Minor detail from this past Saturday – Jamie took me to go look at wedding bands!
The jeweler he bought my engagement ring from (Diamonds Direct) is only a few miles from where we ate lunch on Saturday, so he suggested that we go and look. I wasn’t too crazy about the idea because I was starting to get really tired from such an early morning, but he insisted, and I’m so glad we did!
The store has an exact match for my band, and it looked absolutely incredible with my ring. I’m so excited about it! Jamie wants a very traditional band and is going back and forth between white gold and yellow gold. I’d say he has some time to think about it! I think we have right about 21.5 months to go. Everybody keeps saying “Oh don’t worry about it because it will fly!” and I’m thinking Have you heard exactly HOW long we have to wait? Blah!
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
