How We Met
I was working as a dancer at a club. I was having a really bad night, I can’t remember why. He walked up to me after I got off stage and wanted me to come and sit with him. I told him no at first but after a minute he convinced me. I ended up spending the whole night sitting at his table talking to him and his group of friends. As the end of the night was approaching he started trying to get me to come hang with him and his friends. I said no at first because that’s not something I normally did. Finally after him asking over and over I said yes. I went and told my roommate(who I worked with)where I would be.
Once we got to his place him and I just hung out in his living room. He turned music on and danced with me. We stayed up and talked way late into the night. I don’t even remember what time it was that we fell asleep.
He drove me home early the next morning and I don’t think we ever stopped talking after that.
how they asked
It was November of 2015. We had just had our daughter in July and we’re just exhausted from the craziness of being first time parents. He came home from lunch with his mom and Aunt one day and said that his Aunt decided to surprise us with a short trip to Disneyland. I am a huge fan of all things Disney so I was so excited. His mom was going to watch Korra while we were there. Everything was all set up. We were only going to be there for 3 days and two of those were flying days so we were a bit rushed wanting to see everything. On December 1st, our second day there we woke up bright and early and went to Animal Kingdom, after about 2 hours we made our way back to our hotel room to get ready for our reservations at Cinderella’s Castle. I was so excited at the thought of eating there that I didn’t even think anything was going on. The food wasn’t spectacular. All of the princesses came around to each table to take pictures. It was such a nice meal. When it came time for dessert our waitress came out with a covered tray. I still didn’t think anything of it until she set it down and took the cover off. There was a glass slipper surrounded by rose petals. Before I knew it Connor was in front of me down on one knee telling me how much he loves me and that he knew it from the first day we met. Then the words “Will you marry me?” I don’t remember but apparently I was so shocked that I didn’t answer the first time and he had to ask twice! Of course I said yes! We spent the rest of the day riding roller coasters and watched the parade at the end of the night. It was perfect!
