I feel like I need to clarify something I wrote in my last post. I said these words "Jason wants to do as many things as possible by ourselves, and that freaks me out too!"
I honestly meant to delete that. I deleted what followed the statement. I was starting to ramble on about all the things that Jason wants to do by ourselves like making the table decorations, doing the photography and editing photos, designing the invitation, making all the refreshments; basically anything that we can do ourselves so that we don't have to pay someone to do it for us. I deleted the ramblings because I wanted my post to be about the fact that my oldest was engaged. BUT, since I'm rambling now, I'll go into my why in the world would you guys want to do all those things when it's your own daughters wedding shpill... Two reasons: #1 We're 37 and planning a wedding. A wedding! Needless to say, that wasn't in our savings plan! #2 We are grade A do-it-yourselfers! Jason's a plumber, mechanic, the HVAC guy, the maintenance man, the vacuum repair guy, the drywaller, the painter.... (the list goes on and on) We finished the basement by ourselves, did our kitchen remodel by ourselves, any car repairs that he can do, he does. See what I mean? We're do-it-yourselfers! Really, he is the do it yourselfer. I'm the that looks great honey gal or the do you need me to get the drill girl.

Anyway, as for the planning part, I can't think of any real man, and by "real", I mean, not fictitious; who wants to plan someone else's wedding. We'll help the couple where they need help, offer suggestions and ideas when appropriate, and hand over the wallet, but the majority of the planning will come from the happy couple!
Love you Hun!
Songs: for no reason other than it feels like a Shins kind of day, I present, Sleeping Lessons and Red Rabbits. Two of my favorites from them.

So This Is Love

Well, it's finally official! Trent and Sue are engaged! He asked her Wednesday morning while on their St. George trip. She's NOT a morning person. But, he woke her up at 6:30 this morning and told her that they should go outside and watch the sun rise. She was extremely grumpy about it, and at one point, even told him "This had better be good!" Anyway, she accepted, and now they've got a tentative date set for December.
How do I feel? Anxious, excited, nervous. Jason wants to do as many things as possible by ourselves, and that freaks me out too! I keep having these Father of the Bride flashback glimpses similar to this one...

In short, it's pretty surreal!

I should note that although Jason and I are somewhat freaked out, we feel very good about her choice in mates. Trent is mature, he's a planner and a saver, he's organized, and most importantly, I know he loves her and will take care of her.

Anyway, this is the stuff you guys want to see:
This is where he proposed:
Here's the ring:They plan to wed in the temple (not this one, necessarily)Happy couple!

We have to have songs right? "So This Is Love" from Cinderella and "True Love's Kiss" from Enchanted
That last picture was sort of a good measure picture. It's entitled... What else? True Love's Kiss!

No Business Like Show Business

ONE of the super-cool things about our school is the Discovery program. I think I my have mentioned it before on my blog. But, anyway, this past discovery, Super chose to do the "Show Time" class. For 6 weeks (I think it was) they met each Tuesday for a couple of hours and learned a bit about Broadway musicals. In addition, they learned to sing and perform a musical number (complete with kick line). It was so cute! Supe even got up the courage to try out for a solo and made it! It makes me so proud to see her coming out of her shell a little!

They sang No Business Like Show Business from Annie Get Your Gun, so I think that should be today's song. Don't you? Well, you'll have to click on it to listen. Playlist doesn't have it!
