Maria and Alex

How We Met

We met in college, while spending time with frietime when I was a freshman and he was a sophomore/junior. He asked me out a couple months after meeting.

How He Asked

We went out to Outback Steakhouse, where I had some shrimp pasta and he had steak and potatoes and then we went to the mall and decided to do some window shopping and I bought a couple things at Hot Topic, and then on the way home, he stopped at 84th and Grange streets in Greendale and I thought something was wrong at first…he told me there was nothing wrong and then he took the ring box out and he looked at me and he said, ”Baby, I love you and I want to be with you forever. Would you marry me?” I cried at first and after I said,  ”Yes.” I was and am still so happy.
