I Said Yes!!

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.
