o WOW Maybee what a beautiful proposal…it almost brought me to tears…how beautiful. My fiance and I have talked about marriage before and always say forever n always to each other and one night at home he said "I want to marry you" and I said "I want to marry you"…then we talked about the ring and he said he wanted me there to help him pick it out because he wanted to make sure it was something I loved because I would be wearing it forever! So I went with him and his two daughters to pick out the ring and then a few weeks later we went down the shore for vacation. Even though I picked out the ring…which is two designs put together as one….I didnt know how the proposal was going to go. So we went down the shore and the first day there we went walking on the beach and he asked a lady if she would take a picture of us on the beach and when she did he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was the first time I got to see the complete ring together…the center heart diamond and the round diamonds on each side….I loved it and I loved his proposal which we got on camera!  [attachment=208711,19706]

I think my Fiance was nervous about making the proposal romantic & memorable for me (we’ve been together for 10 years)

He took me to Santa Barbara for the weekend. He was planning on doing it at sunset on the pier, but it was CRAZY windy outside. He proposed later that evening in the hotel room & it was perfect because I’ve wanted it for so long.

He joked saying that I’d be mad if he proposed when my hair was wrecked from the wind. He was right. I guess he knows me all too well

We live in North Carolina, but all my family and friends are back in Minnesota, and Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday. I love LOVE LOVE the holidays and spending time with everyone I love. So anyways, we went home (to MN) for Christmas 2008 and my FH took the ring THROUGH AIRPORT SECUIRTY (how he did is beyond me!) and proposed on Christmas Eve. He collaborated with my family to go look at lights around my little home town. The last stop was in our city’s central park… there is music that plays along with the lights, but we couldn’t get the right radio station to hear the music – and he suggested we got out to hear it better. And of course, dropped down on one knee. My family was all there, they took pictures and celebrated with us. It was the most PERFECT proposal and I was SO surprised. Here’s a picture from the night we got engaged! 🙂

Ours engagement story is kinda funny….

We were on vacation and my Fiance (then boy friend) asked me to take a walk with him on the beach.  "I saw this light house I wanted to check out"  he said.  It was just about sunset.  I didn’t really think this was out of the ordinary or anything… so I was not suspecting.

We began to walk down the beach and towards this light house.  We arrive at the light house… It was covered in spray paint and drawings on male genitalia!  All over it was covered… someone sure had some fun drawing – One had a hand wrapped around it and it read "stroke it" under it!

Well we both began laughing at the light house art work!  We enjoying watching the sunset and discussed the artistry of the light house for a little longer (we took photos!).  Then we opened up the light house door and inside was a bunch of trash and some dead fish…  

My Fiance began to poke at a fish head with a stick…YUK – Then while he was down on his knees he says " hey hun, I got something for you!"  I said "eeew, I don’t want it if its that fish head!"  

He then pulls a ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him!!  I said "yes" and then began to laugh because of the comment I had just said…….

later he told me he was hoping that the light house would be a more ROMANTIC spot – which it wasn’t but its the thought that counts…

A very memorable story…
