I went out to lunch with my friend from work this week and she asked me about my rings. I have 3 rings on my wedding finger…that is when I remember to wear them. 🙂
Friend: Why do you have 3 rings?
Me (matter of factly): Because I am a princess. Princesses have 3 rings.
Friend: I want to be a princess too! I am going to tell my husband to get me one!
The funny part is that Hubby’s sister has a princess ring too, only when we were talking about it at Christmas time a few years back, Hubby jumped into the conversation with a very important question: Hubby: So, you just go to the the jewelery store and tell them you want to buy a princess ring, and then they just know what a princess ring is? Me (rolling eyes): Yes, Hubby, that is EXACTLY how you do it.
The story behind the princess ring is quite simple really. My sister’s BFF told me, at her wedding, that she was getting 3 rings when she got married because she IS a princess, and so, in order for her husband to marry her, he had to provide her with “the princess ring.”
I thought it was cool. I wanted to be a princess too. I told this to Hubby.
I told him I would divorce him.
He got me my princess ring.
I am a princess.
End of story.
Hubby even engraved it to say “princess ring.” What a smart guy I have! I guess I will keep him.
