Big Weekend Review

Claire's weekend got started off early with her big promotion last Friday.

She got a cool date on Friday night (she bought of course...she's my sugar momma!) including a nice boat ride and a Thai dinner.

Saturday we went to the Virginia State Fair. We ate all kinds of fried things including Fried Soda...Coke, Root Beer and Orange Crush...fresh fried pork rinds...is eating deep fried skin gross?...and a corndog.

We even saw one of the most disgustingly beautiful things ever...EVER! Pork Parfait.
We saw wonderful people and, when Claire had the camera, animals. On the way back to P-Towne we saw Burn After Reading (not a good Cohen Bro's movie. Slow moving and not really good.) and ate a little Cajun Chicken pasta at Kincaids. It was nice to have a real meal after a day of feasting on deep fried things.

Sunday = Church, 5-mile run and dinner at a friends.

Oh yea, on Saturday morning, she said yes.

Should Claire be offended that the pork parfait got higher billing than the engagement?

Congrats again!

OMG Bogie! Sorry I'm late to the party, but congrats!! I'm so excited for y'all!

Becky said...

Hmmmm....you wait until she gets the promotion to put the ring on her finger. Gold digger.

Congrats to you both...and we all can't wait to see the inevitable...two normal people who get sucked into WEDDING WORLD and can talk and think about nothing else.

Oh, yeah. It will happen. :)

Hope we get an invitation. LOL

Congratulations!!! That is a beautiful ring!

April said...

BOGART?? I go away for a few days and then I have to hear about your engagement from Becky and Katie at Bunco? Yeah, can you believe total strangers are talking about you at Bunco? I know. Weird. Anyhoo, congratulations!! (I realize that has been said a thousand times already but I feel like such a poser saying Mazel Tov. Plus I think someone already said that. So, um, yeah.) The ring is beautiful, good job. I am sure you guys will have your own happily ever after!!

Practically Joe said...

You guys always have awesome good times! Congrats to the two of you!
I've married off three daughters so if you need any guidance on wedding planning I'm here for you.
It would be so good to help with one I'm not paying for.
