Yesterday my parents hosted our engagement party. We had 26 people all said and done. Doug and Linda even flew down from Boston to attend. I think it was the first time since my parents' wedding that all my uncles were in the same place.
My mom gave a little speech - essentially Cheryl and Ross, birth to dating and Melissa ended it with the proposal story. Complete with props. Ross was given a rubber ducky necklace to symbolize his outfit at proposal and I was given full princess garb to represent how I felt with that brand new diamond ring on my finger.
We had a blast! And now we're resting up and getting ready for the real world to kick back in tomorrow.
