Boom!

So this just happened:

We just got back from a week at a cottage we'd rented with my parents and brother's and sister's families.  And I had this diamond ring lying around.  And there was nothing on TV.  So, I proposed.  And I proposed Pinterest style!


There was great relief when Jen selected the box beside "YES".  Could be because the "NO" box was so small.  But oh well, she's stuck with me now!  

Further details to follow but there won't be a big ceremony.  There WILL be a big party at some point though.

The down side to my little plan was to do this at the END of a week of cottaging.  We're both a little too pooped to go celebrating.  For now we're happy to be home, together, looking forward to the next steps in our lives.

  5. OK - so I'm here. Reading your blog. I now see the reason why you're not buying a house. NICE ring! Congratulations Tyson and to Jennifer as well. I am so happy for you both.

    Since you're looking forward to the next step, why don't you come over some time soon and babysit the 2 boys to get a taste of what you're in for. If you want the "real" experience, come over around 4:30 pm. I'll leave you to get dinner ready and put them to bed. You'll love it. Promise.

    Congratulations! Is there any techy video coverage of the reaction to the board?
