Romance in the air?
Back on Sept 6, Justin (the Varmit's boyfriend of two years) asked for permission to marry Marisa. I replied that Momma and I would be very happy for them both.
This was pretty much a "hush-hush deal", because he wanted to surprise her when he "popped the question". It was about two days later when I told Momma about it. She was about to scalp me for not telling her sooner!
Within minutes of her finding out, she was on the phone with Justin.... offering her assistance on anything he needed. As it was, he needed help with "the ring". A couple days later, they got together at the local jewelry store and proceeded to "order THE RING"...which was custom made in New York.
To"set up the proposal"...he started several weeks in advance by giving Marisa a certain color rose, then a couple of days later, giving her some little trinket in the same color. (Momma could recite each week, rose color, and trinket ) The one that stands out in my mind is the Orange Rose Week...he gave her candy corn as the trinket.
Then, the big night came on Oct 12...... Under the pretext of us giving Justin a Birthday Dinner at Ruth Crisp Steak House.... they went there and he "popped the question" by having the desert plate spelling it out....along with all the previous weeks rose petals represented, and a white rose with the ring in it.
