Not Engaged Yet

I'm losing track...

Of everybody.

SO, newbs, regs, lurkers, everyone that reads this:

--What's one thing going on in your life you want to share?

--Show me a picture.  Of anything. (That won't set off my NetNanny at work...)
Ring?  Dress?  Purse your lusting over?  New fave pic or you and SO?

    Howdy Wrkn!

    I'm also having a hard time keeping up with all the new people (nothing against new people--I'm just really bad with names!).

    Sharing - We ordered FI's ring on Saturday. We did a bit of looking in stores and online, and we ended back up at the place we bought my ring. He got a mokume gane design, which is a Japanese metal art of twisting different metals together to create a woodgrain-looking design.

    We didn't take a photo, but this is almost exactly it.



    I also went on a mad online shoe-shopping spree Saturday morning.  I will return at least three of the four pairs I bought.

    Leia, I LOVE that ring. Very modern and fashionable while retaining masculinity and still looking like a wedding band.

    BF shops for wedding bands.  He keeps changing his mind.  He likes diamonds, but doesn't want it to look girly.

    Hi Wrkn!

    Sharing - My gender ultrasound is on Wednesday! I'm so super excited about it! Also our nursery furniture is being delivered this week and I can't wait to see it.

    Picture - we may be moving in the relatively near future and this picture of the kitchen makes me drool. Look at all that cabinet space!

    Hello ladies!

    Hmm, I'm already getting annoyed with my new roommates. They NEVER do their dishes, And I always have to do them because they are disgusting. I think I will be brave and actually talk to them tonight. I'm not their mother and I'm tired of it.

    I will post a random picture later. I've gotta get back to my school work at the moment!

    I don't know what i'm considered (I've been posting for a little while on here), but here it goes...

    My name is Megan (don't think i've shared that before) and I just recently received a promotion at work. Not much else new at the moment. My cat loves boxes (as most do), so here's a cute pic of her.

    Oh, and to answer my own questions:

    Share:
    BF and I went to the casino boat this weekend.  We had a blast.  We played blackjack for three hours.  I won a little, nothing to call home about.  He lost a little, nothing to come home crying about...
    But we had SOOO much fun.  He loves the casino, I've never been a fan. I've only been once before, lost $12 on slots, got pissed and went home. 
    So he really loved to share that experience with me.

    I just bought this cardigan in Royal Blue.  I LOVE it!

    Also, I am now wound so tightly that I am literally jumping in my seat everytime my phone rings. I even set a special ringtone for when the interviewer calls me - doesn't matter if it's the ringtone or not, but I'm so on edge it's driving me insane.

    It does feel like forever. The interview was the 14th and it's now the 31st, so it's been a little more than 2 weeks. I was supposed to have heard from them already, but I'm so hesitant to call them <em>again</em>. To me, that's <em>really</em> pushy. The only thing I can think of is that maybe they're not in such a hurry to fill the position and they're taking their sweet time. They wouldn't not hire me and then leave me hanging, right?

    ah - it has been a while! I don't think they wait to call once they had made a decision. Some companies just take an excruciatingly long time to actually hire someone. Sorry you're having to be so patient! I know what you mean about calling again...I personally would just try to wait it out...

    I am totally lusting after this coat. If I were about 20 lbs skinnier, I'm pretty sure I would try my hardest to justify spending $548 on a trenchcoat.

    Hi my name is Angie (couldn't guess that was my real name, could ya) and I'm getting married in 33 days!  We're planning to get our marriage license this afternoon and having a follow-up meeting with our pastor on Thursday (to go over the results of that online assessment we took - he wouldn't give us the results until the meeting but he did say they were "good" and we would be pleased - so we're really excited to see them).

    I'm using FI's computer right now and don't have any pictures stored on this computer, so I'll just refer everyone to all of my AW posts over the past week or so to look at pictures.

    Cute trench, kath! I say, scour the 'webz with the brand and style name/number for awhile. In a few months or so, it'll be "last season" and marked down. I got my favorite awesome trench coat that way, for $200 less than the original price. Here it is on the model:



    And here it is on me.


    So, since it's in the picture, I will share that I got my first car ever in November! Yep, it took me 26 years. Part of that is having lived where I didn't need a car for so long. It's a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. BF found it initially (we were both in the market at the same time). We got the deal of the century on it, too. I'm pretty proud of it.

    Desert - How do you like your stainless steel?  We have been talking about replacing our pot and pan set and I want stainless steel, but my friends expressed some concerns over it recently and now I want someone else's opinion!

    I love to cook and do so frequently.  Do you have any trouble with things sticking?  I know you're supposed to heat the pans before you put anything in them, but am still curious.

    Thanks ! Smile

    Hmmm, I don't think I've ever told you guys but my name is Paige too! It's awesome that I share a name with the woman who has the cutest pug ever. I want a pug so badly but BF does not like them. He wants a bulldog but I don't like those, so we are compromising and have decided to either get a boggle (Boston Terrier and beagle mix) or a mini yorkie!!!


    Gahhhhh decisions.




    or





    I'm leaning towards the first, but they shed and get fairly decent sized. And since BF has allergies, shedding is bad. But Yorkies are high maintenance dogs... I wish I could get a cat but BF is severly allergic. Darn it!!
