engagement elves

We got some snow on Friday evening, so Richard and I had grand plans to spend most of Saturday inside and see a movie Saturday night. But at about 2:30 on Saturday afternoon, our day got a little more exciting when our dear friend Jon told us he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend Amy that night. This was in response to an invitation to the movies we had sent via text, so we immediately called Jon and asked how we could be of assistance. He had everything pretty much under control, but he did let us come over to his condo after he and Amy left for the night to set a few things up.

We put champagne in the fridge...

roses and pictures on the table...

And hoped that she'd say yes! Jon had planned for he and Amy to get drinks at their first-date spot, then propose back at his place. After Jon asked and Amy accepted, (woohoo!), they joined her family- who live close by and had intentionally not answered their phones when Amy called with the big news- for dinner. We excitedly met them for dessert and a round of in-person congratulations. We're thrilled for our friends and so excited for their big day! 2012 is shaping up to be a year full of fun weddings.

blurry iphone pic- was in such a hurry to get to Jon's in time that I forgot by camera! but you can see Amy's beautiful bling!
