elle_z (140) – 11/04 – After arriving home from a hair appointment, full of waiting-bee-nerves she found a ring box was sitting on the couch…and started crying immediately. Shaking, mouth agape, Elle_Z’s SO (now FI) gestured towards the box and told her to open it. In it was a slip of paper which read “let’s play a game…” He then sent her a goose chase to the laundry room, bathroom, closet and finally the bedroom. She all but ran to the room, opened the door, saw her fiancé standing there. He got down on one knee and with tears in his eyes, asked her to marry him.
JenBabe (19) -11/4/12 – She and her FI went to the historic Grove Park Inn. After spending all day at the Spa together they went out to the terrace to see the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains before dinner. There, he got down on one knee and presented her with the most perfect ring. Before we left town he took her to lunch, and waiting upstairs at a table were my Mom and Grandparents.

BlondeBee (157) – 11/10/12 – It started with a walk in their favorite park, where they often go when it’s a nice day out. He suggested they get outside, since it was sunny and 65. They got about 30 minutes into the walk, through gorgeous tree-lined paths, and came across a stream. Always the explorer, he said “Those are the kind of rocks that have fossils in them!” Our bee suggested they climb down and take a look. They cracked open some rocks, but didn’t find anything. They were standing on a little island in the middle of a stream, in the middle of these gorgeous woods, all alone. He pulled her close, and started saying how he’s never been happier, and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Shaking bad at this point, she thought she was going to fall over. He got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him.
LiliKitty (66) – 11/10/12 – They we re at the Shedd Aquarium in downtownChicagofor a bit of tourist activity with two lifelong friends in fromWisconsin. While taking pictures of the fish, her SO knelt down to tie his shoe. Or she thought he was tying his shoe! He said to her “LiliKitty, will you hold something for me?” The reality of the moment struck her and gave her friends a look to find they were recording the moment! He asked “Will you marry me?” and according to her friends, she said “Of course!”
a_corundum (53)-11/14/12 (announced to the bee, proposal earlier)- he FI proposed on a trip to Sweden on the last day they were there.

Jpalm13 (35) – 11/15/2012 Her FI took her to a new and hip restaurant in the downtown for dinner after work. After coming back home, FI requested she fix his resume for him so she sat on the couch to start. FI came over, got on one knee and asked if shed like to trade in my other ring. She’d been wearing the ring he got her last Christmas on my ring finger while waiting for him to propose with the engagement ring they ordered. After she said she’d love to, he presented her with a spectacular ring and proposed! Proposal story here with ring pics http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/take-35-off-the-list
