FROM THE BRIDE // After spending nearly 10 years together, Jimmy proposed on our 7th anniversary. Jimmy made reservations to one of my favorite restaurants in Orange County. The restaurant location in my hometown New Orleans, actually has many family memories for me, so it was the perfect place for us to make a new one. When we arrived at the restaurant, I was surprised to see some familiar faces at the bar area. It was Jimmy’s cousins and two closest friends. It was totally unexpected, but I didn’t think much of it. We all ended up having dinner together. Towards the end of the evening, Jimmy asked me to be his example of his “Best Sales Pitch Ever.” He asked for my credit card and to close my eyes while he wrote something on paper. Little did I know…when I opened my eyes, I found Jimmy on one knee with the most beautiful ring. The paper said “Jennifer, this is my best sales pitch ever…Will you marry me?” When it comes to surprises, Jimmy is horrible and almost always caves in. This time he was able to keep his proposal plan a secret for over 6 weeks! Iwas so shocked and happy, I couldn’t stop grinning and bawled my eyes out! Of course I told him YES! And this was all filmed and facilitated by Jimmy’s cousins and friends! We celebrated this special moment with champagne and dessert. This is definitely one of the best ‘purchase’ I’ve ever made! I am counting down the days until I get to say ‘I do’ to my best friend, gym partner, and other half. I can’t wait for our families to meet for the first time at our wedding and to start a new adventure with my husband-to-be!
