we're gettin' hitched!

that's right the mister finally gave in! *snicker* two weeks ago we took aubry on one last summer get-away to sacramento before the start of her fourth grade year. mike's cousin james and his wife carla were gracious enough to let us stay at their house for the weekend. sunday morning before heading out to old town sac i begged mike to let me go to my favorite antique mall as an early birthday present (in fact, my big two-seven is tomorrow!) to which he agreed. there i saw this cute little art deco ring which i "ooh'd and ahh'd" over while mike cooly told me he didn't care for it. unbeknownst to me he had carla distract me while he bought the ring. later that evening (8/7) he brought it out on a park bench after discussing things with aubry (she was ecstatic) and he didn't have to say anything, i just knew. so not much of a romantic story there but i thought it was sweet none-the-less. he said he was going to wait until my birthday until he realized i would notice the sum of money missing from our bank account. haha. smart boy, that one! so without further ado, the ring!



yay! i am so excited to be marrying my best friend and start a new chapter of our lives together. we haven't set a date yet, but i am aiming for 8/4/12 which will be my maternal grandparent's 67th wedding anniversary! so now here comes bridezilla. i am already scheming up some sort of 1950s rockabilly honky tonk meets tiki BBQ. i dunno how, but my daddy always told me: if there's a will, there's a way!


  1. that ring is incredible! so unique. and i love the nailpolish, too. do you happen to remember what brand it is?

  2. i do! it's nicole by OPI in brilliant idea with a basecoat of salley hansen's insta-dri in lickety-split lime. i would recommend using a clear coat base as this stained my nails green! i am an august baby so it's a perfect combo for a peridot green!
