Memphis Trip

We went back to Memphis this weekend for a couple of reasons. We had to pick out a wedding band for me and we had to finish up our dance lessons for the wedding.

Shane got my engagement ring through a jeweler that a lot of the baseball players, who are in Memphis at the time, go to for their girlfriend/wives jewelry. I wanted something simple to go with my ring - not to take away from the main stone.

That's the best picture I can find of my ring so I went with something really simple to go next to it... It sort of looks like this..

I think the diamonds stick up a little bit more though. I think it's a really pretty ring on it's own so if I go running or something I can just wear it without the engagement ring. Anyhow I'm not really picky so it didn't take too long for me to pick it out. Afterwards we went to our dance lessons.... 

(First pic from my new camera!!) We are learning a "rumba" dance to Michael Buble' song- Sway. ...We were supposed to be learning the dance in 6 different sessions when I came to visit Shane during the season, but since he got hurt and came home for the season we went up for one weekend and tried to put something together all it once. It was exhausting! I did a lot of twirling in my free time...

Our dance instructor was a huge "Chatty Kathy;" he had a story for EVERYTHING. Poor Shane..

I don't know what I was thinking when we signed up for'll see. Maybe it's bc he took this video on the second day, but I keep doing this thing with my neck and Shane looks like he's not into it at all and I'm dragging him around. Sort of embarrassing.. We have a lot of work to do if we are really going to do a dance for the wedding. Here's a preview... Don't laugh too hard.


  1. We loved our first dance lesson before we got married! It's so fun to practice at home too. I hope you post pictures of your wedding dance! Thanks for your comments on my blog!

  5. I love that you are taking dance lessons. That is going to be awesome! Maybe I can talk the Mr into that. We only have about a month however. There isn't much hope for us:)

    PS-I hope you have smaller feet than I do. I went to order those tieks and they are out of a size 7. Sad day!

  6. OMG! I love that song. I always dance around like a maniac when it comes on and hubs just stares at me so it's nice that he at least moves...haha

  7. AHHH JESS!! I knew you had some moves but not like that! This is going to be so awesome - I had goosebumps! Love love love love! Can't wait to see it live! Tell Shane he looked good too - I was very impressed!
