Exciting News!

So... the posting has been non-existent for the last couple of weeks. I have a really good and exciting reason why though. Other than it being busy at work, my birthday, and Thanksgiving.... I got engaged!! :) Yay!
My amazing fiance', Lu, put A LOT of work into my proposal to make sure that I was surprised, and boy was I! I woke up thinking that it was going to be a normal day of work, but Lu surprised me with a card saying that he had taken the day off for me. He told me that we were going to Austin for the day to have a relaxing day together. After lunch he gave me another card while we were in the car that said lunch wasn't enough and that he wanted to spend the day floating in the clouds with me. What does that mean? As I looked up we were pulling into the Austin Airport. Whaaaat?!? We checked our bags (that he had my friend pack for me without me knowing the day before), and were told we had a flight to VEGAS! Woohoo! I have always wanted to go there! When we got to Vegas we cheked into our room and I got all dressed up for our dinner. When I came out of the bathroom, he was dressed super nice and he said he had another card for me. Wellllll..... the card was adorable and after I read it he was on one knee asking me to marry him!! I was in shock! Of course I said yes, but little did I know the surprises weren't over. We went downstairs to go to our dinner reservation, turned the corner, and there were my two best friends and their husband/fiance'! Oh my goodness gracious! We had a fabulous dinner and I was so excited that they were there. After dinner we walked around the hotel. When I turned a corner, there was my Mom, and both of my sisters! I could not believe that they were all there! What a FABULOUS day that I had. I was completely overwhelmed and couldn't be happier. Here are some photos from our trip.

We were very happy!
Our amazing friends when they surprised us!
Right after seeing my Mom and two sisters.

 All of our fabulous friends on Freemont Street!
 Such a great trip!
 One last stop before our flight at the Hoover Dam.

 So, the moral of the story for you guys is.... no new crafts! But, never fear! Christmas is coming up and I plan to make most, if not all, of my Christmas presents. So, there will be new ones soon! AND I plan to make most of the things for our wedding. I haven't deided if I'm going to post those before the wedding, or after, but I definitely will be looking for good ideas! We're going for an outdoor rustic wedding. If you know of any good posts or blogs, I'd love it if you would share!

Crafting soon, I promise!
