Hi bees! I’ve been a “lurker” on here for at least 6 months, so I kind of feel like I already know some of you, haha!
My fiance and I have been together for 2 years and we met each other through mutual friends 3 years ago. When we met, he was in the process of divorcing his first wife of 7.5 years and it was finalized well before we started our relationship. He made it clear to everyone that if he ever got married again, she would have to be “really damn special”. I guess I must be really damn special, then!
Anyway, to make a long story short, he proposed to me last Saturday (2/18/12) at a blues concert we went to with my dad. He asked my dad for his blessing and next thing I know, my boyfriend was on stage down on one knee, asking me to be his wife. I walked off the stage to a roar of applause and cheers, a happy, newly engaged woman! To be honest, I don’t even want to bother with planning a wedding. All of this stuff makes my head spin like Linda Blair when she played Reagan in The Exorcist. I just want to marry the love of my life,
Here is my beautiful, perfect ring! He did an incredible job… as I was expecting him to. He has excellent taste in jewelry. 🙂 My apologies if the pictures are too large or if there are too many. I couldn’t pick just 2 or 3! These are all taken with my phone.

Thank you all so much for your compliments! I am totally ln love with my ring!
@melisslp: I don’t know, haha! I always get people asking me about my nails and sometimes I wonder if it’s because of how much milk I drink. I drink A LOT of whole milk and I go through a gallon every 2-3 days! I never bite them, I keep them trimmed and I use nail clippers and a file. That’s about all I can think of. I don’t do anything special. I’ve never even had a professional manicure.
@lady-daisy: I love the side, too! I love the diamonds, but the setting is what makes the ring for me.
@Sparkle030: Yes, either July or August… haven’t quite decided yet.
@Fallicious1012: Thanks! I have definitely noticed that five stones aren’t the norm around here. Us five stone girls have to stick together, haha!
