Over the weekend, my boyfriend Matt and I headed down to Arizona to visit my parents (they're snowbirds) along with my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. Turns out, it wasn't just a family vacation...
On Friday, my dad, brother, Matt and I all went golfing at the golf course in my parent's neighborhood. On the last two holes, my mom, sister-in-law and niece and nephew all came up to watch. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but it turns out they came up so Megan (my sister-in-law) could give the ring to Matt.
On the 18th green, Matt had my niece Mila (my niece) bring the ring over to me and I was completely oblivious. I thought maybe it was a necklace or something because my birthday is today, so I was kind of careless with it... The rings popped out of the box and onto the green. Matt made his way over to pick up the rings, and I was shocked when he got down on one knee. However, NOBODY was more shocked than my mom. (See the glorious photo below!)
**Matt would like it noted that he chipped out of the sand to make birdie on the hole.
You can see the play-by-play (for the most part) in the video below. My mom looks like she's having a come to Jesus moment, you see me drop the rings, and my brother didn't see his son Gaborik standing there so he knocked him over. It's so chaotic and there's so much going on, but it's so real and I wouldn't have it any other way. Especially with my family there to celebrate with me.
