I'm Engaged!

Okay, so, I know I usually use this blog to talk about larger issues that I think will be of importance or fascination to other people (and maybe sometimes I fail miserably, and no one cares--whatever). The point is that I'm going to deviate from that today, and share something that is entirely personal that only belongs to me:

I'm engaged!

Last Friday, I came home to a scavenger hunt that ended with a proposal, and two promises that will begin a lifetime together. How crazy! So, after celebrations and congratulations are through, it will be time to plan a wedding.

Being a planner by nature (seriously, I'm not good at spontaneity), I already want to have everything planned yesterday, even though we haven't even been engaged for a week yet.  I already know that planning this wedding will pose some struggles for me.  It's going to be really hard to just relax and enjoy the process, though that is what I am, more or less, absolutely determined to do. We'll see how that goes, though.  I can already feel the stress bearing down on me--there are so many things to plan

Also, so many pounds to lose.  I've been "trying" to lose weight for awhile now--on August 4th, I joined a three month weight loss competition at my place of employment, and while I was trying, I wasn't really trying.  Now, aside from the $2,000 cash prize for first place (and not having to give up $100 of my hard earned cash), I have a new incentive: fitting into a wedding dress!

So far this week, I've walked over 6 miles (choosing to walk to work today), and I was sick on Monday.  So, I'm hoping I can stick with it, and shed all the pounds I've been meaning to by the big day... or the last fitting!


  1. I love your ring! Congrats again. Can't wait to discuss wedding stuff with you over birthday cupcakes!


    1. Thank you! I love it, too! yes, birthday cupcakes!! Let me know what works for you--hopefully we can find a day we don't have bday stuff, haha. :D
