Wedding Rings

Last night we went to see The Lion King at the Cadillac Palace. It was so amazing. I have seen it before, but it's been years. Make fun all you want but it's always been one of my favorite movies. I will admit that when I was younger, I was absolutely obsessed with it because at the time I was convinced that I was going to marry Jonathan Taylor Thomas. (Come on, you know you only watched Home Improvement for JTT too.) Now that I'm all grown up, I'm still a Disney girl. The music is one of the most moving in all of the movies. Now in my adult life, I find the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with. Luckily, he was obsessed with the Lion King too. Thankfully, JTT had no power over him but the music did. It was a fun thing to share together. It also makes me very excited to see the Lion King show in Animal Kingdom in December.

So, moving on to what this post is really about. Wedding bands. As you know, we have found Richard's on etsy.

you just couldn't find this in a store

Just a little background...Richard's favorite animal has always been beavers. He likes how hard working they are. They always need something to do and it's just their life's purpose to work. I just think they're cute. :) So imagine my delight when I found a ring that looks like it's been gnawed by a beaver! I didn't think he'd want it but he was very excited so we are in the process of ordering it. Thanks, Etsy!

Now my ring... :) I've been searching all over the internets, trying to find that one ring that jumped out at me like my engagement ring does. I knew I wanted diamonds on the band but I wanted color too. There have been a few but they were outside the budget. So we went to the jeweler where he bought my engagement ring. They pulled out tons of rings for me to look at and try on at will. That's dangerous, people. It came down to 3 for me. Sapphires, rubies or a green gemstone. Here's what I chose:

do you like our cookie jar?

I chose the rubies, obvs. It's beautiful, unique and fun. I get to wear it in almost 5 months when I say I do to the wonderful RP. :) I'm excited!!



  1. Beautiful! I totally dig the colored wedding band. Very unique.

  2. Beautiful! Verrrry nice pick. Also, I am dying to see The Lion King on stage! When I was a trillion years younger and a trillion pounds slimmer, I was big into dance. We did a number to The Circle of Life that was CHILLING. I wish I could show it to you but I don't even know if I have it on VHS. Anyway. I love your ring!

  3. Ahhhh!!! So exciting! We'll be sisters in the colored gemstones club! I love that my engagement ring has emerald accents. Totally awesome band, my friend. Loves! :)
