Most Romantic Moment: " I'd have to say my most romantic moment was when my husband proposed to me. We were at a little Chinese restauraunt where we had our first date. He took me to lunch and we were the only people there. This was the only time i've ever been surprised; he took me by completely by surprise and I am very inquisitive. He even waited 20 minutes for everyone to leave so that he knew we'd be alone."
