I had the most perfect weekend with the most perfect guy ever.
We went to a work party (his) at the Mondrian...this place is a hotel with restaurants and clubs...very ritzy and very surreal. The party started in the white room and literally everything was white. There was an open bar where I enjoyed a couple Tom Collins which after sipping several other people's drinks I found that the Tom Collins was the way to go.
I was quite the social butterfly, talking to many of Evan's co-workers, joking with them, and whatnot. It was nuts, I'm never this talkative.
So after a few hours and me camping out for appetizers coming through the door we were moved to the Red room and true to it's name it was all red. The thumping techno music was the perfect background to the random girl painting in the room and then the dancer who pranced on a glowing table and was doing handstands and backbends and dancing on the ceiling.
We spent the night on the tab of the company (thanks!) and we woke up, ate some delicious breakfast and went to out next destination which was secret.
It turned out to be the Hyatt in Scottsdale. It was GORGEOUS. Sprawling lush grass, full grown palms, acres of pools and spas, and extravagant rooms.
We pranced around the Hyatt for awhile. Literally, they had an ipod tour that we listened and followed. We found a pond, and then the massive amounts of koi, we took a dip in the hot tub under cascading aqueducts, and went to see the new disney film The Princess and the Frog. A good film, but not the best in Disney history.
Then we came back and got dressed for dinner and went to this SWB, South West Bistro where we sat in front of a fire and enjoyed chicken and asparagus. After the Bistro I was led to something very cool that we saw on the tour...a gondola ride!
Real gondolas from Venice with Gondoliers that were hired for their wonderful voices and not for their driving gondola skills. They were trained on the job. So, it was dark and the lake was uber quiet and so peaceful. We hopped in a gondola that was covered in tea lights and given a blanket to cuddle under. So we were paddled to the middle of this lake and our gondolier started to sing an italian love song about this guy who loved his girls beautiful lips and just wanted to kiss them all the time. So in the middle of the song Evan gets up and gets on one knee and he proposes! Very short, very sweet, "Sara, will you marry me?" and I'm freaking out saying "Of course!"
It was very romantic.
We got back into the dock and we went inside and sat down got a drink and listened to some romantic flamenco and Spanish guitar and we retired back to the room and we relaxed.
Then we came home today.
I'm in ecstasy with the happiness factor right now.
and we are in the process of buying a house too.
Hello Future, here I come!
