Re: Please Talk to Me About Your Sofa

I love our family room sofa, it is a sectional from Macy's in a olive-brown microfiber. It is by far the most comfortable surface in our house, and I'd rather nap on the sofa than go to my room. The color is also great if you have young kids, dirt does not show, and the multi-directional quality of ...

Re: A kid question

I would make it YOUR personal policy as a teacher, and tell the student to turn off his phone during lessons. My kids are 14 and 12. Their school policy does not allow them to use their phones on during the school day. If they are caught using their phone during class, the teacher has the right to c...

Re: Miracle workers - jumbo backs. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

I also had to get jumbo backs when I got my small .85 tcw studs from BGD a couple years ago, but now I can't NOT wear wear them. I use the jumbo backs for every pair of earrings I own because they make my earings look much better, and my earlobes less droopy. I have droppy lobes and stretched out ho...

Re: How often do you wear your ring?

I wear my wedding set, plus anniversary ring stacked, pretty much 24/7. However, my rings get a bath when I jump in the shower. So, when I get washed, my rings get washed too. They are soaked in commercial jewelry cleaner and scrubbed with mini brush. I even wear them in the gym, I do worry that I'l...

Re: Are you faithful when you dream?

No I am not faithful when I dream, and I wake up feeling super guilty. They odd thing is that I have dreams about doing stuff with people I'm not even attracted to, at least not consciously attracted to.

Re: Largest ct size for daily wear?

I wear a 1.8 ct RB solitaire, and feel that this is perfect for daily wear. I never feel self conscious about its size, because it is the norm in my social circle to have between a 1-2 carat. I also have it set fairly low, so I never knock it into anything. I'm not the type of person who likes to st...

Re: My ring get so tight during the summer ...

I have big knuckles, so my rings are sized 5.25 or 5.5 to accommodate my knuckle size.

As long as I don't take them on and off too often to clean etc, ...

Re: How do you feel about what you do for a living?

I'm ambivalent about my job. I work for a global company in the food and beverage industry. Some days I feel like just another cog in the wheel, other days I feel I contributed a ton to the expansion of the brand. Mostly the work is just so so, but I like the employee perks, so I gave it a 7.

I definitely did not find it disgusting, I just thought it was natural.

I was squeamish with young babies, afraid they would slip out of my arms, so and the bathing r...

Re: New to PS with 2 gorgeous OEC rings from JbG and CvB!

Welcome! Both your rings are beautiful. I have been bitten by the Old Cut bug as well....still shopping though.

Do you alternate and wear each by itself, or is one of these a "e-ring" the other a Right-hand ring?
