It is a terrible thing, envy.
I had it regarding my engagement ring. I love my current setting - cathedral 1.25 carrot diamond in white gold. Beautiful. David did all of the investigating of the diamond, color, clarity, everything. We picked out the diamond setting.
A coworker of mine got a solitare diamond recently...gorgeous in a Tiffany setting. The Tiffany setting is simple and beautiful. It really makes the diamond stand out. I wanted mine to look like that...big, showy.
I spoke with David about resetting my solitare. Looked a several options. I am keeping my setting, and just cleaning it more.
Our things are just that - things. Mine is better than yours...mentality. I believe that we are all guilty at that one time or another.
The one thing that I have been wanting for a very long time (since I left home 30 years ago) was a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I have even tried to win one on www.thepoineerwoman.com - ree drummond gives one away once and a while. Most recently, this past weekend.
We, as a family, went to the movies on Saturday. We wandered into some shops, and of course, into Williams-Sonoma. I went in to price the differences of the Mixers, and ON SALE, was the 90th Anniversary Edition =) Candy Apple Red Artisan Stand Mixer. Last one was the display model....for $150 off. Yes!
We bought it...
and I took it out of its box...and it sits on MY counter...and now - what to make?
No, I am not going to reset my ring. I love it just the way it is. Always have.
I am giddy about my new mixer. Pictures and recipes to come soon. =)
