Only 187 more days!!
here's the story:
Back in October of 2006, Joe and I went on a couple of first dates… one to the levee to watch the stars, were we talked all night and another with some friends to a train bridge, where we technically trespassed…. But it was really fun, and the bridge was our “actual” first date.
So on Friday we were going on a date just to the levee… or so I thought…
We got to the levee and had been there about 10 minutes and the following conversation takes place:
JOE: “Jess, have you ever heard Madison (Joe’s bff) rap?”
JESS: “um, no.”
JOE: “I have a recording of it and I want you to hear it… aw man I left my recorder at the bridge”
JESS: “Well, lets go get it!”
JOE: “Ok we’ll be spontaneous and go get it”
At this point I am completely believing the story and remain totally oblivious…
We get to the bridge, Joe pulls his recorder out of his pocket and puts it on the ground when I wasn’t looking then said, “hey I found it.”
I walk over to where he is and he says, “So it’s actually not Madison on this recorder…”
He pressed play and it was our song…. At this point I think I finally realized what was about to happen, Joe said some more really sweet things, that I can’t quite remember, and the next thing I know he got down on one knee, and I think I said, “YEAH!!”
I was completely shocked and oh so excited!! So much so that a few seconds later Joe had to say, “So, do you want to put the ring on?” I did, I loved it, and it fit perfectly!
Then Joe says, “now, no one knows about this and I have one more surprise, so lets wait to call people for just a minute.” He then blind folded me, and we drove to his sister’s house where he had planned a surprise engagement party! Our family and roommates were all there, and the night could not have been more perfect!!
June 13, 2009 is the big day! Everyone save the date!
