|thank you, VB fire department and rescue squad. my finger is free at last.|
When I got ready to go out on Saturday night, I picked out a ring to match my new Michael Antonio Lovie Pumps. I remembered it was a little small, but it went on my finger fine, so I finished getting ready and hit the town without worrying about the ring.
|perfect match, no?|
I figured I'd try again in the morning... no big deal.
This is my finger around 2 p.m. on Sunday.
After a cry for help via Facebook (what would we do without social networking?) my EMT cousin suggested I hit up the closest fire station to get it cut off.
|thank you, Steffie!|
"Hi... uh, this might sound weird, but my cousin is an EMT... and she suggested I come to you... uuumm.. (gesturing to my finger like Julia Roberts does in My Best Friend's Wedding) I kind of have something I need to get cut off?"
|(best. movie. ever.)|
About 15 minutes, 3 cuts into the ring, and a lot of wrenching and pulling later, I was a freeee woman.
Did I mention this process took three firemen?
|yes. you may cut my ring off.|
|"mom, take it easy on the too-tight jewelry. I'd rather not wait for you in the car at the fire station."|
We celebrated our love for wine with our usual Tortugas Wine Night...
|kisses for the chard|
|carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese filling? peanut butter pretzel truffles? bourbon balls? bruschetta? gosh..|
|Laura used her new bLyss Designs wine glass!|
|and Meggy and I snuggled and ate copious amounts of bruschetta.|
Meghan has a "Beiber yourself" iPhone app. Chloe wanted in. Never say never when you put together a bunch of girls, a dog, and a Bieber Yourself app.
|"not until you're 3, Chloe."|
|so she chilled on Cynthia's furniture while we had our Saturday night fun. =)|
|kisses for mama!|
|Chloe's found a new set of pet-sitters!|
And guess what else happened this weekend?!
|soon to be Mrs. Doherty|
What lesson did you learn this weekend?
