    Also he parents knew it was coming, but weren't sure of the exact date he would actually propose so we stopped at their house on the way home from Christmas Eve dinner.

    Our parents and family he told most of them he was planning on doing it and asked my mom to record it, I had no idea, but then after he proposed I started to see some of the things he did to surprise me. He did a good job keeping it secret from me and so did all of them.

    Well that's a bit tricky... tried to call my parents first but neither of them answered. So, my bestie was the 1st person I was able to tell.
