My first week on the waiting list and we are engaged!
We traveled to our alma mater (where we met) this weekend for a football game. A group of about 20 of our friends from school had come in from across the country for the game, so it was bound to be a good weekend!
About an hour before kickoff, he asked me to choose where I wanted to sit (we had a block of 20 seats). I told him I didn’t care – I would take whatever was left over. He insisted and handed me a pile of tickets so I could choose my seat. In the middle of the pile of tickets was a blank ticket (no seat assignment) that said “[Name], will you marry me?”
I looked up from the tickets to find him down on one knee and all of our friends around clapping, cheering, and taking photos. Everyone knew except me!!
Other tailgaters around us ran in to join the cheering and excitement. I’m so thrilled to be spending the rest of my life with him, and beyond excited that we got to kick off the next chapter where we met!
He also did a GREAT job on my ring! 1.25ct oval flanked by two .3ct trillions – beautiful despite my swollen summer fingers!!
