  23. 600! Way to go! I'm a follower now. So glad I found your blog.

    Well my boyfriend and I went to the jewelry store on Monday to look at engagements rings and to give him some ideas. (Bless his heart, he has ZERO taste and he knows it!) We ended up falling in love with this one ring, so he bought it! The problem is he's making me wait. He wants the proposal to be "special." I love that he's wants to make it special but I WANT MY SHINY, NEW RING. :) So, I'm looking forward to getting engaged and gaining a ring..I mean fiance. :)
