Ashley was supposed to meet up some coworkers at Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Rockets game. At the last minute, her coworkers bailed and weren't able to come. Buffalo Wild Wings aka BDubs is one of Ashley's favorite places, so she decided to stay and watch the game with some beer and wings, anyway.
She was sitting at the bar watching the game when an older man walked up and sat to the left of her. She cussed in Spanish because of a play in the game, and the man took that as his cue to show interest in her "knowing Spanish" to spark up a conversation with her. He was not only bothering her while she was trying to enjoy the game, but was also talking about Spanish HISTORY! After about 5 minutes of 'conversation', Johnny arrived and sat 2 chairs down to the right of Ashley at the bar. He had just gotten off work and wanted to relax with some Rockets, wings, and beer.
The older man went to the bathroom, and Ashley took that as her moment to find an escape from the situation. She looked over to Johnny and asked him if he was going for the Rockets. He was shocked and confused that someone would ask if they're going for the Rockets; of course you go for the Rockets! Smiles were exchanged, and the conversation kept going. The older man returned to find he had been replaced by a younger, attractive man. Realizing he had no chance, the older man paid his tab and left. After the man left, Ashley told Johnny about the whole thing and joked about Johnny not saving her sooner. They talked and laughed the rest of the game and exchanged numbers as they walked out of the bar together. Little did they know, that was the beginning of the rest of their lives together.
It was September 3, 2016, and Johnny & Ashley were celebrating the gender reveal of baby Amora at their new home. The get-together had started around 3pm and went on into the evening. It was about 6:30pm. Some friends and family had left, leaving just Ashley's family from Louisiana, her siblings, and mother. Music was playing, and everyone was chatting and drinking (except Ashley, of course). Al Green's "Love and Happiness" came on just as Johnny walked up to Ashley. She thought he wanted to dance with her, per usual. They danced and got a little silly. The music then stopped, and Johnny grabbed Ashley's hands. He started saying how there was something he had been wanting to do, needing to do. He proclaimed his love for her and their newfound baby as he kissed her belly. He then got down on one knee, and Ashley was in shock! He pulled the little box out of his pocket and opened it to reveal a beautiful engagement ring.
