Crossfit just got that much cooler. On June 28, 2014 I witnessed the sweetest proposal I've ever seen. Naturally, JP wanted to ask his girlfriend Amanda to marry him at the place that brought them together...at Frisco CrossFit where not only can you build your dream body, you can find the love of your life.
The two started dating and attending the 5:30am class together where JP fell in love with Amanda. He says it's her strong willed personality and determination that made him fall madly in love with her. They are so perfect for each other, they even finish each others sentences!
JP's planned surprise panned out perfectly. About 80 people were in on the secret and all knew that during a 7 minute Burpee WOD they would all drop to the ground at a certain cue in the music. Everyone but Amanda stayed on the ground, she quickly got the hint something was happening and watched as JP started working his magic. Watch the video and find out what happened next! I'll give you one hint....she says yes ;)

I finally proposed to my best friend. Lindsey is the love of my life and I cannot wait to marry her this summer. Not soon enough...
So, Lindsey thought she was going to craft night with my sister, Jil, but little did she know that she was about to get ambushed. Jil distracted her by having her look up directions in her phone while my crew and prepared for her arrival. They pulled into Andy's Frozen Custard (one of our absolute favorite date spots) and she was completely caught off guard. I led her to the lamp that I made for her birthday back in December. The lamp acts like a mailbox for love letters. Every time there's a new letter in the bottom, I'd flip on the light. So, I stole the lamp from her bedroom and brought it to Andy's.
Once she arrived, she read the letter and was completely overwhelmed. Afterwards, we went to my parents house to celebrate with friends and family. Little did she know, her parents came into town a day early for the event. This was the icing on top of the cake as we got to celebrate our proposal with her parents and my family. A day not to be forgotten:)
By the help of Josh Pfaff, Sam Sweet, Taylor High, and Sara Silkwood, we get to relive these memories for years to come. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends. Thank you, guys.
