Engagement Pictures

It has been a few months now since we got engaged and we still haven’t taken engagement pictures.  We didn’t set an exact date and we didn’t throw the party since it was winter, so we decided to put it off for a while.  But, now that we are finally having the party we thought it was about time to make the official announcement.  We plan to have a few shots done professionally, but that will still wait a bit longer.  We set up our tripod and camera timer the other night and had fun snapping a bunch of shots.  We thought we would show off the one we picked to go in the local paper:

Now our announcement is also official to all of you out there in blog world as well!

Here’s the whole little fam:

A Toast

January 13, 2009 at 9:27 am (Wedding Plans) (, , , , , , , , )

After we finished telling all of our family and friends of the engagement yesterday, we went to Tony’s parents’ house to show them the ring.  They had champagne and two very cute champagne glasses waiting for us!  We toasted, talked and celebrated…blog-pics-10-008


I am so excited to be welcomed into this family!  Thank you so much to my parents-in-law-to-be!

P.S. We do not know much about the champagn glasses.  They say David Douglas on the bottom, but I could not find any info on them.  The black area is ribbed and feels almost like an old record.  There is also a piece in the bottom that turns and says On/Off.  We have no clue!

Fat Rock!

Yes, its true!  I’m engaged!  Tony proposed to me last night.  It was so unexpected, and so sweet.  We do not yet have an exact date, but are considering late August in 2010.  I told myself not to get too excited, and to hold off on the planning, but that really isn’t going to happen.  I have already been writing down ideas and scouring the blog world.  We are considering a black and white color scheme, with either dark teal or red accents.  I would also love to do a vintage touch (doesn’t that sound like us!?).  I, of course, will continue to blog on our home and decor ideas and projects, but there might be some random wedding ideas here too!  Fill me in on any ideas!  Here is a picture of the ring.

Its a vintage square diamond turned on an angle.  Pictures don't do it justice- its gorgeous!
