Big News!!

Saturday for New Years Eve we went to our friends Nancy & Mike's wedding.  She was gorgeous and the wedding was super fun! The band was amazing and they even had the popular late night pizza spot deliver pizza before the wedding was over! 

Blurry, but her dress was just perfect! She was such a beautiful bride!

Evidence of the good time had by all!

She put on this fab one shoulder dress for their exit! 


And then Sunday Ben asked me to marry him!! We're engaged! Lol I know ya'll have been waiting on this for a while (me too!!) I'm so excited! I was totally not expecting it, at all! We were home taking down Christmas decorations and before I knew it he was on one knee! We then got ready and went to my cousins' to celebrate with my family. I've had more champagne this weekend than any one person should consume! 

Then yesterday our good friends Brittany and Pat hosted an engagement brunch for us! I had known we were going over there for brunch but the fact that it was for my engagement was a surprise! haha, Ben and Britt had planned it all out! We ended up staying over there all day just hanging out and celebrating with great friends! I'm a lucky girl :)




I don't know what the plans for the wedding will be yet. We have kicked around having it in Charleston for a while. It's both of our favorite city and well, just beautiful...so that may be what we end up doing. Not on the beach, but downtown. I expect it will be 2013 though...so don't expect any hard core wedding planning posts right away!
