Keiser's Role A column by Trevor Keiser

She said 'yes'

June 16, 2010 - I took a trip to Georgia Memorial Day weekend to once again see my "Georgia Peach." The trip resulted in me no longer just being in a relationship, but now I'm engaged to get married.

I knew when I came home after my first trip in March, she was my wife to be. It was just a matter of time, to come up with the money for the ring, ask her father for his blessing, and "pop the question."

I thought I wasn't going to be able to propose until sometime in the fall when I got the ring paid off. However, the saleman at "Every Kiss Begins with Kay" was very accommodating.

I put a down payment on the ring and bought an insurance plan, so I didn't have wait until I paid it off.

Wondering how I proposed? While eating Taco Bell with a friend one night, I grabbed a few packets of hot sauce, one of which said "Will You Marry Me?"

It was there I had an epiphany and knew I wanted to incorporate the hot sauce packet into the proposal.

With a mutual love for Taco Bell, Jenny and I had a "Taco Bell Picnic" in a park lined up for Saturday, May 29. Having already asked her father for his blessing earlier that morning and with the ring burning a hole in my pocket, I was ready to take a knee.

Since Jenny is pretty good at figuring things out, I tried my best to throw her off. I handed her a "Premier Jewelry" box that looked as if it contained a necklace or bracelet. Inside however was a handful of "Will You Marry Me" hot sauce packets.

It was then I pulled the ring box from my pocket got on one knee, looked her in the eyes, spoke a few heart felt words and asked the question. She said "yes" and has made me the happiest man on earth.

If you would have told me a year ago I would have a girlfriend and two months later a fiancee, I probably would have laughed at you. God has once again shown his faithfullness to me and given a blessing beyond measure.
