Two BIG Annoucements!

Believe it or not, I'm keeping this one short and sweet. (I know, I've said that before, and it never happens.) But I've got two BIG announcements (Ok, one is WAY bigger than the other, at least to me!)

Announcement #1

Congratulations to Kate at To The Square Inch-she's the winner of my 100 Follower Giveaway and lots of fun goodies!


Also, make sure to check out her blog (it's one of my faves!)

Now, on to my next announcement (and my personal favorite)!

Announcement #2

Matthew proposed tonight (last night?)!!! We're officially engaged!!! I'm super excited, and let me tell you, that was a proposal for the books. SERIOUSLY awesome. But I'm tired and don't have the energy to type it all up (and that would make this a LOOONNNGGG post)-but you better believe that it's coming.

Until then, I'll leave you with a couple pictures from this evening-the BEST night ever.


  1. Wow!! Congrats!! The ring is beautiful!

  25. Congratulations! How exciting!!! I saw your guest blog post at Amber's blog. I am a new follower.


  26. I found you from your guest post. Congratulations on your engagement. How wonderful is that proposal and gorgeous ring. I too got married in the fall, September 23 of last year, and it was only one month into the school year. The original plan was the end of the following January, but about 3 months before we decided to move it up. I hadn't really done anything to that point and completely changed my entire color scheme and plan. I can honestly tell you that a wedding in a short amount of time can be done. It was a bit stressful at times, but it was so worth it. We got married on a Friday and then I took that Monday off as well to take a mini honeymoon. You could always take a day or two off and then go on a honeymoon during the summer.

    Congrats again and have a great time planning :)
