Big News

So, it’s no secret that I try to keep my personal life out of the blog as much as possible. As I’ve said before, I prefer to make this blog about things (as I see them), rather than about myself and all my awesomeness.


There are certain events in a man’s life that completely change everything – that deserve to be blogged about – and this is one of them…

I’m engaged!


I picked that ring all by myself! (…OK… TLS helped too)
My fiance didn’t want anything to do with the ring picking.
How’d I do?  I’ll be honest… I’m pretty proud of myself!

Yup. I’ve been dating a girl for a good while now, and we’ve gotten to that point.

Whaddya mean you can’t believe it? … I can’t believe it!! Here I was just minding my own business, enjoying my singleness, and then this amazing woman just pops into my life! (Ok… it was a little more involved than that.) But really, what was I supposed to do?!

Let me take you back a few months… remember that couple of weeks about 4 months ago when people started asking me if I was OK, because the blog was really suffering, and I was sounding like an idiot every day?  I just wasn’t performing to my usual blogging standard. Well, that’s why. That’s when the relationship started. I’ve since recovered and brought the blog level back up somewhat, but I fully expect the same dip in blog performance to happen over the next few months.

Anyway, dear readers. Let’s not belabor this point, nor dwell on all this wedding madness. I will make a pact with you. I will not be gushing and/or complaining and/or bragging and/or spilling every detail about my impending wedding here on the blog. This blog will be a mostly wedding-talk-free zone. Please note, however, that this is going on in my life, and I just might get a little distracted.

If you would like to be thoroughly sapped out, here is our wedding website: Check back often for updates as we get closer to the date!

  1. Congratulations… I had a feeling around Halloween something was up. But I didn’t want to be that person that is always asking those horribly annoying questions about dating and relationships. I am happy for you!

  2. This is so cool!!!! I love great news around the holidays! Can’t be a better happy moment. I don’t know Audrey, but I’m sure she must be special (Sam has high standards) and I know she’s very lucky!

    Congrats and All of the best!

  3. YOU’D BETTER GIVE ME THE SHOUT OUT ON RING PICKING. Well, this leads to a couple of points. 1. If your blog is going to suffer, all readers should now read mine instead :). 2. This is going to necessitate a blog by me about my feelings on this subject. And 3. I have some news to drop on Audrey too, but I am keeping that on the DL until she is hook line and sinker.

  4. Congrats!! I am so happy for you. I just went to your wedding website and read about how you two met… I loved reading about it! And the engagement! I didn’t notice if you had a date set yet or not…. do you? When is it and where?


  5. Brauns heart W.E. Which is why we’re SO thrilled that we also love the future Mrs. W.E. Woot woot!

  6. Congrats, I hear she is pretty awesome, although I don’t know either of you personally! Oh and the ring is a today tomorrow and the future ring, I know cause I wanted one, till I picked out the one I currently have:D
