The Best News Ever

As you all have probably already figured out, my HUGE NEWS is that my wonderful little sister is now officially engaged!!!

Things didn't exactly go the way I planned though... I've been trying for nearly an hour now to upload even one picture with absolutely no success whatsoever. Oh, and I didn't even think about telling my Aunt that I was going to post about the 'surprise' last night, so I jokingly told her that she "stole my thunder!" Just kidding!!!

I'm just so incredibly happy for my sister right now, and everything went SO perfect when Michael asked her to marry him. I'll tell that story another night... Actually, I'm hoping Laura Belle will actually write about it, so I can just copy it - tee hee! It's not so much out of laziness that I want to do so. It's just that she tells the story SO much better than I would (I'd butcher it for sure!)

I did write Laura a letter and gave her just a little something of a 'congratulations' for her engagement, since I was nearly speechless when she called me Saturday night with the big news! I hoped that she didn't think I wasn't excited - my typical reaction would be to scream, jump up and down, and maybe even cry... But Laura said that my reaction was just fine. And little did she know that ever since I've been getting tears in my eyes, and just grinning from ear to ear every time I think about her finally getting that ring that she so deserves!

I'll write more about Laura's wonderful engagement soon, and til then much love to you all and God Bless!


**Oh yeah! And Dani did guess right on the 'huge news!' Granted, it was after my Aunt Tanya left a comment basically saying what it was... All the same, Dani - you get a cute little beaded necklace if you would like it! **

I used to make them all the time, and just recently found a stash of about a dozen that were completely done, just waiting to be given away! I would have posted a pic of them up, but again... the Internet's just not going to cooperate! And if anyone else would like one, I'll be more than glad to oblige :o) Just let me know! Thanks for playing along with my teaser yesterday! All my love...

That is so great!! I am so happy for her. :)

On the uploading photos, have you thought about trying windows live writer? I have started using it to publish my blog post onto blogspot. It is so much easier and the pictures upload so much faster. You might want to try it. :)
