Not all its made out to be...

A few months ago I figured out how to cut back on the self induced stressed caused by the wedding planning. I just stopped talking about it to people other than K and family. It has seriously helped. But now that it is closer to the wedding my mother is driving me nuts. I cried my eyes out yesterday.

There a long history on why my mother and I don't see eye to eye. I am my father's daughter. Sad to say, but I see why they got divorced. Anyway, my mother had never really been a traditional Vietnamese woman, heck she got a divorce! But now for my wedding she wants everything to be like we were back in the motherland! All the "traditional" things I am doing for the wedding are not traditional enough for her. We fought, I cried, and then I didnt talk to her at the menu tasting unless I had to.

I was so upset, I called my father. He agreed that these little "traditional" things my mom wants done is not important. All that matters is that we are happy and that we start our lives together. I puffy heart my dad. K calls me daddy's little girl, which is true though. My sister is like my mother and I am like my father.

This has become a long rant. I can't wait for the planning to be over and done with!

With this ring part deux....

I got my ring in the other day and it is perfect! I love how it goes hand in hand with my engagement ring. It adds some extra bling to my round solitaire (with a thin band). It also looks simple and classy on its own. I am hoping to buy another one maybe on the 5 year anniversary and stack them.

I ordered K's wedding band the day after mine and it should be there today when I get home. We needed something durable since K works with his hands alot. He probably won't be wearing it much during the week when he is out on the field, but he doesn't want to bang it up. We decided to go with palladium because it will not scratch as much as platinum and the price is much better than platinum. I showed him some titanium and tungsten bands but he wasn't impressed. Here is what he picked out:

We purchased the band through They have a wide selection of men's wedding bands.

With this ring...

I finally ordered my wedding band. After months of searching for one at a local jeweler that would not completely break the bank, I decided to go with I have been eyeing this design for quite some time now. I tried it on at a local jeweler and they were about $500 more expensive than bluenile. I was able to find a coupon code, there was no tax, and free overnight shipping. I am so excited to get it TOMORROW! Did you have a hard time choosing your band? Next up, Fi's band.
