there’s a ring!

It has been almost a month since my last post, and for this I apologize! Our world has been chirping with the talk of …. duh duh duh dah! wedding details!

Dan proposed two weeks ago today, and our life has been aflutter with congratulations and planning details. We viewed a venue Tuesday and hope to book it on Monday. We have talked to most of our groomsmen and half of our bridesmaids, so the ball is rolling!

Check out the ring he designed:

The ring!

The ring!

Now for the engagement details:

the nest is all aflutter with the sound of church bells

Yesterday Dan told me to plan a wedding. I complained of being bored at work and not wanting to do anything I needed to (much like now, which is why I’m blogging) and he told me to plan a wedding. Well, I’m not sure he knew what he was in for.

I researched venues. We have one in mind, so I looked up the cost and rental agreement. I even printed it out (which later made Dan laugh a little). I also came up with a tentative timeline, if we are to use that venue.

Dan started it. He told an event planner – who has been dreaming about her wedding day since she was 5 and knew what a wedding was – to plan a wedding. We aren’t yet engaged, so I’m trying not to get too into it, but man! This isn’t fair.

So today at work I discovered StumbleUpon. I didn’t want to put weddings as an interest, but then I did. And crafts. And writing. And gardening. But weddings. Dan has no idea what he’s in for….

catching up and missing pieces

It’s been two weeks since I have written, but that’s because we have had quite a few weeks!

First of all, Dan and his father built our deck! We have patio furniture, solar lighting and newly transplanted lillies. Check back for further details and pictures soon (they’re in the editing phase right now).

Now for the big news: Dan had an emergency appendectomy last Saturday! He experienced pain for about a week, but we didn’t know what it was. At first we thought he was having severe muscle pains (due to the recent deck raising), then we thought it was the flu. Turns out, he had an angry appendix.

customizing our nest

Dan and I have kicked it into high gear and are building our nest. Saturday we (Dan) got motivated and (Dan) painted the accent wall in our living room and kitchen. It turned out a nice, rich brown (after a scuffle about the shade).

wedding fever? not what you think

Lately I’ve been thinking I really enjoy the wedding industry. I’ve spent some time (usually while bored at work) surfing through various wedding inspiration sites. At first it was because I was day dreaming about my own wedding and what I would eventually like to do (and I have sent myself a few links to return to when the time is right), but I’m realizing more and more that I just enjoy seeing what others come up with for their special day.

finding room in the budget for each other

Yesterday Dan and I sat down and really examined our finances. Combining resources, bills and expenses is difficult, but a big step in our relationship. For months we’d been talking about really itemizing all of our bills – separate and joint – to see where we stand. Last night we finally followed through, and it was a little bit of a shock.
