She called me up Wednesday morning to ask us for dinner, she said she wanted to BBQ on her new birthday present a very nice posh BBQ. ( :rolleyes: I thought it was a strange present but hey hubby and I have bought household things for each other in times of need so it was logical as they had just moved in together July1st) I couldn't refuse so we made arrangements for all the animals and went.

At one point I went out to talk to her boyfriend while he was cooking to see and talk about her BBQ. Then he informed me :eek: He said.......

"This BBQ isn't really Sarah's present, It's a cover up present, I have booked a table at a fancy restaruant in Downtown Toronto for 8:00 Pm Monday evening and I have bought her a ring!!!!!" :eek:

I was shocked and I'm sure said all the wrong things ( as an after thought I thought perhaps he thought I should have been more excited)

I'm happy for her, I know this is what she wants, and it must certainly be very exciting to be proposed to in such a romantic way, he is a nice guy, his family is very nice, he seems to treat her good but I guess as a mom I'm a little nervous about the whole situation.


So anyhow I thought I would share my news and a pic of them
Have a great day :)

Awwww Iggy,that's nice!! When my oldest son got married to a great girl,I was sooo excited,already dreaming of grand-babies :D
When they after 10yrs of marriage decided to divorce,I was probably more devastated than they were,swore they had not tried hard enough!!!
Anyway Iggy,not trying to put a damper on your news,it's wonderful and congrats to you daughter and future son-in-law :p

That's great! I don't think anyone ever feels like they said the "right" things. He probably knew you were caught off guard and enjoyed the reaction! :eek: Keep us "posted" as the wedding plans progress! She doesn't read your posts does she? Or the cat may be out of the bag. :eek:

Thanks for the congrats, luba

No Glasslass she still has to pick up her computer and desk from our place, to move into hers........lol gee that would be bad tho.

Chico....They have talked about having children so I think I will hear the patter of little feet soon so far only hearing the patter of baby diesel's feet and as he was learning to potty train he tried out my rug in all the excitement of being here for the first time when they adopted him :rolleyes:

YIPEEE!!! This is so exciting!! Wonderful news!! I always love to hear about engagements! You'll have to tell us how he did it! There is a guy that does subcontract work for our company and they had kinda a group dinner to celebrate a "friend's birthday" and they were all out on the patio of the restaurant when he came riding up on a white horse wearing armour!!!! And then proposed right there!!!! I love stuff like that, of course, mine was nothing like that.... :rolleyes:

Sorry, been busy these last few days.........

Well all went well they went to a fancy restaurant called bravi I think somewhere downtown Toronto, apparently it has a private elevator that they sit you in for Dinner and you can go to different floors :confused:
Anyway he got down on his knee gave her a big long speach how he wants to spend the rest of his life with her ....yada yada yada and asked her to marry him :D

She said yes (after she said she felt sick and thought she was gonna pass out.....lol)

Apparently she has a beautiful custom made solitare gold ring with platinum clasps that hold the diamond (can't wait to see it).

No date set yet, Wow mother in-law and Nana in the same week? Don't know for sure but will know very soon :D

No, you didn't miss anything but grandbabies were mentioned and I said that all they had at the moment was their puppy Diesel......but I have been told that she missed her date and it might be a possibility but have to wait a few more days to know for sure, she is presently 5 days late :eek: so ya maybe a nana. :p
