I 100% knew it was coming. I said “are you serious?! – YES!” Apparently I’m an ok actress because he really thought I was shocked…but now he knows I wasn’t actually that surprised haha. Not what I imagined at all but whatever!

  • Wedding: October 2020 - Las Vegas, NV

My story is kind of long so please bear with me.

The day he first proposed was on 2/13 after I had a horrendous fight with my father. He took me to our favorite restaurant “Texas Roadhouse” and I was crying in the parking lot in the car staring up at the moon he said “I love you and I want to be with you forever”. He followed up with “I was going to ask you on Sunday when we go to LA but will you marry me”? I cried even harder at the thought that this beautiful moment I had been dreaming of came on a terrible day. In fact I didn’t answer him right away as he has a thing about the 13th always being bad luck. We went inside had dinner and then went home. I waited until midnight as Valentines was the next day. I let him open all of his presents and told him I had one more gift for him. We sat down and I looked him in the eyes and said “of course I will marry you”. 

On Sunday 2/17 we went to LA it was snowing on the way over and I didn’t think we would make it past. Once we got there we went to The Grove where we had dinner at our other favorite place “The Cheesecake Factory”. After dinner we walked around for a bit until he took me to the roof of the parking garage where it overlooks Hollywood on all sides, he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him again. He gave me a ring pop as we hadn’t ordered my ring yet at the time. He also gave me a beautiful angel necklace which was my belated Valentines gift.

I think I just smiled and said yes and then we went to meet the photographers who had been sitting a small ways away from us waiting to meet us. But admittedly I don’t necessarily tend to show emotions outwardly very much other than when something is funny to me and I am laughing. It wouldn’t have been authentic (for me and only me. I do not feel this way about anyone else but me) To cry or emote excessively. But everyone is different and I think you shouldn’t be worrying about your face during the proposal. I am sure if he is asking to marry you that he loves your faces 🙂

For me, I was shocked because it totally caught me off guard because I wasn’t expecting it for at least another year. I think he did it because he didn’t want to lose me when I moved back to my hometown. I did say yes though and I was totally over the moon about it until a few days later when I came out of the high and realized I have a lot of work cut out for me in order to make this work as far as moving in together, me getting a permanent job, and him getting a job in my hometown, but we will have a long engagement so it seems doable to get everything sorted out. I am no longer panicking and now I am kind of excited again.

I ugly cried for twenty minutes. My reaction was very unexpected but so was his proposal LOL I think genuine reactions are beautiful, even if they involve crumpled faces and tears.
