Graduation party

In May, Tom had two nephews that graduated, one from 8th grade and one from high school. His sister, Marta, had a huge party to celebrate!

Her backyard was set up so beautiful!

In the front, there was a live band (you can see tent they were under to the right).

In the front, there was also a volleyball net set up.

Tom and Elliott sweating outside....

It was a great party!

Show Us Your Life...Engagement Story

So, Kelly's Korner is doing engagement stories...I was definitely one of those girls who knew it was coming. We had been talkig about it for a while. However, I THOUGHT he had no where near enough money to purchase a ring yet....I was wrong :).

It was Friday, March 6, 2009. We work at the same place so I went down to his office to see what he was doing right after work. He wasn't there? What? He never leaves without telling me first? His boss, who NEVER really talks to me, informs me that he sent him out on a shop (he's a pricing manager so he has to "shop" our competition)...well, ok, why didn't he tell me? oh well.

I get to my house and he is there...very nervously there. He tells me he has a surprise, we are going downtown for the night. Our friend Melody is taking care of our pets so to pack a bag. I KNEW it then; this was sooo unlike him, especially the nervous part.

We went to the Madison Hotel downtown. We went on the rooftop and he proposed on one knee at sunset. It was perfect. Turns out, EVERYONE already knew.

We wanted to go to good restaurant to celebrate but he hadn't been able to make reservations because he didn't know our we ended up eating at TGI Fridays...ha!...that was ok, I just stared at my ring most of the time anyway! :)

It was a perfect engagement!
