Criag and I have been discussing rings over the past month. Well today my Mom happened to be going to Borsheims, Omaha's best jewelry store, to re-size her diamond. I had mentioned this to Craig and he told me to go ahead and pick some rings out and take some pictures so he would have a good idea if I found one that I liked. That is exactly what I did! I was a little overwhelmed with the selection, but surprised myself by narrowing down my selection to just two.The pictures are not the best of quality, but you can kind of get an idea of my choices. Once I choose these two styles, she went ahead and emailed me these pics along with prices and my ring size, and we forwarded the email to Craig as well...makes this real easy for him, hint hint :) I really like the thicker band for some reason. The first pic I would get a band with it and the second ring I was told would not need a band because of its size. Now, when it comes to diamond size I know I want to start out at 1 carrot, but I am leaving the size of the diamond up to Craig depending on how much he wants to spend. I am happy with whatever he chooses :)

Going to Borshiems today with my Mom was a little surreal. Two years ago, I would have never imagined myself looking at wedding rings. Things just happen so fast, and I could never be happier. It is amazing how I prayed for so long to find a soul mate, and out of the blue Craig comes along and we just click. It is proof that God does exist and there is someone out there for everyone.

I branched out a little for lunch today. Instead of eating my usual lunch meat or chicken with veggies and pita bread, I made some fresh fish. I tend to eat fish at night, well last night I thought I might as well make twice as much for my lunch today. The fish I had was Swai. It is pretty lean, 4oz only 80 cals. Which means I can eat twice as much of it!

Along side my fish and veggies I had a bagel thin with jelly and 2 Laughing Cow wedges to top it with. This was the perfect lunch, filled me up quite a bit!

Yesterday I had a stellar 4 mile run on the TM and today I did Insanity Pure Cardio. Not going to lie, the video kicked my rear once again. I think a little too much, I was pretty in and out of fatigue all day long. Looking forward to some easy, light cardio tomorrow.

How close are you and your Mom?

My Mom is like my best friend, we do everything together...during the summer we get together at least 3 times a week and during the School year we meet every Friday for coffee to vent about our week as teachers.

How difficult was it for you to pick out a ring? Did you do it with your significant other or did he surprise you?

I was glad when Craig said he wanted to look at rings together, I just think he would have been to overwhelmed with the selection and where to start.


  1. I've never gone ring shopping or even browsed yet...hopefully in the near future though, as I've been dating my BF for nearly 5 years! :)

    I'm very close with my mom as well, she's so wise and I love learning from her.

  2. aww the rings are so pretty! I want my boyfriend to surprise me, i think...but then again, I don't know how great of a job he would do at picking a ring out :)

    My mom is like my best friend too. We always go shopping together and talk for hours on the phone, I can tell her anything!

  3. I think I've been to that jewelry store!

    My husband and I did not discuss rings at all before we got engaged. He picked out my engagement ring by himself.
