How Jomy Proposed with a Knock Knock Joke

This is the story of how Jomy proposed with a Knock Knock joke.

When Ashley surprised Jomy with a trip to Vegas for his 30th birthday trip for him and his best friend, Jomy who was already making proposal plans, decided to up the ante with a The Heart Bandits proposal.
When Ashley arrived at rooftop terrace, she had a feeling something was up.
Only because during Jomy‘s trip to Vegas he called Ashley and started telling her about his future plans.  To which she responded, “don’t talk to me that way if we’re not engaged,” and then he accidentally hinted that it would happen soon.

But still, she had no idea that Jomy had flown in from Texas earlier that day.
While dating, Ashley and Jomy would always send jokes to each other during the day.  So it was fitting that Jomy’s proposal involved a Knock, Knock joke.  A lot of effort & personal touches went into the proposal.
Knock!  Knock!
Who’s there?!
Will?

Jomy hid in a corner when Ashley arrived and then popped up with the final sign.

Jomy also created the pink heart for his @theheartbandits proposal. He made this pink heart by arranging each rose petal, which he had torn off of a fake flower purchased from Michael’s.  But when he thought about the proposal being on a rooftop, he realized it might be windy so he purchased a hot glue gun & spent 3hrs hot gluing each petal to a heart shaped white plastic cloth.

But wait, there’s more!

Below are the steps he took to create the pink heart:

  • He found a heart template on the internet.
  • Printed out the heart, then using a pen he traced a heart outline onto a white plastic tablecloth he purchased.
  • Then cut out the stenciled heart.
  • Then he purchased a hot glue gun.
  • Then he hot glued the pink petals onto the white stenciled heart.

While recounting the story, he told Ashley, “I lost a lot of testosterone creating that heart.”

Ashley and Jomy met online on OKCupid.

He knew the day that he met her that she was the one.

She knew when he met her parents and they were so obsessed with him, she thought they loved him more than her.

What attracted her to him was his witty online profile, which simply stated, “I’m a professional drug dealer (aka pharmacist)”  So is she, so it was a perfect fit.

 

Loved capturing their proposal story beautifully planned by The Heart Bandits.
