I have been on the bee for a few months now and realized I hadn’t shared our engagement story yet!
I had the suprise of my life on New Years Eve day this year! We are huge Chicago Bears fans and we were in Chicago for New Years. We hung out downtown ate a very nice dinner and were spending wonderful us time together. Before we left the city B suggested we go to Soldier Field to walk around since we had never been there together. The stadium was closed for the season already but I said why not! We circled the stadium twice in very windy weather taking pictures and having a great time. B then walks up to one of the side doors and said he heard from someone this door is open sometimes. To my suprise it opens right up and we then get our own private tour of the whole stadium by one of the event coordinators for soldier field! It was amazing to be the only people in there! We got to see the locker rooms and all of the behind the scenes things that no one gets to see ever. Lastly we got to walk out onto the field the same way the players do through the tunnel. It was amazing and I was just so excited to be there I had no idea what was coming next! The event coordinator took my camera and told us to get out on the field and she’d take pictures of us… next thing I know B grabs my hands and gets down on one knee and proposes!! It was the best moment of my life! (besides the day I met him of course) We have a video of the proposal the coordinator took on his phone and some photos on my camera as well. I can’t wait to marry the man of my dreams next May!!
