"Late" Breaking News!

It's official!! Carrie has a boyfriend!! See!

This is Joshua - Carrie's boyfriend as of late last night!! Since she doesn't have a blog and he can't seem to find the time to update his, I get to tell the story!!! Yea!!!!!!! So - here goes! Carrie and Josh went on the same TLC trip this past summer to Russia. They were mainly "acquaintances" before that but on the trip they became friends. Those trips have a way of doing that, I think! Actually - I think that Josh started liking her on that trip but Carrie was just interested in being friends at that point. Anyway, over the next few months through a series of very unfortunate events in Carrie's life, Josh proved himself to be a true and trust-worthy friend to her. He never once pushed his feelings on her at all but just stuck by her through some very rough spots. A funny side note is that after a while I kept telling her that she liked him but she wouldn't quite believe me!! Oh yea!! Mom is right again!! Go me!!!! Sorry - I digress!! On with the story!! Ummm...let's see, where was I before I got side-tracked?!?! Oh yes - Josh just sort of stuck around. It seemed he was usually ending up at my house for one reason or another and eventually, Carrie began to see that there was really something special about this young man. It has been really neat to watch this relationship grow! Josh has proven himself to be "the one" for Carrie. He treats her with respect and loves her for who she is! He is very polite, thoughtful, kind, respectful, and a blast to have around. It really helps that Carrie's brother thinks that Josh is ok and trust me, that is a HUGE deal! He also has managed to get Ashley to like him which is a plus! Probably the bigger thing he has accomplished is that THE DAD likes him too!! Trust me - that is a pretty big deal!!
So - yesterday was a big day for Miss Carrie. The picture below needs some explaining! First of all, he showed up at the house with the dozen roses and took her out for breakfast. Then he delivered the carnations and the small bear to where she works yesterday afternoon! Then he came over before church and brought the perfume! Trust me - this is NOT the Wal-Mart knock off either!! Then after church, he took her to City Place and to the Cheesecake Factory! I would say all in all, she had a pretty good day! What do you think?

So - another love story has begun in our house! Will someone please pray that I survive all this?!?!?!?! I mean really, David is getting married, Carrie has a boyfriend and we haven't even started with Ashley yet! I would say the next few years will be quite interesting in our house, you think?!?!

WOW!!! He must have a really good job! Does he realize that once he sets a precedent, he's going to have to keep that up??? HA! Oh for the freedom of spoiling during dating...no bill, no car payments, no this and that to take the money! Those were the days. So glad she's found someone worthy of her. Good luck with these next few years. I'm just glad I have boys!!!

Hi There:
I tried this once and failed which is not unusual but will try again. I trust you will understand the proverb: "like mother, like daughter" Tell Carrie that I am really happy for her but she has one more inspection to pass before he becomes official, or I should say "he has". He has to be special as she is so he will need to be on his good behavior when i arrive. Just say he has been warned, ha. Pictures were excellent and she looks very happy. Her grandma is very glad she has found someone deserving and i am looking forward to meeting him.
