The day has come! the love of my life has asked me to marry him and I couldn’t be happier.
The whole weekend is huge blur of emotions and the case of food poisoning but it will definitely be one of the most memorable one in my life.
It first started out with my boyfriend now (fiancé) asking me to take monday, June 2nd off because he wanted to have a relaxing weekend with me and for us to do fun things together. Even though it sounded suspicious and he never really suggested anything like this before, he has been traveling a lot for work so I shrugged it off and said okay.
So the weekend before, I asked what he would like to do during our 3 day weekend and he suggested Disneyland on Saturday (Which I will soon to regret later), Sunday the Beach and then Monday a day of relaxation.

We started our day early and headed to Disneyland, we decided to spend the day at California Adventures because I really wanted to watch World of Color. We got to California Adventures and started the morning off with breakfast at the Wharf. We then decided to go on some rides… we then realized how old we are getting because California Screamin was a lot scarier then I remembered. We also decided to take selfies of ourselves and with crying children in the back and #thehappiestplaceonearth ( we are hilarious, I know)
The rest of the day was eventful, we went to went on Ariel’s ride like three times because of how relaxing and slow it was, we also went on swinging symphony twice (We only rode on rides that had less then a 25 minute wait time) and we watched the Aladdin show which was hilarious (Aladdin my FAVORITE disney movie of all time)and we also had a late lunch at Catal in downtown Disney. By around 4pm we were dying and realized we had about 3 1/2 hours until our dinner reservations at the Winery in California Adventure. It was a packaged deal where we would get preferred seating to watch WOC. So to kill time, we watched the Pixar parade, rode on Ariel’s ride (this was the 2nd time) and also a new ride in Carsland, which was like bumper cars but you moved the car around with your body weight. Aaron had a blast. We then went off to our reservation. It was a preset menu, I got the Salad, and Aaron got the soup. He got the pasta and I got the filet mignon and we both got samples of the desserts. By the time we finished dinner, we decided to go onto Ariel’s ride one more time (3rd time) and we went to wait for WOC. We decided to stand in the front, even though we knew there was a possibility we would get wet. By that time Aaron started not feeling well but he stayed for me… <3
The show started at 9:45pm and it was amazing… I would love to go see it again but I think it will be years before I will go again. When it ended… we then had to follow a huge crowd out.. be pushed around to wait for the tram and finally got to the car. By the time we got home it was already 11pm. We are old so we were SUPER TIRED. I passed out right away.
June 1st, 2014
My poor boyfriend woke up at 2am and started throwing up and not feeling well. He told me not to get up and I just slept the rest of the night. (SO BAD I KNOW!) I then woke up around 7 am and had a really bad headache, so i decided to sleep it off. I woke up again at 7:30am and realized that I wanted to throw up… I held it in as long as I could because my boyfriend said he wanted to go to the beach and I didn’t want to ruin our weekend.. but I ended up throwing up everything I ate last night. My boyfriend and I then concluded that we both had food poisoning. (IT WAS KARMA due to our hilarious selfies.) By 10am, my boyfriend was feeling much better but I was still stuck in bed wishing I could rip out my stomach and why did I go to Disneyland. He kept reassuring me that it was okay we could still go to the Beach later… thats where I felt like that was fishy because he always likes to go to the beach early.. but that day he told me “it was okay we could go later”. It was very un-Aaron like for him to say that but I quickly forgot the thought when my stomach felt like it was punching itself.
1pm rolls on by and I asked him if he really wanted to go to the beach still because I am not sure if I was going to be able to make it… he then told me that he wanted to surprise me but he had booked us massages at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach and the cancellation fee was very expensive. I was very shocked he would do something like that for me, so I sucked it up and started getting ready. We left at 2:30pm and I slept the 30 minute car ride there, and he asked where he should park since the massage wasn’t until 4 pm, he could park at the structure or valet. By that point I asked him to please Valet because I just wanted to get out of the car. We then went to the check in desk and he had booked us a room at the resort! I still didn’t really think anything of it, I just wanted to lay down and I was excited that we had a room so I could run to the bathroom if I had to.
We were walked to our room and when the concierge opened the door for us… I was greeted with rose petals on the floor, and a heart shaped on the bed, a free bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I was shocked.
I walked around the room and took everything in, (my sickness decided to be nice and went away temporarily) and then Aaron came over to me, I thought he was going to hug me like he usually does when he does romantic gestures… but this time he had a box in his hand and got down on one knee…I was in shock, and I couldn’t believe it was happening… I had to ask him what he said to me because it was all a blur and a huge rush of emotions. I am going to spend the rest of my life with him and I couldn’t be happier!
"I know this is bad timing, but you are the love of my life and I love you so much and I want to know if you would marry me"
He said my face was hilarious and my response was OMG. HAHAHAHA!!!!
His plan was for us to go the beach and he wanted to propose to me on the cliff at the Montage and surprise me with the room and massage but due to the food poisoning, it had to be altered.. but I wouldn’t have it any other way… it was perfect. I feel like I am in heaven right now… and the feeling that I have is amazing and I never want it to go away.
My gorgeous ring. (Aaron actually showed me this ring and I told him it was ugly a while ago. BAHAHAHAH)
So around 3:15 is when my sickness kicks back in and I am dreading to go get a massage. I am so happy but I feel like crap that I am torn but I sucked it up and went. The massage was nice but I just couldn’t wait to see my now fiancé. We go back to the room because I wasn’t feeling well and relaxed. We had a dinner reservation at the Studio and since I have not thrown up since the morning, I felt like it was okay to eat there. I decided on a 6 course meal and Aaron got a 3 course. Everything was very good until around the 3rd-4th course… The halibut was tasty but eating it slowly, the sick feeling was starting to come back but I kept thinking its only 3 more courses to go and I CAN DO IT! My 4th meal was venison and I took one bite.. looked at Aaron and said “I can’t do it anymore.” We were able to get the rest of the food to go and they even put in a nice bread and candy for us. It was amazing service. Aaron wanted to walk around on the beach but I needed to get back to the room ASAP. $136 meal flushed down the toilet… :(. The rest of the night we stayed in the room and watched TV. I also took a nice hot bath which helped me have a good night sleep.

I woke up at around 4 am with a bad headache again and I tried my best to sleep it off. I woke up again around 6 am and decided we are going to enjoy this resort and I am going to really suck it up! We got room service for breakfast, I got a white omelette and Aaron got french toast.. we only ate half of it and decided to get in as much as we could since check out was at 12pm. We started by walking along the beach and looking at the tide pools. I saw crabbies :)
We set is camera phone on a rock and took this photo. <3
We then headed back up to our room and go to the pool
We then walked around to the main entrance and took more pictures there and then heading back to the room and I took a bath and by 12pm we were done with our dream mini vacation.
I am so happy it is hard to explain but I cannot wait to marry him and spend the rest of my life with him.
is amazing! I love this book!
I’ve read it several times… I know… I’m an addict.
I can’t wait for the movie to come out. Hopefully they choose good looking people.
one of the most strong and inspirational person in my life was my grandma. She has been through things I couldn’t even imagine dealing with. An arranged marriage, 10 children, two died when they were kids, left Vietnam the day Saigon fell and had to start fresh in a country that was foreign to her.
Her kids grew up to be successful, started families of their own and blessed my grandma with 20 grand kids, 10 boys and 10 girls.
My sister and I would go over to our grandma’s house everyday after school. Even though my grandma didn’t know how to speak english or understand it, she would sit with my sister and I and watch Baywatch. She thought Mitch Buchannon was “dep trai”. Whenever I was hungry, my grandma would always make me com ruoc, and roll it up so I can hold it and eat it. She had very long hair which she kept in a bun and sometimes would let me comb it when I was little.
I’m writing my memories about her in my blog because I never want to forget.
I love you and will miss you ba ngoai.
