My mom is engaged!

So my mom is a little crazy... her and my step-dad were married for 11 years then decided divorce was the only option. I was in college, it didn't affect me much. I am still close with him, I adore his girlfriend & we hang out every once in a while.

Back to my mom... well, she went a little crazy for the past 5 years... crazy as in she went from relationship to relationship and she blamed it on "re-living her 20's because she had 2 kids back then" which annoys me because, ugh hello, it's your own fault you had kids. Anyways, I couldn't care less to meet another boyfriend of hers. I was never super nice to any of them.. nor was Jillian. We kind of teamed up and didn't engage in conversation because we were just really over it. But we were never super rude.. we just did our own thing. The main thing that drives us nuts is the way our mother acts.. she can put up a front and be over the top nice and affectionate and we are like EW STOP.
Ok, My rant is over...

A year ago she started dating a new guy, I actually met him on accident. I was going to meet my mom & her friends for wine and he surprised her and me when he busted up our cocktail hour. But he seemed very nice and I decided I should give this guy a chance. Fast forward a year to a bar downtown where we all met up for a drink one night where Aaron asked if I would have his blessing to marry my mom. Literally my first reaction was , "Really, are you sure?" and he said, "One thousand percent" and I said, "yes of course I am totally fine with that." And that was about it. He asked my brother, Jillian & my grandparents. Everyone said yes.

Aaron took my mom on a last minute trip to Greece this week.. First of all... Who takes last minute trips to Greece?? Only place I go last minute is somewhere within a 100 mile radius. I digress. He proposed to my mom on Monday and we all got picture texts of the ring with her saying "I said yes!!". I think she knew it was coming... but I am glad she is happy and I am 100% done having to meet her boyfriends. Looks like they are having a great time in Greece and I may have to make a trip there one of these days!!

here is the ring!
this is their fancy patio...

It is almost Friday!! I am headed to the river this weekend for my friend Sunni's birthday. We always float the river for her birthday & it is an amazing time... Last year I had 1 (or 4) too many Vodka/crystal light mixtures on the river... ran through a fence and this happened to my back/shoulder... good times.
