It's official- I now have a fiance. I knew he wouldn't be able to keep the ring to himself for too long and sure enough, he proposed last night! We then went to a great restaurant with my brother and some of his friends (they were in town for work) and he bought champagne for everyone to toast us. It was wonderful. Yesterday was truly amazing.

new laptop

I got a new laptop today. My old one still works, but the battery is totally dead and the I am having to borrow a power cord from my work laptop because the one for my personal one (the second one by the way) broke. My laptop is a Toshiba and to replace those 2 things will cost close to $200. We may sell this one as is or keep it as a spare- not sure yet.

So, I bought a new gateway that is much faster with more memory and a better screen for $599. Now bf and I are going through the painful process of getting rid of Vista and putting XP back on it. Thank goodness he is an IT consultant.

It is getting closer to when we will be getting engaged. I don't know exactly when, and the ring is not ready yet, but bf has said he can't wait until I have a sparkler on my hand. I think he is very proud of the design he chose and he knows I will love it. I can't wait!

Fall as we know it here on the Texas gulf coast has finally arrived. It will get into the high 30's tonight but the days will be gorgeous low 70's all week. I love this time of year.

Hope everyone has a great week- it will be a busy one for me, but if anything exciting happens I will be sure to post.

So excited!

So today was a very big day. Bf and I went to the jeweler where he is getting my engagement ring made to look at the wax version. It is going to be the most gorgeous ring. We also are having a simple band made for the Jewish ceremony and a small band of diamonds made as well. This way they will all match and look perfect together. And while I was not planning on the diamond band we decided to do it since we are using 18k white gold instead of platinum.

It will be ready in 7-10 days and then of course he will hide it from me and I will just have to wait until he is ready to ask me. I know it will be before the end of the year. I am just so excited. Things are great and I am such a lucky girl!

Happy Monday. Is it just me or is everyone having a hard time adjusting to the time change? I am just very tired today, but that could also be because we have a new cat that tends to want to play when I have just reached a deep sleep.

I went and visited my family for Halloween and had a lot of fun. I left bf here to catch up on work and I think he got a lot accomplished but still has a lot more to do. One of these days he will get back to where he was before the hurricane hit and his computer crashed.

I sat next to a girl on the plane that had just gotten engaged. It was very exciting to hear her talk about it and made me excited for the day when I too get proposed to. I know it won't be far off, but it is still a waiting game.

And now I am off to watch Gossip Girl- one of my many guilty pleasures.
