My Dream Engagement

I had a dream about this and when I woke up I decided this is really how I want it to happen.

First off, my boyfriend asked me to go get him something from another room so that he could get my father's phone number out of my phone without me knowing. He then proceeded to call my father and tell him that he needed to speak to him in private about something. Him and my father set up a time when no one else was home for him to come by so they could talk. He explained to my father that he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and asked my father for my hand in marriage. My father willingly agreed.

My boyfriend then got with my best friend and arranged what was going to happen on Christmas morning. Early Christmas morning my boyfriend came over to spend Christmas with my family. He had set up for my best friend and his girlfriend to show up with my present a little bit later. We all opened presents and had a nice morning and when we were done, he told me that I had one more present but that it would be here in a few minutes. The doorbell rang and he asked everyone to come outside so that we could see my present. At the door was my best friend, his girlfriend, and his dog and he told my boyfriend that my gift was in the car. My boyfriend walked to the car and pulled out this beautiful little golden retriever puppy. I have always wanted a golden retriever but was unable to get a dog until I moved out of my parents home. He gave me the puppy and told me that he named her Jerzey (a name that I really liked for a dog). I was in so much shock I was speechless and then he told me that the gift was not over yet and to read the tag on her collar. The front of the tag said Jerzey. The back of the tag was the surprise. On the back of the tag it had my first name with his last name and his address. When I looked up he was down on one knee with my whole family around and my best friend there as well.

He said "Liz I love you with all my heart. I want you to be happy for the rest of your life and I want to be there to be happy with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I have one simple question to ask you; your answer will hopefully make me the happiest man alive and will be the best Christmas present that I have ever received. Liz, I want you to be my wife, will you marry me?"

I began to cry and just kept nodding my head up and down crying/whispering "yes" over and over. He got up and put the ring on my finger, gave me a kiss, and said "I love you" while holding me tight. I was finally able to speak clearly and said "I love you too". The whole time I had the puppy in my arms licking my tears off my face.

This was the most amazing dream I have ever had, I woke up with tears in my eyes. I told him about it and I doubt he does it like this if/when he decides to propose, but I thought it was beautiful.
