Aw, sweet story. 

I had no idea he wanted to propose. We were at the coast celebrating our four year anniversary (which had been the Monday before), like we do every year. Our last night after dinner he said he had a surprise. We went down to the beach and kept walking FOREVER. I saw a circle of mason jars with tea lights in them and “Marry Me” by Train was playing. His two best friends, and my best friend were sitting on a log a little ways a way. He got down on one knee while our friends jumped up to take pictures! He had a very sweet speech, I said yes, yay! 

Also, the weather had been SUPER crappy that weekend except the half hour we spent on the actual beach. The ring was his grandmother’s and he hadn’t gotten it sized or anything yet and it fit perfectly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ahhh, that is too cute!

My Fiance proposed at our favorite restaurant. After going to dinner there a week prior, he had discovered that they had just starting using drink menus that lit up when you opened them.

Fiance told me that as soon as I got to his house (we are in a somewhat long-distance relationship, so it was a bit of a drive!) that we were going straight to the restaurant for dinner. Once at the restaurant and seated, he handed the drink menu which he had switched out for “Becky, I love you so very much, will you marry me”? All of a sudden, he was on one knee, cameras were flashing, and a server brought out two dozen roses…and I was SHOCKED to say the least! The ring was beautiful and the guy was handsome, so of course I said yes ๐Ÿ™‚ After this whole ordeal we had to sit there and eat dinner, I couldn’t stop OMGing the entire time haha!


A few pictures from after we got home

Well on my birthday, at my birthday party, my Fiance took BOTH of my parents aside and started talking to them. He wouldn’t let me go with him or anything and I got stuck talking with my uncle about finances. Not cool…. he then came back, did a few shots with my brother and his BFF and we finished the night. I knew we had a big trip planned for Puerto Rico in a few weeks and it was right before our 4 year anniversary and I thought… maybe, just maybe!!!

Well we were finally on our way and had just boarded our second flight in Atlanta from our layover and were flying over the open sea. The pilot came on the speakers and told us that we were now flying over the Bahamas and a bunch of other near by islands. I got so excited and was looking out the window at the islands that I didn’t even realize that he had pulled a ring out of his pocket. I turned around to make him look out the window and there was a ring in his fingers and he asked me! It was such an exciting moment!!! We kissed and had delicious free celebratory drinks for the rest for the flight! So our normal trip turned into an engagement trip and my parents even arranged for us to have our engagement pictures taken there! It was AMAZING!!

@cellokitty:  I had an idea it was coming, just wasn’t quite sure when.  After a few weekends of being disappointed because I thought it would happen and didn’t, he decided we needed a night out and suggested we go to the coffee house where we had our first date.  I was SURE it was going to happen there! We ordered some hot cocoa and talked for a while, but he paid the bill and we left with no proposal. I was NOT a happy camper to say the least! There also happened to be a random October snowstorm happening that night, but he said he needed to go to Sears to get something for his car.  As we pulled into the parking lot at the mall, he drove over to the spot where we had our first kiss and asked me if I remembered what happened there.  He leaned in to kiss me, and while I had my eyes closed, he pulled out the ring and then asked me to marry him.  It was so simple, but so perfect!  He said if it hadn’t been snowing he would have gotten out of the truck and gotten down on one knee, but the snow made it even more special!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I asked him. I bought a watch he wanted *it was about a month before his birthday so I put it off on that* And asked him when we got home from work one day. I was a nervous wreck.

He sent me on a treasure hunt.

It started with the card that came with the roses he had delivered to me on a Friday afternoon. It hinted that I should log onto the website where I first spotted him. From them I went to the restaurant where we had our first date, then to his house, then back to my house, then to a nature trail near a lake we like to frequent in nice weather. He was waiting for me with a sweet, tiny, unassuming little ring. It was awesome.

(I wrote a whole giant post about it, but I don’t want to take up a giant block of space to recount it…)

We just kinda decided at lunch on St. Patty’s Day. We were sharing an appetizer platter and he just said to me “We keep talking about getting married…Why don’t we just go do it?” So I said we should and then we went to a local jewelry store and picked me out a temporary ring. When we got home he took the ring and got on his knee and officially asked me. We picked out permanent ring about a week later and now I wear the original on my right hand.
