It doesn't surprise us that Jim Bob got down on one knee before pulling out the sparkler he picked out for his bride-to-be! But, a public proposal isn't for everyone. Getting engaged is one of the most special and intimate moments of your life. Not every gal wants to share that with her mom and dad and whoever else happens to be in the room. (Don't get me started on that Jumbotron business either!) 

Fortunately, Michelle loved it and called the moment one of her "favorites." Obviously she said "Yes!" and 19 Kids & Counting later, Mrs. Duggar says it's been a "wonderful journey."

But imagine if she hadn't been inclined to accept the proposal? That would sure have made for an awkward Christmas Eve for everyone! 

Were you proposed to in public? If so, how did you feel about it?
