Jessica was training with Milton’s boss at the time and made a few comments about him. Somehow the word traveled to Milton and he asked Jessica on a very romantic “cardio” date! Jessica reluctantly said yes, not because she didn’t want to go on a date with him, but the treadmill did not sound like the best date in the world! Luckily, the first date was wings and beer. That was much better.
“It was a rare occasion that our families were able to be together with my family in Louisiana and Milton’s family in Texas. Thanksgiving is the one time throughout the year that we host for both families. Many would think that Milton would pop the question right before we blessed the food, or maybe while everyone was sitting for dinner, but that wasn’t the case. With being from different states, we also root for different teams. Milton decided to pop the question right before it was the DeBates vs the Lewis’ (or more commonly known as LSU vs A&M)! It made for fun photos.”
Congratulations to the happy couple from all of us at Uptown Diamond!
