How did you meet?
Our Job with Avis Budget Group
How long have you dated?
Since 2009 but he says we were not officially until 2010 (we argue about it all the time lol)
How did he propose?
Tommy wanted to purpose on two occasions but they did not work out in his favor. First time he took me on a moonlit boat ride on Lady Bird Lake (Downtown Austin) but the ring had not came yet. Then the Second time we went to a Adult Night at a local water park but when we went to eat at the restaurant the waiter did not treat us right. So I was getting fussy. So he decided not to go through with it that night. The next day (Sunday) I was on pintrest and I wanted to show him this ring and instead of coming to the computer he walked straight outside. I was like oooookay lol but when he came back in he walked over to my mom and then he walked over to me and turned me around. I looked at him confused and he said “You know I love you right?” and I said “yea?” So he starts getting down on one knee and I was like omg! his hand started shaking and he pulls out a box I didnt even want to look down! I was so excited. Then he asks me “Will you marry me?” of course I said yes!
When did you know he was the one?
I knew after about a few months of us talking. I really like everything about him. He gives the greatest advice, He actually listens to little complaints and he makes me laugh all the time.
What is the cutest thing he has done for you without you asking?
EVERYTHING! He’s brought me flowers on random occasions, I’d leave something at home he’ll bring it to my job without me even asking him too. It’ll completely surprise me. He’ll buy little random clothes, or panties for me. It’s all the little things and I love them all.
What is something you love about him that has completely changed your life?
His presence in my life. I love his smile, his hardworking personality, charismatic, beautiful smile, the way he laughs, his serious stare, the way he loves me!
