A Funny Thing Happened

 Happy Post-Valentine's Day everyone!!! 

Okay, y'all need to spill the beans - who got engaged, married, or will announce in 3 months that she's expecting a bundle of joy? LOL! I didn't do anything but work - I'm working weekends this month so I sat at home with my child and worked the whole entire day. But I had loads of fun on social media!

So last week, I had to get my car tires changed. My car was due for new tires and I finally closed my eyes, spent the money and scheduled my tire installation. While there - at a big box discount store - I thought I'd be able to sit in their waiting area during the hour and a half installation. Unfortunately, they had just a bench to sit on and I decided to go into the main store and look around.

While window-shopping, I happened upon the jewelry counter. The lady there was really nice and we started chatting about random things while I perused the earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. I'm not sure if I've ever shared that I have big/fat fingers, so it can be hard to find pretty rings that fit. Well, NOT THAT DAY!

I saw this very pretty rose gold ring and when I tried it, both the jewelry lady and I gasped! It was just REALLY REALLY pretty. I wasn't too sure about getting it though, because I hadn't budgeted for it (you know, as a Clever Girl and all) but I thought back to my post about Valentine's Day For Single Moms. Point 4 stood out.

I can't remember when I stopped wearing my engagement ring and wedding bands. I remember loving my engagement ring so much (BUAHAHAHAHA, who remembers this post from when I thought I lost it?!?!?). While pregnant, my fingers expanded and I had to take all my rings off but after I had Coco, and with all the fasting and praying for God to save my marriage, I lost weight and was able to wear them again. BUT at some point, when I realized it was over over, I say "EFF IT, I'm taking these bloody things off and selling them." I haven't quite sold them yet but they're tucked away where I don't have to think about them.

Anyway, last week, I decided it was high time I replaced my ring and got something for me. I felt that if I left the store without the ring, I would regret it and keep thinking about it. Therefore, I treated myself. And the following day, while taking DIY headshots (which I'll share in another post), I decided to take some dreamy photos of me and my ring. I don't know about you, but the photos were FIRE!!! I'm such a beautiful woman! Like WOW!

I sha posted the photos on social media and inadvertently got tons of congratulatory messages on my engagement. To be very honest, I didn't plan to prank anyone but listen, the photos were too good to not post. So, to everyone who sent love and congrats my way, ME and I thank you! I'm not quite ready to date yet, but when I do start, I daresay I might share my adventures of dating as a single mother.

I hope you had a nice Valentine or Galentine. If not, I wish you a week of good food (inside joke with Coco).

Love ya!
