Only missing the swans:-)

Interesting night last night:-)

Twin Sister met Munchkin at school and they went shopping for her niece. I met them, and The Boy, for chicken fingers, which was as lovely as ever:-) Smoking Hot Roommate and The Rocket Scientist dropped by for a bit, too.

Munchkin went over to Twin Sister's place to hang out while The Boy and I went to a thing with people from his work. We were just gonna bring her home, and I am OK with her being home alone, but TS offered, I would rather Munchkin not be home alone, and she wanted to go hang out with the baby for a bit anyway, so it all worked out.

The work thing was fun...I like the people he works with, and I sort of tangentially know some of their clients through my own work, so it is nice to see them sort of differently. It is weird to see people that you only know through work in a more social setting...they have a totally different vibe. Also, one guy that we have done some work with was there with his daughter, who I recognized as the Mother of a boy at Munchkin's school...more small world stories.

Anyway, we stayed until about 10:00 and then left to get Munchkin. It was pretty cold, but it was a really nice night. And then, while we were walking over the bridge in the Public Garden, he stopped and asked me if I would marry him.

I said yes, and I am very, very happy about it:-)

I am so excited about this I can barely contain myself!

You are happier these days than I have ever seen you before, and The Boy deserves much of the credit for that. Anything that makes you happy is unquestionably good.

And I am ecstatic for The Boy, too. A truly wonderful, fabulous man, and someone who deserves all of the happiness that you bring him!

Congrats! I almost missed out on the post because I've been so busy at work. I'm glad I stopped to read it! So happy for you!

Aw. I don't think I've ever commented, but I'm breaking my silence to say congratulations! I was recently engaged on a Thursday night on a bridge, and now I'm a mere 2 weeks away from my wedding. I love your writing style and it's going to be fun reading about your wedding planning (we're going very small and casual and even that makes for plenty of riotous stories.)

I will echo what my little sister said above. I could not be happier about this! I love you both dearly, and I am very happy to be expanding the "family".

However, history will show that it was I that introduced the two of you, with the promise that you would get along great. Does anybody else thing that maybe I am due some sort of commission for this?
