On a cold winter night just before I was about to head back to Georgia for the holidays, I told Lauren that I had gotten her a Christmas present. I then instructed her that what I got her was in the bathroom and she would have to get up off the couch to come take a look at her awesome present. Once she got into the bathroom I told her that her present is in the bathtub behind the shower curtain and that she would need to slowly open the shower curtain to take a look. (As a side note- We had just moved into an apartment together and the shower head we had was an absolute horror; it sprinkled everything but you while you tried to shower.) So she carefully opens the shower curtain, and before her there is a brand new shiny silver shower head with a pretty red bow on it. At this point I can sense the tension growing. I can hear it in her mind thinking "he honestly got me a shower head for Christmas?!" So then to edge her on a little bit, I said "L, aren't you going to try it out? It has 5 different settings the box says." As I can see her start to get a bit perturbed at this point I say "I got the old one under the sink here if you want me to put it back on?" Then while she turns the water on and checks out the new shower head, I pretend that I am digging under the sink for the old shower head and pull out her real Christmas present. As she turns the water back off and turns back around towards me, I showed her the ring and asked my little L "Will you marry me?" Pièce de résistance... She said yes!
