Lately, I’ve been a bit lonely because Jesse’s been working the 1-11pm shift at his job. While this makes for long evenings by myself, it also means that he only has to work 4 hrs. on a Friday!
So yesterday we took advantage of this perk and slept in until 11am. Then, we stayed in our pjs eating cereal and watching a movie. At 2pm, he headed off to get ready for work while I went to spend some time with my UD friends Tiffany and Geralyn. What did we do? After grabbing iced coffee, we went to Robbins Brothers to scope out rings for Geralyn. She and her boyfriend are very serious, and he’s told her that the proposal is coming soon, seeing as he just got his first teaching job. She’s been pretty impatient about it ever since their 2 year anniversary, something which I can COMPLETELY relate to 🙂 I had this one red dress I was determined to be wearing when I got proposed to. I wore that red dress for 2 MONTHS STRAIGHT, no proposal. What was I wearing on the actual day? Beach jeans and an old sweater. Oh the irony.
Anyways, even married girls such as Tiffany and I love looking at diamonds. I wonder if there is anything girls wouldn’t do for diamonds.
Seeing as I just upgraded the center stone in my ring a few months ago, I just recently researched everything diamonds related and had a wealth of information to share with Geralyn, who’s never even worn a ring before! It’s funny how she started off saying, “I don’t know, it doesn’t even have to be a diamond ring” and ended by knowing exactly what cut and carat center diamond she wanted. Like I said, girls just cannot resist diamonds. But I remembered a lot more about them than I realized, because halfway through our appointment the Robbins Brothers guy said, “Seriously, I should offer you a job here!”
After I got home, Jesse was done with his short stint at work and we decided to drive around until we found an appealing “hole in the wall” restaurant. Occasionally, he and I like to break out of our “usual” food places and find something completely new. We found this wonderful New York style Italian place where we got yummy pasta and calzones. I love just sitting and talking with Jesse– he’s the best friend in the whole world, and I don’t mean that in a cheesy way. We can just talk and have fun doing just about anything! Even grocery store trips with him are fun, usually because we spend the time singing silly songs or remembering dumb movie quotes.
Once dinner was over, we headed back home to watch a fun 80’s movie with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase 🙂 All in all, a wonderful evening, wonderful day. I just wish I had more like them!
