This week's topic: gift

Not the Yoshi, which is clearly the focus in the picture, but the ring on my thumb.

The past few years have been rough. My husband bought me this ring for Christmas one year. It came at just the right time as a reminder that I was loved when I was miserable. I did have to exchange it for a smaller size so I could wear it somewhere other than my thumb.

I've lost it twice.
Once, my husband actually found it. I had taken it off before going to my then job (late night stocking at 5 Below). I actually thought I lost it at work, which means I'd be unlikely to get it back because with all the lifting and moving and sweeping... it'd probably have been trashed.

Then the big lose happened. We looked everywhere for it for months. My husband bought me the exact same ring the following Christmas.

Incidentally, my nephew received a metal detector for Christmas as well. When he and my daughter went out to play with it... they found it within 5 minutes.

I returned the new one.


  1. Wow!! That's a gorgeous ring! And it sounds like a magical gift too. Especially with losing it, and getting it back two times. Love it. And I love the Yoshi too! ;)
    Thanks for joining and sharing your favorite!

  2. What a special ring, and so pretty. It's amazing that you found it twice. I lost the stone to my fist engagement ring - and never found it.

  3. That is some story :) useful things, metal detectors, eh :D I am so glad you found the original one (although it's super sweet that he tried replacing it!)
    P.S. I approve of both the Yoshi and the ring! A big Mario fan myself :D
