Brendan had told Lauren that they were going to be going out to dinner on Friday, March 2nd to Flemmings' Steak House because Brendan had won a gift certificate from work.
Lauren had been really wanting a Dyson Vacuum and before dinner when Brendan said he had a surprise for Lauren she was convinced her vacuum dreams were becoming a reality.
The pair got ready for dinner and before they were to leave Brendan asked Lauren to stay in the kitchen so he could retrieve her surprise from the garage. Lauren began to envision clean carpets when Brendan came in with a much smaller box than something a vacuum would fit in.
Brendan presented Lauren with a necklace that he told her she could wear to a charity event they would be attending the following evening. She was not to keen on this necklace because to be frankly honest it was an ugly necklace.
While Lauren stared and pondered whether she should tell Brendan her true feelings for the necklace, he went back into the garage.
Carmelo (Lauren and Brendan's oldest chocolate lab) came in from the garage wearing a white bow tie and distracted Lauren's gaze from that hideous necklace. Behind Melo came Brendan back to the kitchen with yet another small box.
Brendan dropped to won knee in the middle of the kitchen and asked Lauren to marry him.
Lauren was so excited and shocked she forgot to say anything until Brendan said, "Well...you haven't answered me". Of course you know what Lauren's answer was, but there was still a small part of her that was upset there was no vacuum ;)
Brendan then pulled out champagne and a big bouquet of roses. The texts, calls and Facebook messages began shortly after.
