RobynEileen:  Thanks for starting us off again! Post pictures of the potential venue if you can.

Unlike you I am not impressed with the rain. We had such an unbelievably wet winter and I really need the ground to dry up so my horse can go on the summer fields (he has been waiting rather impatiently to get off the muddy patch for a few weeks now!) and so we can ride out more.

On the other hand, April should be fantastic. We’re going to Paris next weekend; OH still doesn’t have a clue (that I can tell, anyway), then I have a riding lesson which I’m really looking forward to the week after, and at the end of the month we’re off to Ireland where I think he might propose.

So I shall be staying quiet! I am going to do the penalty this month but may have to stop as money is tight with two trips away. 🙂

Hey y’all! I finally got the ring in! If you don’t  remember, this was the rendering.

I’m a little dissapointed it isn’t blacker but the stones are super sparkly! He prefers the lighter sapphires even though I like the brighter blue ones. This was the inspo for the ring 

This is the one he said he really liked. My reason for not buying that one was that it was “black gold” and would constantly need to be redipped. So I went with black zirconium! I’ll try to add some better pictures when I get back home.

Final specs: 9mm, 11.25 ring size, six 3×3 mm sapphires. Flat profile with a beveled edge (polished), and a center satin finish.

sequinhat: I know it’s not jet black but I really like it, there’s something about the harsh gunmetal against the sparkly stones. I’m sure he’ll love it.

RobynEileen:  I might have to have a destination wedding afterall, that is absolutely beautiful.

I think OH has bought the ring. I asked for his wallet earlier (I needed a slip to pick up some trousers he had altered) and was told I couldn’t have it because there were receipts in there for things he’d bought me a long time ago. The way he said it made out that he started saying it without realising what he was saying and I’m sure he’s cleaned his receipts out at least once since January.

RobynEileen:  the wind here in Philadelphia is super crazy as well! I went to BF’s flag football game this morning and I was freezing! What is the place called?

Here are some pictures i took with my DSLR. There is definitely some variety in the color of the sapphires even though they’re all supposed to be the same. I hope he’ll just this it adds character!

RobynEileen:  yikes! i hate when the bugs come out 🙁 We went to the park with plenty of fly things everywhere (flies, bes, wasps, other…) and I was completely freaked out. Especially when this HUGE wasp started following me. I told him it was time to leave. Time to put away the perfumes for the summer!
