Kelsey and Corey

How We Met

I met my fiancé at Chick-fil-A where we both worked. It was an instant friendship, however, I wasn’t looking for anything more since I was leave the following year to attend Florida State University. It took a year of talking, hanging out, and me friend zoning Corey before I realized that enough was enough. I was tired of letting my fears and insecurities in the way of our relationship so I called him on October 15, 2013 and asked him to date me. He was so ecstatic! Little did we know that almost 3 years later we would be engaged to be married!

How He Asked

Corey proposed to me over Chipotle burrito bowls on October 13, 2016 at Lake Ella in Tallahassee, Florida. This is a favorite spot of ours where we have gone on picnics to enjoy the lake and scenery. While unpacking the food bags, Corey didn’t give me the guacamole. When I asked him where it was, he asked me to tell him 10 reasons why I loved him before he would give me the guac. With slight irritation due to hangriness and love of guacamole (lol), I said the 10 reasons why. Out of silliness, some of the reasons were because he buys me chipotle and takes me out to eat. After the tenth reason, Corey reached into the chipotle bag to retrieve the guacamole and instead pulled out a velvet black box and asked me to marry him. I was in complete shock but eventually said yes! We then spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the lake and calling our parents to tell them the great news.

*No worries, Kelsey got both the ring and the guac in the end!
