Where to start...
How We Met:
My cousin Jen used to work with Adam. The three of us had a few movie nights and I was actually trying to get the two of them together. Then the day before Thanksgiving, Jen and I were in Walmart wasting some time when I found a pair of sleepshorts cut to resemble a jesters hat but colored red and green for Christmas. I about lost it I was laughing so hard and when I took a picture with my phone she said I should send it to Adam since he didn't know my number. Being michevious I also included a message stating that I wanted him to wear these shorts the next time I saw him. I then had to wait for three hours and when no response came I sent a second text, couldn't help myself, stating that maybe I would wear them next time I saw him. That got a response! We ended up texting the rest of the night and then all day during Thanksgiving the following day. That evening I asked Adam if he was working the following day because i knew he had to get up early and I didn't want to keep him awake all night. The response I recieved was, "No. Why? Do you want to hang out?" Of course I answered yes! A year and seven months later he asked me to marry him.
Our engagement was no surprise as we had been talking about it for a while and due to my allergy to most metals I actually had to pick my ring for him.
Two days before a package from ups came and I had to sign for it and when I asked him about it he couldn't stop smiling so I knew what it was and started telling my closest friends to be expecting it :)
How He Proposed:
Saturday June 18, 2011, we spent the evening at his friends wedding reception. After we got home we were laying on the bed talking about weddings and friends and he started messing with my hair. He kept pushing it in my face and I was starting to get annoyed so I turned my head away from him. Then, out of no where i hear, "Well I was going to wait till tomorrow..." I thought, what the heck is he talking about and turned back to face him. He had the box open, laying on his stomach. All I could manage was, "Really?" he said, "Well fine. If you don't want it..." To which I replied, "Are you going to ask me?" He did and of course I said YES! It may not have been romantic but it was 100% Adam and I loved it more for that reason
That was in June and here we are in March already. I haven't had much time for planning but i will work on posting what i have.
