Looks like the majority of you believe the girl should give the engagement ring back. And you know what? I agree! And so did the radio listeners. Per the rules of ‘side-takers’ the girl will now have to return the $17,000 ring to her ex-fiance.
You should have heard the excitement in the guy’s voice when they told him!
In fairness he was the one that ended the engagement (she only ended the relationship when he said he didn’t want to marry her anymore), so my heart goes out to the girl, but it sounded like she was just keeping the ring to be petty. If the ridiculously expensive ring was keeping him in debt, then she should return it – what use would she have for it? At the very least if any deposits were made for the wedding that never happened on her part, he should use the money from the ring sale to pay those back.
Just my two cents.
I loved reading everyone else’s opinions! It also sparked some interesting threads on twitter. For instance: what do you think is the most important thing to spend money on at a wedding? Food? Photographer? Dress? Location? etc…
Ever since I saw a friend get burnt on photos (these pictures were awful – awful, awful, awful) I’ve been hell bent on making sure I nail down a great photographer for my future yet-to-have-a-ring-but-can-still-daydream-about wedding. Luckily I have am related to a pretty hotshot photographer who I know will cut me a deal. Right, Andrea? 😉 Check out her photos – THEY ROCK!
This morning I had a mini- Cashew Cookie Larabar as a snack.
If I had known this would be my last item of food for a while I would have gone for a bigger snack.
Ten minutes before I was supposed to leave for lunch I was pulled into an impromtu hour and a half meeting. Umm… yeah. Three quarters of the way through it I felt my blood sugar drop and knew I was about to faint from hunger.
Luckily, my boss caught on that I was about to faint and offered up some cereal from her snack drawer to hold me over. The three of us in the room spent the last 30 minutes casually munching on Frosted Shredded Wheat right out of the box – I’m sure we would have been a sight to see to anyone who walked in the room. 🙂
When we were released I knew I needed something quick to eat, so instead of heading home I decided to finally used the Subway gift card I got from the Healthy Living Summit swag and made a quick run across the street to grab something to eat.
I’m not the biggest fan of Subway because there are –in my opinion- way better places to grab a sub from in a pinch, but I’m cheap and when a meal is free, a meal is free. 🙂
I ordered a 6 in Turkey Combo with a side of chips and a drink.
Not sure why I ordered the combo meal when all I was going to get was water.
My 6 in Turkey had every veggies and a sweet onion sauce.
Side of a new-to-me Parmesan and Italian Herb Baked Lays
I was expecting these to resemble Sour Cream & Onion,. but the flavors were totally difference. These reminded me of a spicier chip and were a little to herby for my taste.
Monica had given me this bag of Chocolate Nut Clusters at the Disney Marathon way back in January. I keep them at my desk and have slowly been eating my way through them.
I had two when my Subway sub left me oddly unsatisfied after lunch.
Time to get back to work!
