Thursday checks!

Got Fi's band in the mail today, when he comes home for lunch I plan on surprising him with it with a "will you marry me?" and presentation of the ring ;) yes, I'm a sap!

Super excited about this- I got ALL the candy for our favors yesterday!! I know it's a little early, but it was on sale for $0.98 a pound!! I got 36 lbs of caramel filled chocolate cups for about $37!! WooHOO!! that's under budget by about $63 :D I love saving money! AND, once they're in the boxes, I can store them in large air-tight containers and store them in the garage pretty much up until the wedding, because I live in WA and it's cold outside!

NWR: I had a face to face interview yesterday for that assistant manager position and it went really well! I find out in a week or so if I got the job :) I also have another interview today for a personal assistant job. Less pay, and further away from my house, but it sounds like a pretty easy job, PLUS I'd get full benefits including sick and vacation days, which is something I have NEVER had. fingers crossed!

    He said "yes!" lol he was excited to get to see it and try it on. . .It's a little big, unfortunately, since it's tungsten and can't be resized, but when I told him how much I paid for it, he was like "oh!, well, if I lose so much weight before the wedding that it no longer fits, I'll just buy myself a new one" lol! it was only $60, which he found hilarious since mine was thousands. He said " well, I spent thousands on yours and you spent $60 on mine, but that's totally fitting since you're doing all the planning and putting the whole thing together!" it was nice to have that recognition, and we both agreed that it was doubly fitting since he's also the far more frugal of the two of us, so he thinks it's really cool that I got such a good deal on his ring!

    darn it, I totally replied with his reaction, but I don't see the post!!
    FI was really excited to see the ring, and when I "proposed" he said "yes!" lol, it was really cute. his ring was a little loose, though, and since it's tungsten it can't be sized, but when I told him he can't lose any more weight until the wedding he asked me how much I paid for it and I told him it was $60. so he said "oh! well, shoot, if I lose more weight and it doesn't fit at all, then for that price I'll just buy myself a new one! no biggie!"
    what's really funny is that when he remarked about the price difference of his ring compared to mine (thousands vs. $60) he thought that was so fitting since a) he gave me my ring and now I'm having/getting to plan the whole wedding pretty much by myself (so apparently I "deserve it" for all my hard work ;)  ) and b) he's by far the more frugal of the two of us so he found that funny :)

    is it just me, or does it say there are 7 posts on the thread list page for this thread, and only 5 show up? TK is being weird, I think. . .

    I got a DIY project done today.  Two of these:
     The pic is saved correctly on my phone and computer, I don't know what the problem is from my computer to TK, but as FI said, it's round, what does it matter?

    Anyway,  I have two of these size and I think I'm going to make 1 more and place them on candle sticks on the mantle of one of the rooms at the reception.

    First fitting out of the way today! Had my "surrogate" Mom come with me, since my Mom and FMIL were both busy. She really noticed the little details that I would of over-looked! =]
