this was formerly my grandmother's ring. each of the granddaughters got one of her rings after she passed. unfortunately, whenever grandma got a ring, it was usually a size too small...and they had to be cut off of her finger!! apparently she had a hard time learning her lesson, because most of the rings were cut! anyhoo, hubs had it made into a necklace for me!! they did such a great job, and even used some of the gold and diamonds from the original ring. way to go hubs...it'll be hard to top this!
onto the little monkey's birthday!! he was so excited ALL DAY! he played hard with his cousins and his gifts! it was a great day!
have you ever seen a more bad-ass two year old?!
"i'm supposed to do WHAT in THERE?"
after my last post last week, emily's fever came back! that poor kid missed the WHOLE WEEK of school! it threw us all off...what routine? what schedule? i was a mess by friday! she was diagnosed with strep throat! she is happily off to school again this morning. i gotta say, i miss her already...but at the same time, i'm relieved that we can get back to normal! i'm taking david to my mom's house this morning, and my sissy and i are heading to the mall to get some wedding "undergarments"...you know...SPANX!(or something along those lines!)
i hope you all have a fabulous week!
oh, and P.S. i did not finish david's blanket :o( thank goodness he's too young to know that mommy blew it! i was attempting to finish it on saturday night, but ended up getting a migraine that lasted into sunday morning. i should be able to finish it tonight! sheesh, last week was really screwed up! *note to self* finish projects a week in advance in case of unforeseen illness--that lasts more than a week!!
