Got a New Ring for My Birthday

In September, I mentioned that it would be nice to have a gold bangle for my wrist. We never did go shopping for this, I basically forgot about it! I went to a jewelry store in East Tawas and spoke with our friend, who has worked there for over 30 years. When I spotted this pearl ring, it was love at first sight! No, I don't often buy jewelry. As a matter of fact, it has been years since I had even walked inside this local jewelry store. Margaret allowed me make my own decision, she never pushes to make a sale. I left the store, then went back later in the day to finalize the purchase:) I needed some time to think. Buying my own Birthday gift? Yes, Jay and I do this once in a while, but most generally we don't. It's not an expensive ring, but I love it!

If Jay selected it, the ring might not be exactly what I'd like or maybe it wouldn't fit. This way, it ends up being something that I love!

That's a lovely choice. My husband has learned to let me pick out my own gifts because his taste and mine are worlds apart. Enjoy!

And that's exactly what Jay and I deal with. Our taste is completely different.

@Nakitakona If I feel guilty buying myself a gift, it spoils the fun.

I was hesitant, at first. Then I remembered what Jay said. If it's something that you will enjoy, please go ahead and buy it! So I did

I like to pick out my own jewelry. Men don't usually have the same taste as a women.

@Ancanicoleta Jay and I have never seen jewelry through the same eyes. He likes big, bright things. I like smaller, petite settings.

Jay told me if something pleases you, then it's fine to buy it. I hesitate to do this, because buying for myself isn't something I'm comfortable doing.

@marguicha He's a red hot spender and I'm not. So he wants to buy a lot of things, I don't even need.
