Now that I've picked up my jaw from the floor....

and am no longer hyperventilating, I will share what happened tonight.

Before going to bed, I checked my email and had this comment waiting to be published:

aww happy anniversary guys. i totally agree SCOTT IS AWESOME! well i don't know if tito's mentioned it yet but the wedding is on oct 17,2009 i'm not sending save the dates or even telling anyone yet cus i feel like it's soo early still, but since you guys will have to plan a mini vacation to miami for a few days i thought you guys did need to know in advance. =D



Turns out Anonymous is my oldest son's fiancee. I posted last Labor Day weekend about their engagement (click HERE and scroll down to read it). Well, since I was pretty tired and read quickly through her comment (she is a big "Scott" fan!), all that really registered was that they set a wedding date for October 17. I almost fell out of my chair! OCTOBER 17? Helloooo? That's ummm...like around the corner! My baby boy is getting married in just 3 months after I've been waiting almost 26 years and I find out in the comment section of my blog?

Well, I started yelling (at 11:30 p.m.) "Oh my God! Tito and Gloria are getting married in October!" Amanda came running out of her room and said, "How do you know?" I said, "Look!" as I shoved her towards my laptop. She then turns around and says very non-chalantly, "Mom, it's not this October. It's over a year away. Why are you so excited?" The look of stupidity on my face said, "Huh?" I read the comment once more and then noticed that large as life, it says October 17, 2009!

So now I could breathe. But still...my baby's getting married! I'm so excited! His beautiful bride-to-be is wonderful and I am so happy for both of them.

Gloria, I love you.....when do I get grand-babies? heh!

Ha! Ha! I actually felt tightness in my chest too when I read it. I never noticed it said 2009 either!

I can't even imagine planning a wedding for our two big kids yet....seems like they are still our babies.
