Congratulations Amanda!!

Yesterday was a huge day around here. My oldest friend in the world and the person I consider to be the sister I never had, Amanda, got engaged. Thank God!!

She's been with her guy for about four years now and despite his claims to the contrary, I think we were all beginning to give up hope. He wasn't dragging his feet out of reluctance or anything, he lives with and cares for an elderly maiden aunt and wanted to wait until she'd be alright with it. Who can blame a guy for that?

I couldn't be happier for her, it was really nice getting good news for a change. We went for a drive and giggled and talked and hashed and re-hashed the big moment over and over and over again. What he said, how he said it, how he looked when he said it, where he was standing, what he was wearing, what she was thinking, what she said, what she thought, how she feels, and everything in between. Twice!

It seems like for the last couple of years there have been an inordinate amount of funerals and wakes around here. As a matter of fact, the last three times I have seen her fiance' has been at funerals or visitations. Her engagement is really good news, and I for one am really looking forward to having the whole next year filled with happy, fun, and yes, frustrating moments.

We plan on starting the whole thing off right on Monday with coffee and dress shopping. I can hardly wait! She's going to be a beautiful bride.
