Diamonds are a girls best friend ???

Call me a brat, call me spoiled rotten, whatever..but hubby and I are sitting here arguing right now because...(sit down) he wants to buy me diamonds and I DON'T want them. I'm so picky about my diamonds and to be honest I wouldn't wear them anywhere. He thinks I'm being selfish and I should think about my children and leave them something to hand down to them. WHAT??? Buy something so it can sit around until I die and then give it to my kids???

I'd rather spend the money on something I actually want..a new couch, a new dining room table???

A day at the spa with no kids by myself--with no kids -- quiet --have I mentioned no kids yet??

So am I being absolutely unreasonable because I just don't want diamonds...oh and I think I hurt his feelings because I told him that the pair of pearl earrings he bought for me I didn't like...because I just don't wear earrings. He expects me to pay attention to him and what his likes and dislikes are but he doesn't even notice I hardly wear jewelry and when I do I like to wear unusual kinds not sparkly glittery stuff.

Nope...I COMPLETELY agree with you.

that's what The PK and I do for each other for Christmas...instead of getting a bunch of little things, we get something we need for the house. One year it was new furniture...the next, new carpet. Stuff like that.

I mean, it's what you WANT that counts, right??? Right!!!

I, personally, would love a diamond. But that's just me. I can see exactly where you're coming from though. If you really don't like jewelry, then its not really an appropriate gift.

I TOTALLY understand! I'm not much of a jewelry person, either. I'd much rather have something for my house - or a nice trip somewhere...

I can see both sides of the argument, but of course i am the one who loves jewelry....good luck!!!
