    Upper Deck her.

    and when you're cleaning it up together, tell her "You know, we could be like this for the rest of our lives...."

    Whatever you do, don't call her "Ma'am."

    Run by the liquor store and Spencers. The rest should take care of itself.

    Do it at home - her home, your home, doesn't matter. But it should be somewhere private.

    That way she can be emotional without worrying how others around her - besides you, of course - will react. She can laugh, scream, cry, etc.

    Provide good champagne. I recommend Veuve Cliquot.

    Be prepared for one thing, though: Contrary to what some of the female posters here would have you believe, engagement sex will not come for at least three hours after the diamond is on her finger. Trust me on this one. I was engaged three times, and it went down exactly the same each time.

    Before she's ready to seal the deal carnally, she will call every living female she knows to them The Good News. Mom is first, followed by sisters, BFFs, co-workers, beauticians, etc.

    You can do nothing about this ... just let her make the calls and appear supportive.

    PS - No Colgate or Crest on engagement night, m'kay?

    dools - good point. i like booze and she likes spencers, but since we both work at a paper i'm hoping for ideas leaning that way.
