First Date Proposal Surprise

First Date Spot Marriage Proposal_1

How We Met: We first met about 3 years ago, when I was actually dating someone else and Austin had come to town to visit his dad. We had lunch. Then in late spring of this year, I invited Austin to join me for karaoke (as a friend). He thought it meant more… And yes, he drove 2.5 hours to come for karaoke only to discover that I was with another guy. So he drowned his sorrows in alcoholic beverages and we sang Bennie and the Jets together… Within a month, we started spending time doing volunteer construction together and I broke things off with the guy I was seeing. Austin stopped talking to another girl he was interested in and we decided to become “official” as a couple on June 4 .

How He Asked: I knew the general idea of when it was coming… Mainly because I had hassled him until he started to let a few things slip. Austin spent a long time planning every little detail. Even when I almost figured things out causing Austin to have to make last minute changes to the day, time, and even location, he pulled it off beautifully. Austin ended up taking me to Agave Azul Mexican restaurant where we had our very first date. But, I wasn’t prepared for the amazing surprise that awaited me. It felt like a blur. I’m glad we have pictures because it all went by too fast….
