Remember my campaign back in February? 31 Dates in 31 Days-- ring any bells? (If not, you simply must go back and read all about it.)
It's funny, because since then, when I run into people that I haven't seen in a while, or meet someone new who reads my blog, they often ask, "So, what ever happened with your brother and that girl with the Dates and the blog?" My answer always goes something like, "They're still dating. No, I don't know if they'll get married, but we all love her."
Well, drumroll please . . . . .
Evan and Tamara are now engaged to be married. Hurray!!!! And yes, I am taking the credit for:
1. Helping Evan get the second date with my blog and Facebook campaign
2. Making him a favorite with Tam's friends and family before they ever met him because who doesn't love a man who: loves kids, has skills, doesn't take himself too seriously, is musical, loves animals, is easy going, and is what every girl wants. How could they resist him once I'd posted all those adorable photos of Evan?
3. Interfering as much as I could get away with and not mess it all up. I got myself a girl-crush on Tamara early on, and really, really wanted things to work out with them. And yet, Evan is a man who will not be pushed. I just had to gently nudge now and then and say my prayers.
We are so thrilled for them! Go to Tamara's blog to see a photo-article about the proposal.
And a question to my local (Sac-area) readers: would you come to a little open house if I threw one for them? I think it would be fun to let some of you voyeurs actually meet them. What do you say?
