I must warn you that this post is filled with a ton of LOVE and HAPPINESS so please read on and share the joy of the new year with me! Let's start with my January Currently (graciously hosted by Farley at

For those of you happy hearts (like me) who want to hear the Engagement details....read on! I do better with pictures AND words so here we go! On Christmas morning, under the Christmas tree, was a beautiful Gold envelope with this card inside-
|Out fell an envelope and inside was this gift certificate good for one ENGAGEMENT session at a local photo studio!|
In the midst of my teary eyes and udder SHOCK,
I look up and this guy-
was holding this ring-
asking me to marry him!
I'm ENGAGED! YAY!!!! Now the story keeps getting better...
He tells me that the band was not his first pick. There is another band, and if I should agree, is waiting to be custom-designed to my choosing! So of course I ask to take a look at what the designer is thinking and he shows me this:
Can I get an OH YEAH!!! The beautiful ending to this fabulous engagement story is that the engagement stone is his Mother's from almost 50 years ago.... (How thoughtful is my new mother-in-law-to-be?!) We are going to have that centered in the band. Then, my amazing Mother graciously gave me my Grandmother's cocktail ring with many little stones in it. We are having those stones added to the band so both families will be together as ONE. My DREAM Ring from my DREAM guy!
Oh, did I mention I celebrated my birthday this week and the Dream Guy surprised me with NAGOYA and some hibachi grill goodness! This cook was awesome!
My sweet cousin Ashley flew all the way from Houston
to celebrate with us!
And for dessert: Chocolate Chip cookie cake that ends with
"Mrs. DiBenedetto" (I really like the sound of that!)
Thank you so much for reading and celebrating with me! Happy New Year my friends!!!
