A Mighty Fine Engagement

After my 15k last weekend, I hopped into my car and drove down to Sarasota, where I showered and napped at my parents' house and then made my way to Matt's dad's for Scott and Robby's engagement party! (I have to say, it's sometimes convenient that our parents all live near each other!)

Robby is currently living in Ohio and learning to renovate and flip houses while Scott finishes his residencies for PA school, so this was just a small gathering for family and a few of Scott's local friends. They'll be moving to Seattle once they've both finished their respective trainings; having them here together for a mini engagement party was a treat!

Here are some photos of the evening's festivities!
Their engagement photos are SO cute!
We played some yard games and just hung out while the sun was still up.
Matt with the grooms. They're so handsome!

Enrique, Katie, Scott, and Leighanne playing some cornhole.
Then, Matt decided we all needed to learn to ride the OneWheel.
Here's a little video of everyone testing it out. It's my third time on the OneWheel and I must say, I'm pretty good now!
Of course, no party is complete without cake! This one was especially festive.
I'm so glad I was able to make it! I was worried I'd be late because of Gasparilla, but everything ended up working out. By the end of the night, I was absolutely exhausted, but I wouldn't have missed it for anything!

Did you have an engagement party? Matt and I never did! We only did bachelor/bachelorette parties.
Did you do pre-wedding traditions? We took engagement photos but they were cheap and lame; we got married before Pinterest existed!
Have you ever ridden a OneWheel?



  1. I love the cake!!! We did not have an engagement party and I actually don't think we have ever been to an engagement party. We got engaged at the end of May and married early Aug, so there wasn't much time for lots of traditions. I did have a bridal shower and we registered for gifts. My friends Maren and Randy took me to a casino (we did not gamble lol!) for my bachelorette party and Paul had friends here at our house for his. (We moved into our house a week before we got married.)

  2. I love that Matt can raise just one eyebrow--I always wanted that skill!

  3. That cake looks delicious!! Congratulations to Scott and Roby on their engagement!

    No engagement party for me, my family did throw me a small get together for a wedding shower, but it was small. That was so long ago, that I almost forgot about it!
