It seems Stephanie Smith – the New York Post writer who was on a mission to make 300 sandwiches for her boyfriend – didn’t need 300 meat-cheese-bread combinations after all. At 256 sandwiches, he put a ring on it.
Eric Shulte proposed to Smith while on their Barbados vacation alongside blue water, a pool, a heart made out of flower petals, (and a photographer?).
Smith says Shulte is “full of surprises.” She writes on her blog:
The day after I arrived in Barbados, E had a big shocker for me: he asked me to marry him.
I was working on sandwich #257. I guess neither one of us could wait until #300.
I said yes, by the way.
Words cannot express how extraordinarily happy I am. Not because I have a engagement ring, but because I’m going to spend the rest of my life having ridiculously amazing adventures with my soul mate.
My mouth hurts from smiling.
E, I love you more than anything. I’m so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you.
By the way, the deciding sandwich was the “Kite Surf Fuel” arepas with cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, tomato, and onion.
