Jennifer + Aaron

What was your first date?: We met in college through Mizzou's rock climbing club. The club took a trip to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in Arkansas. We spent the weekend climbing sun up to sun down, hiking, and sitting around the bonfire getting to know each other . Once we got back to Columbia we made plans to do an "official" date. We went out to dinner at Addison's and then followed that up with Sparky's ice cream. It was a great first date, considering we did not have the awkward moments of trying to get to know each other.

How did he propose?: Aaron and I had been talking about getting engaged for a long time. We decided that last summer would be a perfect time. Aaron told me that he wanted me to come with him to look at rings so that we could get the right one. We found THE ring at the first store we went to. Later that week, Aaron and I went down to his family's cabin in southern Missouri. I could hardly wait to wear the ring, so I anticipated a proposal while we were down there. We were walking along the Black River and both kinda stopped. I noticed Aaron looking around, looking nervous. He later said that it was at that moment that he realized the ring was in his pocket and that this was the moment. I couldn't stand him being nervous so I asked him what was in his pocket. He laughed, got down on one knee, popped the question, and I said yes!

Is there a tv show you two can't miss?: We're on a Lost kick right now, but also: Girls, Orange is the New Black, Brooklyn nine-nine.

Any pets?: We have Truman, a black lab mix, and Goldie, a golden retriever/great pyrenees mix. Can you tell we love Mizzou? A black and a gold dog!?
