My Something Blue

Q: So what was better than my man coming home from Las Vegas in one piece?


A: My man coming home from Las Vegas in one piece...with a present!!

I have to admit that M and I don't have many secrets, I'm honestly having a hard time thinking of one...except for the occasional shopping trip I go on without his knowledge! And I eventually cave on those too! He tells me when girls hit on him, he tells me when he goes number 2 (gross I know) and he can't ever seem to hide a gift from me. But I really thought he wouldn't spill the beans on this one...

I have been hinting very lightly since we got engaged that I wanted my gift from him to be my Something Blue and I wanted it to be in a ring form...and made by the wonderful David Yurman. That's not asking too much is it (haha)?! I pointed to it in magazines, I talked about it everytime we passed a jewelry store, and even sent him a picture of it so he would see exactly how pretty it was! I had a feeling he might have picked up on the hint, but he then started asking me about how I felt about pearls and my dream was crushed. I got over it and started looking for my own Something Blue with no luck.


Fast-forward to the present: Last night I went to pick M up at the airport. He had been gone for 4 whole days and it was the longest we had been apart, ever. It's safe to say I was missing him hard core! We spent about an hour looking through the pictures that he took with his camera and phone and laughed at some of the silly happenings of his friends and the Groom to be, that's a post all in itself I'm sure! After we had gone through all the photos, M let me know that he got me a small present. As I closed my eyes I pictured Vegas t-shirts, statuettes of the Eiffel Tower casino, and all the cheesy presents you get when your loved one travels.


I opened them and saw this lovely thing staring back at me in a pretty lil Saks box:

I gasped, I squealed, I was surprised! He just couldn't hold it in! My eyes got as big as saucers and I immediately put it on! I have a bad habit of wanting to wear my wedding band around so he knew this would be no different! Apparently he walked all the way down to Saks on his last day there and even inspired one of the guys on the trip to propose to his current gf! But he has tucked it away in a hiding spot I know nothing about and it will come back to me in 2 months exactly, on our wedding day as a combination of my Something Blue and his gift to me!

I think I was more excited about this than ANY of my shower presents and it might rank right up there with how much I love my dress! Did any of you receive a present that was supposed to be a secret? Also what are you guys wanting for your Something Blue?

Did you all look in Bellevue? We're checking out some new Beazer homes in that area today. But you're definitely right about the new construction! Last weekend I told the saleslady that she better get building if you want new homeowners taking advantage of the tax credit. otherwise, we'll go somewhere that's already finished. It's sad, but true!
