kristenjo (#92) (03/08) While she was out to dinner with her parents and her siblings her SO surprised her by showing up! They’re in a LDR and weren’t planning on seeing each other that weekend! After dinner they headed back to her house, and her SO told her not to go to her room right away. Since it was the 8th of the month she thought he wanted to lay in her room and look at the stars on her ceiling, since the first time they said “I love you” was laying there on the 8th of July. He covered her eyes and brought her into the room, where he had written “Will you marry me” on the wall with glow in the dark stars! Then he asked her if she would him the honor of marrying him, and her parents had caught the whole thing on video!
jennylouwhoo (#171) (03/11) Her SO asked her to marry him!
mcgoo (#203) (03/11) At 2am her SO wished her a happy birthday, at 5am, he asked if he could give her her birthday card, but she was still half asleep! An hour later he couldn’t take it anymore, he woke her up and gave her the card, in the card he asked her to marry him, and then he gave her a ring!
araneidae (#232) (03/11) While she was lying on her bed looking at job postings on her laptop her SO came over beside the bed. He was just staring at her SO she asked if he wanted to look at job postings with her. He shook his head no, so she asked if he just wanted to keep staring at her. He nodded and then slowly started closing her laptop when she realized he was down on one knee holding a ring!
butterflylove (#124) (03/12) Her SO proposed on vacation, and had chartered a boat two days later at sunset for a wedding!
mnp (#134) (03/12) mnp nicknamed the way her SO proposed “Jersey Style.” He proposed while they were in a hot tub, he pulled out the ring and said, “BAM!”
MisfitPrincess (#83) (03/16) For their four year anniversary her SO took her to the same restaurant they went to for their first date. After dinner her SO asked her if he wanted to go an arcade/putt-putt place across town to goof off and have a few drinks! After a round of putt-putt and a drink her SO got down on one knee, and asked if MisfitPrincess would do him the honor of marrying him!
CaliHoya (#201) (03/17) Her SO wanted to propose before they left for France, because he didn’t want to worry about losing the ring or having it stolen while they were there, he almost wasn’t able to, but the ring arrived the day they were leaving! When it got there he asked CaliHoya if she wanted him to wait to propose, and she said it was up to him. He said he might throw up if he had to wait any longer, and he wanted to enjoy their time in France engaged, so he got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him!
ThingsThatShine (#53) (03/17) Her SO took her to a beautiful arboretum, and as soon as she got out of the car he handed her a black ring box that had a glass shamrock in it, and a note from a leprechaun saying that he had stolen her ring! While they were walking around he was hiding little sparkly green boxes for her to find with notes from the leprechaun. Finally he told her to sit on a bench and gave her a book to read while he went to talk to a guy. The book was hollowed out and inside was a leprechaun figure, plastic gold coins, more glass shamrocks, one real sixpence from 1913, and a note from the leprechaun saying that he had sold the ring on craigslist! When her SO came back he said the guy he was talking to was very short and dressed funny, then he gave her a storybook he had made, took her to a patch of evergreen trees, and got down on one knee and proposed!
rebeccab21 (#222) (03/17) At her SO’s birthday/St. Patrick’s day party she brought out his birthday cake, and after he blew out the candles he took the cake from her, dropped to one knee, and asked her to marry him in front of about 40 of their friends and family!
shirasagi (#107) (03/18) shirasagia and her SO went to France for spring vacation. After spending three days in Paris they went to Versaille. While they were out in the parterre near the Fountain of Latona she noticed a couple trying to take a picture of themselves, so she offered to take one. Then her SO asked the couple if they would mind taking a few pictures for them, and suddenly he was down on one knee with a beautiful vintage ring sparkling away in the afternoon sunlight!

oneheartoneway (#112) (03/29) Her SO wanted to make her proposal fun and special, so he came up with the idea for engagemukkah, a Hanukkah like engagement! Every night gave her a special gift, and on the fourth night he put the most beautiful ring on her finger, and asked her to be his wife!
mmmk (#30) (03/31) She went over to her SO’s house and let herself in. On the floor she noticed silver picture frames staggered in a line going in the direction of his bedroom. Each frame had a “first” engraved on it along with a picture. There were all of their firsts: their first date, first kiss, first time they said I love you. By the time she got to his room she had a stack of picture frames, and he was waiting to take her somewhere! They went out to his car, and there was one more first. It was the first time proposing! While mmmk was crying tears of joy, her SO got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him.

Her SO took the ring from their dog, got on one knee, and asked Lacelibs to marry him!

They finally had one this weekend so they planned a trip to a wildlife preserve where a bunch of caches were hidden. When they found the second one she went to sign the log book, and her SO was rummaging through the box. After a minute or two he said, “honey, look what I found!” When she looked up her SO was holding an open ring box, and he asked her to marry him!
MsB_to_bee (#53) (04/07) Her SO had been visiting her for spring break. On their last night her SO made dinner, and afterwards they were relaxing on the balcony.

TriciaAndDazzling (#126) (04/08) It was around 3 o’clock in the morning, and TriciaandDazzling was still running around baking, making goodie bags, and getting ready for her daughter’s birthday party the next day. Her SO told her to sit down for a few minutes because she was running herself ragged! They were sitting on the couch together and her SO asked her how much she loved him. She spread her arms wide, and said about that much. Her SO asked if she was sure (duh!) and then started kissing her.

Rysgirl (#98) (04/14) She went out to dinner with her SO, and then came home to walk their furbabies. After their walk they got in their comfy clothes and got ready to watch their shows on Tivo.

After the song he told CupcakeGurl how much he loves her, got down on one knee, and proposed!
BlissfullyBlessed (#133) (04/14) When she called her SO on Friday she could tell he was upset. He told her that he had gone to pick up her custom engagement ring, and when he got there it was all wrong. It looked nothing like the CAD drawings, and it was even in the wrong gold. The jeweler said he could either take the heirloom diamond back, or wait for him to redesign the ring, so her SO took the diamond back. Saturday morning they met up with her future in laws, and her SO’s mom told her how upset she was to hear what happened, and asked if they could take them to a couple other jewelers in town. BlissfullyBlessed found the perfect setting while they were out. Later that day when she was getting ready to go out to dinner her SO went to take out the trash. She had no idea that his parents met him with the ring! He had given them the diamond and they had gone back to the jeweler and had it set in the setting she loved! When they were out at dinner she had the surprise of her life when he proposed!
MissPatience (#66) (04/20) While they were walking to the library at their university he was looking for a place for them to sit since MissPatience had just gotten some Starbucks. When they sat down they cuddled for a minute, and then her SO asked. “Why do you love me?” MissPatience answered, “You know that feeling, when you climb in your own bed, where you’re comfy and safe and all warm and fuzzy. That’s why.” Then her SO told her, “MissPatience, I love you so much, more than the stars in the sky. You’re the sun in my day, the light of my life. These have been the best 5.5 years of my life. And I’m gonna ask you to marry me.” He took off her promise ring, pulled the engagement ring out of his bag, dropped down on one knee, and asked her to marry him!
pinkgreenandyellow (#126) (04/21) Her SO decided that they should go out for lunch and ice cream, he was driving all over town looking for the perfect place to go with a scenic view! The place he wanted to go was too crowded, so he kept looking, until he decided on a spot they had found recently and that had become a favorite. It was a hill of shells overlooking the intersection of two rivers. From the beach they could see all of the boat docks, and sailboats, and the view of downtown. pinkgreenandyellow was getting nervous so she hugged her SO tight while he told how much he loves her and all of these wonderful things about her, and then he pulled a ring out of his pocket and asked, “Will you marry me?”
vintagestef (#180) (04/22) Their day started out completely normally, but later that day they were headed to Morgan Lake, which has an adorable spot her and her SO like to go to, but when they got there her SO said they had to leave because one of his coworkers that he dislikes was there! Her SO was upset and said the coworker had “ruined it!” They left that spot and drove to Cheaha, and parked at a scenic overlook. It was cold, overcast, and drizzling at that point, and when they sat down vintagestef asked her SO to switch places with her because of the wind. Her SO started panicking, and patting down his pockets. He said he thought he lost his car keys and asked vintagestef to look next to her in case they had fallen out of his pocket. When she looked down she saw a little black box holding the most amazing ring she had ever seen! She turned back to see her SO on one knee, and he said, “Stefanie, I’ve loved you since the moment I met you. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. You mean the world to me. Will you marry me?”
