    Happy Birthday! It sounds like you’ve had an excellent day.

    Bills looks excellent, especially the hot chocolate with Callebaut chocolates. With jewelry, it hard to say whether you are getting your value unless its about the 4C’s.

    I’m jealous that Chris treated you to a massage, I’ve been coveting one for ages – but I think its an overindulgence. I’m looking forward to seeing what you and Chris pick from Tiffany’s.

    The food at Kingsford Chinese looks great, and its cool how you have “your” place. .

    Excellent entry.

    hold on….

    i was just re-reading the comments sections(i don’t like to be influence by other commenters ….err…comments/ thoguhts) and i feel that everyone can have goals, but life is not about goals. its about living the years, months, days, hours, minutes and blah blah.

    if we are so hung up about getting. hitting the yardstick of whatever we set ourselves, we end up not experiencing the really important stuff. the friendships we make, the thrilling encounters we still remember til now, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. no one remembers school days and thinks about the high score on thier test papers. but all remember the kindest teachers, the first crush and hte most embrassessing time that we forgot our lines at the school play. (that’s just me i think).

    this is not to say taht goals aren’t important in Life. but its a guideline. not a set point. its shifts and it fluctuates. no one said getting married at 24 was THe BEST time. no one said having 2.5 kids, a two door garage condo with a beach view and white picket fences was the norm. the norm is often the most misrepresented word in modern times i think.

    so how many best friends have you got after 24 years of being alive? i think that the best yardstick of being successful. remember a good friend will wash the dishes for you, a best friend will move a body for you. hehehhe

    Hey, if you want diamonds, I don’t think Tiffany diamonds are that cheap anyway. $2k will probably only get you small diamonds.

      I’m pretty sure I saw some diamond earrings/necklaces/bracelets there that were about $2k! Hmm.. will go on Thurs and see.. I certainly don’t want anything more $$ than that, it’s already really $$ to me :X

    Pink diamonds are rarer and do cost more, but probably nowhere near what the salesperson claimed. You were wise to pass, but Chris has good taste. You might show him pink tourmaline. I bet he likes that equally well and it’s also uncommon but less pricey. Since you will have more birthdays and anniversaries he will need gifts for… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy Halloween to all as well!

    Wow, sounds like a fun fun day!

    Hey, if you want diamonds, I don’t think Tiffany diamonds are that cheap anyway. $2k will probably only get you small diamonds.

      I’m pretty sure I saw some diamond earrings/necklaces/bracelets there that were about $2k! Hmm.. will go on Thurs and see.. I certainly don’t want anything more $$ than that, it’s already really $$ to me :X

    Pink diamonds are rarer and do cost more, but probably nowhere near what the salesperson claimed. You were wise to pass, but Chris has good taste. You might show him pink tourmaline. I bet he likes that equally well and it’s also uncommon but less pricey. Since you will have more birthdays and anniversaries he will need gifts for… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy Halloween to all as well!

If you’re going to spend that much, and particularly if they’re claiming they’re real pink diamonds, get them independently valued. You’ll be okay with anything from Tiffanys.
