However, technically speaking I think its considered proper wedding gift etiquette as long as its within 1 year of the wedding. (Still you'd never hear me doing this) So you may be wondering what the 2 gifts were. Well one was a check (thank you lord, southern wifey is going broke) the other a bracelet.
Now I'd have to say that the bracelet is actually one of my favorite gifts. Not only is it beautiful, but it comes from my oldest bestest (yeah I can make up words like that) friend in the whole wide world, Erin.

Anyone else see a common theme?
so back to the point of this lil here post. This lovely lady gave me a wedding gift. Does anyone have a Irish Claddah ring?
Me neither. But Ive always wanted one. Just felt awkward wearing it since im only a teeny tiny bit Irish. Basically for those of you who dont know, if the crown is pointing towards your heart your taken, if it points out your single. So wouldnt you know that the Virgin Island (aka St. Thomas where bestie lived) has a similar tradition of their own. Introducing, the "hooked" bracelet.
Gotta love the beer can in the pic...ooops.
And I looked it up and guess who else has one of these precious little things? If you guess my 2nd husband Kenny Chesney, then your RIGHT?!?! (note: he may not know hes my husband yet) He got the bracelet while we were at his private house on St. John. 'nother note: we were not married yet this is why the bracelet is facing out in the pic ;)
sorry. minor setback in the story. Back to bestie and I. I absolutely LOOOVVVEEEE this bracelet. And it was well worth the 8month wait to get it. I havent taken it off since she put it on and I dont think I plan to. Its so simple and its sterling silver so basically it matches everything I wear.
Ok thats all for now. Probably should go back to work. its what pays the bills ya know?
