Weekend Update: Surprise!

Top: Forever 21 (recent). Pants: Zara.
I wish I was posting a picture in front of the entrance of Churchill Downs... instead you see me with my trifecta bet for the Kentucky Derby that Ted and I placed at Downs at Lehigh in Allentown, PA. We made the pitstop to place the bets on our way to a very special event...

My best friend Sara got engaged! Chris got down on one knee and asked her to marry him at the restaurant on Main Street in Bethlehem where they went on their first date. Ted and I saw it all go down along with their parents across the street inside Hotel Bethlehem. We could tell from at least 50 yards away that she was completely surprised. (I might have missed my calling as a paparazza.)

Could she have been wearing a more appropriate dress? Apparently it was the first thing she took out of the closet and Chris said, "Yes! Wear that!" She scheduled a pedicure for herself the day before and he encouraged her to get her nails done as well to relax since she just finished up her education classes for the semester. Just one of the many signs she noticed after the fact. We went on to spend the rest of the night celebrating.

Congratulations and best wishes Sara and Chris!
