Let's Get Married

"Meet me at the altar in your white dress.
We ain't gettin' no younger, we might as well do this."

That's basically what Matt said to Erin this weekend! Ok, not really like that at all, but the result is the same: ERIN AND MATT ARE ENGAGED!!

In other news, Kate and I (Erika) went to the roommate games. And it sucked. Cause we didn't get to play. Seriously, we were like 1 out of 2 rooms who didn't get to play (the other room was Heidi and Caitlynn).

So we decided that we should so something really cool to make up for it. Unfortunately, that's hard to do when Jessica's not here to help us come up with things to do and people to do them with. We sat in the middle of the road for a while wondering what we should do. Pathetic, I know.

Then we figured that we should go to our friends' house. So we did. We went to visit Josh, Ben, Steffan, Mike, Dan, and all the other people who live in that house. It was great fun. They have On-Demand cable that teaches you how to dance. It doesn't get much better than that. I now know how to do the heel-toe, the wop, and... well, Kate and I sat out on the booty pop lesson. Heh.

Then the next day we went back to their house again for a bonfire. That was great fun as well. Fires are great, even if there isn't a band to throw in them. ;)
And we met a nice girl named Betsy.

And then, on Sunday we went back to their house to watch the football game. I was definitely conflicted cause I'm a Lions fan (YAAAY for Millen getting fired, btw), but they suck and it's hard to watch a game and root for them cause then you just get depressed. And on top of that, they were playing the 49er's which is the team Andrea's brother plays for. So it was pretty sweet watching somebody that I've met play in the NFL.

In short that was our weekend. Really the only reason I wrote this blog was to tell everyone that Erin and Matt are engaged! Woo! Annnd.... this is what her ring looks like:

Very simple, very pretty - good job, Matt.

Ok. Peace out.

Hey, I was at the roommate games and I got chosen, but my roommate had fled, so it was more depressing for me. Kate, you, and I should have put our names for the triples game. I think we could've won, but I don't know if they would've allowed that.

The Lions are depressing, but sometimes it's entertaining to watch them be horrible. You know they're going to lose, you just want to see them come up with a new way to lose. But yes, Millen is gone and that is great.

Congrats to Matt and Erin.

HOORAY for Matt and Erin! Somehow I knew... he was gonna do it this weekend. That's simply awesome.

Oh, and Matt Millen deserves a watery grave for what he has done to my home team. X(
