Two posts in one month! Can you believe it? I have not accomplished this in such a long time. I am so proud of myself. Such discipline, I tell you. Who would believe I used to post every single day?

It seems this blog is going to become two things. It will contain photography and family. How can leave my family out of this blog? They are so bizarre. There is ALWAYS something happening.

Which brings me to today's topic. Today we shall focus on family. Surprisingly it is not Drama Queen! We shall save her for a later update. Today it is all about Blondie.

To recap: December, 2007 Blondie graduated from the University of Kansas and abandoned her loving mother for the Windy City and her boyfriend whom she loves very much. She found a good job with a national company within short order. After over a year, she continues to work and live in downtown Chicago with 'the boyfriend' and LOVES it! (too bad for me)

Today: We must find a new name for 'the boyfriend'. He became empowered on February 12th. After they had dinner and quietly in their apartment (Blondie hates a fuss), he got down on one knee and asked "the question". He's always pulling pranks so she thought he was joking until... the box came out of his pocket and he opened it up. He tells us she her mouthed dropped and the first words out of her mouth were "SHUT UP". Yeah, that's my little girl. Always knows what to say at the right time. Of course, she said yes, cried, and gave us a call.

We are all very excited for them. Blondie is so happy. But now 'the boyfriend' is being renamed 'the fiancee' for the next year. The wedding is going to be in Chicago and not in Kansas City, so this is going to be very interesting planning. My connections are all in Kansas City. The next year could bring some very interesting stories as this progresses and we attempt to put on a Chicago wedding on a Kansas City budget.

Pictures posted are of Blondie, 'the fiancee', and a new member of my blog 'maid of honor'. It just grows and grows. This could get out of control people. Be prepared for the roller coaster ride.

One added note: Happy 3rd Birthday to Baby Reece, our little angel in heaven. Many of you remember.

Congrats to Blondie! This will be such an exciting time for you all, enjoy it!!

That's such great news. I love when people are happy and in love.

Small Town Girl said...

Well, congrats, Blondie! They're so cute!! Have fun with all the planning. :)

I remember...I'll be thinking of you. Seems like the birthdays are always hard.

Miranda: Ah yes. Happy in love. Could be a musical. I get the distinct feeling I'll be grandma again within two years. We'll see.

Small Town Girl: They are cute pair! Same personality (both crazy).

The bdays are difficult. Hard to believe it's been 3 years already. Thanks for the thoughts : )

"My connections are all in Kansas City." I bet you can find pot in Chicago. :)

So is Dweeb going to play at the reception?

Mominator said...

Turf Dad: Chicago is a big city. It shouldn't be difficult, eh?

As much as it would help if Dweeb would convince the band to drive to Chicago as a wedding gift, I think he's wanting to be 'dad' that day. I don't know what the big deal is all about. Sheesh!

Turf Dad said...

Yeah but once you get the bride and groom on the road the real party can begin. They could have a big jam session.

Congrats to you and Blondie! It was so nice of you to stop by my blog a it's been quite a while. I look forward to keeping up with you and your family.

Love to live;live to love!

Holy Cow the music on your blog takes me back to some drunk card nights in Lawrence! Not that I ever did that sort of thing. ; )

Congrats for Blondie and "The Fiancee" how funny that he got promoted in title.

Glad to see you back and sorry for your angel. It is a sad day to remember anyone but especially the little ones.

Mominator said...

White Hot Magik: Oh yeah, hanging out in all the bars between Mass, campus and 6th. Not to mention the farm houses rented by fellow students! Good times! haha.

Any bets on the UD/Kansas game? Flyer Fever is pretty hot and heavy here in my part of Ohio.
