Sure did. I got the two that I wanted. LOL. I got to pick both of the engagment rings I have. They are both very special to me because they each have a special proposal that went with each of them.
Was the proposal a complete surprise?
OMG YES! They both were. I never had any inclination that it was going to happen. Especially this past one. He totally suprised me with a candle lit dinner at the house. He put so much thought and effort into it. It was absolutely amazing and a story I can't wait to tell our kids about.

Unique Parent Gifts to show your love
Hellooooo FB's... I was wondering if any of you had any ideas for gifts to give to the parents of the bride and groom? I've looked online but really haven't found anything worth buying.
Okay... It has taken me forever, but I finally found the shoes for my wedding dress. It was very difficult because my dress is not white, its a diamond white lace over a champagne colored satin. The dress is absolutely amazing, but since I couldn't wear white or sliver shoes, trying to find the right shoe with the right height (FH is 6'2) was very difficult, but I finally found them, YAY!!!!
Wedding Favor - Paddle Fan
Okay... I just completed the final draft of my paddle fan. Again, I created this from scratch. I took the design that I have on our wedding invitation and put all four corners together and created the front of the fan that says ENJOY! Then on the back I put a little thank you note thanking all of our guests and parents.
Now that I have it exactly how I want it, I have to start moving and getting all 120 of them made since there's only 16 days left til our wedding day, but with the help of my best friends & family they'll be done by this weekend!!! ::: crossing my fingers ::::: LOL
So.... what do you think???
Our Wedding Invitation. I made them myself!!!
Okay... Here are a few pics of how my DIY wedding invitations came out. I created them from scratch. I used plain white greeting card, white matte photo paper from Staples, Clip Art, Wedding Font CD, HP home printer, Martha Stewart paper trimmer, Ribbon from Walmart , and Lots "n"Lots of time and love were put into them. Oh and I also stamped the back of each invitation in blue with a saying that said, "Handmade with Love". Bought the stamp & ink from Michaels craft store.
Everyone loved them! I received so many compliments from family and friends saying that if I hadn't mention to them that I made them by hand, they would have totally thought I bought them. What a compliment huh?
Well, I hope you ladies like the way they came out as well.
Tell me what you think....
I NEED A MIRACLE WEIGHTLOSS PILL

Does anyone know of any good weightloss supplements that REALLY REALLY WORK??? I need a miracle pill. I'm hitting up the gym tomorrow morning before work.
Ay ya yaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Guest Book & Advice Cards
Okay ladies.... So I saw this post on Marthastewart.com under DIY guest books and I totally fell in love with it and think that it'll go perfectly with my aqua beach wedding.
Instead of signing a guest book, friends and family are invited to write their good wishes for the couple on cards drawn from woven-pandan boxes. The notes are then placed in a large seashell-filled vase tied with a vintage silver ribbon.
What do you think?
I really like danypink's idea about having the guests sign "real" sea shells instead of cardstock. This way I can display the sea shells in the vase and have it as a part of my home decor. This is going to look absolutely amazing. I found a great deal on scallop sea shells on seashellworld.com. I'm getting 100+ at $0.30 each. WHAT A STEAL!
*** thanks again ladeis for all your input ***
I NEED & WANT THESE SHOES...PLEEEEEASE HELP!!!
I came across these shoes on a photographers webpage and absolutely fell in love with them. Does anyone know where I can find these or who the designer is???
Just a few ideas.... I'm really digging the pink being the accent color!
