I was so excited for my first cruise... We were going on the best vacation of my life! We were going to spend the night in New Orleans before jetting off for a tropical Caribbean cruise and my first ever tropical SCUBA adventures. We arrived at the regal Hotel Monteleone around midnight, and upon entering the room I found that my man had bought me some beautiful roses. "What a wonderful start to a romantic vacation!" I thought. The flowers were so beautiful and I was so excited for our first vacation with just the two of us. It was late and we would need to wake up early to get to security for our cruise the next morning, so we went to bed. The next morning, I awoke to the sound of breakfast being wheeled into the room. The cart was loaded with Beignets and mimosas, another PERFECT vacation experience. I was trying so hard to be snap-happy with my camera, making sure I documented the whole trip that poor Tim had to convince me to empty my hands for the next part. He gave me a great big good morning hug, telling me how happy he was (My response of course: "I'm so happy too baby, this is awesome!") and suddenly he was down on one knee with a gorgeous sparkler in his hand. Not that I could see the ring at this point; my eyes were so misted over. Obviously I said "Yes!! Yes, yes, yes!" and dragged him up to throw my arms around him, and after a few awkward kisses he asked, "So... do you want the ring?" Why, yes, yes I did. Five minutes later when I could finally see again, I saw that he had picked out a completely unique ring with way more glitter than I had ever imagined.
