I can't wipe this cheesy grin off my face!

It's been such a great weekend. I keep staring at Mike and THE ring and I just can't stop smiling! Mike and I have been together 4 years, and I couldn't have asked for a better man to marry. Yes, we have had our problems (big problems) but those are the things that make us SO strong. I know we can conquer anything! We are truly in love and can't wait to start planning our wedding!

It was so cute on Saturday...we decided to tell my Grandparents in person (that we're engaged!) and honestly I didn't know how they would react....But my Gramp's said "How bout that!" (his oh so famous saying..) and my Grandma smiled and said "OH thats what you wanted to tell me!". It was so Dad wanted to know where he was on the "food chain" and of course he was #1! He has been bragging bout that! I was also really nervous to tell my Dad, him and I have never really talked about marriage or even remotely near it. But to my surprise he was SO happy!

I brought over the Country Squire pamphlet...that ever so conveniently was sent to us Saturday....and showed it to my Dad. (I've kinda known that this day would be coming kinda I've been looking around for reception venues) My Dad started looking over the menu and its amenities...and he started asking how many people I will invite, etc. We estimated maybe 300 people. He is such a GREAT Dad...he said not to worry about how many people..and to invite WHOEVER I want to MY wedding! He started asking me about photographers, which church and the transportation! He is so cute! I think he is just as excited as I am! Ever since Saturday he has been bugging me about my lists!!!

I am so lucky to have such a great Dad. I'm totally Daddy's little girl and always will be. He has done so much for me...and now he is helping me with this wedding. There is nothing I could ever do to repay him. I truly feel blessed.
