    Holy survey!  Well, since I'm bored...

    How long did you date before you got engaged?
    About 3.5 years

    Did you get the ring you wanted?
    I didn't want any particular ring, or even a ring at all but I got a fabulous one.  :)

    Was the proposal a complete surprise?
    Absolutely.  We had had conversations about marriage of course, but hadn't put a time line on it.

    Do you wish you had a bigger/smaller diamond? If so How big or small?
    Nope.  This is what he picked out, and I never ever want a different one.

    Did you cry when he proposed?
    No real tears, but I welled up a little.

    Was the proposal romantic or creative? Explain.
    I thought we were celebrating my birthday.  I woke up to an envelope that said 'The Amazing Race.'  It told me to go to a certain location at a particular time.  It turned into a long scavenger hunt... long story short, it was very creative and romantic.  Couldn't ask for anything better.

    When do you want to go for your honeymoon?
    We're going to Maui for about a week and a half after the wedding.

    Are you buying his wedding band for him?
    Already bought it (he picked it out, of course).  Not that it matters, because we'll have joint bank accounts after the wedding.

    Have you gone over your original wedding budget?
    We're pretty well under it.  Woo hoo!

    What day of the year will your wedding be?
    June 26, 2010
