An Accidental Suprise!

Tonight started off pretty lack luster, Alex had a mini meltdown so I didn't get to enjoy the roast or scalloped potatoes I'd prepared (they were only done cooking by the time we had to go out the door), after a quesadilla we hopped in the car and headed to soccer practice (usually we walk but we were running LATE). I stitched a bit on Giggles before he has to go away for a bit, more on that later. Anyway, I came home and Matt had gone out for some errands he had to run (going to the bank machine). Anyway, mom arrived and we were chatting when Matt came in. He looked really upset (and a bit guilty with a Future Shop bag in his hands). Apparently while at the intersection he'd had an accident, he'd been over the stop line when a car made a sharp turn and clipped the car. All his fault apparently. Knowing I'm the self appointed legal expert he wanted me to take a look at the damages on the drivers side. The lights were in tact so I looked hard at the drivers side for any new bumps when I notice he was down on one knee with a diamond ring in his hand, I just about died!! He'd actually fooled me, and I was one happy fool :) I've now pulled out my L&L The Wedding and hope to work that up by Christmas :). I should really head to bed, I don't normally blog this late but I was just too excited to sleep!!!

Congratulations!!! Fun proposal story too.
When I married my DH last year I said I'd do us a sampler or something to help us remember the date... I've not got around to it yet - mind you we've not done the photos either.
