China Redux

When picking out our fine china for the registry, I consulted the mister as he would have to look at the frou frou service for years, same as I. We really like the “Imperial Blossom” pattern from Mikasa.China1

Aren’t they so cute?  I bought them from etsy seller “trystbykerry“.  She has a beautiful website as well and I love all her jewelry.  She even made me a pair of these with a black rose.  What a great find.  Please go visit her shop.  You’ll love it.

My lovely friends, Kelly (Matron of Honor) and Kim (House Party) along with the help of my beautiful mother, threw me the best Bridal Shower this past Saturday.  Everything was so gorgeous, especially the food!  I saw friends whom I hadn’t seen in years and got to know my future MIL even better.  I was overwhelmed by the generosity of my guests and I had a wonderful time.  Here are some highlights of the afternoon:

These are only supposed to be for my Mister’s eyes but everyone is doing boudoir pics and posting them so why not me? I love they way they turned out and I want to do more after I’m a Mrs. Here is a tiny tid-bit:

boudoir1I love the pink “lens”. My face looks very round but the angle is what it is and my fat face is what it is!

So much for his eyes only…

Here is my ideal wedding band:


Here is my dream bracelet to wear with it:


It’s only $36K! LOL!

I really don’t know why I like the bezel setting so much. It doesn’t matter if the ring is more vintage in design, vintagebezelringthe bezel setting just screams modernity and uniqueness.


My wedding band may not end up to be an eternity band with bezel set diamonds but it really would work perfect with my eRing. Hopefully, we will get our wedding rings picked out soon. Time is a tickin’!
