I thought Andy's beautiful choice deserved a better picture than the blurry one from the day he proposed (I might have been shaking a bit there).



Not mine! Andy's!

Andy was 30 on Saturday. Since he grew up in Kansas, we splurged on closer tickets to the Rangers/Royals game for the evening and what d'ya know...

He CAUGHT a foul ball off a Royals bat!

We've never even sat in the same section as a foul ball...this was so much fun.

(and just FYI...MY Rangers beat Andy's Royals)

I've finished two classes' worth of papers (paper one over "whiteness" in immigrant fiction, paper two over the dominant "white patriarchal ideology" in Forrest Gump--do you see a theme?), so that leaves me with only 2 finals and 1 paper left. Whew! The last few months have been a whirlwind. I cannot believe that here we are, Spring Semester almost over, and a little over four months until "the wedding."


So I'm retreating back into the land of literature for the evening, but I plan to return soon. I started a little knitting while preparing to write that second paper (i.e. playing the DVD, knitting, listening, watching, pausing the DVD, note-taking, and knitting while watching some more). Nothing big, just a purple sock. But it's helping my sanity.

There's nothing like a little knitting. Especially when you should be planning a wedding you need a little stress relief. ;-)
