My life as a Mommy of 4 little boys

Tuesday, November 29, 2011


Mark and I have been together for about 9.5yrs now!  Here we are married and 4 kids later and we have never had rings.  We had Landon very early in our relationship and we were young and didn't have the extra money to spend on a ring.  And since then we just haven't prioritized it...there is always something else that we feel is more important to spend the money on, 99% of the time it's something for the kids.  

But lately, I guess mostly since Preston has been born, I've really been wanting a ring.  People say I still look really young, someone this weekend said she thought I was 17-18!!!  I'm 25.  And I have 4 kids and no ring on my finger.  Sure it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks but I do get that look.  I AM married, my kids are all from my husband, we have a wonderful relationship and love each other more and more every day....I want that ring on my finger to show I have someone.  

Also, Casen asked me a couple weeks back why we don't wear rings.  So even they have noticed which kinda bothers me for some reason.  

But money has been really tight, especially with Christmas right around the corner.  But on Black Friday we were talking about it and I decided to look at Zales and just see and they were actually having a huge sale too!!!!  So we decided to go for it.  It's our Christmas present to each other, probably the only thing we'll get each other, but I don't care.  Both of our rings were on sale BIG time plus we got another 10% off the total and free shipping!!  It really was an awesome deal!  We didn't get anything extravagant, but even if we had tons of money to blow I wouldn't want that, it's just not me.  I wanted something small and pretty and I'm really happy with what we found.  

My ring <3
And Mark's...he wanted something with some detail but not diamonds, he really likes how this looks so hopefully it looks nice in person too
They shipped today though!  I can't wait for them to arrive, really hope they fit without having to be resized and that we like them :)
