I lost my wedding ring at Emily's parents house. They know where to find us but that hasn't helped out. Maybe blogging will pay off for us someday. I bet Travis is just a little disappointed that he won't be able to hold that over you anymore. Sounds like he was enjoying it.

quick raeann story? i once lost my ring in my own house and my whole family was tearing things apart looking for it. i prayed, i cried, then my sister ashley gets home and said, "oh i saw your ring in the bathroom and put it in this pocket in your backpack where it would be safer." what? sisters. So glad you found yours!!!

Matt 'n Erin said...

We need to get together soon!

Daisha said...

Wow! How lucky is that?! So did Travis buy you a new ring after you lost yours, did you wear a fake, or nothing at all?!

Court & Brade said...

Tan! Holy freakin cow! :) I cannot believe that! Wow... she has seriously had your ring this whole time? good thing she found you through blogging! That seriously is awesome.. yay!

That is unbelievable!!!! I remember when you lost that & you by chance had just insured it & you had to go shopping for a new one!!! How funny that now you have 2!!! So what's your plan now??? Do you have to turn the replacement ring back into the insurance company?? :) That's a great story right there!!! I'm happy for you!
