Ours was just on the fly... kind of a funny story. Shane & I were home (yes, we lived together 1st). I was sitting at the computer and he was standing next to me.... we were just taking about "our future" you know we all have those talks when you have been together and don't really know where it is going...lol. I was checking email and Shane went to the bathroom..... when he came back out... I spun around in my chair and found him in front of me down on one knee.... looked at me with tears in his eyes and said..."you know what? lets do it.... (pause) lets get married" I think I said "ok" but I'm not sure... he then picked up the phone and called my Dad My Mom answered and he asked to speak with Marv... Shane said, "Hey, how ya doing?....(they had some small talk)....then I hear Shane say (in a shaky voice), "would it be okay with you if I married your daughter?" Of course Mom & Dad were VERY HAPPY!! We laughed and cried etc... then I had to leave to go pick up our dinner (pizza we had already ordered from a wonderful friend who also came to our wedding a worked his butt off to make it right)....anyway... by time I got home...he had called his Dad, his Mom, and his Brother to let them all know. After we ate... I called my Sister (Maid of Honor), Best Friend (Bridesmaid, flowergirl, & ringbear), and all the Grandparents.... it was quite the night!! That was in Oct 2001....we were tight on money so we did not pick out rings until the end of Nov.... then for Christmas my Boss found out where we were getting the rings and gave us a $1,000 gift cert to pay for it and I was able to have it on my finger the same day that we left to go home to Shane's Family for Christmas.... it was so cool!
We were married Aug 2002...and are living happily ever after!
Thanks for asking this question.... HAPPY MEMOIRES!!
