Since, lately, it seems like all I have been hearing in the news and reading on the net is all "doom and gloom," I thought that I would share some really good, exciting news even if it's of a slightly personal nature.
My younger brother proposed to his girlfriend Saturday.......and she said Yes!!!!!! (We all new she would)
We here at Dizzy Dad headquarters are so happy and excited for them that we are fittin' to burst!
We also think that it is about time too even though we always thought of them as married anyway. The lack of a ceremony never mattered :)
Anyway, the first time I heard that Little Bro had met Little Sis-in-law was about 4 years ago, and I believe the very first thing I did when I heard this info was what any good older brother would do and that was nab his cell phone and call her and tell her to "back up off my man!"
Of course, it was all in good fun, but what a way to make a first impression on Little Bro's future wife.
After that call, I noticed something odd about Little Bro...
He was actually happy, which was apparent by his beaming smile, but it was more than that. He was practically giddy.
This guy is never giddy! (well, he was when he called to tell me he proposed too, so he's been giddy twice that I know of)
Up til then, Little Bro was the type of guy who was always reserved, never showing anger or joy or excitement or anything that could remotely be mistaken as a human emotion. Basically, he was the exact opposite of me, a guy that wears his emotions on his sleeve.
Yeah, Little Bro was goofy, but coming from our family that was kind of expected. Giddy, however, is a totally different story.
I was a little taken aback by it.
It was like he was telling me that this girl was it. The only one he'd ever love for the rest of his life, and I believed him even if he didn't say it out loud.
He didn't have to.
Then Mama Bear and I met the girl causing all the ruckus, and we started to understand why Little Bro was so infatuated.
Little Sis-in-Law is wicked awesome!
She's one of those people that upon first meeting you feel like you have known her your whole life. So, from the beginning, Mama Bear and I really liked her, and Pizzly just loves her too. He couldn't ask for a better Aunt, which is why we here are so stoked that Little Bro popped the question.
Don't get me wrong. Mama Bear and I have always thought of them as a match set, so we've pretty much always referred to Little Sis-in-Law as such, and Pizzly has always known her as his Aunt. We're just totally giddy ourselves because they are so happy, and NOBODY deserves to be happy more than they do.
So, I just wanted to spread the word and the love and congratulate Little Bro and Little Sis-in-Law on their upcoming nuptials. Mama Bear, Pizzly, and I all think the world of you two and love you bunches.
Now, Let's CELEBRATE!!!!!
