Our friends Addie and Rick got engaged last night!
A total surprise for Addie, which was tough for Rick considering that they 1. picked out the ring together and 2. kind of have already been planning their wedding. It worked, though, and I was the lucky one who knew in advance, so my food-crusted camera was READY.
I love stuff like this.
Last night was the last home game of the season (where the eff did summer go?), so Addie and Rick invited some friends over to watch the game and have dinner. Rick somehow managed to convince the Drive mascot, Reedy, to walk to his place after the first inning.
So, in walks Reedy, a cameraman, and Reedy's assistants. Addie's all "oh weird, why is this frog all up in my business, there are a gazillion other people here," and THEN the announcer started talking to Rick from across the field.
OHHHHHHHH guys it was the best ever. I haven't witnessed a ton of engagements, and usually I'm not a fan of public ones. This, though....it was JUST public enough. All of Greenville got to see the engagement, but we weren't at the stadium so we got back to just our little group of friends after a few minutes.
Love, your self-promoting friend.
