So... the bathroom project wasn't quite finished by Labor Day. I did a good bit of work on it, but I didn't get to the finish line...

You see, I was too busy getting engaged!

(a picture I took before it it all went down)


Mr. "Too Shy to Talk to a Hairstylist About a Bad Haircut" actually went to my parents that morning and asked for the permission to use a family ring to propose with. To make a sweet moment even sweeter, he made sure that we made it over to our favorite bench. Oh, and did I mention that he timed it all so that his mom would be in town for it? Yep, I found myself a winner!

(before- about one minute before!)

I was SO SURPRISED! I never thought he would do it in public or that he would do it any time soon- my guess was that it would happen in December.


Don't worry, I did get back to work on the bathroom this morning so you can expect updates on that soon!

Just enjoy being engaged for a while... but when it does come time for wedding plans, I can't wait to hear them! I can't do much else in a thrifty way, but thrifty weddings - I can do!!

Yeah for you!! What a fun Labor Day!!

Congrats Kasey! Oooh yeah, and I can't wait to see how you do an awesome thrifty wedding! (Assuming you didn't just get $40k from a distant relative to blow on it!) Yay for you guys!

Congratulations! I assure you, a thrifty wedding is not only possible, but wonderful, in my opinion. Spending consciously forced to make a lot of decisions very carefully and ask for help from those around us. We ended up with a day that reflected our personalities and included a lot of our loved ones.
