I couldn't be all forthcoming and stuff with the last blog. Because if certain friends and family read the news via travel blog, we would be made into mince. Which, again, looks like meat jam, and is not something I would like to resemble. So yes. Now that the IMPORTANT people have been let know finally.....
YESTERDAY. Remember in last Blog, I talked about Dawson Falls being all nice and magical and sentimental and junk?? Yeah. That's because I got engaged there. YAAAAAYYYY!!! Okay. So here's the story because I know every fairy tale freak is dying to hear it. And I gotta admit. It's pretty damned precious and cute.
So heading down Mt
So we kept it underwraps until we could talk to the rents, and the sisters and brother, and the Hoose and Herlihy.... LMAO!! Exciting! We spent this morning on the phone of course, and then spent the afternoon looking for a ring. Ring shopping is quite interesting. Salespeople are funny when you tell them what you're looking for, and they show you the exact opposite and tell you how much better it is than what you actually wanted. Mostly because it's $3000 more than what you actually wanted. "No, madam salesperson. I am not interested in a ring with 18 bazillion diamonds that looks like something you can order out of the Avon catalogue. But thanks for the offer." But we found the most perfect ring I've ever seen in my life, and as it turns out, was one of the first rings we looked at, at the first place we looked. No frills, small, simple suspended solitaire on white gold, can see the whole diamond from the side.... <3 LOVE IT. Had to send it away to be resized, so hopefully it'll be back by the time I head back to the frozen barracks of Canada.... in 2020.... LMAO JK! OK since it's been the first question asked by MULTIPLE PEOPLE today.... YES I'm still coming back to Canada. And we'll suss out the details later. :-)
So I made my new fiance dinner tonight, which he loved.... at least he said he did like any good man who wants to keep his balls would...
So yeah. Big exciting couple of days!!! Thanks to everyone for the well wishes, and we love you all! Oh and Happy Mother's Day mommy, and Happy Birthday Dad!! I got you a new son-in-law! He's short, brown and funny as hell. SUPRISE! And no, he doesn't come with a return receipt. Two Kiwis in the Walchuk family. Whodathunk!?
