This set is so sweet and would be fitting for any male or female baby.
One set down and more to come. I bought some pretty variegated yarn to make a matching set for my dear friend who is having a baby girl any day now!
I just see Mesa running wildly in and out of this woodland home. I see myself weeding the roof and Luke plowing our huge garden with his new old John Deere tracker.

The setting that my diamond is in is not right for me for a few reasons. Firstly, it is yellow gold and I exclusively wear silver or white gold jewelry. Secondly, it doesn't fit any fingers on my right hand (the one I would like to devote to this beauty). And thirdly, the diamond sits a little too high for me to wear on a daily basis.
I have decided that I would like to go to jeweler and talk about possibly settings that would suit me. I am looking into white gold and titanium. I surprised by how much titanium looks like white gold. It is highly durable, lightweight, and is much cheaper than white or yellow gold.
Do you have ideas for the setting for my diamond? It is about 3/4 of a carat in size. I am going to go to John Marxhausen Jewelry Design in Duluth and see what they could do for me. Let me know if you have any other thoughts! Thanks....
Note: here is a link to a tension ring setting that I really like.

Shortly after I met Luke he got an IndoBoard as a Christmas gift. I took one look at it and said "no way." Luke and Laddie did some awesome tricks on the IndoBoard and this was even more reason for me to stay away. Since then I have started snowboarding and have continued to try to take up long boarding. I may have to throw in the towel on that one. Maybe I really am too tall and clumsy to truly long board. Time will tell.
However, I have recently faced my fears and conquered (somewhat) the IndoBoard! I now realize that it wasn't an enemy to fear aferall all. This is a great tool to work on my balance and focus on the muscles that I use snowboarding. I hope to also use it to do exercises as well. It's a great addition to any workout. I know now this. It has only taken me three years to realize it.
Check out this cool video.
