Totally Frenched Out

And they lived happily ever after

Even though I am mega uber busy, I still had time to eek out a post for y'all. You guys remember my Valentine's Day surprise? Well, I might have left a teensy, weensy part out:

So let's see, where were we? Oh, that's right, stopped at the bottom of the Eiffel tower so I could take a few pictures. As I was taking them, C started tugging on my coat. I was all "Dude, look at this view! I need to take a million pictures!", until C finally said "SAM!" with a note of urgency in his voice.
At which point I finally turned around and saw him down on bended knee. He did not waste any time, going straight to the point by saying "Veux-tu m'epouser?" After a moment of shock in which time seemed to stand still, I said a big fat OUI. How could I say Non to the man who went to extreme lengths to combine three of the things I love most? It was almost a surreal feeling - there I was, on a boat in the middle of the Seine, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, getting proposed to. That sh*t only happens in movies!

We sat there with ridiculous grins on our faces for a few minutes, but since you're not really supposed to stop moving on the Seine, it was soon time to fire up the boat again. But not before C busted out the bottle of Champagne and the macarons he had snuck onto the boat:
Looking back at my pictures now, I have to smile at this view - what a perfect image for our life to come:And then we really did make our way back to Bastille, all the while watching the sunset over Paris:

You are getting to be known for your pranks. If this one isn't true today, let it be one day soon.

As far as surprises go, this announcement is not much of a surprise. I don't think anyone who read the original post had any doubts whatsoever that he proposed to you on Valentines day! Congratulations!!!

Can this really be a poisson d'avril? Or are you seriously messin' with our minds?

I guess only time (24 hours) will tell...

Is this true or is it another April Fool's joke?! If it is true, then CONGRATULATIONS! :D

KSAM I hope this is true and not an April Fool's Day joke...

But if it is C would be a fool not to ask you ;-) You guys seem perfect for each other. I'm sure if this is a joke he is surely thinking about it!

Wodnerful post, and lovely pictures. Kinda reminds me of this one:

But I won't make the mistake of calling you to congratulate you on April 1st again. 2010 was when I learnt my lesson :).

All the same, I _wish_ this were true. He is a good catch indeed!

Important question folks: if this were true, why would KSam not have posted a pic of the ring itself?

I'm with you, Animesh. No ring photo? No dice!

Hmmm. Not sure if I should believe it when I see the other comments. But that C is a very romantic fellow. I wouldn't put it past him. He's a catch at any rate.

I'm going to post "congratulations!" because I hope it's true! I think you and C are wonderful together, and I love how happy he makes you. if it is a poisson d'avril, that's okay too I guess, but I hope you guys really are engaged!

There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.

Or something like that.

Hey---- Like Animesh says- where's the photo! -- no photo- no proof!

I'm with everyone else in hoping it's true, even though it's April Fool's and you did this last year- I would really like it if you guys got married!! : )
