I’ve been a long time reader, but I don’t post very often. I just wanted to share my very exciting news, since it’s still a secret from the “general public.” 😉
Last week, Mr. Fishy and I finalized my beautiful custom designed engagement ring. Ordered and deposit placed! The lovely jeweler kept showing us different diamonds to compare, and I told her I felt like I was at the optometrist- is this one clearer… OR….this one? Anyways, we picked a stone, picked a metal (he was set on platinum, and I did not protest), and I got a bit tipsy on the champagne they gave us.
AND yesterday we got the draft of the custom design. I really loved one setting we saw in the jewelery store, and another I had seen online. So the designer agreed to fuse the 2 together, and here she is folks:
I am so beyond excited!!!! It’s perfect. In every way. It’s so me, and it’s exactly what I envisioned and couldn’t find anywhere. And the sweetest thing is that HE loves it too. When we saw the photo, before I even said anything, he was just like “Oh yay. Yay. It’s so beautiful. It’s perfect!”
It’s been SO HARD to not tell every person I know (and you know, every person I meet) so I thought it might help to share my excitement here. Now if I could just think of a good response for all the inevitable “when are you guys getting engaged?!?” questions I know we will be hearing over Christmas. . .

Thank you Bees very much!!!
The jeweler, or “Ring Lady” as we’ve been calling her, said that both she and the designer really loved the custom fusion. I said they could start making it and name it after me
And I promise to post so many pics when it comes in. They said at least 6-8 weeks, and we have said that we’d like to be able to tell people on St. Patrick’s day (they are SERIOUSLY Irish, it’s like bigger than Christmas with them) so hooray! Yesterday he said he wished we could do it in time for Christmas, but I’m planning to enjoy the anticipation. Does anyone watch HIMYM? Remember the girl Victoria, who said she loved the “drumroll” leading up to a kiss the best? I’m just going to love up this drumroll! <3
