Saturday afternoon I wanted to swing by my new apartment that I am moving into in May and take the measurements of the living room. Reagan hadn’t seen it yet either, so he wanted to come too. We got to the apartment complex and I am in total apartment mode, already messing with the doors and thinking spatially about where to put things, etc. I’m in the zone.
Reagan – Oh hey look, you have your own refrigerator!”
Me – “Yeah, oh yeah, my own fridge!”
So I peak in the fridge and see something in there.
First thought: Someone left stuff in the fridge! Weird!
Second thought: Oh, is that a bottle of champagne? Does the apt complex give you a bottle of champagne when you move in? Wow.
Third thought: Wait that is a picture of me and Reagan on that card….
I turn around and Reagan is on one knee!!
(Insert mushy proposal speech here)
I had NO idea, obviously. He got me good! I opened the fridge again and saw that there is a cake shaped like a jewelry box and a ring, a handmade (witty) card by one Reagan Lewis, and a bottle of champagne. So we enjoyed a glass of champagne in my new apartment and called the family. Then at some point I said – Hey can we still take measurements? Ha! So we took measurements and then headed over to Reagan’s house to celebrate with family! It was such a perfect surprise, I was so impressed!
The cake and card!
Happy couple. Yay!
Taking measurements, ha!

After running a half marathon in February, I have a new respect for distance runners. While driving to work today, I heard about Don Armstrong on the radio…
“In a year of thanks and celebration, one man – Don Armstrong, a courageous leukemia survivor – celebrates his fifth year in remission by running 10 marathons and raising $500,000 to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with a mission to help find a cure for blood cancers. Armstrong is running not only to celebrate his survival and raise money for the cause, but also runs for those who cannot finish their race.”
Talk about setting some serious goals! How awesome!
It is people like this that inspire me and make me realize I need to get my butt into gear and set higher goals for myself. If you would like to help Don meet his goal of raising $500,000, you can donate here.
Whew! This was a busy one! I am 3 months into 2010 and am still keeping up fairly well with my monthly calendar…only 9 months to go, ha. Here is March!
I took more photos of Liesl today! Surprise, surprise, I know, but she is so darn cute and such an easy subject to photograph! Here is a little sneak peek…
