Sizing it all up.
You might say Tiffany and Derrick had a Cinderella fairy tale meeting. She was looking for shoes and Derrick worked in a shoe store. He helped her find the perfect shoes and she slipped him her number as she paid. He called her a few weeks later and the two have been inseparable since.
Knowing she was “The One,” Derrick planned a surprise Christmas Day proposal in front of Tiffany’s family. She thought he was in New Orleans with his family, but he had secretly travelled to Houston where she was visiting her family. Tiffany was totally surprised, but very happy to see him, thinking he was there to see her sick grandmother. She was even more surprised when he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him!
