october 30th. our best friends got engaged! and we were in on it...i loved it. lauren had not the slightest idea. we went to see some bands, including a mystery one. it just so happened to be jake and his friend mark on the guitar. she didn't know he was going to get up there and sing, especially songs to/about her. you know how it ends. he called her up to the stage area and got on one knee. she squealed and we cried. it was glorious. her green diamond ring is killer (we already saw it many months ago ; ). the next morning some of her dear denton friends hosted a "croquet partet" brunch, with mimosas and crepes! we mingled, some played croquet, and i gathered three pounds of pecans. delicious. i love brunches, and i love engagements. congrats lauren & jake!
p.s. sorry i didn't get a pic of the happy couple! they have some great ones on their camera. more to come.
