It's official!  I'm going to be a mother-in-law!!!  DD's now-fiance proposed last night!  He came over a couple weeks ago and showed DH and I the ring and asked our permission.  It has been killing me to keep it a secret for two weeks!  They have been dating for over five years so he is already part of the family. They will get married as soon as she graduates from college in June, 2012, so we have 18 months to plan the wedding of the century!  LOL!

Oh, Christa! That is fabulous! I'm so happy that she chose a man you all already love! I don't know how you kept such an exciting secret for so long...I would have blown a gasket, lol.


You will have to promise you will give us plenty of details during the planning stages so we can all envision this sure to be beautiful wedding!


Congratulations!! Tell your daughter that we are all wishing her the very best!!

Thank you, thank you!  We had a great weekend sharing the news with friends and family.  We probably won't do too much wedding planning until this summer, but I have already put my foot down.  The chocolate fountain is the only thing I will insist on!

We will need many pictures of the weddding of the century.  How wonderful it is to hear someone who loves their future SIL.  Merry Christmas!

Oh, yeah, I love wedding pictures. My cousin's daughter was married last summer, and she posted roughly 800 pictures of her wedding on her facebook page. And I looked at every one! They were gorgeous. So clever and fun, much better than the crap photos I had, back in the Stone Age. 

Put your foot down HARD on that chocolate fountain, Christa. That's where you'll find all of us after we crash the reception!
