It's about time!!!

My brother, Michael Thorsell Rougeau, is engaged to the wonderful Natalie Egan! He finally popped the question after almost 3 years of dating/skyping etc.

We are seriously so excited! Natalie is amazing and comes from an amazing family. They are so great together. They do things like....

Run a 5k.

Eat crawfish.

Hang out in LSU Snuggies.

Pretty cool huh? This is not an all-encompassing list mind you. Throw in Jazz games, concerts, leaf fights, silly faces, video games, LSU football, and a myriad of other things. They're pretty much fabulous.

The tentative date, I am told, is set for June 3rd. That means Michael and I will be taking a road trip (with my mother) to Louisiana in the next few months!

For any of you who are interested, this is a picture of her family from Thanksgiving. Here's a couple reasons why this is a perfect match. See the girl in blue on the far left? That's Jane. She is married to the man in the striped shirt right behind her. That's Jake. He also happens to be my brother's best friend. And see the girl in red sitting next to Jane? That's Emily. She was my best friend when I was at LSU. We were pretty much inseparable. I now get to be her sister-ish. And Michael is now brothers-ish with his best friend. Plus the entire Egan clan is awesome. Parfait!

Congrats to Michael and Natalie! Love you both!


  1. How exciting! My little sister just got engaged as well. It's all so wonderful. I hope you enjoy your road trip this summer!

  2. Congrats form me! I love weddings. And that girl is so cute. You're brother is a lucky dude.

  3. Woohoo! Congratulations to your sweet family... and to the Egan family!

  4. Couldn't have asked for a better match myself! We're just one big happy family :) I'm SO glad Natalie found such a great guy to marry... and I'm SO glad she will get such a wonderful sister as well.

  5. Congrats to your brother! She's a beautiful girl!
