Happy Day

I am getting married to the most wonderful man in the world. Seriously. I am not lying. I know I'm biased, but it's true! Michael proposed last Sunday at sunrise, and I said oui, si, of course, yes, hands down, no doubt, YES! Actually, I just said yes, but inside it was all of those things.

Here I am smirking at the camera. Not sure why. But this was at Michael's ring ceremony for his team winning the 2010 lacrosse national championship. Two words: Stud muffin. Michael received that blingin ring that you can see on his finger -- little did I know that I'd be getting a beautiful ring myself a few months later.

Mmmm I reread what I just wrote. Sounds like total CHEESE. Oh well.

I am so happy.

Let me tell you what -- Sarah and Steve Schoeffel did an amazing job helping Michael plan and set up the proposal. They are true and faithful friends, and I am so grateful for them for so many reasons! Abigail also gets big props because she did a fantastic job making me beleive that Michael wasn't going to propose for at least another week or two. And this was Abs! My sweet friend who flips out about love. Both Michael's and my parents came in for the proposal -- another sweet treat of the day.

I am so happy. Slash. I have no idea what the heck I am doing planning a wedding. This just is not my cup of tea! But carpe diem! I have less than 5 months to get ready to wed. My logical/rational/practical self really would love to just skip to the honeymoon (yes, I just said that) and to life in DC as we settle down, but alas, there is much to be done! I think the wedding is going to be "Pride and Prejudice" meets "Town&Country" themed -- meaning an elegant venue, but I'm not exactly elegant, so I'm thinking sunflowers and mason jars, not roses and lace. That sort of thing. baaa ahh haha I again don't know what I just said. This is going to be fun(ny.)


  1. I feel like it is my duty to comment on your post to remind you that people "stalk" it. YEEHHAWWWW!!!! I just love dreaming of you as Keira Knightly in Pride and Prejudice mixed with Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama"

  5. Hi Carey Beth! I just wanted to say congrats on your blog (I linked to it from Molly's blog from last year...I think you and I are the only ones who read it :) ). I am so happy for you! I'd love to see you when you're wedding planning in Cville. Also - I just read through your recent blog posts and laughed when reading the one about the Harry and David grapefruit -we totally got those at my house at Christmas! I love the pears wrapped in golden foil... :)
