Fun News!

So sorry I have been MIA, but I have a good reason.

I'M ENGAGED!!


The BF fiance hid the ring in my favorite dessert box.  

I opened the box to stuff my face with a cannoli but I found a better surprise instead. Of course I started to cry hysterically and when I looked up the BF fiance was on one knee popping the question I waited 7 years to hear.

Of course I said yes and we are completly over the moon!! 


I'll be back blogging tomorrow- till then I am going to stare at my beautiful ring and enjoy being engaged. Hope you don't mind.

FANT-ABULOUS! Congratulations my e-friend. I couldn't be more thrilled for you. He is a lucky man and I appreciate his realization that dessert was the true way to your heart.

Take your time to enjoy, savor the champagne...and then show us that ring kiddo. I fully expect this blog to turn wedding-centric. Can you also do a wedding webcast so all of us blogger-stalkers can follow what surely will be your sensational wedding decor?
