I was planning to propose to Kat in Dubai as the hotel we were staying at had a fantastic rooftop area about 50 stories up with a fantastic view of the city and the Arabian gulf... Unfortunately the plans were thwarted by my lazines. Kat wanted to start packing a good week before the trip, but as a guy I found this totally unnecessary. I finally agreed to start packing (when I say that, I really mean I sit on the bed while Kat gets all of my clothes ready :P). Before I continue I should tell you that the ring was hidden in my sock draw and I''d kind of forgotten about it... Anyway Kat started pulling out shirts and pants and then got to the sock draw. At the same time I heard my Blackberry ringing so I rushed downstairs to get it, only to return to Kat sitting on the bed pointing at the box in the sock draw with a tear in her eye. Needless to say, I proposed right there and of course she said yes!!! I was a little bit disappointed because I didn''t get to ask her parents before hand - I wanted to wait until the last minute because they are gossips!
We haven''t yet set a date but are looking. It also goes without saying that she LOVES the ring and we will be coming back for more jewelry.
Thanks again for all of your help, it is truly appreciated!
