Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

I am getting very excited - this weekend, I finally get to use my Christmas present from C - a weekend in a château!

We will be staying in the "chambre du chevalier":Does that not look like the perfect place to celebrate our upcoming nuptials?

Yep, you read that right.

C proposed last night and for once, I decided to just throw caution to the wind and go for it. Enough with all the thinking and the analyzing. The timing is perfect too because we just bought tickets to the US for June, and I figure we might as well just do it then so my family can attend. I've never seen myself spending as the kind of girl who spends a whole year planning a wedding, so it couldn't be more perfect actually. Just give me a fancy dress and I'll be happy!

WOW! Best wishes!

Sometimes, when it's right, it's right and that's all you need to know.

I was wondering if we might hear an announcement like this ... warmest best wishes for a happy, long life together.

I hope it's not an April Fools joke as I've already been caught off guard once today by my husband.

Congrats! I did a sort of 'quickie' wedding as well, way back when, planning the whole thing in 5 weeks. The biggest hurdle for us was getting the priest to squeeze our wedding in- since most people plan their weddings years ahead of time we ended up doing it friday evening. Otherwise I was just worried about finding a dress. My mom picked me up at the airport and we went straight to the Bridal Boutique at Marshall Fields (RIP) in downtown MSP. I told them to bring me anything that I could buy and take home with me that day. Everything else just fell into place. As my sister says, an engagement is supposed to be a short-term thing, not a stage of life.

Haha! Nice one! In any case, maybe the non-April Fool's version is just around the corner...? ;)

I call your bluff. Why would C propose last night, instead of during your romantic vacation in Egypt? Guys aren't THAT hollow-minded. :)

First thought: Congrats!
Reading comments: Oh drat, maybe it is an April Fool's joke.

First thought - wow congratulations, I'm so happy for you!

Second thought - damit I've been fooled again (friend implied she was pregnant on Facebook).

Third thought - won't we all feel mean and horrible if indeed it is true.

Either way, have a great break away!

Not falling for the proposal bit. But the castle looks fabulous! Wow! I've always wanted a canopy bed. Uber romantic getaway! How nice that C likes to travel.
