Sweet Shot Tuesday!! Maggie and Bryan!

{Maggie and her Daddy!}

This past December my "Teacher-Girl" Maggie became engaged to her college love, Bryan.
This was a surprise for her, and I'm told the day went somewhat like this...

Maggie wanted to stay in her 'jammies because she'd been sick the last few days {being a new teacher is rough on the immune system!}.
Bryan insisted they go out, and drive around their alma mater, DePaul University...

Upon reaching the campus he insisted she exit the vehicle...HA! I can only imagine the look of horror that crossed my daughter's face! I'm guessing she had thoughts about ruining her shoes.

I picture him pulling her out of the warm car {this is December in Chicago} and dragging her to his designated engagement spot!

I think she was glad she got out of the car...

We were all waiting at Maggianos for them to arrive...

We had a wonderful time, and Teacher-Girl did not complain once about having to exit that warm car!!

She had no idea we would all be waiting for her. I give Bryan loads of credit for being able to plan and execute this surprise. Maggie is her mother's daughter, and we usually smell a plot way before it happens. You're a keeper Bryan!!

Maggie is joining a wonderful family...
Here's Bryan's Dad and younger brother, Keith...

Maggie and her MIL-to-be, Cindy...

Bryan's little brother Scott...

And I couldn't resist a picture of Maggie with her sister and sister-in-laws!!

Paige {Bryan's little sister}, Margaret, Maggie, Molly, and Carolyn!!

We're on our way to planning the wedding!
