Re: My engagement ring upsets me. Please Help

There are so many ways to go with this, and it's really easy to be opinionated about someone *else's love life and relationships. you mentioned that you would have been happy with a plain band... this is what I would do, at this point: I would be honest and tell him that I wasn't happy with the chan...

Re: Be honest..do you exceed the speed limit...

I go 0-5 over the speed limit. *Maybe 10 if there is no one around. Only more than that if I'm passing and that's rare. My friends call me a granny driver. I believe those limits are there for a REASON!

Re: When did you know your man was a keeper?

I think my story is irrelevant here. My husband and I only dated for 9 months before we decided to get married (but I'd known him since I was 5 and married him at 21). I will say though, in your 30's, that whether you're actually discussing whether you will or won't get married etc., it's a great id...

Re: Would you want your dh to remarry if you were gone?

If I were gone, I'd want my husband to be happy - and if that meant marrying again, then that is what I would want for him. No one will ever take my place, but I'm sure his heart would have room for another.

Re: Big purse, small purse, or no purse? What do you carry?

Depends on the situation... most days NO purse because I have a backpack full of books and I just tuck my wallet and keys in it (or you could call it a very LARGE purse haha). Mostly I would say small purse because I just need a strap to tuck my wallet and keys in. Occasionally there is need for som...

Re: Can you get yourself to wear fake diamonds?

I guess I'm in the minority - I don't care one way or the other for the most part.

Re: Parents with 2+ kids, do you have a favorite?

I have 3 children and each of them are my favorite in different ways. I definitely have favorites - but each of them has their own area. My daughter is a girl, she's my favorite in that way. First boy is like me, so he's my favorite in that way. Second boy is just like my husband and he's the *baby,...

Re: How do you refer to your non-blood relatives?

Totally depends on the situation. I guess more, "My husband's aunt" because I usually want to be specific. There is a huge difference between my father and my husband's father so just referring to them both as Dad would need further explanation most of the time.

Re: Do you own a second home?

I put other because we don't have a "2nd home" like that just sits empty until we want to go on vacation, but we do own 2 other houses besides the one we own and they are rented out. I put "other" and I explained :)

Thank you DS! So you think the center should be over a carat? My 20th anniversary ring has 1/3 carat stones and I do think they're small, but I don't have anything in the 1 carat range. Is XYZ the sweet spot for size and color? When approaching the "petals" I could either choose a number a...

For my 25th anniversary, I am planning to have a pendant made. I currently do not have a pendant but I know (roughly) that I want one that looks like a daisy.

Light Guru Question + Diagem

It's pretty common knowledge that a well cut diamond doesn't require light from any source but above. In fact, enclosing the pavilions on some of these diamonds can focus their brilliance, in my opinion. It's also known that light escapes out the pavilion on poorly cut diamonds, so putting those in ...

Re: Poll: Do you like Kate's new official portrait?

It looks like she was lost 15 years ago and they're trying to age her so we'd know what she looks like now. Or I could say - that's what she'll look like when she's much older and the queen.... but it's not at all flattering for what she looks like now.
