I got a ton of how to requests so I figured I would post it for anyone to use. I had a necklace that was 36 inches long. I mesured out 16 inches for my neck. I then took needle nose pliers and snipped the chain apart. I didn't need the 20 inches to hang down to my butt so I took it from the base of my neck and checked the length to where I would like it to be, but the final check is with the dress on. I went with 6 inches off the back and the rhinestone balls where 6 inches apart. I wanted at least 3 of them on the back so I snipped again and reattached the three balls to fit within the 6 inches. It is REALLY easy. The rhinestone balls have little hooks so they were very easy to reattach. I hope this is helpful
I wanted to add this page for my daddy. My father passed away on September 11th 2008. He was just 61 years young. He had a double lung transplant in July 2004 due to being exposed to asbestos in the Navy. He was doing remarkably until last June. He started getting sick and his docs couldn't figure it out. Long story short he had a fungi pneumonia and sepsis which is what killed him. When my FI and I bought our house Jan 08 we bought one with an entire in law for my parents so that my mom could retire and spend all her time with my pops and not worry about money. Well they had been trying to sell their house and hadn't yet by the time my dad had passed. 2 weeks later mom got a offer took it and moved in to her new digs. It has been very hard to see her and not dad. But being here around us has helped her alot. I can't imagine loosing my husband my life of 43 years. My dad was planning on walking me down the isle and promised he would hold on for our weddings. You see my little brother is getting married in July 2009. I thought after that I couldn't imagine doing this without him. But my big brother said it would be his honor to step in. I was blown away but it made me realize he is now simba king of pride rock. We decided to have my little bro the best man and mybig bro to walk me down the isle and I think my momma should walk with us but she is shy and probably would put her over. I have never admired a man as much as I have my dad he was the best friend everyone wanted. He was what makes heroes, heroes. I love him and am so thankful my guy had the time with him to know his greatness
Robert and I met May 8th 2007. I was going to a job interview. I walked in and asked to speak to Roger lol, I was quickly corrected and told it was Robert that will be doing the interview. You see my fhtb is puerto rican with a kick of Jersey so he speaks with a beautiful accent in high gear.So when he called to set up a time to come in I didn't quite understand him. I sat and waited for a few minutes and there he was WOW WOW WOW! I forgot why I was there, instantly mesmerized my smile burst like a little girl and I knew I was blushing. He conducted the interview very professionally but he too smiled the whole time. I got the job and couldn't think of anything but how am I going to hide this. All I had to do is look at him and would blush so obviously I just had to avoid him, NOT!!!! He's my boss and I had to answer his questions and report to him. Because I am a lady I kept it to myself and didn't know if he was married. Quickly getting bits and pieces of who he was I knew he was avail. About six weeks into the job he made a comment to me in passing and said I wish you were my future ex-wife. I was like what the hell does that mean so for a few days I thought about it and couldn't get it. I went to his office and asked him what does that mean. He giggled and said I could see you as my wife. Speechless I replied with oh ok and walked away. Now knowing he too had a liking to me I wanted to go on a date but knew it wasn't gonna be easy. I sent him a txt one day and asked him on a date he said absolutely but like blew me off for a month which at that point I thought he was playing with me. Then on his day off he came in for a few minutes and I wanted to confront him but didn't want to put him on the spot. I did it anyway and came right out and said why are you avoiding me and apologised for asking him out in the first place. He expressed he was afraid that he would fall to fast because of the feelings he already had for me. He said that we will get together this week. We did go on that date and when he hugged me hello I knew that very minute those were the arms I was going to spend the rest of my life in. From that moment on its been the most incredible life I had ever dreamed of. By the way I didn't feel it was appropriate for us to continue to work together seeing that he was my boss so I resigned! We bought a home together and couldn't ask for anything more. What a beautiful life we have.
