the bling of my ring! I am not engaged. No where close to being engaged or having those of you that have wedding or baby fever, rest your hearts. It's okay, it's just my class ring!

When I was in college, I didn't have much extra cash laying around.  I worked as an RA in the dorms for 3 years to pay for housing, meals, and gas.  Then, I paid for tuition in student loans.  I didn't get a high school class ring because I really had no desire for one.  I went to two different high schools and loved both, but had plenty of other things that reminded me of all the fun times and opportunities I had. 

When I got out of college, I moved a couple of times and was trying to figure out life.  In August of 2013, I decided to finally purchase a class ring.  I knew which one I wanted and was ready to make the commitment. 

So, during my lunch hour I drove over to North Carolina State University, walked to the university bookstore, tried on a sample and placed my order. The class ring ceremony was scheduled on a Sunday afternoon in December, but I was unable to attend due to work travel.  I waited and waited for it to be shipped and I finally got it after Christmas.  It was one of the best Christmas presents I could have ever given myself!
