Memorial Day Fun


I used the day off work today to get the dining room closer to completion, and even managed to enlist the help of Andrea for some sanding. Once we get the dining room finished, we should be past the worst of the dusty days in the house, and can move our new dining table to its final location.
Now that the walls are smooth and the windows are finished, we just need to pick out paint colors and a new chandelier. Home Depot run!

BIG News

Well, it's been a long time since I've blogged, but this is big enough to shake me back into the habit:

On April 23, I asked Andrea to marry me and she said YES! The proposal day (my happiest day so far) couldn't have turned out better, if I do say so myself. I suprised Andrea with a trip to Brugge, Belgium (a quaint late-medieval city) ahead of a work trip. At the stroke of noon in Minnewaterpark, I got down on one knee and gave her a ring. Here's a picture of Andrea sporting the smile she gave me after I asked if she wanted to marry me!

Over the next few weeks, I am going to use this blog to tell the story of the ring purchase, the proposal plan, and the proposal day. If you want Andrea's side of the story, you'll have to ask her!
