We first saw each other , as cliche as it may be, across the bar lol. We spent the whole night eyeing each other. Neither one making a move to speak. I (Emily) was the one who asked a friend about him, found him on facebook and sent the first request. He waited a full day and never accepted my request so I figured he maybe had a girlfriend or something so I cancelled the friend request. About 10 minutes later he sent one back to me. I accepted and the rest is history!
We took our girls to the beach for Fathers Day weekend. The first day we got out on the beach and set up within like 10 minutes, I was settled in my chair with my umbrella and my drink and he was pacing around so I felt something was up. Then all of a sudden he reached into the bookbag beside me and pulled put a box. He asked me to stand up and I knew what was happening. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was a surprise! I had no idea it was coming. I dont think there was much planning involved (he isnt a planner) he talked to his dad, got some advice and went a got the ring. Lol. Simple and sweet.
