My fiancé, Brady, arranged a night for me and my closest friends to have a small get together! My best friend called me up and said, "Hey, let's have a girl's night out!" So, we all went to dinner and watched movies. Well, one of Brady's friends showed up at my door late that night with a letter, a box, and an iPod. He told me, "Read the letter and watch the first video on the iPod, but DO NOT skip ahead!" I did exactly what he said.

Brady made a video with instructions to open the gift box and to watch out for the next "clue." I opened the box; it was a beautiful black dress with shoes. I was completely confused, and my friends all acted innocent, as if they had no idea what was going on. Well, as confused as I was, we all went to bed.

My friends came into my room and woke me up at 5:30 am the next morning. They gave me the next clue and told me that we needed to go to Starbucks. I dragged myself out of bed and we sipped on coffee for a while. As we were talking and drinking coffee, one of my friends got a text message. She told me that she received another clue and that we had to leave immediately. We started driving and we ended up at the airport. They said we were picking someone up. I was so confused!

When we arrived at the airport, they said, "Well, we've been lying." They handed me another letter from Brady. The envelope had cash, an address and a plane ticket to New York! All that the letter said was to watch the 2nd video on the iPod when I was on the airplane. I boarded the plane and said goodbye to all of my friends. I watched the video and it instructed me to take a cab to the address listed on the letter. When I reached this destination, it said that I should view the 3rd video.

I landed in New York, got a cab, and headed to the address listed; it was a beautiful hotel in Time Square! I watched the 3rd video on the sidewalk of Time Square. It instructed me to go to the front desk of the hotel, where they would give me a key to the room. He also said to watch the last video when I got to the room. Following instructions, I went to the front desk and they gave me a key to the room. I opened the door to the hotel room and he had our favorite songs playing. I was absolutely in shock at this point!

I collapsed on the bed and watched the next video. He gave me the address for the final destination and told me to wear the black dress that I received the night prior! I took a long, hot shower, put on my new dress, and took a cab to the mysterious address, which was Tavern on the Green in Central Park. I got out of the cab and entered the restaurant, and there he was waiting for me! I was so surprised and beside myself! Needless to say, we had an amazing dinner and afterwards we went for a walk in Central Park. Finally, he led me to the ice skating rink. We ended up resting on a bench right outside of the rink. This is the spot where he proposed; it was perfect!
