Norwoods for Hire

Brent and his good friend Tom have known each other since middle school. They have really been through a lot together and have kept a loyal, close friendship all these years. They still talk multiple times per week and will literally do anything for each other. Tom has taken me in as his friend since I'm married to Brent, so now he will do anything for me, too!

Tom asked Brent to help coordinate and pull off his proposal to his girlfriend, Gina, this Friday night. The proposal was to take place at The Grove restaurant at Discovery Green in downtown Houston. It was kind of exciting to be a part of a proposal, and I have to say it made me really nervous! This was someone's big moment, and I didn't want to mess it up! Brent says I'm really good at finding things to worry about, but if you're a girl, you know what I mean! This is big time! The catch was that the proposal was to take place at 11 pm, which as you know, is WAY past our bedtime, especially on a Friday. But we pounded down a few Diet Cokes and powered through. We rewarded ourselves with champagne when it was all over and felt really proud of ourselves for staying out past midnight. Anyway, here are some pictures of the engagement - it was really beautiful, if I do say so myself. And I do say so myself because I did the decorating. Congrats Tom & Gina!

If you're wondering how we got most of these shots, we were crouched in a corner like paparazzi. I'll leave you with that image in your mind.

Katie and Brent,
You did an amazing job helping Tom with his engagement...not surprising since you both had the engagement of ALL engagements! I'm so happy for Tom.
