Save The Date!

To the surprised (and the not so surprised) readers of my blog, I hereby officially announce the engagement of Michael (me) to Anne (the girl).

We took some preliminary engagement pictures a while back. Let me know what you think.














Can't you see why I'm madly in love? Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oh, and plan on August 8.

Yay! Congrats! Do you know where you'll be getting married yet? I like the first picture the best. It's an awesome engagement pic. I look forward to getting it in the mail in July!

Christie said...

Yay! That is so exciting. Congrats!

Kate Nally said...

I'm so excited for you!!!!! (I hope you don't mind but I found your blog through Miss Julie Mack!)

If you use the first picture, I won't seem all alone with my double chins! Congratulations! Have you told her how wierd your family is? You truly are the luckiest guy around. Very fitting that you popped the question on the luckiest day of the year!

We cannot decide which picture best captures the essence of Michael and Anne. Other comments have said that his family is weird. We're not convinced about that but we do know that her family is weird so it may be a match made in heaven. She's a lucky girl to get such a great guy!

Actually, I came over here to say happy birthday to you, but instead I think I'll go with "Holy cow! Congradulations!"
It just seems more appropriate. :)
Thats very awesome, Michael.

Missy said...

Also, I LOVE the pictures. Way fun! I hated being engaged, I bet you will too.
That being said, I think August is a good choice, but I suggest you two get crackin on the wedding arrangements so you can change your mind and get hitched sooner if you want to. If you don't get the ball rollin now, you wont be able to do that.
Think about it... a little over FOUR M-O-N-T-H-S-M-O-N-T-H-S-M-O-N-T-H-S-M-O-N-T-H-S---------(these extra -'s represent the extraness of how it feels when you're waiting for one of the absolute best moments of your life... tick-tock-tick-tock)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- baby step to Aug 8... baby step to Aug 8

Ha ha! I have to disagree with Michelle...I LOVED being engaged! Yeah...it's hard at times, but so fun. You'll be married FOREVER, so enjoy it! Love you guys! And love the pics...I REALLY think you should use one. Ha ha!

Tina said...

Julie Mack said...

I vote for the one where you're biting her hand. :)

Becky Glover said...

SWEET! Congratulations - as I said before I had a feeling when you brought her to the family dinner. Your family, well your extended family is a little nutso but no more than any other family these days...looks like she'll be able to cope! I think you should use the last one for your engagement pic, it's got your trademark thumbs up...LOL! Oh and August is a great month I was married August 9th, 1996...wow I feel old!

Updike Update said...

Oh my goodness, George!!! I can't believe you are engaged. She looks like a fun girl. I'm way excited for you. Send an invite!!!!

Kelly and Megan said...

Congrats! How exciting! Oh, this is your cousin Kelly's wife. We are so happy for you guys!

Michael! "We never thought this day would come, never! And it came!" That's from my big fat greek wedding, which maybe you should consider too. There's a nice Aphrodite's palace back drop. No, but seriously, Congratulations! I am ecstatic for you! I personally like the first picture the best- it looks like you're mocking the cliché announcements with the cheesy smile, while at the same time resembling a mix of the cone-heads and the aliens from Galaxy quest. All good things :)
