Breaking News: Nancy Rocks

I'm interrupting my previously scheduled post to show you the amazing engagement gift I received in the mail yesterday from one of my best friends who lives in Colorado. But first, I don't talk about my friends a lot here. It's hard because honestly all of my closest friends from high school or college all live in different states. Some are in Michigan, others in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Colorado. Basically it sucks. But the awesome thing about all my friends, no matter the distance is that I know I can always count on them and I hope they know, they can count on me.

Now back to the gift, the night before SSF proposed we were in Philly visiting with my friends Nancy, Ellen, and Anne and her fiance Bobby. We drank, ate, and looked at old high school pictures into the early morning hours. It was great. One of the best weekends I'd had in a long time. [Little did I know it was about to get 1000 times better]. Anyway, less than a week later I had posted some "first thoughts" regarding my future wedding with this being one of the pictures...

Last night I received this in the mail from Nancy,

with flowers and a Chick-fil-a gift card to boot. [Have I mentioned we like Chick-fil-a?]. I was totally floored. It was so sweet and totally unexpected.

Long story short, Nancy you are the best. I love you (wo)man.


  1. That is such a lovely gift! She's an awesome friend :)

  2. Aww, what a sweet and personal gift!

  3. How cute! I love handmade signs like that. My mom makes a ton of them. I really love that one, and how sweet of your friend to do that!

  4. So sweet! The chick-fil-a card cracked me up... I grew up with one on every corner, but my boyfriend had never seen one until college... and now he's obsessed :)

  5. AWWW. That is so cute! Your friend is so thoughtful :)
