- Wedding: May 2012
My bf of two years proposed Sunday!!! We decided to have a crawfish boil at our house on Sunday to celebrate my birthday that was Thursday and our 2 yr anniversary that was Saturday. We invited 4 of my bestfriends and their spouses, my bf’s two best friends, and my dad and step mom. After everyone arrived we ate crawfish and just hung out. I was so excited my friend were able to make it (one in particular is usually busy when I ask her to come visit). After eating, we all gathered in the livingroom/dining area and my friend lit candles on some cupcakes she had brought for me. I thought it was silly that they wanted to sing to me. Who sings to a 23 yr old?!? It was all part of his plan to distract me! I decided to let them and I stood there embarassed. I blew out my candles and then my bf turned me around where he was. He got down on one knee and his truck alarm went off! His keys were in his pocket and when he knelt the panic button accidentally got pressed! Before he could say anything to me, he had to take his keys out to turn the alarm off. Everyone giggled and then he began to speak. Once I saw him get down on one knee I said “No, you’re not doing this right now?!?” I couldn’t believe it was happening! He told me it was going to happen in May or June so I was completely shocked. He was shaking and could barely get the words out. He said some thing like “I love you. It’s been a great two years. I couldn’t imagine my life with out you. I feel like I was born to love you. Will you marry me?” I was crying and all I could get out was “Yes.” All our friends began clapping. It was the absoulte perfect proposal for me. I was glad to have my friends and my dad there and they have all told me how much it meant to them to be there for my special moment. I didn’t know that while I was inside chatting with my friends, my bf was outside asking my dad to marry me and barely eating he was so nervous.
I am so happy to be taking this next step & I can’t wait to spend my life with him!! It was a perfect moment! He is the kind of guy I always wanted to marry, but there were times when I didn’t think guys like him even existed!
