So, I'm a little bit behind on this but Brittany from Mrs. Yellow Ribbon started this new little meme and I've decided to join. =) This week, she asked us to show her our rings and tell her the story behind them! I've been lacking for some...interesting blogging material so I figured why not?! Plus, it's a cute idea. =)
Did you look at rings together?
Yes, we did. I think we looked at rings...3 times before he proposed. I always told him that I'd wear (and love) whatever he gave me, but he insisted on looking at rings. Of course, there were also times when I wanted to look. =)
Do you like your ring? Did you from the beginning?...and be honest!
Absolutely!! Every time we went shopping, I gravitated to the same style of ring. He got me the exact ring that I wanted. [He also paid entirely too much for them, but I'm not going to complain.]
How often do you wear your rings?
All. The. Time. I take them off to shower, do nasty dishes, when I'm getting my hands dirty in the kitchen, putting on lotion, swimming in the ocean... Since I don't go to the beach all the time, do nasty dishes or cook that heavily these days, they're on my finger a lot. I feel kinda naked without them.
Do you clean your rings?
Yes, but probably not as often as I should. I usually take them to get cleaned... I have also cleaned them myself in the last couple of months because I realized that gunk was building up behind the diamonds. Every time I've taken it to be cleaned, they neglect to get the gunk out and it really frustrates me. I actually need to get them dipped soon. I'm just hesitant to leave them for a week... They are very important to me.
What went through your mind the very first time you saw your ring?
Oh gosh. I think my mind went blank!! All of a sudden, he was bent down on one knee next to our table holding out a ring! Although, I might have thought "He got the one I wanted!" I know that crossed my mind at some point. =P He did a great job. =)
