My family is pretty great. I have a cousin, Kelli...who I don't even have a picture of, which makes me a little mad, who is awesome!!! Last summer she started running. I can't remember how it all went down, but I basically picked the Rock n Roll San Antonio race last November so I could visit her (she's a Texas gal) and run a race with her! She ran her first half marathon and did amazing!! She's still running and I'm hoping she'll do the Rock n Roll Las Vegas this year! So fun.
Yesterday I went to the mailbox and found a little package...addressed to me from Kelli! I was so excited. Popped it open and inside was the cutest little package!
And inside this cute little tin was this...
The cutest necklace ever!!! My camera was giving me grief so it might be a little hard to tell...but on the small copper circle it says '314.4' which is 26.2 miles x 12 marathons!!! Awesome. And then on the outer silver circle it says 'TWELVE IN TWELVE'. So awesome. I immediately put it on....
I know. Goofball pic. Haven't mastered the art of taking self-portraits. ; ) Anyways, I LOVE, love, LOVE, love it! Thank you sooo much Kelli! So thoughtful!
In other jewelry news... I was sitting on my couch today and when I got up, I saw something sparkling at me on the cushion. I picked it up thinking it was one of my girls play jewelry. When I looked closer I thought, hmmm, that looks familiar. I then looked at my wedding ring and sure enough, the diamond had fallen out!!!!
How lucky am I that I actually saw it when it fell out!!! So now I'm bandless and I have the ugliest indentation where my ring has sat for 16 years.
So we have 3 options....
(1) Repair, put diamond back in existing ring.
(2) Get a whole new ring. Good grief, 16 years, I can splurge on a new ring, right?
(3) Take $$$ I would spend on new ring and have a getaway to here...
Just got the email this afternoon. I think it's a sign.
Ever lost your wedding ring??? Or the diamond out of it???
I'm thinking of downsizing to a simple band. Have you upgraded or downgraded from your OG wedding ring?
