Whisked Away

Well, I know today's post should be Vegas 3, but that will have to wait for a little later because I've got something else to talk about.

Last night after work I went straight to the gym with my friend Stephanie. We had an awesome workout and then she brought me back home. Geoff was standing out front doing something with the mercedes and I thought that was a little weird. I got out of the car and he told me to stop and close my eyes. I complied.

He then told me to get in the car. I made him promise we weren't going anywhere too public since I was still in my gym clothes and he told me I was fine (although he did bring along my deordorant and perfume). He then had me plot an address on his iPhone and give him directions to that address.

It lead us to a super neat park in Draper where they have built basketball and a tennis court above a water collection tank. Out of the trunk he pulled a blanket and a fantastic picnic dinner. We sat in the sun and ate and laughed. Then he pulled me close and told me that with our anniversary coming up and two wonderful years coming to an end, he wanted to commit me to three more years with him. At this point he pulled out a ring box and opened it up to reveal my wedding ring (which he had taken away a few days earlier under the guise that I was being punished for leaving it at home and not wearing it) which he had taken to the jeweler and had it re-dipped in rhodium plating. It is so sparkly. Just like the day he first gave it to me. (I told him I'd give him all of my years as he slipped it on).
Then we played a little tennis until I couldn't move anymore (I had just come from the gym!).

Then he had me plot the next coordinates on the iPhone. However, the address he had written down wasn't yielding any results as I search for it. I kept trying to put in the address when all the sudden we pulled into the Ikea parking lot. Geoff had made up the address to keep me busy from realizing where he was taking me! It worked!

We shopped around Ikea for a little while and then went over to the RC Willey outlet as well. We didn't find quite what we were looking for, but love to furniture shop together, so we had a great time.

Finally, when I thought we were going home, Geoff skipped the turn-off to our house and drove into Provo canyon. He drove us about 15 minutes into the canyon to a little parking lot off the road that we used to go to when we were dating (what, with roomates privacy is a precious commodity). He then pulled out his computer and a redbox movie he had rented - and two big bowls of popcorn with spray butter (our nightly snack). We got cozy in the back seat of the merc and watch Push while eating our popcorn and enjoying eachother's company.

He then took me home. It was such a spontaneous, romantic, wonderful evening. I love him so much and know that he is the perfect man for me.
Love you, Geoff.
