Diamonds are a girls best friend

My Anniversary gift came 3 days late.  But I'm not complaining!

I'm in love with my new wedding band!
I wish I would have never got my first band put together with my ring.  It's just a plain, thin band and neither of us liked it.  But, it would serve it's purpose of showing our love. 

I didn't need a new band with diamonds or bling, but we both agreed that my engagement ring needed a prettier friend! I'm not all about the bling and the big diamonds, but it seemed appropriate this time!
        Now, just to get it into the jewelry store and put together.  I hate parting with my wedding ring because I always feel like I lost it.

Anyway, we spent the weekend with family for my baby sis (in-law)'s graduation and had a ton of fun with a few tears!  I will be posting pictures later.
But right now, my mind is set on helping out the poor residents of Bismarck and Mandan.  My husband and a friend of ours are working at getting our volunteer fire department there tonight or tomorrow to do what we can for a few hours.  I have been wanting to go help for the last couple days, and last night J decided he wanted to help and he was going to round up some of the fire department to join us.  I'm hoping that I can be a help even though I'm kind of a weakling!
I've been reading the ND Floods facebook page today and seeing what people need help with.  I can't help but feel sad for those looking for help at elderly people's houses.  I want to leave now! They are doing mandatory evacuations again, which means it's not getting any better.
I cleared it with my boss this morning and he said for the day, he will sign off on my 8 hours.  I thought that was generous of him considering they will pay me to volunteer somewhere else.  But that's the kind of company I work for!

Just a little too much water, and a little too little help!  I feel like I should do my part.

Enjoy the day wind and be thankful its not more rain today!
