Proposed to in a Bowling Ally
Posted 30 March 2008 - 12:29 PM
Chris was working nights when his retro check came in. It hit our joint checking account on Dec. 1. I automatically took that money out of the joint account and put it into his own account. I knew that I was getting a ring but wanted to be surprised and didn't want it for Christmas, I also figured that because I'm not the "normal 7" size, the ring would have to be ordered and take a few weeks.
It was a Friday and me, my sister and a friend had to go bowling to make up a game for a league we were on. Before bowling, I wanted to go out for drinks after work. One of my friends who was staying with us at the time had plans to go to her parents for the weekend but decided to head out Sat morning instead of Friday night, she was going to come to the bar & hang out at the bowling ally. My sister was also going to go to the bar, but half way through the day said she didn't really want to go to a bar because she was on antibiotics. So instead of the bar we went out for Sushi before bowling. I wasn't thrilled, but what are you gonna do.
After dinner, I was cold and went to put my arms around Chris and he got mad, I thought it was because he didn't feel well.
We get to the bowling ally and actually run into Chris' ex girlfriend, I'd never met her before, just heard stories...(She was with chris for like 3 years and apparently, all she wanted to do was get married and have babies).
While we were bowling, Chris was sitting there sweating and looking sick. I thought it had to do with his ex being there and didn't understand what the big deal was.
About half way through the second game, my sister was being obnoxious. Making me go get her a soda even though she could have went to get it herself, and that was after she disappeared for a while when it was her turn.
I wasn't happy. I was FUMING actually. At one point my sisters name turned into "will y". I saw it, but just thought it was her friend messing with her (he worked the desk at the bowling ally).
As I was angry and wanting her to just go Chris (sitting behind me) says "Don't be mad"
Me (turning around) "why not"
Chris (on one knee) "don't be mad, marry me"
...My friend is awesome with a camera...

I love that pic, he actually hates it because he looks "grubby" I told him he has no excuse for looking bad, he knew what was coming that night!
