We have been tagged by Carla and Amy! Here goes! :)

1. The first book was Manners and Customs of the Bible by James M. Freeman
2.Turned to page 123
3. The fifth sentence of page 123 is this.... hmmm.....we kid you not: "There's no reason to interpret, as some writers do, the expression "White asses", to mean asses covered with white comparisons."
4. The next three sentences are: " The intention is to indicate the wealth and luxury of the riders; And as asses wholly white, or even nearly so, are rare and costly, the men who own them must be classes among the rich and influential. Morier says that in Persia the Mollahs, or men of the law, consider it a dignity suited to their character to ride on white asses." "[Judges] V, 11, They that are delivered from the noise of arches in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the Lord."
5. We tag Anna, Sarah, Becca, Beck, Heidi.

1. Pick up the nearest book (that has at least 123 pages.)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Post the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
Do it if you want. Ha ha!

We apologize for this post. Sincerely. We were just following the rules. To the letter. Which is weird for us. ;)

You all have a lovely Monday. :)
Genevieve, Marguerite and Aimee!

P.S. You might want to watch this video. You might not. But you should.

Angies Cake

Here are some pictures of the cake that my sis and I made for Angie's wedding. We used the same pans from Cherie's wedding. Thank you Mrs. F!! You are a life saver! :)

Here it is in the back of Bingley (waaa!) on the way to the hall. We didn't want to even try transporting it fully assembled. No way. We don't need gray hairs yet!

(Awesome pictures by Aimee!)

And here it is getting adorned for the big moment. :) Thanks Rob and "Merry" for your artistic touches!! You gals are life savers too! :) Sadly, I never get a picture of the completed cake! I'm going to have to work on that...

Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway over at Pretty Wit!

While we are on the subject of engagement rings, I will show you my "dream ring" Well, ok, "dream rings". There are so many beautiful ones out there that I simply cannot choose. I am quite glad that it wont be up to me. :)

So, if I had to choose just one I would most likely choose a solitaire diamond either brilliant or oval cut. I like the look of white gold or platinum the best but I also love rose gold. Another feature that I adore is filigree or engraving on the band. I prefer that over little diamonds on the band. But, of course, little diamonds are gorgeous also. Here is a picture of the closest that I could find to my ideal.
This next picture shows the type of engraving I love.

Here is a lovely example of what a Brilliant Cut diamond looks like. Isn't it beautiful? I can see a star in the middle of it. I think it is so beautiful.
I also love the look of these antique engagement rings.

I think this ring is so beautiful too. This is another antique style ring. Very different and beautiful.

And here are a few examples of rose gold. Lovely!! I love the antique look it gives to the rings.

Look how elegant this ring set it. I don't usually go for the bands covered with diamonds but I think this one is simply irresistible!

And just for fun I had to include this amazing ring from Tiffany's. Of course, it has a startling starting price of $37,000...........ahem.

Thank you all for the comments! It has been fun hearing about all the different rings that people like. :) Let's hear some more! What does your "dream ring" look like? Or, if you have one, tell us what it looks like! Or post a picture of it for us to see. :)

Our sisters engagement ring!

I know I said a VERY long time ago that I would post a picture of our sisters engagement ring. So here it is! Of course, it looks bigger in real life. :) I wish I had a picture of them both together. It is so pretty!

What style or cut do you want for a wedding ring? Leave a comment and describe it to me!
