My fiance and I are at Dragon*Con this weekend, a sci-fi fantasy convention akin to ComicCon. We’re kinda nerdy and it’s a ton of fun — a parade, lots of awesome costumes, and panels with people from some of our favorite tv shows.
Today, we went to a panel for Warehouse 13 that included Jaime Murray, one of my favorite actresses. The panel was hilarious, lots of laughter, and I really enjoyed myself.
At the end of the panel, after the Q&A, Jaime stood up and said “Are Rachel and Kim here? Can you stand up?” I’m Rachel, my fiance is Kim, and I was CONFUSED. I stood there, mouth gaping, trying to figure out what was going on. Jaime then said “Rachel, I have a question for you.” I looked at Kim and said “What did you do?” She just grinned.
Jaime then said something along the lines of “Will you marry Kim?” and the whole room (of like 1000 people) FREAKED OUT. I turned to look at Kim and found her down on one knee with the ring.
I said yes, of course and we kissed and it was awesome. We saw Jaime later and she oohed and aahhhed over my ring and asked us to take a picture with her later, which we did. It was pretty amazing.
Apparently Kim had gone to the autograph room while I was at the parade, claiming a “bathroom break,” and had asked Jaime to ask me. It was basically the best proposal ever.
The woman behind us got a video of the whole thing that she’s going to post and send to us tomorrow or Monday.
In the meanwhile, RING PIC:

Ahhh! That is like my dream proposal, but instead of Jaime Murray it would have to be David Tennant or Matt Smith. But at that point, I may just say yes to those guys instead of FI haha!
Congrats! The ring is beautiful too!
