My Knight in Shining Armour!

Recommended Posts

From the time that I was a little girl, I had always loved horses; so suitingly from the first time I saw Rogue, he immediately became the love of my life. He stood there that day, an absolutely stunning black and white paint horse, he was all the dreams of this little girl, put into reality. Fast forward two years; another stunning individual, in the form of a man, walked into my life and unexpectedly stole the other piece of my heart. A year and a half later, that man, filled in the last piece and turned the rest of this little girlâ€s dream into a reality.


My FI and I met in prison; yes, in prison. I arrived at Minnesota Correctional Facility in October of 2006 for my 6 week training class to become an officer. During the fourth week of instruction, we had a class on self defense; this class was taught by no other than my handsome, now fiancee.


** I have to admit that I noticed him right away, being how good he looked in those windpants. He says he noticed me too; but there were only tow females in the class, so who wouldn't! We went through the proceedures on how to handcuff offenders and I began to tease my handcuffing partner on what she would have done if an offender grabbed her hand when she was cuffing him; this is where the "Macho Man" stepped in; he grabbed onto my wrist from behind and pushed my hand, palm up, towards my lower back. Unknown to him, I had 3 fractured bones in my wrist from a horseback riding incident, and my wrist made a loud cracking noise and I fell to the floor. A day later he saw the result of his "instruction", as my wrist was very swollen and a large bruise had appeared on the top of my hand.


** After a year and a half went by in a blink of an eye and we filled it with wonderful memories of being together, unbeknown to me, he began planning his proposal. He first asked both of my parents for their permission to have my hand in marriage. Also, knowing the importance of Rogue in my life, he knew that he wanted to include him in this meaningful occasion. He went into great detail devising a plan with the owner of the stable where we board. They created a story not only to get me out to the barn and assist with some chores, but also to bring the video camera so that a video could be filmed and put on the barn website to promote winter riding; all of these things I agreed to do.


** On December 5th, I went out to the barn and got our boys ready for that winter riding video; it was a beautiful, crisp winter day and the sun was just starting to set. With the camera taping, up the hill we rode, holding hands and laughing as we came into a clearer view. We stopped at the top of the hill and he began to get off of his horse; absolutely clueless, I exclaimed to him quietly “What are you doing?! Sheâ€s still filming!†He walked valiantly around the front of his horse, stepped up to Rogue and I, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I, speechless and in tears, breathlessly nodded my head yes! I knew at that moment, that I had finally found my knight in shining armor.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
