So, you can imagine my excitement when my grandmother asked me to go shopping with her just recently. After sharing the news and excitement of my engagement with my grandmother, the next thing out of her mouth was, “We need to go shopping!” She wanted to give me a gift, or a memento, to always have to remember my special engagement.

We planned to meet for breakfast and then go shopping. At breakfast we laughed and reminisced about our past “dates”. Then we were off to Neiman Marcus to check out the jewelry. After browsing for a while and trying on a few pieces, we decided to move on and check out Barney’s. Barney’s had equally beautiful jewelry, but nothing caught my eye. I was feeling so overwhelmed with all the choices and options, we decided to take a break and stop for lunch. We ate at the newly remodeled La Brea bakery. After refueling our bodies, we decided to check out the jewelry district in downtown Los Angeles. Since I hadn't seen anything I was excited about at Neiman Marcus or Barney’s, my grandmother suggested we have a piece of jewelry made for me. This way I would get exactly what I wanted. After exploring the jewelry district for a bit, we met with a jeweler and put an order in for a white topaz ring.
