A Few Surprises for a Friend March 28, 2010

A Few Surprises for a Friend

My spring break has started and I’m in Florida for a few days — if you’re in the Orlando area, stop by Valencia Community College on Monday afternoon for my talk!

In the meantime, here’s something random and fun.

Friday was my friend Anne‘s birthday and her boyfriend Jaime decided to throw her a surprise party. Our college friends were there, along with her family and his.

I brought along a camera… and I added a few captions to the videos below:

It turns out that wasn’t the only surprise he had for her.

We all knew he was going to propose to her; they’ve been dating for a couple years now. Somehow, we managed to keep the secret from Anne until the time came…

Definitely a fun night for everyone 🙂

(Yeah, yeah, I know. “Merry” isn’t the correct spelling. We all figured we should just let the happy couple enjoy the night and we kept our mouths shut about it.)

    As sweet as that was, I have to know, is the cake Cakewreck material? I.e. did the bakery make that spelling mistake?

  • Now I’m all teary eyed. I’m such a hopeless romantic.
    Congratulations to the couple and thanks for sharing such a wonderful moment with us Hemant.

    I don’t even know them, and I got all teary eyed. Tell ’em strangers say GRATZ!

  • I’m very happy for them.

    Tears here also from both my girlfriend and I. And big smiles too during the duration of both videos. Thanks for the captions, Hemant.

    Congratulations to the happy couple! May they merry (verb) each other all their days together.

    Man, I love proposals. And I admire the guts of the person who is confident enough in the “yes” answer to have a big audience!

    Best wishes to the happy couple for a long and wonderful merriage!

    God, that was so romantic! He’s a keeper, hon. (Of course, it appears she knows that already.)

    That cake was absolutely sweet (pun intended) and I must be a sap because I didn’t even notice the spelling mistake.
