She Said YES!!



Hi ALL!  I promised you a little while ago that I would share some exciting news with you.  Well, it has been kind of CRAZY around here the last couple of weeks.  The reason we went out of town a little unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago was that a wonderful young man wanted to ask my husband's blessing to marry our daughter.  So off we flew to grant this young man's request.  It has been pretty much a whirlwind ever since.  He asked her the to marry him the following week (10 days ago) and they set a date for September 14th.  I don't mean September 14th 2013...I mean September 14th 2012!!  So ALL has been a flutter around my house.  Oh...and in the mean time I tended two of my grandchildren for five days...soooooo.....forgive me if I haven't kept up with my blog the best and forgive me if I do not keep up my blog the best because I'm kind of frantic right now.  WONDERFUL frantic, but nonetheless FRANTIC!  So in the last 10 days...the ring has been bought, the temple where they will be married scheduled, the reception center scheduled, the dress bought, the bridesmaid outfits bought (well for the most part...still working on shoes), the caterers booked and menu set. and the engagement photos taken.  There is still an ENORMOUS amount to do, but I feel like we at least are making progress.  Oh and just to make things a little more interesting my dad (who will be 93 in Oct.) is moving to a new home to live closer to my brothers and I will taking off to California for a week to help him move.  So life is FABULOUS...CRAZY...WONDERFUL...FABULOUS in my neck of the woods and I hope it is in your neck of the woods, too!  HUGS, Cheryl

  12. Oh my goodness. What a whirlwind. Congrats on your daughter's engagement. So exciting. You can do it. My daughter had 6 weeks from the time she was engaged until the wedding day. We got it all done and it was wonderful. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish in that time.
