I’m Engaged!

Last night, after almost seven and a half years, Joe proposed!

He really wanted to go out on a date so I did my hair at my mom’s then came back home to his house to change and do my make up. We went to Outback and then a local arcade, Bonkers, where I kicked his butt in skee ball. When we got home I opened the front door and there were rose petals going up the stairs.


The petals went right to our bedroom. When I opened the door there were balloons all over and at the end of each ribbon was a picture of us from some point in our relationship.


On the wall in glow in the dark paint were the words ‘marry me?’


At this point I’m laugh/crying. So I turn around and Joe starts to give his speech and he gets down on one knee and held up this ring.

Of course I said yes. How could I not?

My Baby Birdies

When we finally decided to take down one of Christmas wreaths that was still up in March we found that a bird had started to build a nest so we left it up.

Now they’re gone and I’m experiencing empty nest syndrome.

My little girl is so cute. In fact, she’s so cute I thought I’d share a few pictures with you.

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Mary loves photography. A lot. I’m not sure where she got the idea, but she decided that she wanted to have a photo scavenger hunt. She got a list of things to find together about six months ago so that she would forget what they were.¬†On the day of the hunt we all met at her apartment and split in to three groups of four. We were each given a list of things to get pictures of, most including ourselves. Each item on the list was given a point value, some with bonuses and every picture had a 5+ points if all four members of the group were in it. We were then give just over two hours to drive around town and get the pictures. We’re thinking this is going to become an annual event. Anyway, here are some of the pictures.

Frolicking through a garden (+10 for every member clicking their heels)

Sit with a family while they're eating dinner (bonus points for thumbs up)

Stealing candy from a child (bonus points if they're crying)

Team wearing lampshades/Team playing Twister

A member in the back of a police car (+100 if they handcuffed you, but she wouldn't)
