  • My husband didn't get down on one knee or anything...he's not really a softy kinda guy (unfortunately) but i liked the way he proposed. He just handed me a box. It was a ring box obviously, but when i opened it up i expected to see a beautiful ring inside...nope! it was a gumball machine ring with a little cowboy boot on it (that's just what he happened to get lol). And the he asked...and i said yes (regardless of the ring!) then he pulled out the little bubble thingy that he got from the gumball machine and it had the real ring in it! It was so sweet!

  • Since I asked the question...I start it off! Lol!

    My fiance proposed on Christmas Eve. We were upstairs getting ready to put my son to bed. We were looking on the internet and 'tracking' Santa. After we found out where Santa was we were getting up to walk T into his room and Jason told T that he needed help with something. So was clueless and just stood there. Jason got on his knee and propsed. He wanted to know if T was ok with it and T was WAY excited. He was telling me to 'Say yes! Say yes!' and after the initial shock and through my tears I said yes. Jason slid this gorgeous ring on my finger and we put T to bed. I don't think it could have been any more perfect. I had my 2 best men in my life with me. And now we are trying to get all the arrangements made for our upcoming wedding! :)

  • My husband proposed on the 4th of July. I had to pick him up from work and we headed straight out to the airport where they have the fireworks, and he had a small box with him (not a ring box, bigger than that). I asked what it was and he said it was for me, but I couldn't open it until later. So we went out to the airport, and met up with my mom, her boyfriend and my sister, and we all sat together. DH was acting kinda weird, they did some demonstrations and cool things, but he wouldn't leave our area. He finally did though, so I didn't think much of it. When it got dark, they raised the flag and sang the national anthem, so we were standing, and then when it was over, I sat back down, but he didn't right away. As soon as the first firework was set off, he turned and got down on one knee and reached in his pocket and pulled out a ring box and said, "And with that Steph, I want to know, wiil you marry me?"

  • CONT:

    My mom and sister both had cameras and were snapping pictures through the whole thing, so I have photos of him proposing! Turns out, he had the ring in the box, and he was going to have me open the box and propose, but he wanted to see the deomnstration things, so he took it out so he wouldn't have to leave it! That was in 2003, after we had been together for almost 3 years and our daughter was 2 at the time! We got together in Sep of 2000, and she was born in December of 2001.
