I'm not a fancy girl- especially when it comes to jewelry, that is why the ring J got me is perfect: nice, simple, beautiful.

And let me say that when a girl picks out her own engagement ring-- I think that's super lame and takes the specialness and surprise out of it all- straight up. I went to university in Utah and it was rampant out there and I just shook my head every time I heard about couples who went out on dates to pick out her ring. So dumb.  
So needless to say- no, I didn't pick my ring out. J, with the help of his father and the lady at the store where he bought it from, picked out the ring. We've never had conversations about “what kind of ring I like,” what my ring size is, etc., so I was quite impressed with what he chose. It's a thin band with a small diamond and I love it- not flashy, not fancy. And my favorite part is when you look at it from the side, it looks like it's just sitting in its little spot. As for his ring, we both picked it out-- it's also nothing fancy, just a thin silver band.

Here are a couple pictures of my ring:
