I did have to take my engagement ring into the jewelers today though because it was a bit big (I have ridiculously teeny fingers!) and won't have it back until Monday afternoon (sad face!). I was tempted to just let the ring be too big because I didn't want to take it off. But, it will be gracing my finger again on Monday.
Me? Shamelessly showing off my ring? Never!
I actually took these pictures a few days ago, I am not wearing a dress today. Its freezing and rainy and horrible outside and I had my very first urge for the next few weeks to hurry up and happen already so that we can leave for Sydney, where they actually get a summer.
The dress is vintage and the shoes, oh the shoes. Best thrift find ever! These are leather and were brand new in the box (they still had the paper stuffing in them), and the price on the box said $199 and I paid next to nothing for them!
Its back to work on Monday for my last two weeks - I am thinking about cutting it down to a week and a bit though as we only have three more weeks left in this house and I feel we'll need more than a week to sort everything out.
I've been making feeble attempts to pack (and have managed to pack three boxes of books) but there is so much to do and so little time.
I can feel the stress creeping up - its not here yet, but it is chilling in the background, biding it's time...
