The Proposal

As you view the videos, keep in mind that Joshua had told me that Kim and Sam wanted interview us for a video about dating for their youth group. In my mind, we were there video-taping for the kids.

Secondly, we'd decided in early September that in October we wanted to go to Mom and Dad's together to talk to my parents so Joshua could as for my hand. We'd not gone that weekend, because it was OU-TX but all weekend, I'd been thinking, WHEN!? and we need to call to make sure my parents will be in town. But Joshua hadn't said anything about it and I didn't want to press him, nevertheless, it was foremost in my mind.

Also, make sure to read the Key Story post so that portion makes sense.

I seriously didn't know what was going on until I looked back and saw mom and dad. omg. I was so fooled. He did sooooo well.

Part 1 - mostly interview. Questions: Where did you meet, What's your favorite thing about your relationship?

Part 2 - interview cont. Questions: What's your favorite thing about your relationship con't and How do you see God in your relationship?

Part 3 - Question: Where do you see your relationship headed in the future? Note the family closing in behind us.

Joshua really did an amazing job. I was so surprised and the ring is perfect. He had to go to a LOT of trouble in the preceding two weeks. He'd driven to my parent's house while I was on a business trip, kept in contact with mom and my two sisters, kept up with Kim's and Mom's additions to his plan, got me to pick out the roses without letting me know they were for me, taken me shopping for a new outfit "for the youth video", made sure I'd not looked at his calls/txts since mom and Shelley had been calling/txting, talked to Hastings (even got us free lattes!), ordered and picked up the ring 2 weeks previously while I was in Tulsa with him, then kept quiet about it (!) while making me think it'd not been purchased yet, at Hastings, steering me clear of my hiding family, and picked music for the Hasting's sound system, all while making sure I was none the wiser. Masterful job, really. He's amazing.
