Engagement.

Well, some of you who are already Facebook friends with me or follow me on Twitter know this, but I just had to share with all my bloggy friends too. . . .

Alex and I got engaged last night!!!

I don't think I could possibly be more excited. We had shopped for a ring way back in December, the monthly statements started coming for it in late January, and I patiently waited (well, maybe not that patiently, I did ask Alex several times if he was taking me anywhere romantic and also told him once or twice that the ring finger on my left hand was feeling extra light and maybe he could help me weigh it down a little, but I digress).


Anyway, last night after we ate some super delicious dinner (seriously, everyone needs to make this lasagna, it's the best), Alex suggested that we look at the "Alex & Jen Scrapbook." Scrapbooking is my other crafty hobby and I had started this scrapbook after we started dating. So, we are looking at it and we get to the last page and he turns it and there is a scrapbook layout that my dear Alex made!

He said it took him five hours to make and he had to go on the internet to figure out how to make it and he had to steal my scrapbooking supplies! I don't think I have ever loved a page in any of my scrapbooks more. It was so perfect. Crafty and super cute!

There we are looking at the scrapbook page, and he gets down on one knee and says all those things you wait your whole life to hear and pulls the ring out of his pocket! Even though I knew that an engagement was looming I was super surprised. It could not have been better.
So, now all the big decisions start to come into play. Like how much of my wedding do I knit?? :)

Happy knitting!

  2. Congratulations!! :-D I vote knitting a pretty wrist purse. My bff made me one for my wedding and it was amazing. I put lots of little things in it that I wanted close (but didn't have pockets) like my handkerchief.

  4. Congrats. This is the miost unique way to propose that I have ever heard of. Also remember that you can not expect the honeymoon to last more than 10 or 11 years, after that the work starts.

  5. Congratulations! My bestie and her guy just got engaged as well, so there must be something in the air this spring. Hopefully this means it isn't too far behind for me also. :-)

    P.S. I'm her maid of honor, so I'm already trying to figure out if I can knit anything for the bridesmaids, and of course, their gift. I'll be keeping an eye out for ideas!

There may be the Gucci logo design on the belt bottom.

This black leather-based belt steps 1.6 ins wide which is offered at an amount regarding $325.00. Before getting such a stylish belt, you must determine his size. Measure over the waistband regarding his pants and also size-up 1-2 sizes. Now this kind of gear is actually offered by an entire range of sizes.
