Well, damn, that's some fine news! Congrats to you both! Any one of those days would, of course, be perfect.


Ryder and Indy Posner said...

Congratulations! That's fantastic news! Bark bark, pant pant pant.

Katie said...

First off, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for you two and I am an awesome addition to any wedding so be prepared for that :) My vote is for Oct.17 because that is normally my fall break and so the chances are higher that I can fly eastward and enjoy some great fall colors and a great wedding!

Yahoo! Great news! I'll be in CO on Sept 19th, and the Bike Project reception is Oct 24th, but other than that, all the dates look great!

Thank you, first of all, for the mini history lesson... fabulous food for thought on an otherwise boring wednesday!!!

Congratulations, second of all, on the engagement news!!! If you opt to reproduce, your children will certainly be olympians (or complete klutzes - no guarantees here!!!)

Regarding the dates - I am free for all, but will now consider November 7 as a day of national mourning, so I vote against it due to the negative overtones... ;^) love, amanda

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I only just now have had the strength to share my feelings. It's a sad day in manville... The area's most eligible bachelorette, Spokes cover girl, queen of the blogosphere, one of the most amazing women ever, qt Anna Kelso will be tying the knot?

Jeff is one lucky dude, and I am bitter about this...

Seriously, any of those dates will be awesome!

Blue-eyed Devil said...

Oops, I'm with Bek on the dates!

Again, congrats!...I drank 8 barleywines in your (collective) honor last night. ;)

Anna said...
