New Beginnings

Our middle son has become engaged! Yee haw! He took his father with him to pick out a ring and to lend moral support...dad has pretty amazing taste in rings, as anyone who has seen my wedding band knows, but I digress.

Middle son was planning to wait until next month's hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque to pop the question while soaring up in the air in a balloon, but I think the ring was burning a hole in his pocket, so he talked to her father last week and asked her last Thursday. Then he didn't even call to let us know what she said, I had to call him Friday to see how it went.

I tell you, sometimes my boys do not get how important these things are to their momma! His reply to my question was, I wouldn't have asked her if I didn't think she was going to say yes...I didn't know that did I? Huh? Oh well.

Anyway, now the diet begins in earnest. I wonder if I can lose 90 pounds before the big day? Do you think there are enough Spanx products to hold all my parts in place? I'm not entirely sure! We've been told that it will be at least a year, but I have doubts about that...we shall see. The saga begins.

You'll be beautiful no matter what you wear. Promise! You're the mother of the groom and that's all that matters. :)

Congratulations! Looks as if you're going to have one busy year ahead of you.

Buy the way, don't buy any Spanx. I'll send you a package that I bought one late night on TV and have never even opened them, lol. I have nude and black.... several of each actually. They were running a special and I fell for it. Let me know if I can send them to you. Believe me, I'd be more than happy to do so. Clear out another corner of this mess I call home. By the way, they are all size Large. Just let me know when you return from your trip.
