Valentine’s Day & My Great Catch!

February 15, 2012

The girls at work and I went to lunch and saw a table next to us with a reserved sign sitting at the end of the table with flowers & chocolate on the other side. I quickly took a picture before the couple came in and sent the picture to Tyler and told him that was cute! He texted back with “lol” and nothing else.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got home since we hadn’t really talked all day. I walked in the house to see him cooking dinner and the table set up with roses & the homemade reserved sign, haha!

During dinner he did pick up the rose and asked me the famous question from The Bachelor, will you accept this rose? Too funny!

This is what I got Tyler for Valentine’s Day because he IS a great catch! He said he doesn’t even want to eat it and would rather keep it in the box the way it is.

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Wedding Wednesday :: Number Five

5. engagement/bridal pictures: let’s see them!

We had our engagement pictures taken 2 months before the wedding. Way too late, I know but we wanted our pictures taken in Arizona not New York. Also it was just the perfect timing since our really good friend was a photographer at the time and did our pictures with his sister.

Since we had just moved back to Arizona, we didn’t really have that many friends at the time so my mom hosted a wedding shower for us. It was nice since it was just a small get together with family friends. Tyler didn’t know some of them so it was a perfect time to introduce him to them before we got married.


I love my Kate Spade china set!

4. The ring: tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!

Occasionally I would look online and see which rings I liked and always emailed Tyler the pictures with a brief message, “FYI- I like this ring!”

I sent him another picture earlier that summer when he proposed and didn’t think anything of it. Of course all the pictures I sent him were from Tiffany & Co. I didn’t know where else to look and he knew I was fine with the ring not being from Tiffany & Co. Maybe on our 20th anniversary?!

He got my ring from Shane Co and with his mom’s help. Because we were in college, we didn’t really have any money saved up so his mom paid for the ring. That was really sweet of her to do that! This was why I was so shocked and did not expect him to propose because I knew we didn’t have money for a ring yet.

We bought his ring at Shane Co a few months before the wedding. He wanted a simple white gold ring and we found one that he liked and was within our budget.

But he lost his ring at the lake about 6 months after the wedding.

We never found it and unfortunately we didn’t have our rings covered at the time. So a year later for our anniversary we had money saved up to buy him a new ring. We both actually like his new ring better than the one he originally had.

Here’s a lame picture of me and the ring.
