put a ring on it.

I really like how iPhone was able to capture the raggedy thread caught on the diamond prong.

I just got my ring back from being rhodium dipped and resized.  They look great.  You see, I haven’t been able to wear my wedding rings since… well, since I was in my second trimester with Maisy.

Since Maisy is in her ninth month of life, I figured it’s time to embrace the inevitable, that I forever have ham hock hands.  Plus I was tired of being hit on constantly without a wedding ring on.  (hahahaha, that was a lie!) It’s a hard row to hoe, but I make due.  I have wrinkles left over on my wrists from how swollen and gigantic my hands got.  My knuckles still don’t work correctly.  You think I’m exaggerating, I can tell.  I can feel your judgement, nay, even disbelief seeping through the internet waves (Confession: I don’t know how the internet works).  My pregnant hands, shall I compare thee to a summers day?  Nope.  I could compare them to a bloated corpse found left at sea or maybe a gigantic wood troll.  They looked like an inflated medical glove.  Or Gwyneth Paltrow in her Shallow Hal fat suit.  My hands looked like they’re wearing a fat suit.  The proof is in the pudding (and from the picture below, you can tell I ate a lot of pudding during my pregnancy)

Oh my gosh right??!!

Excerpt from my blog reviewer Nick:

“Nick, tell me if my hands look fat”

“Oh my gosh, so fat, I thought they were sausages”

And then we both laughed really  hard.


One thought on “put a ring on it.

  1. This made me laugh…a lot! You are seriously beautiful, so who cares if you go up a ring size from birthing two kids. Everyone will just be staring at your gorgeous hair anyways 😉
