So exciting news from Dublin! Richy asked me to be his wife Friday night! Friday was Richy's birthday and he kept telling me he didn't want anything for his birthday, except a nice dinner in the house and then a few drinks after in our favorite bar! Easy enough right?! Well after a steak dinner and birthday cake Richy was in the bedroom changing his shirt...or so I thought....he told me to come in here and see what he really wanted for his birthday...

I was watching a special on Princess Dianna so I took my happy time going in the room...but when I did there was Richy on one knee with a beautiful ring....telling me he wanted me to be his wife! :) We're both so over the moon! Richy has already been quoted saying..."this engagement business is great craic" as only an Irish man could say! I agree!

The ring is beautiful! It is an antique from 1910 in the Edwardian style..I kinda think it has an art deco feel to it! I can't take my eyes off it! The boy did great!

luck of the irish

Okay so my project is due tomorrow! good thing we've finished! A presentation is all that is standing in my way of a masters degree! Last week I had a computer disaster with dishwashing liquid..aka fairy liquid! Computer is being fixed and hard drive was retrieved...but for about 24 hours I was led to believe nothing could be fixed!

So get my computer back tomorrow as well! Have loads to blog about..since I haven't even really blogged about my parents trip!

Be back soon! :)
