300 Sandwiches Woman Got Her Engagement Ring

engagement
Good for her, I guess?

Stephanie Smith, a writer for the New York Post and self-proclaimed foodie made headlines last year for launching her 300 sandwiches project, which revolved around the idea that if she made her boyfriend 300 sandwiches, he would propose. The announcement divided the internet. Some camps applauded her for taking the initiative to get married, while others thought that she was setting women back by decades. We personally thought that everyone missed the point

But all opinions aside, Smith released some news today. Her boyfriend (whom she refers to as E) proposed in Barbados.

 

She stated on her website when announcing the engagement, "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[n] 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."

E proposed when Smith was still 43 sandwiches short of the goal, but he tweeted that he (jokingly, we hope) intends to get her to finish the project.
