One of my many awesome happenings since I fell off the wagon is that I got engaged! You know that guy that I had been raving about over the summer? Yeah, that one! We just had our one year dating anniversary a couple weeks ago. Oh how time flies. Well, around Thanksgiving, he popped the question, using my mother's ring which meant a lot to me. Not only was it my mom's but my best friend also wore the ring during her wedding ceremony as her borrowed & blue (the center stone is a sapphire). So needless to say, I'm a happy girl who has spent too much time on pinterest and david's bridal websites as of late. We had a wonderful engagement party thrown by my best friend a few weeks ago. We were so blessed to have shared the day with about 50 friends and family. Of course I cried when we were toasted to (not to mention the sobbing that ensued while I was trying to say a quick thank you to those who came, it was ugly). So that being said, I have been nesting a bit. Eating poorly. Gained a few pounds more than I care to admit. But overall, I have been happier than I can ever remember being. It's been an awesome year in my life. 2012 will be one to remember! Here's a picture of us after a few too many glasses of champagne and a wonderful night of celebration with our nearest and dearest.
