    Okay, thanks. I guess I should go ahead and order it as the personalization and shipping might take a while. I'm gonna put it inside of a glass container that is filled with personalized M&M's.

    That's really nice, Michael! You might want to check out the metal and finish used, as sometimes they can get really scratched up when they are worn every day. I had one I got as a gift for being in a wedding party, and even after a few wears, the finish is coming off and it looks old already. But it's beautiful!

    It says it's sterling silver so it should be fine.

    Yeah, I thought about that. But, it is .925 Sterling Silver, so it should be fine. I just ordered it so I'll see. I'm surprised though, they said to expect it around the 21st. I guess I should prob wait a bit on the M&M's though because they shouldn't take too long. Maybe another week or so for them. I just want to make sure that I receive this and that it's perfect.

    I would order the M&M's now if you have the money. Better to be safe, and everyone else might start ordering them soon.

    Hmm, yeah I didn't think about them being backed up with orders. I have the money and will be busy the next week so it probably is a good idea.

    Hmm, idk what to get printed on the M&M's though. I don't want them to say the same thing as the bracelet.

    Maybe our names on one and the date we started going out on another?

    Not too long. Almost 6 months.

    But things will work out, she's the only person I can see myself with. And her last valentines day was really horrible (her boyfriend broke up with her on really bad circumstances).

    Ok six months is good. I was going to say hiding the bracelet in the M&Ms if you had being dating for a long time (5+years) wasn't a good idea because she might be expecting something else in there. :)

    O yeah...on the M&M's though...should I put it as Mike & (first line) Jen (second line) or Jen & (first line) Mike (second line). Jen & Mike fits better I think.

    It's beautiful!

    Even more than the gift, I love the fact that you're thinking of Valentines Day a month ahead of time!

    Went ahead and ordered it. The M&M's estimated delivery is the 21st too. So that would be great! Just need to make sure they stay at room temp. so they don't get that cold look and so they don't melt.

    Thanks for all of the advice/feedback.

    The bracelet is very pretty. And hiding it in personalized M&Ms? wow! What a wonderful idea! You are so thoughtful! :)

    Jen & Mike. And the date July 20, 2008. I didn't like how it seemed so out of place to have 6 characters on Line 1 and 3 on Line 2 and if I put Mike (first line) & Jen (second line) it looks wierd too. So Jen & (first line) Mike (second line) works I guess. So it's finalized.

    I like it Jen and Mike too. That is cool you remember the day you started dating. My DF and I only remember the day we met and not the day we actually started dating. We met 8 years ago on my 25th birthday.

    Yeah, I will never forget the day I asked her out. She kept saying I owed her a cake (i don't know why) so I ended up baking her a heart shaped cake that said "Be Mine". We went to the drive in afterwards. Heh, the only thing is though is that she didn't know I was gonna ask her out and she invitied a friend to tag along. No harm done, and I'll always remember it. It's something we can always joke about.

    Michael's a real sweetheart!!! :thumb:

    My daughter's boyfriend got her (on their 6 months together)...a rose, chocolates and a cute stuffed animal! Wonder what he'll get her on Valentine's day?? :D

    You guys are wonderful!

    It's nice!

    My BF & I each made out & exchanged gift suggestion lists containing not only things we like, but clothing size, favorite colors, etc., so anytime a gift-giving occasion comes up, we have something to refer to.

    I even put a couple things that he should never get me, for example, I hate rose & vanilla scented things.

    That wording didn't seem strange to me. I was saying that we each made out (as in wrote our own list) & then exchanged them, so we had the list of what the other person wanted.

    I see where someone's mind is! :D;)

    Back to Michael. Don't worry about what you have written on the M and M's. She will love them.

    But, I think all of us will be awaiting news of how she received the gift.
