So yesterday we decided to knock a big thing off of the wedding list - rings. We went up to Lakeline Mall and thought we'd check out a jewelry store. Our first sign we were a bit over our heads: there are like 11 jewelry stores there! Anyway, we gamely went around to 6 of them and eventually settled on a nice titanium ring from Helzberg Diamonds - it was cheaper than I expected and very lightweight, which is good since we both type all day. Here's a picture:

Ooh, pretty! Are you getting them engraved?

I think y'all should get matching engagement tattoos. heh.

Comment from wonderjess:

PS, are y'all going to register anywhere? I hear you get to go around with a scanning gun! It sounded like something y'all would enjoy.

Comment from flamingophoenix:

The scanning gun was the best part about having a registry.

Comment from gregstoll:

As appealing as going around with a scanning gun shooting things sounds (like laser tag, but your targets don't move!), I think we're going to skip the whole registering thing and ask people to donate to charity or something.

Comment from gregstoll:

I should point out this is still kinda up in the air.

Comment from flamingophoenix:

Yay rings! We got ours at greenkarat.com, which was super fun. Hooray for recycling! ;-)

Be careful with titanium; if your finger swells, many hospitals can't cut it off (they have to get special equipment). Or so I am told by another friend with a titanium wedding ring.

Comment from djedi:

Probably worth doing research on but I heard that was mostly an urban legend these days; I believe most hospitals have ways of getting the ring off.

Comment from copperwolf:

Yay! :)

Does your finger feel strange now? It took a week or two for me to get used to 1st my college class ring and again later my engagement ring.

Comment from gregstoll:

I'm not allowed to wear it yet, except for pictures and showing off. And when I'm not being watched :-P

Comment from djedi:

We're NOT married yet!

I gotta start keeping a closer eye on you :P
