I know I said I wouldn’t be back on the boards after my last post about getting a nasty PM but I think what happened worked in my favor! (By the way, just read all the nice responses from everyone…thank you!)
Today I was out shopping with my husband and right before we left the mall, he said he wanted to look in Zales to just see how much solitaires were. First of all, I was shocked that he said this. He NEVER wants to look at jewelry. The engagement ring I received was a family ring (and one of two choices – the other associated with a divorce so didn’t want that negative energy). I did receive a couple of anniversary bands this year but that was due to a really good deal on rubylane (about $100) and one that I had taken diamonds out of a necklace my mom had received from a friend and made into a ring. While I love my original e-ring, it does get tight from time to time b/c it’s wide and my fingers can swell alot and honestly…I’ve always wanted a simple, round, classic solitaire. Sooo…to make a long story short…he said that when I go back to work (I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom mom now), I can get a ring (upgrade) to about a 1.5! I’m SHOCKED! I know I won’t be getting a great quality diamond b/c I don’t plan to spend that much but honestly…I just really want a bigger ring b/c I just love more bling on my hand and most of all…this will be a ring we get together! And, next year is our 10th anniversary. So…I just had to share. I had told him about the nasty PM I was sent and how I shouldn’t even be on these boards and I think he felt bad. Yay!
Thanks ladies for being so sweet on here! I’m just so excited! And now I have tons of time to research what I want! 🙂 Keeping my fingers crossed I get a job next school year! (I’m a school counselor and our son will be starting kindergarten so that means back to work for me!) 🙂
Happy New Year!!!
