    Hey all!

    UPDATE (8/24/18): I HAVE FOUND THE PROPOSAL PIN. Actually, I bought it a while back but didn't think to update the post :p We also have a tentative date in mind, but we'll see when we can get a venue reserved.

    ~~~

    As some of you may have picked up a transition in some of my posts and @speedwaystar1 noticed, I AM LOCKED DOWN (in the best way possible haha)

    You might have seen my trusty ol’ boyfriend in various pics helping me in DSF releases and PTD flips, or ironing out fabric for my... I mean, our... pin boards, or sitting around sipping a giant margarita while I’m making my way around my first pin trading event.

    Anyway, Marc kinda sneakily snuck a “demo” that he wanted to share with my friends at my annual Christmas party. Since he’s an electrical/ computer enginerd, I didn’t think that was so out of the blue. He pulled out the iPad and pressed a button. Apparently, his recent coding project has been to program our new HomeKit outlets so one of my favorite Pink Martini songs played on the TV while the lights changed into a more intimate arrangement. Then, he gets into the mushy stuff.. all my girl friends and I are squealing... all my guy friends are like ok this is happening (no pressure though! One pair was already married, another already engaged, and the last was planning to get engaged (but only he guy knew at the time... cuz he planned it haha)). Eventually, Marc gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him. Pretty sure I just said thank you and nodded while crying. We hugged and my friends were like wait, did she say yes? DUH! But then Marc was like OH WAIT!! He turns around and pushed another button marked SSY (guess what that means). This button changed the music to my favorite Flo-Rida song and turned on he disco light. PARTY TIME!!!

    Apparently, he and my mom went ring shopping in July. He had purchased it literally a couple days before we flew out to LIAA. Dang, he had a busy summer haha ANNNDDDD he got me a moissanite I had specifically asked for it since it’s more brilliant than a diamond, lab grown, and no blood money

    So... I’ve been passively keeping my eye out for this pin. Cliche, I know. If you have this for sale/ trade, please let me know!!

    Congratulations!

    So, does this mean you will be registering at DSSH, MOG, or other pin stores/locations? Imagine establishing a bridal registry for pins...

    Bouquet of pins, perhaps?

    Or... perhaps a Pin Fund Me Account - interested DPF members can send a pin (any pin) sealed (in an opaque bag - if possible) as a small wedding gift.

    You can have a day of opening pin gifts from the DPF family.

    Oh speaking of which, at the last release, your mom was standing behind us in line. I was talking to @akbecker246 and your mom was like, “Do you live in northridge??” And I was like “uh yes, are you stalking me?” Lolol she proceeded to tell me her daughter was on the forum and mentioned someone getting engaged but not announced yet etc etc haha

    Congrats to you both! What a lovely ring!
