He Liked It…

So he put a ring on it!!


22 days ago my boyfriend of over six years turned into my fiance in grand fashion that I will never forget.

If you care to read the cute details, here they are:

On November 1 we went for a walk down to the waterfront and strolled through Sculpture Park just before sunset. I had never been in the park and absolutely love the water so I was excited! As we got to the edge of the park overlooking the sound, ferry and mountains Dan began to reminisce about the past six years and all we have been through and what we have become. He then got down on one knee and popped the question, on-lookers cheered and congratulated us. I then noticed that Dan had hired a hidden photographer to capture the special moment – job well done, babe! We then continued on with our walk to dinner (the whole reason for the walk in the first place) and when we arrived at the restaurant the room was full of our family and friends to help celebrate our exciting next step in our love story. Such a great night!

Scavenger Dash Seattle

Have you heard of Scavenger Dash? They have events all throughout the country yearlong. Check out this site to see if they are coming to your city. I highly recommend you try it!

Here is a quick run down from their website:

What is Scavenger Dash?

Scavenger Dash is a wildly fun urban adventure. Teams of two solve twelve clues, scavenge items, take photos, complete fun challenges and have a wild adventure…all while discovering the city in a whole different way. It’s an amazing race on a local level, where anyone can participate.

This was the second year in a row that I participated and again it was a blast! I was able to improve from last year in my time (by an hour) by learning better tactics. I think my favorite part about the whole experience is getting out in your town, interacting with random people on the street and really getting to see the good in people – they help you with challenges sometimes. This year my friend Joie joined me and it was great. Here are some pics we took along the way.

One of the challenge clues was to find this little guy down by the waterfront


Another challenge was to get a picture being handcuffed by security

This challenge was to find 4 strangers and do the “ta-da” pose

Overall, it was another fun-filled dash and I can’t wait to participate again next year. I also think it would be super rad to try it out in a city you are visiting. Have you ever done something like this?
