I had the opportunity to interview Kendall Whitson on her relationship, proposal, and future plans. This romantic birthday proposal is definitely one for the books - ya did good Ryan!
Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Stuck!
How did you & Ryan meet?
Ryan and I met through mutual friends at a local bar in Denton, Texas.
How long have you been together?
We have been together for 3 years.
When did you know he was the one?
I don't remember the exact moment or maybe it was just slowly over time, but every time I pictured my future, Ryan was always the one.
How did he ask you to marry him? Tell us the story!
It was on my 24th birthday!
After an extremely long work day, we met at an On The Border to have dinner with my family. Everyone was acting super weird - they all made an excuse to end the night early, so we headed home. Ryan and I were in separate cars, so he sped off & I followed. When we got home I saw him run inside the house. He usually helps me bring in all of my teaching bags, so I waited for him to come back out... he never did. So I went inside & this is where it gets good...
My whole living room was filled with balloons. Attached to each balloon was a picture of us from all of the years we've been dating. Obviously my heart was already melted thinking he ended my birthday with such a cute surprise, but there was still no Ryan. So I kept walking... all of the lights were off except for the hallway, which was lined with candles. Then at the end of the hallway, there was Ryan... on one knee. Next thing I knew "Kendall, will you marry me?" happened. &&&& a big YESSSS, OF COURSE I WILL MARRY YOU! Now I'm the future Mrs. Stuck!
Did you see the proposal coming?
Welllllll, I accidentally read a text from my mom to Ryan about possible engagement plans, but I thought it was going to be later this year!
Has a date been set?
June of 2017
How did you decide on the date?
We actually couldn't agree on a date. We chose a couple months that were possible with our schedules, and we drew out of a hat! June it was!
Are you excited to get started on wedding planning?
I'm excited about the experience of it all, but planning isn't my strong point in life. Pinteresting is fun though!
What are you most excited about?
Honestly, I'm not really a big wedding person... I suck at details (thank goodness I have you), so what I'm most excited about is really just Ryan. He's the best guy I know and the best friend I could ever ask for. I'm so so excited that during every stage of my future, I get to have Ryan by my side.
Any relationship advice?
Be a team. Work together & always put the team first :)
