He Proposed


Saturday morning, on Alki Beach, in 30 degree weather, with waves splashing up over the wall. Then we ran inside Alki Cafe and got breakfast.

Funny thing that I couldn't mention earlier. I told you we called mom and dad on Thanksgiving. What I didn't tell you was that Todd asked for their blessing during that call. And he got a pretty good idea of just what he was getting himself into.

Todd: I intend to ask your daughter to marry me sometime in the near future, and I would love to have your blessing.

[chirp, chirp]

[uh oh....]

Mom: FINALLY!
Dad: Take her! Please!

I just looked at him and said, "Are you sure? Really?"
Apparently, he is sure.

Your mama is very happy for you and even more so since the kids approve (per TD's blog).

I love you,
Mom

Awww - congrats!! I saw it on fb and came here to get the details. I'm so happy for you, Rae (and you too Todd).

Now, if you could hurry up and make babies that would make me very happy. :D

I can't even begin to tell you both how happy I am about this! There was something special about TD from Bink's (sorry! old habits die hard) first post about him. And it just got better. The ring is beautiful, and it befits a beautiful girl. I just hope he is ready to take on the Marshes/Crawfords/Belks! He'll fit right in. I love y'all!! Congrats!

Congrats! said...

Wow... congratulations!! I've been reading both of your blogs and am so happy for both of you!

OKay this is a waaaaayyyyyy late comment. Finally catching up on my blogroll now that I have time in the airport (been hellah busy- sorry). I knew he was gonna propose (told me in a fb chat) and I knew (again thanks to fb) that you'd said yes. However, here I sit in a sports bar in Phoenix reading your joint blogs and I'm wiping away the tears. So, you are gonna see me tonight at your house with great big raccoon eyes from my mascara. What a way to finally meet your fiance! I'll try to clean myself up.

I'm sooooooooooooooooo happy for you both!!!! :-)
