Well, How About That?!
Steven and I went to a going away party for our friends Christer and CiCi. They are moving back to Sweden after living here for seven years. Saturday was a day long shindig where we were instructed to come dressed as our favorite Swedes. This is the reason for Steven's dye job. (see previous post!)
The groom found the bride and convinced her to go outside to the deck of the three story house. His premise for getting her outside was the old, "I've got to show you something" routine. Once outside, he got down on one knee and proposed. The bride was shocked and overjoyed. At that point, the groom tells her that they are getting married right there and then. He had asked a friend to become a notary, and here in South Carolina, a notary can officiate a wedding.
And, who was this couple? Why, if you haven't guessed by now---Steven and I tied the really surprising knot this weekend.
And yes. I'm still in shock. Thanks for the blog fodder, husband.
