Dang slow dial up, but it bears repeating..... since he repeated the question a time or two.

Well, you know what they say -- "the sixth time's the charm." Oh? Well, anyway, there is some contention in certain circles about just how much repetition there really was. And besides, he still wasn't 'prepared', but I said yes anyway. So there. Looks like we have until possibly April 21st to become prepared.

And some girly details - we went to dinner at Hiroshi's, the sushi place we had our first day 21 months and 21 days ago. They brought out our sushi on a plate with roses and 'say yes' written in ketchup and mayonnaise. I told Mike, "Good thing you already asked!" But of course he'd been keeping an eye out.

Note to guys who don't read between the lines well: "Prepared" means diamond engagement ring suitible for a true Princess of her realm. Although I'd been doing some shopping, I did not find anything suitible for my Princess, who is also some kind of certified diamondoligist kinda person. Luckily, karmic convergence happens in my life, and that very day Nancy had been to her jeweler, and picked out what she liked.. wrote it down on his card and presented it to me. I had to laugh, as in many ways it made the whole thing easier and funnier. It'd be like her buying me computer gear.. This way I know what I am getting her.

As for the '6th' - well it makes a good story, and although we'd discussed it many times semi-seriously, I think this was really the first serious: "Will You?"

She's talking about April 21st 2006... Should be a good party :)

Nancy's a gem, Mike. Glad you get to keep her! ;)

Asha gave me a card with her ring as well - but it was months before I asked. I tried to make getting her the ring a surprise by saying I couldn't afford it. That was a mistake...

That's probably enough to finally drag me back to 'nooga!

Dang.. Really Dan?

#Comment Re: made: 2005-11-15 15:46:01.671461+00 by: ebradway

Dan: You're welcome to stay with us when you come!

meuon & nancy: some hints Asha and I learned from our wedding... Reflection Riding is nice but Crabtree Farms has an equally nice garden area and nearby parking and bathrooms. All of the help we got from friends far exceeded our expectations. None of the help we paid for came anywhere close to our expectations. Moral: rely on your friends and you'll be pleasantly surprised. And seeing how Nancy's help before the wedding keeps coming up when family talks about it, I will be the first to volunteer to help out in any way I can!

Eric, I had so much fun at your wedding! You need to email me your address so we can be sure to send you & Asha an invite. We've already booked Miller Plaza for April 21 so the date & location are at least set.

Dan, I'm thrilled you're even considering coming! We're planning on staying in town at least a few days after the wedding to visit with out of towners (my family from Alaska for example) so let us know your plans when you've got them!

And everyone else, thank you so much. It's all very exciting!

Miller Plaza! Wow! I guess with a name like Mike Harrison co-headlining, you need that big of a stage!

Address on it's way...
