All That Glitters

I can't believe it has been almost 9 months since Tyler made me the happiest girl on the planet, & only 5 more unil I get to steal his name & call him mine for FOREVER! Mwhahaha
While I would like to pretend that I wasn't that girl not-so-subtly Pinning my dream rings (like he even gets on to Pinterest), leaving my rings around so he would know what size I was (not that he even knew that rings came in sizes) & making sure my nails were in tip-top-ring-ready shape at all times. I can't even keep up that jig for 1 second, I  totally was. 
And you know what, Ty still managed to completely surprise me, picking out THE perfect ring all on his own, & popped the BIG question on the day that my nails were in the worst state! But it was still perfect. And after 9 months of telling "our" story, I still couldn't have imagined it any differently & I have yet to take off my ring yet (is that weird!?)

So to all my readers who have asked Santa for an engagement for Christmas…. just breathe! Give him the chance to surprise you...
… and maybe hedge your bets by setting his home screen to Shane Co.! Tyler was so sweet to pick out my ring from Shane Co., because he said they had the personalized service of your hometown jewelers, with designer looks not sold anywhere else & a lifetime guarantee that cannot be beat, but also had locations in places that we have talked about living in the future. Oh & they had cookies too!

Funny story, when we went in to resize my ring (I have teeny fingers!), Ty had been there many times, but it was my 1st. He immediately ditched me, making a bee line for the plate of cookies. I was looking around so confused, but the shop girls thought it was the best thing ever. True love!
And for all you ladies celebrating your engaged friends this holiday season, Shane Co. has all the gifts they will adore too! (I love the Capri Necklace that is available exclusively from Shane Co. & can be personalized with her initials or favorite saying!)
Are you dreaming of an engaged Christmas? Wishes of sugarplums & your man dropping to one knee under the mistletoe? Maybe a ring when the clock counts down to midnight?
(remember… just breathe!)
