Show me your rings!

I saw another blogger posting this, and I just had to jump in!
Mrs. Yellow Ribbon is hosting a new weekly link up called "show me your.." and this week is rings!

I had to take a picture right before I posted!

Did you look at rings together?

Yes and no. I think this needs some explaining.. Chris and I had talked about getting married before he left for boot camp, but decided against it since we would only have been together for 7 months. I still hoped he would ask before he left, but I think I confused him and instead he gave me a promise ring, and it just so happened that promise ring was a wedding band. At graduation, he proposed by taking off my ring 'since he hadn't gotten a chance to look at it since it was sized" and then asking with the same ring. We got married in a courthouse a month later, and planned to get my diamond ring when we had our ceremony back home. When the ceremony date got postponed, Chris made a deal with me to get a smaller ring now so I would at least have a diamond on my finger, and one day he will get me my 'dream ring.' So yes- I got to pick out one of my rings! 

Do you like your ring? Did you from the very beginning?...and be honest!
Yes, I love it! I have really small hands so the diamonds are not overpowering. Plus, I couldn't decide whether I wanted a princess cut three-diamond ring or a circle diamond with smaller ones surrounding it, so now I get one and then the other later!

How often do you wear your rings?
All the time. I take it off to wash dishes, shower, and sometimes to cook/bake. I used to take it off at the gym, but I got these awesome gloves that protect my rings and hands (and make me look pretty BA).

Do you clean your rings?
Nooo, but I guess I should. Just every couple months to the jeweler.

What went through your mind the very first time you saw your ring?
Well, when I got my promise ring (wedding ring to be lol), I thought wow! Then I thought... what does this mean? I didn't know if it was a promise ring or if he was using it as an engagement ring!

We did the rings backwards, but I wouldn't have it any other way because now I will always have the ring that he proposed to me with, and I get to upgrade my other one!
