I don't know about y'all, but it's a monsoon where I live. This past weekend was mucho fun. Friday night LC and I went out with friends. I drank and danced the night away. Evidently, my shopping habit has become a bit obsessive. LC said I was requesting free shipping in my sleep. Ha!
Saturday, me and two of my besties went to a Derby party at the Dixon Art Gallery. Although, one of my besties' boyfriend was at the actual Derby and bet on #5 for her. #5 didn't win, but Mind That Bird did. Oh well. We sipped on mint juleps and mingled around in our big hats. Good thing we wore those big hats b/c they served as umbrellas to ward off the rain. We then went to another Derby party. It was in midtown at one of those "old" money homes. Absolutely beautiful. Typical round table as you entered the foyer, painted portraits, Queen Anne styled furniture, and the typical taxidermist stuffed animals on the wall. Needless to say, we looked down, and were standing on an actual zebra, well a rug that once upon a time was a live zebra. Evidently, Katy Perry's manager had brought her by the party before we got there. Darn, I like her music and would have LOVED to meet her. It was tres fun.
Okay, now to the point of what you're really curious about. Yes, I turned down a Tacori engagement ring but for good reasons. LC's brother was engaged some years back. He had purchased this beautiful ring. He still has the ring. Every girl dreams of a Tacori or a high end ring. LC spotted me glancing at the rings at Costco. Not that I'd want a ring from Costco, but I was just browsing ladies and had no idea that he'd caught me. He was like I saw you looking at those rings. I was replied that nothing is wrong with looking. Then, he told me that I should try one on to see what size I am. Then, the subject of his brother's Tacori ring came up, and he mentioned that his brother would probably give him a good deal on it if I wanted it. He then asked if it would be bad luck to buy his brother's ring. I told him I think luck is what you make of it, and what girl wouldn't just LOVE a Tacori ring!?!?!?!?! Well, yesterday, he had me try on the ring. It was really absolutely beautiful. I mean I loved having about 25k dangling on my little finger. However, I just couldn't get the thought that this was ANOTHER woman's ring. So, I said I didn't like it. I want MY own ring. It doesn't have to be Tacori b/c quite frankly LC is not rich enough for that. I will just be happy to be married to him regardless of what the ring is. I mean I don't want a speck of a diamond, but you know what I mean;)
