Anyone else a Keeping Up With The Kardashians fiend? Obviously, I am (in case you haven’t noticed, I’m entertained by mindless television – lots of Desperate Housewives, Girls Next Door, The Soup, et al) – and so I’m not shocked that Kim has already chosen her own engagement ring – and assumes this will make Reggie’s life easier when/if he decides to pop the question.
What are your thoughts on this?
Moi? Personally, I love the fact that my fiance picked out my ring on his own. He definitely asked me over the years what kind of ring I would want, but I instead told him what I definitely would not want. I figured that telling him no yellow gold or three-stone rings would be a good starting point. There’s something special about a ring that your fiance picks out himself – for me, choosing the exact stone and ring myself would have taken out some of the excitement. I have friends who chose their own engagement rings, and I can completely understand doing this – it is a piece of jewelry you’ll wear for the rest of your life, so you should love it – but it’s not really my style. Long story short, I love my ring and I love that my fiance picked it out on his own.
I know I haven’t been posting frequently, so here’s an update on my life:
1- Still house-hunting. What an emotional rollercoaster. We must have looked at 30 houses by now.
2- Still in the interview process for that promotion I was telling you about. I was told that HR will be contacting me “about next steps.”
3- My friend’s wedding is this weekend! I’m super excited. It will be my first time ever being a bridesmaid. And after a long shoe hunt, I found a really cute pair that I’ll definitely be able to wear again. I will definitely be taking mental notes at this wedding for future reference.
Apologies for neglecting the blog. I think once the wedding planning officially begins (after we get a house), the blog will liven up A LOT.
