Our Proposal Story | Five Years

Friday was the fifth anniversary of Brandon asking me to marry him...which is crazy to think we'll be married for five years this fall! Some of you may be new here or may just not know the story, so I thought I would share our proposal story. Now, we don't celebrate this day like we do our wedding anniversary, but I always think it's fun to bookmark certain dates. We always talk about this day and still laugh about how I threw a wrench in the plans, as per usual! Ha!

March 27, 2010:

Brandon came over to my apartment and we had a totally normal Saturday - so normal that I didn't have any makeup on and had my hair in a ponytail. We started the day out at the Dallas Farmers Market, purchasing some plants for my patio and then had lunch on the patio at a little Mexican restaurant there. Brandon acted totally normal and I suspected nothing. In fact, I even talked to my mom on the phone and she acted totally normal, too, so when I say I had no idea, I really had no idea! 

Then, we went back to my apartment and Brandon asked if I wanted to go walk around White Rock Lake. I said sure, and then he told me he had to take a shower. I thought that was weird since we were going on a walk, but whatever. He then told me he had to go to Jamba Juice to get a smoothie, so I said I'd stay back at the apartment until he got back. It took him for-ev-er, so I actually painted my nails while I waited. Ha! 

Once he finally got back, we drove out to the lake. It had been a really pretty spring day, but in true Texas fashion, the weather changed and started to get blustery and really windy. Brandon parked far away, and I started to act grouchy and told him he needed to park closer. He started to get frustrated with me, but parked closer. Once we got closer and were getting out of the car, he reached in the back of his Jeep for a big white box. I saw it was a box from my favorite cupcake place, Society Bakery. I got super excited and tried to sneak a peek inside the box, but he wouldn't let me. It was then that I started to get suspicious. {He went to get the cupcakes when he said he was going to get a smoothie from Jamba Juice.} 

He walked me out onto a dock on the lake. I sat down on a post and he stayed standing. He asked me what kind of cupcake I wanted, and I said, "Yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing, if you have it. If not, Red Velvet, please." {Of course, Brandon proposing to me with food. Ha! He knows the way to my heart!} Anyway, he said, "Well, I have a red box, would that work?" And then he got down on one knee and said something that I can't remember, and then said, "Will you be my wife?" 

Of course I said "yes" and then this guy parked at the end of the dock even honked his horn and yelled, "Congratulations!" Then, some biker pulls up and I notice it's Brandon's older brother, Jeff. He was supposed to photograph the whole thing {disguised as a biker}, but because I made Brandon park closer, his brother missed it! Leave it to me to ruin a surprise... 

Then, we got married 6.5 months later!
