A surprise find

Every year for the past 4 years, Econo Boy and I have spent a couple nights at our favorite B&B. It's a great romantic getaway, with a delicious breakfast, and best of all it's only a 30-minute drive away -- less travel time means more walking-around-cute-towns time! Last year he proposed to me there, so it will always be a special place for us.

This year, our annual trip yielded an unexpected find. As we walked around a nearby town, we noticed a sign in the window of the jewelry store: Sale on Wedding Bands. Neither of us had one yet (my engagement ring belonged to Econo Boy's grandmother and did not have a matching band), so we stopped in to take a look ... and I ended up finding an amazing bargain on a ring that looks just perfect with my engagement ring!

This is the closest picture I could find.

It's a 5-stone ring in platinum with very small diamonds (all 5 together make 1/4 ct), and the jewelry store has discontinued the design -- this was the only one they had left and they let me have it for half price. They are resizing it as we speak! I'm thrilled that we happened on such a great find, and it makes it even more special that it comes from a place that means so much to both of us.

Hooray! That's awesome! I got lucky with my wedding band as well. It's so nice when things fall into place like that!

Isn't it wonderful when you get a deal on something you have to buy anyway?! I love it!
