A Girl's Necessities...

In answer to Tracy's blog, here are my necessities...

My brand new bright yellow summer purse, which I just love, it adds pop to every outfit

My coach wallet, the first coach item I ever owned and I still just love it!

My coach sunglasses, I have a black pair and a brown pair depending on my outfit and I feel lost if I leave the house without them!

My blue tooth, my commute gives me LOTS of talk time and without my blue tooth I get very lonely...

My car keys to my new cleaned Celica =)

My bare minerals compact, just in case I need to freshen up throughout the day

My perfume container that looks like a lipstick case, I got it at Christmas last year and it comes in so handy

What are your necessities?

The Proposal...

Brian and I headed up to Monterey Saturday morning for "his birthday" trip. He had planned the whole trip, got recommendations from friends, made dinner reservations, etc. We were both really excited, however I was completely in the dark. We arrived in Monterey around 12, checked into The Plaza and headed downstairs for a bite to eat. We then headed to the aquarium, one of Brian's favorite places in the whole world. After the aquarium we headed back to the hotel to change and freshen up for dinner. We had a really nice dinner at the Sardine Factory but throughout dinner Brian kept checking his watch, I told him to relax and enjoy his dinner but he of course did not listen. After dinner we walked, well more like ran back to the hotel to change and head out to Lover's Point to watch the sunset. We climbed out on the rocks and poured ourselves a glass of wine to enjoy the sunset, which was incredible. We chatted briefly about the Ocean and the sea animals. Brian was very fidgety but because I was not suspecting anything I just figured he was trying to get comfortable. As we finished our glasses of wine he asked me to refill them. I reached into the bag moving things out of the way and removed the wine bottle. Apparently in doing so I moved an envelope Brian had meant for me to see, so with a little prodding on his part I opened the envelope and immediately started balling. When I finally read the card through my tear filled eyes I looked up to see him on one knee with the most beautiful ring I have EVER seen. It was an amazing incredible wonderful fantastic proposal.
