Biochick75 (161) – 10/27 – They were supposed to go kayaking and stop at a certain place in the bay but Biochick got lost and frustrated about finding the place he wanted her to meet him. She ended up several miles away from where they were supposed to meet! He ended up picking her up and driving her to the place where they were supposed to be. They ended up not renting the kayak but he walked her to the area where he also had a picnic set up and happy birthday balloons for her. The first gift was a necklace that she spotted before, then he pulled out the 2nd bag, It was a box! He got down on his knee and said, “You are the fairest maiden of them all. I want to ask for your hand in marriage.” – “Of course! Yes!” she replied!
Mikesbabydoll19 (207) – 10/27 – He took her quadding in a special area in the woods behind her parents place, where they have their initials carved in a tree He proposed with a 1.25 ct equiv. round brilliant moissanite stone, petite cathedral with little stones in the band. The metal is palladium and she thinks it’s absolutely perfect
boardersarita (112) – 10/27 – Her SO suggested they take a day trip or get out of town and they decided on hiking and getting oysters along the coast. So Saturday came & they hiked, and ate oysters, it was gorgeous, but nothing. They then went down to the beach at the oyster farm, and he said he wanted to grab the oreo cookies from his backpack, but when he turned back around he had a white ring box with a ribbon on it! He asked her again if she would marry him (after being secretly-engaged for weeks!), and of course she said yes, and he put the ring on her finger!
LemonLavender (23) – 10/27 – They went to a big Halloween party in the country with many of their friends on Saturday. After some typical drinking and socializing, they all went on a hay ride, which is tradition for this party every year. The hay ride stopped and one of their friends jumped off and began distracting them all with drunken debauchery; LL honestly didn’t think anything of it or the fact that her boyfriend climbed off the wagon. Next thing she knows, he asked her to come to where he was for a second. She stood up and saw a line of carved pumpkins on the truck reading, “Will you marry me?” After she saw it, he got down on one knee and asked. And, of course, she said yes.
Ravenxwonder (121) – 10/27 – Her SO took her to the first place they first met and popped the question!

Love108 (37) – 10/28 – Her SO proposed!
Penelopeee (171) – 10/28 He proposed in a vineyard!
NoOneYouExpect (46) – 10/28 – Her SO and her went out to dinner and her SO told her a sad waiting bee story about waiting for the “perfect” moment gone wrong. What was the point of him sharing this with her, you ask? Because he realized that there really was no perfect time. At home things got playful and our lovely bee asked him if he really thought hey should just do it. When he yes, she told him that in that case she was done waiting and asked him to marry her! He said yes, took her costume ring out of her hand, and put it on her left ring finger! Then he moved the promise ring she gave him to his left hand!
Waitingtobee (28) 11/1/12 – Her fiancé proposed in their first home together! “It seriously could not have been more perfect. I am beyond excited to plan our wedding and look forward to all the future holds for us!” Congratulations!
Meant2Bee (170) – 11/2 – Her job sent her on business trip to give a speech. It was a pretty far drive so she invited my SO to come to help with the driving. Her job put them up in a 5 star hotel overlooking the most beautiful mountains. After an amazing job by our bee her Fiance (ekkkkkk) took her to dinner to celebrate. She got all dolled up and the staff at the restaurant was amazing. There was a live band playing by their table and they played “lets stay together”, to which they danced. Afterwards he walked her to the balcony of the restaurant that overlooked the mountains for what she thought was to take pictures. He then turned and said “I want to make this a night you will never forget”, and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. After screaming ” are you serious” nearly twenty times her Fiance said “Yes, I’m serious, will you?!” She said “Of course”. The entire staff of the hotel came and cheered and poured us glasses of champagne.
elle_z (140) – 11/04 – After arriving home from a hair appointment, full of waiting-bee-nerves she found a ring box was sitting on the couch…and started crying immediately. Shaking, mouth agape, Elle_Z’s SO (now FI) gestured towards the box and told her to open it. In it was a slip of paper which read “let’s play a game…” He then sent her a goose chase to the laundry room, bathroom, closet and finally the bedroom. She all but ran to the room, opened the door, saw her fiancé standing there. He got down on one knee and with tears in his eyes, asked her to marry him.
BlondeBee (157) – 11/10/12 – It started with a walk in their favorite park, where they often go when it’s a nice day out. He suggested they get outside, since it was sunny and 65. They got about 30 minutes into the walk, through gorgeous tree-lined paths, and came across a stream. Always the explorer, he said “Those are the kind of rocks that have fossils in them!” Our bee suggested they climb down and take a look. They cracked open some rocks, but didn’t find anything. They were standing on a little island in the middle of a stream, in the middle of these gorgeous woods, all alone. He pulled her close, and started saying how he’s never been happier, and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Shaking bad at this point, she thought she was going to fall over. He got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him.
LiliKitty (66) – 11/10/12 – They we re at the Shedd Aquarium in downtownChicagofor a bit of tourist activity with two lifelong friends in fromWisconsin. While taking pictures of the fish, her SO knelt down to tie his shoe. Or she thought he was tying his shoe! He said to her “LiliKitty, will you hold something for me?” The reality of the moment struck her and gave her friends a look to find they were recording the moment! He asked “Will you marry me?” and according to her friends, she said “Of course!”
JenBabe (19) -11/4/12 – She and her Fiance went to the historic Grove Park Inn. After spending all day at the Spa together they went out to the terrace to see the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains before dinner. There, he got down on one knee and presented her with the most perfect ring. Before we left town he took her to lunch, and waiting upstairs at a table were my Mom and Grandparents.

Jpalm13 (35) – 11/15/2012 Her Fiance took her to a new and hip restaurant in the downtown for dinner after work.
