Freezing my Palladium Off

I am crazy sick of freezing at work every day. I honestly don't know why I don't just get about 10 pairs of of footie pajamas in some nice conservative colors and some tasteful accessories and just wear them to work every day. More and more I fail to see the point of putting together anything that resembles an outfit only to wear my coat all day long. Seriously, I'm wearing a sweater, slippers, and a blanket and one of my coworkers has the window open. Gah.

In other news, we ended up ordering fiance's wedding band yesterday. CHECK! Yay! Sadly I'm almost as excited to just have it off the list as I am for the significance. It did make me kind of sad to be the practical couple watching this other couple that was just crazy giddy about the whole thing. Picking out her ring and then his. They were young, though. Is it youth that makes them giddy when we aren't or is this a bad sign?

He was pretty funny about the whole thing. First, we ruled out doing cobalt or tungsten or any of those. They can't be resized and as apologetic as he was about the increased cost for a resizeable metal, both of us want to be able to spend the entire marriage with the same rings we got married with. He wanted white gold because it's what my ring is made of but ultimately we opted for palladium because it is hypoallergenic and with his skin being kind of sad these days, it would suck for him to react to the white gold and to have to get a new ring.
