Even as we rode the elevator, my mind was buzzing: Was this it? Was this the proposal? And my logical side screamed NO! Of course not! I justified that this was just something special to commemorate us seeing Phantom on stage for the first time together - a callback to our first date. Something to commemorate the occasion. He opened the door, and through the doorway I saw this:
Balloons! Any room with balloons inside is no ordinary room. This was the moment that I knew. It was a callback to all the times he had asked me to dances, using balloons.

|October 10, 2006 - the same bedroom, literally filled with balloons to ask me to Homecoming.|

|The future Mr. and Mrs. Peters :)|
|My future sister-in-law!!|

|There WAS cheesecake! And chocolates!|

It was an awesome, awesome way to get engaged. I wish we could have stayed in the hotel longer! JW had bought it just for that one night, which made it all the more special. I can't believe I got engaged in Times Square after seeing The Phantom of the Opera! I smile every time I look at my hand :)
We look forward to the wedding!!
|This is how excited we are!! :D|
Coming up: Our engagement party!
