We made the top three!!!

I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. Addison and I actually made it to the top three finalists for the Simon G. Jewelry “Perfect Proposal” contest online.

The prize is a $10,000 engagement ring and $5,000.

Competition is fierce, so while discussing joke strategies (one included road tripping across America to access every public library computer known to man. Another idea included something with Magic the Gathering…it was Addison’s idea), we thought it would be fun to start a blog about how we’re trying to win. You know… in case we did decide to road trip across America in search of more IP addresses.

I figure when this is all said and done (whether we win that beautiful ring or not), I can transition this into my wedding-planning blog. And after that? The start of our life as newlyweds.

Yes, I’m a writer. No, Addi isn’t freaking out about me writing just about us and our lives on the Internet. In fact, he helped me come up with the name.

We feel like it describes us. We’re a simple couple from a simple town. We come from simple families and simply love each other.

But together, we have big dreams and big plans. We hope that this competition will help us get a jump start in making those dreams a reality.

So, right now there’s no ring. But we’ve talked about it for awhile so whether we win or not, one is coming. But to answer a lot of the questions I’ve been getting from friends: No. We are not currently engaged. Addison wanted to wait until we actually had a ring and a plan. (He also admitted to planning on coming to my home in Florida for New Years to ask my Dad’s permission! EEP!)

Please consider voting for us, and if you’re still not convinced, keep coming back to read more about us. Maybe you’ll find it in your heart to lend us a hand and vote!
