Failed Engagements

  • Going to our favorite restaurant that we visit every week and having the bartender deliver my plate of tater tots spelled out to read WILL YOU MARRY ME. I like that restaurant and my tots and all, but I'm glad the bartender talked him out of it.

  • While ice skating. Initially sounded cute, but one of this friends reminded him that the only people who go ice skating these days are pre-teens. Kind of awkward for a marriage proposal. Besides, Abraham has never been before and would probably spend more time on his butt than on one knee.

  • Having our favorite singer do it during a show. This almost happened. We drove up to Nashville to see him for the weekend, and Abraham had the ring in his pocket the whole time. The venue had trouble getting in touch with the singer to see if he would do it. It would have been awesome, but 30 minutes before the show I spilled barbecue sauce down my silk shirt and it left a one-foot stain. I'm glad all on my engagement pictures don't have me with the world's largest stain down my shirt.

I'm glad it happened the way it did. He proposed in the most meaningful way possible, and it was so simple. So simple that had zero inclination that it was a possibility.

He certainly picked the right way, fate most have stepped in to help.

As much as the former skating coach who lives inside of me would have squealed over the skating proposal...oh, hell. I couldn't have squealed any more than I did. Congrats again.

Definitely did the best way possible for you guys. My friend got proposed to on the ice skating rink and I thought it seemed pretty young for them. Each to their own, I guess.

He did brilliantly, this is one of the coolest and most meaningful proposals I've ever heard of. :)

Couldn't help but notice that he proposed where you two started - on the dodgeball field! Quite fitting... and a better choice than these, I agree (though such cute planning!)

I love how he did it. SO YOU! But, I would take any of them as an engagement is an engagement!!!!! It is just nice to know that he was really thinking about it all and wanted it to be something great for you. Now....ring pic!
