I will let the pictures speak for themselves!!

And yes I am crying and out of my very nice dress I wore to dinner. Who knew!
And the story goes like this....
We went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant Fiamma Restaurant in Dilworth. Just an average date night, so I didn't even think anything could happen. After dinner we got home Bubs built a fire, I grabbed the wine and tunes. We were just sitting by the fire chatting and drinking when he asked "how many boulders?" Now to me this is an every day question and nothing crazy but to the rest of you its our lil saying of how much we love each other. After my trips to Colorado (and yes I am obsessed with that state), we started measuring our love in boulders. And depending how you feel is how many boulders you get! So Friday night I was feeling 17 boulders, an all time high, and he said "enough boulders to spend the rest of your life with me" and got down on one knee with the ring and asked "(my full name) will you marry me?" And after about 6 "shut ups" and "are you serious" I said yes! And he got the correct hand and finger!!!! There were plenty of tears and tons of phone calls. Oh and a gorgeous ring that he picked out all by himself! Ahhh sigh. We are so happy and so excited to spend the rest of our lives together! Now apparently we have to plan this thing!!! EK!

Finally, a long over due post of pictures of the windows. I have been away for over a week and haven't had a chance to update the site with pics! But here we go! Again my computer has a virus and refuses to let me use the internet so I am working from two different computers. Bare with me! Which means i only have the after pictures right. Which is what you all wanted anyway! I will do another post of before pictures shortly!!!

I saved 4 of the old windows so I could make frames and mirrors out of them. And we may turn two of the windows into a headboard, without the glass. Any ideas of what else to do with them? These guys are over 50 years old and in great shape. I wanted to keep them forever!

The old windows out of the house already! It took them only 2 hours to remove and install all 12 windows. Amazing...really they were awesome!
New windows sitting in their spots in the dinning room. They aren't sealed yet as you can see!
The picture window installed and waiting to be sealed.

Finished product! The picture window sealed and ready to be used! It looks soooo clean! We jsut hung the blinds so the view isn't as good as shown here. I will post some pictures of that as well!
