- Wedding: November 2014
Last Thursday(6/20/2013), my now fiance surprised me with a proposal I couldn’t have even dreamed up. We commute to work together because we work so close together. When I went to pick him up on Thursday, he invited me in to take a look at a robot he was programming. He had prefaced this by talking to me over lunch about the program so I was a little excited to see it. When I went in his robot started going through the motions, and at the end when it was doing its ‘dance’ (a display of the different ways the robot arm can move to draw attention to the robot) it reached back, picked up a box and set it in front of my fiance. Next thing I knew he was on one knee. The kicker was the 3 video cameras he had set up in the lab we were in capturing every silly thing I said (I am pretty sure I was critiqueing the robots’ ‘dance’ for looking boring when it was busy picking up the ring I couldn’t see) and my completely stunned reaction. His brother is a awesome film editor so he is putting the video together so that hopefully I can share it with the bees
To say I was stunned is a complete understatement. I knew he had the ring, we had chosen it together. He had only been very strict about me not seeing it after it was complete. I knew he had talked to my Dad the previous weekend. I had been expecting this to come and yet was not expecting this AT ALL. It was perfect in every way and I am so impressed that he was able to surprise me when I made it nearly impossible for him to do so. I am so excited!!
I haven’t been very active on the boards, but I have enjoyed reading everyone else’s proposals so much that I got the courage up to share mine!
The RING is my dream tacori 2620 with a 1.5 carat cushion cut center! Sorry about the size, it’s my first time posting a photo on here.
