Our Proposal Story: An amazing race
Our anniversary is April 4, 2006. For this 4th anniversary, I planned a surprise scavenger hunt/amazing race type of day to celebrate. I enlisted the help of the friend who introduced us and asked her to show up saturday morning. even our friend had no idea what I had planned for the day. <p>- To start things off, I gave LeeJean the first clue for the scavenger hunt. At each location, there would be a clue for the next stop, and a small AMAC box (a clear plastic box found at the Container day. <p>- To- store). <p&- gt; Here is a run-down of the locations and the items that they retrieved a long the way:

I told her there was a certain order to all of the boxes. After a bit of rearranging, I told LeeJean I needed one more minute to set things up. as she hid out in the bathroom for 45 seconds, I flipped each box on its side, turned off all of the lights and turned on the blacklight and asked LeeJean to come back in.

On the bottom of each box, I had written a letter in invisible ink that shines bright under a blacklight. It spelled out the following: W I L L Y O U M A R R Y M E I had my blue nile ring ready and turned on the lights so she could see her new ring. And the rest they say is history.
