Getting Hitched!



Yes... We are engaged!

He tricked me Friday by telling me he had to "work late on a project up at the IT center" which I never question (government guy with a TS clearance so there are things he just can't tell me...typical D.C.).

Well... it turns out the sneaky guy FLEW to Toledo, Oh to spend the afternoon with my father to ask him for his blessing!

His plans of a Saturday picnic were blown by this silly hurricane Hanna but he was still determined and he set up a picnic for us on the back deck (it's screened in) and surprised me with a fancy cheese/fruit/wine spread and...well....duh... THE RING!

I yelled, cried, cried, called him a trickster, laughed, and cried some more. It was great times. It was truly a perfect day.
