Thanks! I've laid down the rules...I won't try mermaid or sheath dresses on and no dresses with bows on the bum. I don't want to look like one of Cinderella's step sisters I told her I would try on anything else-even if she liked it and I didn't. I'm hoping that will ease things up a bit. She's been great so far about the whole thing. We will see!

Pic Test! The Ring

Ok so I have to tell you...Trying to get a pic of my ring was a bit difficult. I messed with the setting on my camera, lighting, the works...and this was the best I could get! I love it!

Thanks!
We would battle back and forth about the side stones...I wanted them, he didn't. Then I wanted the surprise setting-where there is a small diamond on it's side under the engagement stone. He didn't like it but chose it anyway when he found one at the site that we got the diamond from. BUT THEN I didn't like it! BUT loved this. It still amazes me that it is on my finger!

Our First Gift!

This whole experience has been so laid back...I love it. We've been engaged for 1 week and 1 day. My parents came over and gave us our first engagement gift! It's a frame with the word love at the top and an inscription that has our engagement date on it. I love it and was not expecting it. (I'll post pictures of that later-I'm sleepy)
Life here has been really busy. I have 2 weeks left in my internship-and I can't wait for it to be over with! We talked to DF's family today and they all said they had cards for us that didn't make it in the mail yet. All I could tell them was that it was ok b/c I hadn't made phone calls to extended family yet. I posted it on facebook-figured it would be easier that way...Everyone knows I'm super swamped with work. This has made some people mad-but they will have to get over it! Besides, I'm enjoying looking at my ring and still in shock that it's all mine!
I asked DF's sister today if she was ready to go to Disney and she was cool with it. That made my day! I was afraid she wouldn't be thrilled with the idea. I think the fact that we are looking at 2010 for a date helped. She knows she has time to save. We need the time to save too b/c we are doing a 3 day DCL with my parents in Feb 2009.

Ok I'll post that pic soon...Need sleep!

I'm looking forward to writing this and I'm glad I've got a place to jot my thoughts down from the beginning.

First Engagement Gift

So, here it is...Our first engagement gift.


According to my mom, my dad was very particular about this. He wanted November spelled out! Even though my mom had suggested just having the date written 11/19/2008-My father insisted that it was written out. So, they did. I have no clue what this little token cost...but according to my mom my dad was shocked! Considering they got it a Things Remembered...and they charge something silly like 20-30 cents/letter-or something like that...My dad was a bit speechless-but let them do it anyway.(He could have told them to change it to 11/19/2008 before engraving it) I was very touched by the gesture...and a little shocked that he parted with the $

Thank goodness that he is ok with parting with the $ for the wedding!!!
