Indecent Proposal

So I got proposed to, no big thang. Duncan just wants to spend an entire lifetime with me forever and ever until a murder/suicide do us part. I think he's making a big mistake, but if he's too dumb to know that then  maybe we're a good match after all.

The proposal story goes like this: we were in the highlands of Scotland walking back from town to his parent's house and we stopped to look at some cows, which is pretty typical of me because I could watch those guys for hours, even though they were just regular ones and not the highland cows. I talked about one cow for a few minutes until Duncan put his arm around me and said "oh, you like that cow?" and I said "yeah" thinking that maybe he's finally warming up to the idea of us having some livestock all up in here, and then he asked me to be the next Mrs. Macdonald (and if a lady with that name can't have a couple cows then I don't know who should!). Anyways, WORST SEGUE EVER. From cow to marriage. And I didn't even get that cow out of it.

So now I'm kinda planning a wedding, but by planning I mean looking at pinterest a lot. I've concluded that most weddings are expensive and tacky. I always thought I'd have more like a picnic wedding with lots of pie, but it turns out we're having a big, Scottish wedding in Scotland and we have to have formal invitations and not use swear words on them.

Here are a few of the things I want to incorporate into the wedding:

I want to make "wedding pi├▒atas" a thing.

Highland Cows
I'm hoping having a bunch of cute cows around me can help me not look like an idiot in photographs. Because that's how I tend to look.

Balloons make things fun.

I ate four donuts the other day. And while I'm admitting embarrassing things about myself, I called my cat Honey Boo Boo the other day.

Any wedding tips?


  1. Congrats on your engagement! That cow is very adorable. I don't really have any wedding tips, but I'm all for having lots of sugary treats.

  2. diana! congratulations!! here in switzerland sheep are typically at weddings. i'm not joking. we were taking a walk one day and were crossing a parking lot and there were 2 sheep all decorated fancy. it took awhile to compute.

    a wedding in scotland will be awesome, the guys will be wearing skirts. amazing. i think i'm going there actually in february!

  3. Congrats! I think a proposal surrounded by cows is wonderful. :)

  4. !!!!! Congratulations!

    I love the way that you told the story.

    AND OH MY GOD I NEED TO MOVE TO SWITZERLAND. (after reading Krystal's comment). AHHHHHHHHHHHH.

  5. I want all proposals in my life (of any kind) to involve puns or wordplay. If old MacDonald doesn't give you some cows the world just doesn't make sense. :)


Please do!
