How did he propose?

Recommended Posts

   I had the pleasure of reading so many great, romantic proposals so I wanted to share mine. Ian and I met in High school and started dating our senior year.  After High school, we went to different colleges and even for a couple years we went to colleges more than 2 hours apart.  We stayed together through college, started our careers and moved in together.  After 8 years of dating still no proposal. 

     Finally, June 2010, I was getting ready for our big Kindergarten Graduation (I'm a Kindergarten Teacher), Ian told me that he had a busy day as well. He said, "I might be home late I have an important meeting today that I real nervous about."  I said "Don't worry about it, your going to do great!"  Then, I left for work.  Kindergarten Graduation takes a lot of planning, we set it up like a high school graduation except they know how to stand in alphabetical order, I need to make sure the Kindergarten kids stay in and stand on stage in alphabetical order.  Graduation was perfect, we had 8 Kindergarten classes with around 200 students graduating.  At the end of graduation our building principal honored a few of our teachers who were retiring and then called me up on stage.  She wanted to honor me for a grant that I had applied for and received.  When I walked on stage, the principal began to say to me, "Heidi we have something very special for you."  I didn't even register what she said to me because I saw Ian walking out on stage and I couldn't figure out why he was there.  Then immediately he was down on one knee, I could barely see him through my tears.  To me, it was the most perfect proposal.  I was extremely lucky that he did it in front our families, who was hiding in the audience, and 200 students parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts/uncles and whom ever else they brought.  I was able to get so many pictures and even videos of the proposal.  If you want to see the video, just go on you tube and type in Ians proposal.  Click on the video that has the kids in caps and gowns.

                      Thank you for letting me share my story.  I can't wait to see more.!!!

Awwwwwww!!!  You just made me cry!  What a wonderful story!!!

My Darling.....well let's just say he was not as creative but the proposal was sweet nonetheless.

We had been dating for almost 3 years....in fact our 3 year anniversary was coming up in 4 days (March 1st....he proposed on February 25th).  I believe he wanted to wait until then....but...

 

Ok....we met online and our first date was at TGIF.....(I was wary about meeting a stranger off the internet....so...public place it is)...

During our relationship, I had always warned..."Don't propose to me at TGIF!!! (if you are going to...)"  I could not stand the idea of the waiters clapping off beat to my proposal!!  LOL! Anywho...

 

We had gone out for our date night to Red Lobster....and had a great conversation. We live together but because of the both of our schedules, we rarely see one another. I enjoyed dinner and I was stuffed and asked him to help me up to put on my coat....He laughed and complied.... We drove home laughing all the way about me needing assistance to get out of the booth..He immediately left his leftovers on the floor and dashed upstairs to our bedroom...I was like.."Ok.... I'll put the food up!"  I went upstairs to find him kneeling at the edge of the bed, talking to our cat....(he does this a little too often) I paid no attention and began to take off my clothes.  By this time I had unbuttoned my pants and taken off 1 boot.  He says "Babe....can you help me up?"  I laughed and went to the other side of the bed (with my one boot and unzipped pants) And he pulls out a little box...and asks "Will you marry me?"  I said....."WHAT????!!!" and ran out of the room!  LOL!  I  came back in and he looked so sad because he thought I would say no!  I said yes! (of course!).  He later told me he tried to put the ring on the cats collar (she was less than pleased...)

 

I was so surprised!  He admitted to wanting to ask on our Anniversary but he knew we always re-do our first date and did not want to ask me at Fridays!  I was very happy!  We spent the next hour calling family and friends to tell them the  news....

 

That is our proposal story!  I would not change it for the world!

Here's the video of me proposing to my fiancee. It was at a poetry slam in front of about 400 people.

We're working on a video for our website that will share how we met, cuz that's quite a story too...

Enjoy!
