Ok, my plan is a photo story. On the day I decide to do this we are going to plan to go out to eat. Halfway to the restaurant I am going to "forget" my wallet. So when we get back to her house I am going to reach under the car seat and hand her a package. I will tell her its a late V-day gift and to go ahead and open it while I am searching for my wallet.

The photo books first page will have a sticky note that says "Read each page carefully before you get out of the car".

Here is the photo book she will see:

http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=0AZsmjJi1ZNWLpY&notag=1

The last page will have a sticky not that says "find me inside....I have a pen and the package"

So what do you think?

Weird, its working for me. Maybe shutterfly had a small hiccup when you tried. Try it again.

Anyone else having issues seeing this?

That works - very nice! I''m sure she''ll love the trip down memory lane. Its great how you transition into the "huh, what''s going on?" mode talking about her friend helping you out, your trip to Houston, etc. She''s gonna be mighty curious at that point... Thank god she doesn''t have to wait for the images to load like I did!


I''m not sure if its too late to make any edits - and if it is, these are really no big deal - but the natural grammar policeman in me caught a few typos.

On pg. 2, "talked to much" instead of "talked too much"

On pg. 4, "your stuck" instead of "you''re stuck"

Good luck, man!

My spelling and grammar are both horrible, and I am 27 lol.

I think she would find it suspicious that I made zero grammar errors :) Having the grammar errors in it makes it that more personal hehe.

Yup, and they're not like you're spelling her name wrong or anything.
I doubt she'll even notice though the tears, etc. FYI, I'm 27 too, and proposing in 2 days (V-day, followed by a surprise 5-day vacation/celebration in Amsterdam
). Good luck!

I''m actually crying....it''s that sweet.
I don''t even know you!
It is hands down one of the best proposals ever.

One thing though...what if she tries to insist that she''ll pay for the meal? I only ask because that''s something I would probably do if my boyfriend forgot his wallet.

That is soooooooo sweet!!! I too thought about the her offering to pay, because I''d also do that if it was me and my guy. So if that does happen, just remind her that it''s a hefty ticket if you get pulled over without it! And plus you''ll need it if you want to have a drink with dinner. :) Tell her you''ll be quick about it and look! here''s this late v-day gift to keep her occupied while you go find it .

Really though, it is sooooooo great! I got tears too looking at it! Perfect!

Wow, seems like I came up with a great idea :) Judging by the way everyone is reacting I say this is going to work out really well! Much better then my Scavenger hunt idea

I also thought about her offering to pay, but the drinking thing is a great excuse to turn around and get it. I just hope she opens it while waiting in the car.

Well she said yes last night!

Everything went as plan!! She cried a little :)

She also couldn''t stop staring at the ring and wanted to bring the book with her everywhere afterward! So I think we can put this idea in the books as a A+ idea!!
