Hope you enjoyed learning a little more about the mystery man yesterday. I sent the blog link to him. I wanted him to read it. I am not the sappy love song wife, so I tend not to let him know how much I REALLY do love him - so I thought this would be a good opportunity. He read it - here are his words:
Okay, I read it. You are the blog master. Thanks for the nice comments. I love you very much! Blog on. No, I don’t get it, but if it makes you happy, that’s cool.
See that is why I love him. BAH!!!!
In other news, Elle slipped off the couch this morning from the slippery blanket mixing with her slippery tights. BAM... she rocked her sweet little face on the glass coffee table. At first she stood there with an open mouth and nothing came out, and then I went into shock. Blood was gushing everywhere - all over the kitchen floor, me, her, the dog, etc... and I PANICKED. I called Eric and all I could get out was "Elle is hurt, blood is everywhere, I am scared, come home". Well... now I know how I will do in the midst of trauma, and the answer is HORRIBLE. Well I got it together and cleaned her up - cleaned up the dog - changed my clothes and got everyone calm (including myself). The bleeding stopped and there were not any visible cuts or horrible massive swelling, so we iced it up and applied tons of love. Eric didn't come home - he works about 45 minutes away and was facilitating a meeting
Happier news - I did it friends. I upgraded my old ring for a new one and I couldn't be happier. Eric and I got engaged in September 2003 - he worked so hard in college to get my ring and I loved it, but it truly was never really "me". I picked it out and I just wanted "something/anything" that wouldn't put a huge strain on E's pocketbook and honestly we were young and didn't have a CLUE. So we went with the middle ring. The two bands are from my wedding and are blessed - so there was NO doubt in my mind I was going to keep them in my new creation. I went to Vinciguerra's Jewelry (family owned business) here in St. Louis and created a new middle ring. Exceptional customer service, phenomenal prices, kick butt turn around times, and quality coming out the ears. I could NOT have asked for a better experience. I kept the Emerald cut diamond - just upgraded the size - I love the halo effect and this setting is more "cathedral" style. LOVE IT! See I told you I like diamonds. HAHAHA - for real I can't believe Eric let me do this... this is so unlike him. I am sure something is up his sleeve;)
Come on Friday Baby
