Getting Hitched!

Well, I knew this weekend was going to be awesome, but I did not know the surprise that was in store:
These two crazy kids are going to tie the knot!
After we picked my mom and Cliff up from the airport on Friday night, we walked to a restaurant right around the corner from our house to wait for my sister and Brandon to arrive.  As soon as they got to the restaurant, Cliff said, "Ok, let me take a picture of you guys."  While we posed for the picture, my mom slipped on her rock and put her hand right next to the camera.  Here is the picture:

I know that this picture looks posed, but it's not.  Doug and I immediately noticed the giant rock on her finger, and we were stunned.  It took Mimi and Brandon a few more seconds before they realized what was going on, so they were still smiling for the camera at this point.  I just think this picture is hilarious.

I am so happy for my mom and Cliff.  She is such a wonderful mother, and I am so glad that she had found someone so sweet to take care of her and be her partner.  I am excited for all of the festivities to come (hello, bachelorette party!) and to welcome the new additions to our family.

I was going to apologize for the terrible picture quality, but you know what?  This is my blog.  You get to read about my life.  Take what you get, ok?


  1. Oh my gosh! How exciting - and that picture is the greatest! (Nice meeting you two tonight, by the way!)

  2. Tell your mom congratulations! Priceless picture, too.
