We’ve posted stories on our blog before about proposals taking place in our restaurants, for example, a couple recently at Pinkberry Arlington.
One of the best things about having restaurants and interacting with the public are the wonderful stories that come from experiences customers have inside our restaurants. That’s why we were so thrilled to read a blog from McAlister’s McKinney customer Kim Russell about how her future husband recently popped the question at McAlister’s (it was where they had their first date!).
The picture above is the ring. Here’s a picture of the happy couple:
Kim tells her story much better than I can so here it is, from her blog Turbo Life:
“Were Engaged! I feel totally blessed to have found such an awesome guy to spend the rest of my life with!! He is kind, considerate, affectionate, fun, makes me laugh and loves me for exactly who I am… even the “Mount Kim” mail pile that needs to be filed and a little backseat driving doesnt seem to bother him. Its just awesome!!The proposal was perfect! He invited me to lunch and he re-created the occasion of our first meeting. It was at McAlisters in McKinney near my new house. He brought me a rose like he did on that very first lunch date and we enjoyed a very similar meal, with chicken tortilla soup and a delicious sandwich which we shared this time! Right before we ate, he gave me a precious crystal memento that expressed his love and then after we finished eating, he held my hands so sweetly and spoke from his heart telling me how much he loves me. It was beautiful and a perfect capstone for taking the next step in our relationship. He then presented me with a cute stocking that had an amazingly beautiful pearl and diamond engagement ring. No one else will have one like it… It was breathtaking! Im still on cloud 9… Let our wonderful life begin! The date is set… 2/22/2011!!”
