Mallory Anderson Bio
Mrs. Anderson was born Mallory Trtek in Scappoose, Oregon. She is one of the amazing children born to Gary and Natalie Trtek. Derek popped the question on February 22, 2013, at Del Friscos restaurant in Charlotte. Here is how the proposal went in Mallory’s own words..
My sisters and I had just arrived in Charlotte NC after driving cross country from Portland OR. Derek informed my oldest sister Rochelle before we left that he had 1 day off from training camp, and that he just wanted to propose on that day, (which only gave us 3 days to drive 3600 miles!).
My other sisters and I didn’t know why Rochelle was in such a hurry to get to Charlotte. When we arrived in Charlotte, exhausted and dirty, Derek told us he wanted to take us all out to a nice dinner to thank my sisters for driving me all the way out there.
After a much needed nap and shower we headed off to Del Friscos.
We ate like kings and then came the dessert menu. I assured Derek that I was too full to order my FAVORITE strawberry cheesecake dessert, but he insisted I get it. After a few minutes, the manager came over with a silver platter and served me my beautiful ring.
Mallory and Derek married on July 3, 2013 in Bend, Oregon. Their adorable daughter Amelia Blair was born on August 27, 2014.
