bling bling!

Well guys (or should I say, ladies and Jeremy?) here you go! I got the ring (finally!) Friday night. Isn't it pretty? One of my friends came by to see it Saturday and called it a "princess ring"...

This is the picture Mahon took... as I hear it it took an incredibly expensive digital SLR, a lot of rigging, and weird random things like bobby pins to make it turn out this great:



And here is a (much less thought out) snapshot of what the ring looks like on my finger:

cindy Lynn! I love it! It is amazing how I feel that the diamond looks familiar! I love love love it. And I can't use the link to look at the setup- stinky :)

LOL, I'm glad i've now been singled out twice as the only bro that checks the blog. It's simply not true, my bretheren simply comment on "Man Things" to keep the testosterone pure. Our virility and thus posterity depend on it. Way to go bretheren!!! As for all the sisters commenting on the blog, also way to go, gets that estrogen pumping, also great for the Virility! All in all we should be expecting the anouncment of several sets of Trips any day now.

Wow... who knew that blogging was the secret to a multiplicity of offspring???

I love the ring. I think it is so beautiful! I can't wait to go see the settup for the shot!!!

Nathan & Margaret said...

WOAH!!!!! I looked at the settup. That was so cool to see, and that was a lot of setup for such a tiny ring!!!! You can see how much magnification it has by the weave on the pillowcase in the pic on this blog! The camera looks good too! Whew!!!!

Cindy said...

Yeah. His sister is a professional photographer so he borrowed all her stuff, including her "super super expensive macro lens" (he said a normal macro lens could not have done it) and after much finagling managed to get that picture. Pretty cool.

And Jeremy, I didn't think we were singling you out as the only brother who read the blog... just the only one who would be interested in a picture of a ring... ;-)

is someone hinting that because Ems ring isn't in the bling-O-rama that it isn't perfect?
I actually asked her if she wanted something bigger... i almost died. not a good idea.

Jeremy and Maria said...

LOL no prob Cindy George, I picked Maria's ring out alone then suprised her with it. And trying to take a picture of it didnt work worth a dang. Love ya.

Cindy said...

Sam, I think Em's ring is awesome!

Sam, SuperSam said...

me too.
thanks.
now heres a question though: find me another woman it would fit as well as it fits my SuperCutie. that challenge to everyone that cares to accept.
