Looks like I may have a SIL... so excited
« on: February 07, 2011, 11:41:15 AM »
My dd's bf called me this morning to tell me that he had just purchased a beautiful engagement ring for my baby girl.  She is going to be soooo excited, he didn't say when or how he is going to propose to her, but I know that he's getting help and support (new thing I guess) from the guys in his squad.  Who knows what he has cooked up.. he did say that he'd like to take us out to dinner so he can speak with us before he proposes.. he stopped for a second and asked.. you are going to tell me it's ok? right?

Ahhh to be young and in love.

Right now it's a beautiful sunny day.. the outside temp is 68 in the shade.. I'm going for a walk around the pond..

Oh, and I know you can't say anything yet, but after it happens I want to be the first to welcome her to the Family in Blue!  Congrats Laurie, I know you like this guy and are happy for DD!

Bf just called me back and said that he'll bring the ring when he takes us out to dinner to chat with dad.  He really is a special guy.. and has cute dimples to boot.  But he has to stop saying yes ma'am like like I'm getting a ticket.

It was a little breezy so I only did one trip around the pond.. so  nice to live right on the walking trail.. but I'll admit I spend more time counting other peoples laps.

I don't think she is appreciating our humor!
