Finally after a dreadful, nasty winter.
But we have a more important reason to celebrate March 20th.
It is our dear Abby's birthday.
Happy birthday Abby. (28 already!)
We all gathered in Des Moines for a birthday celebration.
Zach (Abby's boyfriend), Abby, Anthony and Deb
We dined at Johnny's Steakhouse in West Glen.
(I highly recommend the skillet potatoes.)
Next event to celebrate: Anthony and Deb's engagement!
He proposed to her in the ice fishing shack. I tried to talk him out of it - not proposing - but doing it in an ice fishing shack. But he and his ice fishing buddy thought proposing in an ice fishing shack was a great idea. When I think of romantic places - an ice fishing shack never comes to mind.
His question was "Deb will you marry me?."
You would think that her reply would be - "Yes I will marry you."
But instead she said "You're doing this now? I'm in snow pants."
- followed by a YES!
(Apparently ice fishing shacks aren't
at the top of Deb's romantic places either.)
Walking back to the cabin - in snow pants - after the proposal.
I am not a big sports fan but was told this is a REALLY BIG deal.
I hope all of you have much to celebrate.
From my heart,
