This was an especially good morning to have Champagne at the ready: TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas is getting hitched.

Hoda and Kathie Lee congratulated her on her brand-new engagement to her boyfriend, Michael, who proposed by attaching the (blinding!) ring to her dog's collar. Awwww. The ladies were thrilled, but alas, Hoda reported that the crew is "heartbroken" and are demanding to vet her fiancé.

"That's why I want to throw up," said Bobbie, who later joked about wanting to throw the whole affair for under $500. Well, if anybody can do stylish on a shoestring...

Congrats, Bobbie! Everybody is very happy for you. (The crew will come around.) Share your congrats in the comments below.
