My day  

This:


Led to this:


Which, in August 2005, will lead to this:

(That's my ring, which we've put a payment or two on. I get to visit it at Disneyland occasionally...)


For the story on how it happened, go here.



So how was your weekend?

Congratulations! :)

They're both very snazzy looking rings. I didn't know Disneyland made jewelry but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Sort of
Thanks!

Disneyland themselves doesn't do jewelry -- they offered a jeweler from San Francisco space in New Orleans Square, so now that jeweler has a branch in DL. They mostly do consignment jewelry, with pieces dating back 200 years or so, but this one was actually created by their jeweler for the sake of having more men's rings on display, as they generally don't get many in.

The ring very much called to me, too. I walked in with some friends who were looking for something for them (I wasn't really looking yet), went straight to the display it was in, and my eyes went straight to this ring. I asked to look at it, and it fit perfectly.

It was a very similar story when we found Jen's ring, too. I just noticed how difficult it is in this picture to see that the non-diamonds on her ring (can't think of the jewel right now) are a deep and sparkly blue. Oh well. We'll get better pics of it later - there's time. :-)

I know how you feel.

Thanks!
BTW, notice the dates on my post - August 2005. I'll be 28 years old.

In case you hadn't put that together yet... =)

woohoo!!!

Yes, but do I owe you $5?
Idtechnomonkey on March 10th, 2004 02:07 am (UTC)
D'oh!
I knew I'd forgotten something!

And the worst part is, the way that I did it, we were joking around, laughing, and it actually would have been appropriate. (She didn't realize it was the actual proposal until the ring was unwrapped from the ribbon it was in)

*sigh*

Well, maybe I'll find a way to fit it in the wedding vows....

Should I worry...
Do I need to worry about you?
Idtechnomonkey on October 29th, 2005 05:18 pm (UTC)
D'oh again!
Forgot to fit it into the vows! Dang it!
