My daughter is going up to his family farm with her big dogs on Friday afternoon after teaching a high school class. He’ll take her out on the tractor, Saturday morning, with her ring tied to the back (yes, makes me nervous too). He’ll pretend that something is wrong and call her down to look at it- and she’ll find the ring… blue sapphire.
We are packed and ready to head up to central Texas to meet his parents and grandparents. My son and his fiance (who will be married June 6th) also will be nearby. It will be hard to hide ourselves in a little town like that… but I think we’ve found an inconspicuous place. She knows NOTHING about this, except that her best friend asked for her ring size. Yes, she’s suspicious… called her Dad and told him if someone called with a “question” Dad had better say yes;-)

My only additional suggestion is that if possible, hire a photographer to hide somewhere and capture the moment on film.
My wedding photographer did that once for someone and the pictures are AMAZING!

Okay. So we’re here at the hotel. And I am on the hotel computer typing this. I am so flipping excited about the whole thing. She gets in tonight and he asks her tomorrow morning and then we all jump out of the wilderness and say congratulations. I don’t know what karma brought me to this point in life, but it is so sweet!

Update! She said yes!
He took her out on the tractor as planned and she suspected nothing. She was however, very unwilling to get down off the machine when he said that he needed help with something. (The ring was tied on too the back of the tractor)- In the meantime, my husband, son and I were at a nearby ranch hotel, meeting his parents and sister… who were very nice. I have to say there is a large cultural difference between the two families, but I don’t see it being much of a problem. I’m glad though that I knew that donkeys herd sheep, and what a Brangus cow was… she loves that lifestyle though, and I’m already scouting venues in the Hill country.
We love her young man- she was totally surprised and delighted.
