Not that I have the option any longer, but I think I would eat an entire cheesecake all by myself before proposing to a man.
So that's not to say I wouldn't do it, I just think I would have to give it a lot of thought, and have lots of TUMS nearby.
How would that work anyways? I put the ring on my own finger? The man gets a ring?
Do any of you know any girl that has proposed marriage to a man?
I've proposed dinner plans, and I've proposed some vacation plans, I've even proposed solutions to relieving future flying car congestion - future flying traffic lights.
But why is it I can't imagine proposing marriage?
Maybe I'll have the answer when I think about this again...four years from now.
Yesterday Ms. Emily turned 23. Happy Birthday Little One!!!

Today Chris celebrates his 29th birthday.
My early surprise birthday present to him was 2 tickets to see Monty Python's "Spam-a-Lot" in NYC.
I managed to pull off the surprise and Chris and I agreed it was probably the best show we've both ever seen.
What a treat the world got when this boy was born.
My love to the birthday boy.

Today Chris performs his last show with the Lewisville Community Theatre.
His rise back to acting was well-received and I for one hope he continues to act.
Thank you to everyone who came out in support. It made Chris' nights and mine as well.
Thanks Mom, Dad, Mr. and Mrs. Wehkamp, Emily, Uncle Jay and Aunt Ros, Nan, Nana, Beth and Everett and Alyssa, Shelley (and the family for letting us have her that night!), John and Ryan and Caleb and Shea, Dave, Jenica, Julie, Keri, Christie, Kori, Becca, Jenny, Tina and girls, and all the cast for making me feel at home night after night.

I had to concede that it did in fact beat out the model clipper ship one of my second graders gave me two years ago.
Today though, I think the scorpion ashtray might have met its match.

Chris is a huge hit.
"I haven't seen acting like this since Barnard Hughes in Much Ado About Nothing. Chris Wehkamp takes the theatre to a new level."
"I would not be surprised to see Chris Wehkamp with a Tony next year. Master model actor."
"A must-see for anyone who appreciates fine acting. Wehkamp delivers."

(and future Mom and Dad)
Chris and I are taking part in a new social experiment.
It's called pre-marriage trial living together.
Chris moved in this weekend and we will "live together" for two weeks. At the end of two weeks he will move out and we will live in autonomy until our next trial period.
We realized we have both been living alone for about eight years and are quite used to having our own space and our own things and our own way of living.
Just like the 5K in March, we're training.
Throwing ourselves into the same apartment on June 22 might be a bit much, so we're easing into the idea. Few days here, few weeks there, eventually moving up to the big 80 year together thing.
So far so good.
All 3 days have been successful.
Chris took me to Tom Thumb to pick out any flowers I wanted.
I suffered through 4 hours of boys throwing around a football and bad commercials.
Chris endured my first ever night of sleep-talking, and I put his towel in the dryer so it would be warm for him when he got done with his shower.
Ah, temporary pre-marital still best-behavior living together.
It's not for everyone, but so far, it's been good for us.
We hope you'll stay tuned.
We love you,
Sarah & Chris
