How we met: It was NOT love at first sight for Drew & I. During my first semester at Mizzou we were blind dates for my sorority semi-formal. When we arrived at the party we took a few photos, had a drink, & then parted ways. Neither of us thought anything of it until a year later when we ran into each other at a mutual friends house. I approached Drew & asked ‘why he couldn’t say hi?’. He asked to take me to dinner that weekend, and needless to say our 2nd date was better than the 1st one that took place a year prior….
how they asked: I felt like I was living in a fairytale when I received the ultimate surprise during my final game as a St. Louis Rams Cheerleader. December 21st, 2014 began as an emotional day for me. It was my third and final season cheering for the Rams, & I entered the Edward Jones Dome knowing it was the last time I would be dancing on the sidelines, rooting for my favorite team. Little did I know what was in store…
After our halftime performance we were directed to the 50-yard line to watch a ‘tribute to the cheerleaders’ video.
When the video began, it was apparent that what I was watching was NOT a tribute to the cheerleaders. In fact, it was a proposal video that immediately brought me to tears.
The next thing I knew, Drew had met me centerfield, gotten down on one knee, & was creating the most memorable moment of my life.
I have never been more stunned, & over the moon with joy. Needless to say, I said YES in front of 55,851 of our closest friends ;)
Drew has put a smile on my face everyday for the past 5 five years, but my proposal takes the cake. He said he wanted me to have the ‘perfect proposal story’ to tell, & it was truly perfect.
