Engagement Parties and Weddings

Adventures, friendships

It’s time for a Throwback Thursday!


This photo was taken in November 2013 when my wonderful friends Jen and Andrew got engaged. Andrew planned a super secret (to her) engagement, while getting that whole group of us to get to Spokane and be in the room when he proposed.

I don’t know HOW we pulled it off without ever accidentally telling Jen or saying something that she overheard. We knew several months in advance that the engagement would happen and there was a large Facebook group chat going on to coordinate everything. I actually had to avoid her a little bit because I was too excited and didn’t want to spill the beans.  It was a beautiful moment and so fun to see that she was completely shocked. Well done, man.

The random thing that makes me smile about that 2013 photo is that this was the night of mine and J’s first kiss. Then, maybe a month later, I decided we were just friends and we didn’t kiss again for 11 more months. Now, here we are in September 2015, excited to go party with some of my favorite people this weekend to celebrate Andrew being able to snag Jen for life. Life is crazy.

It’s going to be a great weekend!

PS. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be wearing that same bracelet, based on my packing last night. I don’t buy many accessories because I feel like I never wear them. Maybe I’m wrong!
