I don’t actually remember! He proposed right after we finished cleaning/prepping food for the Thanksgiving dinner we were hosting the next day, so probably nothing nice. We were taking a short walk to the sand dunes, so I imagine I was wearing my typical California weekend winter fare – jeans, long-sleeved tee, sensible shoes/boots, and puffer jacket… Well, it was perfect for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was wearing jeans and a plaid top. We were on a trip with a group of friends and getting settled in our hotel room. SO NOT FANCY!

A smile.  It was Christmas morning, & I usually sleep in the altogether.

I was in my PJs. My Fiance had planned everything for Easter morning but I didn’t know so of course I was sleeping in (like well past 11 am). He was really anxious and impatient so when he finally got me up I didn’t even change before it all started. Thankfully, they were my cute PJs because it’s on video. But I wouldn’t change it for anything because it was that much more surprising.

Shorts and t-shirt, on top of a mountain we hiked up! I had no idea. It was perfect, no one else was up there and an amazing view. (It was cool so I wasn’t too sweaty either haha)

Work out clothes. He’d been trying to find a way to get me to come home after work and he left work early to prep it for my return (flower petals, a meal etc etc.) but I was adamant I wanted to go to the gym. So, I did and got home late sweaty and smelly and as soon as I walked in I knew what was happening. There was no time to shower and change so I just went with it ha ha ha.

At least I know he really love me, if he can propose when I look like a sweaty tomato he’s in it for the long haul ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lol. A hoodie and yoga pants. We were in the airport running to catch separate flights. Apparently, he had been planning to propose at some point earlier in the day, but time had gotten away from us and we were heading our separate ways not to see each other again for several months (we were LD). He actually missed his final boarding call in order to do it! Had to spend the night in the airport, poor guy.

Good thread!

Running clothes–he proposed after I finished my first half marathon…so, super sweaty and exhausted. Probably a nightmare for some women, but it was absolutely perfect for me.

juneberries :  that is going to be me. I’m a nervous/excited puker (thanks anxiety) so we always joke that it will happen.

A black floral maxi dress. We went out to eat at a nice restaurant for my birthday and were walking the beach after!

This was the outfit I picked out to wear on our date night and ended up being our proposal night! Don’t have any photographers photos back from the evening.
