It’s kind of early in the day for this, but I got my present at midnight. I was really surprised and excited since we usually don’t make a big deal out of V-day or exchange elaborate gifts. I had said in passing who knows how long ago that I would like a pink sapphire RHR and he actually picked one on his own, which I thought was sweet. lol I think he just took the style of my ering and tried to get as close as possible (should I “stack” them? 😉 so I would for sure like it, which I do. He can be kind of hit or miss when it comes to buying jewelry without any input (not to sound mean/bratty) but this one really made me smile because it meant he’d paid attention to my past blatherings and kept a mental note…and that means a lot to me.
I can’t speak to Shane Co.’s customer service (in case anyone here is considering them/wondering) but the ring is very pretty. Even though I had mentioned a pink sapphire, he chose their “Kentucky blue” which kind of reminds me of a Ceylon sapphire in color. It’s a surprisingly lively/sparkly little stone. The heart shape was a nice touch for Valentine’s Day.
Feel free to share your Vday jewelry (or flowers!) here, too. 🙂

@starla: What a gorgeous ring! Look at the fire coming from the stone.
Here’s my VDay gift. I thought he was saving this for our wedding day although you will hear no complaints from me.

Wow! What a gorgeous ring! That shade of blue’s amazing.
Moissy band – I was really excited about this because I’d wanted a blingy band for a really long time.

Beautiful gifts ladies!
Mine knew he was not supposed to get me anything for Valentine’s but this morning (he gets up earlier than me) I found he had left me a gift bag that said “open me now!” and has some VERY sexy lingerie, sexier than anything I’ve ever had before… oh my!!!!
I also notice evidence of detailed man-grooming having happened in the bathroom, so…. I guess this post is s bit TMI!

@starla: LOL I thought for a second I was colorblind and then I saw that you said it was blue (and not pink) and I was like “oh good I’m not crazy” lol

@HelloCarly: That’s beautiful! Is it a morganite?
@asianyoushi: Very pretty roses. I can’t really tell, but are those crystals on them?
@joya_aspera: lol…sounds like Mr. Aspera wants things to get pretty crazy tonight 😉
@SunflowerGarden: Thank you!
@RenoSweeney24: i probably should’ve smashed a few crystal vases, cried about how he doesn’t love me, and freaked out that the ring wasn’t exactly what I asked for! Lol. Just kidding, obviously. He said I had a lot of pink stuff and wanted to get me something different. I’m not usually a blue person but I really like it!

I stayed up all night making FI a tie for Valentine’s and was so excited, I couldn’t wait until we celebrate on Saturday, so I asked if he could stop by my place on his way to work. I opened his car door and he says, “So, before you sit down, will you be the rampaging monster of my heart?” I’m kinda confused, but we’re strange like that, so I I say, “Of course!” He lifts up his jacket and there’s Rampage. It’s a board game where you play as a giant monster and your goal is to tear up the city. I’m excited to play it.

@HonoraryNerd: Nice…I love Rampage for Nintendo but was not aware there was a board game. What a fun gift!
