The next day we went scuba diving. It was my first time, and I was nervous. Again I started thinking "What if he proposes underwater, and I get excited and forget how to breath and I suck up water. . . .What if I die before I even get to say YES?" As you know that did not happen either. After scuba diving I told myself again, "STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND ENJOY."

When the they wanted to film in our room after scuba diving I didn't think anything of it.There was no reason for me to change my clothes and get made up.

Eddie was outside on the deck opening clams and I was inside on the phone catching up with the kids. When I walked out to see what Eddie was up too, I had NO IDEA what was about to happen. I sat down next to him with wet hair, a ring around my face from the scuba mask, no makeup on, and started watching Eddie open clams.

When he handed me the second clam to open that clearly did not look the same you would think I would have known, but I didn't! In my mind I was expecting him to propose 15 times already, and it didn't happen. I was thinking (because I thought I had it all figured out) he would propose at dinner, on a sunset cruise, or on the beach. . .you know the typical fancy way. But that's not my Eddie, he is always surprising me with the unexpected. I was in shock when I opened up that clam -- and most of all I was truly surprised. In the end, he did it his way and I would have to say he was very creative.
