Plastic cups + fence = Marriage proposal, Texas-style

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX

Krystal Salazar said "yes" both times, including Tuesday's wedding proposal outside Ray High School in Corpus Christi.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports Johnny Mata Jr. had help from friends in using cups inserted into the fence to spell: "KRYSTAL ... MARRY ME?"

Mata and Salazar, who've known each other since sixth grade, work for the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio. They returned to Corpus Christi to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Mata arranged for a relative who drives a limousine to pick up the pair and swing by the school. That's when Mata then got down on one knee and produced a ring.
