Days 3 and 4

Holy Crap...Big News!!!!


Well yesterday John and I spent the day shopping near the Arc de Triumph, were Kathryn found heaven on earth, no not Disney Land, but Sephora, where she bought a hair straightner that also acts as a blow dryer....best thing EVER. John bought two dress shirts and a tie, and Kathryn bought some some shirts. We also had to do a stop over at the outside cafe mid-shop for a glass of wine/beer. We were so tired from the shopping that we barely made it to the dinner that we had booked. However, we did get there, and had a fab meal, John, moaning throughout from its greatness, and Kathryn exteriencing Creme Brule France style was definitely memorable. As it was friday, the Effiel Tower sparkles every so often as opposed to it regular light show. We were both able to catch it for a brief second before it went back to normal. We rushed up to our room to see it again, but no luck. As it was only 45 min to Kathryn's 25th b-day, John stated that he would give her her birthday present a bit early, but that he had to write the in the card still. So he went outside to write in the card and to keep his eye on the Effiel Tower to see if it started to sparkle again. A few minutes later he yelled "it's sparkling" and Kathryn ran out to look at it and found John on one knee holding a ring....im pretty sure my first words were 'are you kidding me' however I was able to blurt out yes. So I guess this is our offically annoucement via blog, and John and I are engaged!! After that, we went out for a drink as both of our nerves were shot, and called a few people (sorry if you didnt get a call, long distance charges are atrocious).

This morning, we woke up to Kathryn being old...today is my 25th birthday. We're going to spend the day shopping at some vintage clothing shops and have a cruise dinner. Tomorrow we're off to EuroDisney for another 5 days.

I guess that's it for now!

See everyone soon,

Love John and Kathryn

Congratulations to both of you. Sounds much better than " so, you want to get married?" And Kat said yes? Doesn't she realize the family she is getting closer to? Oh well, again Congratulations to you both!
