Sometimes plans change. Seth had a plan for proposing to Allison. He would take her and their dogs to the dog park where they first met. This plan changed when Allison’s parents visited for Christmas. Seth asked for their blessing the first day of their visit. Allison’s mom started hinting she “wished the proposal would happen during their visit so she could see her baby engaged.” Seth, knowing how important Allison’s parents are to her, changed the plan.
Seth decided to surprise Allison with breakfast in bed and a proposal. This is not an easy task as Allison is a light sleeper and an early riser. Seth fibbed and said he was going to stay up to play video games when really he planned to sleep on the couch. Allison went to bed and Seth did his best impression of the Grinch sneaking the items he would need outside. Seth cooked their go-to breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast on the grill. He even made the egg into a heart shape.
Breakfast made, he snuck in the bedroom to wake up Allison. As Seth was kneeling down, Allison woke up. He proposed. Before saying yes, she asked, "are you serious?" Then Seth asked if she wanted to see the ring. She nodded yes and promptly gave Seth her right hand. He gently reminded her he needed her other hand – then on went the ring!
