The most surprising gift that I ever got was an engagement ring for my 15th birthday. I asked for it, but I had no idea that he would actually buy it for me. I mean I had only known the guy for a month and goes to JCPenny's and buys me a ring. The big sweet lug head. Needless to say, that wedding never happen.

My most surprising gift was just a card with a picture in it, but it was surprising because it came from my grandfather, whom I had never met. It was on my tenth birthday, and it came with a little letter explaining that he would like to get to know me but just hadn't had a chance. I still don't really know him, but he did come to my high school graduation. It was really strange and awkward, but also nice just to have a face to put with the stories I had heard about him.

It sounds like he is not very good at things like that, but is trying his best and loves you a whole lot. God bless him.

My engagment ring was probably my most surprising gift. I knew we would get married, but you are never ready for that moment. It is so shocking and it's such a happy feeling. I should have figured out what he was getting ready to do because he was nervous all night and acting funny. He's a big lug.:)

That is so very special. I have never experienced a real engagement. I could not imagine how my nerves would be. I know that I would be shaking and crying.

I actually didn't cry and it surprises me now that I didn't. I teared up though.:)

To be picked up in a limo to go to San Franciso to a show. San Franciso is 2.5 hour drive and I knew we where going and to get dressed up, but when the limo pulled up that was the fun part. The champane that went along with it was also fun.

Limosine rides are very cool and lots of fun. Especially when it is a special occassion or you are just hanging out with friends and/or family.

Engagement ring @ 15 years of age? WOW you special thing!!!! I got my engagement ring (I must say it was a surprise too) when I was 30 LOL You know I don't have a particular thing that is more surprising than the other. The time I get surprised is when my husband does something out of the ordinary which I don't expect at all... like unexpected breakfast in bed, unexpected gifts, unexpected $$ to do some shopping, unexpected trip to someplace. All of these are very special to me and I love him for making me feel special.

It sounds like you have very very special marriage. It is nice to settle down with the one that we know we were meant to be with for the reat of our lives. This is something that I would really love to experience.

The most surprising gift I ever received was breakfast in bed, the first morning I was in Arizona, back in February. I thought it was the sweetest thing in the world when my Sweetheart brought me breakfast in bed.

OOOOOh, that is so sweet, I think I am getting a toothache. No one ever brought me breakfast in bed. I suddenly feel short changed, but good for you. He sounds like a keeper.

I also got a ring at 15!!!!! That was a huge surprise. I had it for years. We didn't get married either, but we did go out again later on in life, and he surprised me again by having a star named for me for Christmas one year. Both gifts were surprises and very cool.
