5 Places I Get Caught Staring At My Wedding Ring

By guest blogger Natasha Burton


Well before I met my husband, I was enthralled with the idea of wearing a wedding ring. (Paired perfectly with an equally lovely engagement ring, of course.) I’ve never been the type to get all starry-eyed over jewelry, but these rings were different. They meant something–more than I could know when I was single and just excited about the future prospect of someone wanting me to be his wife.

Now that I’m married (almost three months!) I look down at my left hand more than I care to admit. I’m almost surprised to see that sparkle on my ring finger–even though I was engaged for over a year and a half before I took my trip down the aisle. (Hopefully I’m not alone here?) These are the top five places I catch myself checking out my own rock.

1. In the car
The sunlight coming through the windows and windshield amplify the sparkle factor of my bling—how can I not take a peek?!

2. While making dinner
Really, during any lull in my daily life, when I’m paused or waiting for something (a pot to boil, for instance), I catch myself examining my ring. Hey, it’s the most interesting thing to look at.

3. On my couch
Yep, sometimes I’m just vegging out with my HGTV and I find myself glancing down at my rings. You know, just making sure they’re still there. Sometimes I even poke my husband and ask him how awesome my rings look today. Rhetorically, of course.

4. In yoga class
While I was engaged, I committed myself to finishing 300 workouts (of 30 minutes or more) in one year as a way to get in shape for my big day–and to form a healthy habit I could stick to for the rest of my life. I’d look down at my rock for motivation, when needed, which was quite often. Even now, I find myself using my ring as my focal point when I’m holding an uncomfortable yoga pose. (Thinking: “After this class, I can sit on my couch and watch HGTV with my husband.”)

5. When I spy another woman’s rock.
Look, we all do it. (Right?!) Every time I catch sign of another woman’s wedding or engagement ring (or both), I peep back at my own. I can’t help it.

Women Who Propose To Men

For years popping the big question has been considered a man’s job, but lately more and more women are stepping up to the plate and taking “Will You Marry Me?” into their own hands.

See how Audrey surprised David, her boyfriend of 3 years, with an unsuspecting marriage proposal and a Scott Kay Men’s Cobalt Ring on the popular talk show The Real. Let’s just say David looked a bit uncomfortable, but maybe that’s because her question caught him completely off guard.

Meanwhile, on the Steve Harvey TV segment, Ask Steve & Receive, sweet Karli planned to ask Kevin to marry her after 9 years of dating. She was beyond ready but Steve advised her differently. See what happens:

What do you think? Should a woman propose marriage to her man or is it best to wait for him to pop the question?
