FI wasn't very smooth. We live together, so it was kind of hard to hide it. He got off work early one day (unbeknownst to me) drove to Denver to buy my ring, came home at the normal time and said he needed to drive to Denver early Saturday morning -- *without me*. What the crap is in Denver? (We live an hour away). And I was leaving to go back to Ohio the next day for Christmas vacation. So, I knew what he was up to. I was thinking he wanted to propose before I went home for Christmas so I could show off my ring (and I was right...Haha). Saturday, he came home from Denver, told me to get in the car. He drove me up to this place called Horsetooth Reservoir. Gorgeous. Snow capped mountains in the background, a crystal clear lake that acts like a mirror and reflected the mountains. It looked like a Bob Ross painting. We walked around for a bit. Then he got down on one knee and popped the question!
I knew that the proposal was coming, but had no idea when.I was putting grades into my computer in my classroom as my students worked on a project. For some reason, the lights were off in my classroom (I don't remember why) someone turned them on and when I looked over to see who I saw Ken standing there in the doorway. I knew immediately why he was there and was just overwhelmed! He came over to my desk got on one knee and proposed in front of my class. He had worked things out with my prinicpal over the previous week so the prinicipal, guidance counselor, & secretary were all watching from the hallway.
