Last week, in preparation for the hair show at school, I got an airbrush tan. I went to the tanning place right after school, and I didn’t want to toss my engagement ring in my purse while I was sprayed down, so I left it at home for the day.
Needless to say, I was having mini-panic attacks all day!! I didn’t realize just how much I play with my ring, and every time my fingers noticed its absence I would freak out!
When I got home after my tan, I put my ring on right away. But it got me thinking about how terrible it’s going to be when I have to live without my ring for a few weeks before the wedding. (I’m getting my engagement ring attached to my wedding band, and I don’t want to wear the band until we’re actually married. So I can’t wear either ring until we’ve actually tied the knot!)
Fortunately, my super-awesome fiance had an easy solution. He told me I should just buy another ring to wear on that finger for the days that I won’t be able to wear the real thing. I don’t plan on getting anything fancy, but just having a ring on that finger will make me feel 100% better than I did last week!
Plus, it’ll be perfect to wear even after we’re married when I’m painting or doing other un-diamond-worthy tasks.
Married/engaged gals: do you feel weird on days when you can’t wear your ring? Do you suck it up, or do you have an alternate ring to put on? Non-married gals: Do you like Travis’ idea, or should I just go ringless before the wedding? Tell me about it in the comments!
