feel the burn

This is my dance teacher this weekend (the guy)

and it's gonna look just like that when I'm done! (yeah right!) Seriously though, this guy is kicking my butt. I've only had one two hour lesson with him and it feels like we were working for weeks. Two more days of this! yay! and Ouch! and someone stop the room spinning please, I'm getting dizzy!!!!

The Devil in Modern Society

Go ahead, ask me about my computer at work! Ask me why I prefer linux... just ask....

A video because I need to laugh at my situation:

and another, that makes me laugh even more:

"Let's have a dance for the computer genius man"... "woman"

Wuv.... twue wuv

Yes, the family gossip is true. Daryl and I are engaged to be married. It was as much of a surprise to us as it was to anyone, but when something is perfect in life there's no need to waste time figuring out that it is perfect because it all just falls into place that way.

The wedding will be very small- our location can only hold 50 people (so don't be sad if you don't get an invitation. If we could invite everyone then we certainly would!) We are having it at the beautiful Holden Arboretum towards the end of May. The last time we were there, I snapped some pictures of the important locations. Daryl has the camera at the Brown's game, so I can't upload the photos right now. When you see the photos, it is easy to imagine how gorgeous it will be in the spring with all the blooms!

Plans are pretty well underway. Next week I'm meeting with the photographer to schedule our engagement shoot. I'm disappointed that we didn't do this earlier when the weather was nice, so that we could do the shoot outside in my hometown of Kent. Now I'm not sure where we should go. Maybe one of the dance halls. Any suggestions are welcome! This is our photographer. I just love her style and the way she sees the details. Her personality fits so well with mine and Daryl's! She's been a joy to work with so far!

Also, I think this "first dance" is hillarious. watch it and laugh.
