    Yeahhh!! We finally ordered our wedding bands, I am having my wedding band made to match my ring. I was not liking anything with my e-ring. My e-ring has a beautiful (quality) round solitaire diamond, and a very small thin gold band. When you look at my ring, you don't notice the band, just the diamond. I was having a difficult time with the wedding band because everything looked awkward with it. The circle of the band is more oval shaped and all the bands we were finding were round shaped. The other problems was I wanted a semi eternity band with 11 diamonds, all the diamonds in the bands we were finding looked dull next to my diamond, solution, we went searching for the diamonds instead of the ring. We finally found the perfect diamonds, and a wonderful jeweller. He is creating the band to fit perfectly with my ring, and making the partial eternity ring I desire, I am getting my 11 diamonds, it is going to be sooo pretty (gulp, I hope). Spent more than I had planned, but as Everton says it is the one piece of jewellery I will have and wear forever, so let's get the perfect ring, not the almost perfect ring. We also ordered Evertons ring, not much to say, looks like every other guys ring really light yellow gold with a white gold strip in the middle with a petina efect on the outer edges. It is a very classic heavy band.

    While at the jewellers I fell in love with this beautiful necklace, that would be perfect for my wedding dress, really simple but delicatly beautiful. Well I looked at the price and just about fell over, $600.00, way to rich for a mom of 5. Well last night after I put Liam to bed, Everton came in from the gym (he was looking hot, all muscular and sweaty), told me he had stopped to get a treat for me and handed me a steeped tea and a Tim Hortons (Coffee shop in Canadian) bag, well as you have probably guessed, I opened it up to find my perfect necklace, and the matching earings, I was shocked!! Everton told me he didn't know anyone who deserved something more than I did, he said that I was the best mom, who took care of everybody so beautifully, and has worked so hard especially since Nicole got sick. He said he wants me to feel like a princess on our wedding day, and that from the moment I tried on the necklace in the jewellery store he knew that this necklace was mine. Well I'm not a gusher, but I have to tell you girls, this was a better moment than when he gave me my engagement ring. This was so wonderfully unexpected, and heartfelt, I felt truly appreciated, what a nice feeling.

    Oh yeah the jeweller had to take my engagement ring, to fit my band to it, I keep panicing thinking I have lost it, can't wait to get it back!!

              I have given Kenda till the end of the weekend to find the cord, she has to look at her dads she thinks she left it there. I will then hopefully figure out how to post my pictures, I have the necklace, my wedding dress is in, my oot bags are done, my travel mugs are here, I have my table setting, and I bought my shoes. I will have so much to post, so you will get it all at once. Thank god things are coming together.

                Funny hehehe JaimeLynn had no idea what Tim Hortons was, imagine a world without our Timmy's, how would we Canadians ever be able to function, ehh!!

                    omg, that was so sweet of him. What a great man you've got. :) Hopefully you get the USB cord back soon so we can see pictures (or is there a website link you can send us to... come on, we're desperate! lol).

                    And yes, any true Canadian cannot live without their Tim Hortons. Every other part of the world is missing out! lol. But... was there any actual Timmies IN the Timmies bag?! That's just a tease lol
