How We Met

Rocky and I first met through mutual friends in college back in 2009.  After his persistence and charming personality, we went out on our first date, and we have been together ever since, almost seven years next month.

How He Asked

When Rocky and I were beginning to get serious, he always told me that he was never going to propose to me on Christmas or my birthday, he was adamant about the proposal being its own special day.

About a week before my birthday, he told me that we were going to go away for the weekend in Foxwoods Connecticut, just the two of us.  After our couples massage in the morning, he wanted to do a little gambling at the black jack table.  As I watched, he began winning, and all of a sudden I notice that he says to the dealer “I’m out”.  He says to me “Lets go back to the room”.  Rocky ended up winning $700 in a matter of ten minutes! When we got to the room I said ” Wow babe, $700 in ten minutes? You’re really lucky! That’s really impressive!” He then bent down on one knee and asked “How would you like to make me the luckiest man in the world?”

The very next day, I was told that we were going to NYC to celebrate with just a couple family members.  He drives the car to his house, and I am confused onto why we are going home first instead of the city.  He says “we just have to stop here first.”  We walk inside, and as I open the front door, there are 70 of our family members and friends screaming “SURPRISE!!!” in my face.   Needless to say, it was the biggest house party that I have ever seen! and it was one of the most memorable days of my life!
