Mike and I met formally at Brandi's 24th birthday party. I went down to the "guy's" end of the table to be social and ended up meeting Mike. To this day he still thinks I went down there because I was "interested". Shortly after, he spilled his (entire) beer on my leg...but the night got better and eventually my pants dried. After that night we started talking here and there, then a few months later started dating.
As Megan said, we formally met at Brandi Miller's birthday get together. Megan definitely came over to talk to me because she was "interested". She forgot to mention she kept flashing her gorgeous smile at me before coming to sit next to me. I instantly fell Head-Over Heels in love! I begged Brandi to get me in touch with Megan before she left for school. A few months later we were a couple!
I picked up Megan's engagement ring on July 13, 2011 at about 1 PM. The plan was to propose on the 14th. As soon as I had the ring I knew I wouldn't be able to wait. I was overwhelmed with happiness. Today I was going to ask the woman of my dreams to marry me. I got home and started to clean my house to keep my mind clear. I must have looked at the ring 100 times. Megan got home about 9pm. She cooked a pizza while I started a fire and poured us some wine. After dinner, we sat aound the fire for what seemed like forever. We talked for a few minutes. Then her cousin Alicia (bridesmaid) called to talk about the job she was offered at The University of Michigan Hospital. Finally, after about 25 minutes (now 11pm), they were off the phone. I grabbed the ring from my pocket and offered to get Meg more wine. I stood up and said "Before I go in and get it, I have a question for you...". I got down on one knee and asked, "Will you marry me?" She was so excited... she could only say "Oh My Gosh, Oh my Gosh!". As I stared at her she looked at me and said, "YES". I love you Meg! I can't wait to start a family with you!
