so i just learned that Wedding Wednesday is a thing. which is fantastic. and also gave me the reminder that i needed to post part two of the story of our wedding. [you can find part one: the engagement here] part two is full of sparkle and selfies; the ring.
i couldn’t be happier with my ring. and yes, i did pick it out. [b] and i looked online a little, and i went once with my dear friend lys to try some on once just to get an idea. i truly had no idea what i wanted. ok maybe a little, i wanted sterling silver, and modern vintage, unique without being odd, and classy sassy. it’s hard because the diamond store websites don’t let me select those as filter options. so when [b] was in china last year my momma and i went to jared and after some searching i had narrowed it down to 2 rings, i had one that was the front runner, but i wanted [b] to feel like he got some say. :) (#hewenttojared)
now, if you give a girl a ring, she’s going to want to show people. but if you give a social media diva a ring, she’s going to want to take selfies and call them #blingshots. and they’re going to be, wait for it, awesome. it’s exciting and crazy to have a ring on your ring finger and you just might find yourself doing some things you have not done before, suchas: because it’s so shiny you kind of just want to stare at it while it sparkles. and request that others join in. and making sure that when you’re in photos your #blingshot is showing in all its glory. and when you take #bouface selfies you suddenly only can use your left hand to hold your bou in the photo. and your friends may call you out on “accidental” #blingshots, or even request them. being engaged is funny like that.
in case you were wondering, which of course you were, it’s 325 days until the wedding! i know, right? so much excitement and many things to share with you on upcoming Wedding Wednesdays [and maybe some other days, too.] toodles!
