Before asking me to marry him, Jason asked for my father’s blessing, and he said yes. Jason picked out the ring, but checked with my sister afterwards to make sure I would like it.
When I came home from work, the apartment was lit with candles and Jason was dressed in my favorite dress shirt. As soon as I walked in the door, “When a Man Loves a Woman” began playing and fireworks lit their television screen. Jason got down on one knee and pulled out a plush Hulk doll with a ring around his little green arm. I started crying and laughing, and said yes. After all of the excitement, we went to The Cave (our favorite Saskatoon lounge) for champagne!
Though this may sound cheesy, it is a montage of sorts; it touches on several of our favorite television shows and engagements that happened in them:
- Friends – After much confusion, Monica proposed to Chandler in a candlelit apartment.
- Two and a Half Men – Walden proposed to Zoe with fireworks and Barry Manilow singing “When a Man Loves a Woman” (since we don’t have the money Walden does, we have youtube and a big television)
- How I Met Your Mother – When Ted proposed to Stella, it was a spur of the moment decision. Since he didn’t have a ring, he gave her a little stuffed kangaroo that he won for her. (Jason couldn’t find a kangaroo but since we both love comic books, The Hulk was a fantastic choice.)
We decided to get married this New Year’s Eve when we are visiting Wisconsin!
