Kelsi and James

Where to Propose in Lahaina, Hawaii

How He Asked

So let me first start off by saying, we had been talking about getting married for AT LEAST the past 3 years. We both knew it was something that we wanted but it just never happened. Needless to say, I was starting to go a little bit “ring crazy” as I like to call it. I just couldn’t wait!! I was driving myself insane waiting for this moment. I always thought I would know the exact moment when James would get down on one knee and ask me to be his wife. But on December 25, 2016, he caught me SO OFF GUARD!!! I had no idea it was coming. We woke up kind of early to open some presents, drink some bubbly & make banana mac nut pancakes! My family tradition was to always open stockings first but James told me that HIS tradition was stockings after breakfasts (this was our 5th Christmas together and I didn’t recall this one, but went with it) I had mentioned to James that I wanted to start a new tradition and get an Elf on the Shelf for us to have, and to have fun with once we have kids. Honestly, I didn’t think he really heard me or knew what Elf on the Shelf was. So a few hours (and many presents later) my last stocking present was my first clue to a scavenger hunt to find my Elf. I was so excited for this dang Elf!!!!! Once I found the final clue, it was Star Wars related of course, James loves Star Wars, I found the Elf…and it took me a minute to realize that he was clad in a tuxedo and holding a very nice piece of bling bling!
