:heart:....HAD TO SHARE.......Our son asked his gf of 6yrs... to marry him !!! They have know each other since they were 3yrs old !!!!

My Poor son, Michael..was sooooooo nervous & anxious...we were all tryin to help him out w/s uggestions...as to how to ask her.....yesterday was her birthday...I suggested get  cupcakes from her FAV bakery & have them write on each cupcake....MARRY ME...M on 1 cupcake....A on another..etc & in the middle has them sprinkle "pixie dust" on the biggest one & place the diamond on that one....he liked the idea...but was nervous bout transporting the cupcakes down the Cape...where they are now...The he wanted to do "The ole walk along beach..at sundown" thing & give her the ring.......then thier friends said they were coming down in the PM......so that plan went out the window!!

 Soooooooo....he was REALLY Romantic......lool........went up her house at 6:30 am (he could'nt sleep" got her a coffee...she was half asleep.....she asked him if he was alright......he said  NO....cuz I need u in my life forever....& opened "THE BOX"...The the water works started..& ....THEN she asked HIM......ARE YOU SURE ???.........then they started laughing hysterically.....she said I have to go get my glasses...cuz..I really can't see it !!!........2 GOOF BALLS !!!!!!

They were both at our house at 8:00 am.....with the biggest grins...that I think nothing could ever wipe it off thier faces....I never thought to take a picture....urgghhhhh !!!  The ring is at the jewler's now..get sized....Tuesday...she WILL have a diamond on her finger !!!!!

THE CATCHER IS.....the diamond is MY MOTHER's Marquise...my son asked if he could use it ..."FOR NOW" & will upgrade later on when $$ is more available.....of course I said YES...it was just sitting there.....my mother would have wanted..her only grandson (that she never got to meet) to  use her ring.....her parents were touched by that fact...so was Sarah. !!!   I asked my brother what he thought...he was totally onboard !  The day before  Michael gave Sarah the ring....outside a store I saw 2 pennies on the ground....sitting perfectly side by side..I always p/u pennies...I said to myself...it is my mom & dad saying hello ......when I got home & ...put on my glasses'to look at the date.........it was 1977....THAT was the year my mom died !!!!!!!!.......DID U GET THE CHILLS YET ???!??... I dam near fell over !!!...I swear that was my mom telling me....she was giving her blessings too !!! The night before.."THE EVENT"..I said a lil prayer to my mom....asking her to send me a sign that she approves of this...next day ...I found the pennies........I truly believe in the pennies from heaven thing !!!........My Mom & Dad  was here with us, for this happy ocassion!!!

The "kids are down The Cape for the week.....so I can't say anything on FB...as I want Sarah to be the 1 to make "THE ANNOUNCEMENT".....I am not gonna be the pushy MIL...as I am friends w/ alot of her friends....so for now....I HAVE to keep it under my hat.............I AM GONNNA BURST!!!   So I am exploding here !!

Thanks my friends...for listening to me !!!  FINALLY a happy ocassion !!! Did feel badly for DD#3 (the 1 that is living w/us) she seemed really quiet...she hugged her brother & Sarah & said congrats & was smiley...but after awhile she seemed abit distracted.....as we NEVER made a deal about her engagement ( as she was in TX...w/him)...she bought her wedding dress down there..by herself & came home to get marrie...to THE IDIOT....we were NOT thrilled & STILL are not w/him !  She realizes now why we did'nt like him....DID feel badly for her  tho !!  

Rambling again...gatta run...things to do...before Matthew, Shannon & Cameron & DD#1 come swimming.....

If u are still reading this thanks....lol !!!

YAY!!! How exciting!!! Your family really needed something GOOD to happen!!! So happy for all of you!!! Pretty cool about the pennies too!!

Can understand your DD3 having mixed feelings. Sad, but her life will get better in time.
