My Homerun :)

My boyfriend and I were having a super busy start to the Summer of 2009. We had just graduated college, and were all packed up to move out of state.

We were visiting his family in Detroit, MI before the big move. Well, he's a HUGE Detroit Tigers fan, so we decided to catch a game before we were thousands of miles away.

After a few innings, the thunder and lightning started, and it began to pour. We were both determined to stay, regardless of the length of the rain delay. I was determined to stay because I knew we wouldn't get to do this again for a long time. He was determined, well because, he had something more up his sleeve!

About an hour later, the game started back up, and made it to the 7th inning stretch. During the 7th inning stretch, "Happy Birthday's" & "Thank You's" scroll the score board. My boyfriend was anxiously waiting with the camera in hand, to catch SOMETHING. I was totally confused.

Two minutes later, "I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, WILL YOU MARRY ME?" along with my name came across the score board. My hands clasped my mouth; he pulled the ring out of his pocket, and got down on one knee.

Needless to say, I was completely caught off guard and so surprised! When I called our families and friends to tell them the news, they already knew, I was completely out of the loop. They said they were all on egg shells when they saw that the game was on a rain delay.
