An Actual Gift! (sort of)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, LO and I were shopping at Kohl's last week where I happened to run into my new frames (which I adore!). Also on that trip, I found the most adorable Sterling Silver Stud Earrings Set for LO!
















I was shopping for new little stud earrings as a gift for her first birthday, but of course the impatient Mommy that I am couldn't wait that long! I hooked her up with the little red studs for the 4th of July, then put her in the faux diamonds to coordinate with her dress for church Sunday morning. They're really cute and the quality definitely looks to be very good. I haven't seen a stone fall out yet ((knocking on wood))!

As a random coincidence, I received an email last night around 9:00 PM from--get this--AlmostDiamonds.com! The email was informing me that my order had shipped! LOL! I guess filing a dispute with the Better Business Bureau and my Financial Institution was all it took to "magically" ship the order I placed well over 2 weeks ago!

Unbelievable.

At least LO will have a plethora of choices when it comes to her bling!

Speaking of which, I'm now on a mission to find a cutsie jewelry box for my girl. I've searched online (ya, not very much in stores--I'm not at that point yet!) but all I can find are little jewelry boxes that have ballerina slippers, kittens or bows painted all over them! I don't mind a little twirling ballerina in there dancing along when the music box is opened, but I'd prefer to have something other than slippers plastered all over it. Anybody ever seen such a thing?
