News

Saturday turned out to be another one of those perfect Saturdays when I move effortlessly from one fun event to the next. I met with my running group, then came home to discover I had the place to myself, which always means I take the opportunity to watch stupid romantic comedies and episodes of Sex & The City. This time, I watched Ms. Potter. (I feel dumb, but when I decided to watch that movie I was thinking that Beatrix Potter was the woman who wrote Mary Poppins, and then five minutes into the movie when Ms. Potter referred to Peter Rabbit, I started thinking she was the woman who wrote Winnie The Pooh...and then like 10 minutes later I realized she wrote The Tale Of Peter Rabbit. Anyway.)

Then I went out to get my hair cut. And then I met my darling friend Shannon for lunch. And then I stuffed myself full of avocado eggrolls from Cheesecake Factory and washed them down with two mojitos. Then I followed Shannon around Urban Home while she bought stuff for her apartment.

Then I got home, and while holding my stomach and moaning about the size of my foodbaby and how I thought at any moment I might barf and how I am a total fat ass, I bombarded Devin with the story of how I'd found the perfect couch while I was out and it is on sale. But he didn't seem terribly interested and so I wandered into the bedroom, where I was alarmed to find that the attached bathroom reeked from the litter box. So as I continued rubbing my giant belly and wailing about how full I was and about the disgusting state of the bathroom, Devin came into the bedroom. And sat on the bed. And handed me the most beautiful ring I have ever seen in my life. And proposed.

Yes, turns out someone is willing to spend the rest of his life dealing with me.

Seriously!

I'm engaged!

Something tells me your wedding planning stories are going to be ridiculous. Yea!

peter- Thank you and thank you.

j-money- Yes, if only I'd known this formula earlier....think of all the eggrolls i've been missing out on.

not lisa- I know, I'm conflicted because I don't want to have a wedding planning obsessed blog, but I just might need to talk about it.

Congrats Fellow Blogger!

Some unsolicited advice though: Don't expect your MOH to invite her sister as her Plus One.
