Angela and Robbie’s engagement pics at Buhlow Lake
How did you two meet?
So, one Sunday morning at church, Robbie’s mom mentioned she wanted to introduce me to one of her sons. However, at the time, I didn’t think she had any sons. The next Sunday Robbie came to church with his parents. However, he was sick-as-a-dog. I remember he coughed most of the sermon. It sounded terrible. After church I usually talk to my parents and extended family for a bit, but I wanted to say hello to Robbie before he left. And, hello was all I got to say. We exchanged greetings, but I turned to hug my Great Uncle Bill, and when I turned back Robbie was gone. I think I saw the dust cloud settling in his wake. He felt so sick and didn’t want to make a bad first impression. Without another word, he ran away. I still tease him all the time that his initial reaction was to run away from me.
My first thought, though, was that he didn’t know about the set-up. So, I did what any 21st century girl would do. I Facebook-stalked him. I finally bucked up the courage, and I messaged him that same afternoon. After chatting for a while on Facebook and text messages, we finally met for a first date right after the new year of 2015.
Tell us all about the proposal!
I graduated pharmacy school this May 14th. I had to be in Monroe, LA, for the 13th and the 14th for a weekend full of nonstop graduation craziness. Because I had to be on campus for 9 AM on the 13th, I was set to leave the 12th and stay in a hotel. Robbie called and asked if I had left yet. I wasn’t exactly sure where the hotel I was staying at was, and I wanted to get there during the daylight hours. However, Robbie asked me to wait to leave for just a bit. He had something up his sleeve, but he needed time to finish it. Turns out, the elements were against him, and he couldn’t finish it. We’re both big fans of the BBC show ‘Doctor Who’, and he had purchased a life-size 3D replica of the T.A.R.D.I.S. His intention was to step out of the T.A.R.D.I.S. and drop to one knee. However, it was made of cardboard, and the wind kept blowing it over. So, instead of having four walls and a roof, my T.A.R.D.I.S. had one wall and a police officer behind it who had volunteered to hold it up.
