Congratulations to Erin's cousin Brandon getting engaged to his girlfriend and the mother of their child (Bryan Leonard whom I've talked about before). They were engaged before December 17th (not sure which day though). Brandon had planned a romantic proposal that I thought was really cool. He was going to have the nurses put the ring out in the crib with their son and when they went up to see him on Christmas she would see the ring and he'd propose. Instead, the ring somehow made it into his pants pocket and they got into a fight because he wouldn't let her wash his pants, then during the fight the proposal somehow happened. I wasn't told the story directly, so I'm not sure on all the details.
The ring itself is beautiful. And from when I've been aroudn them, they both seem very lucky to have each other.
