It’s an Emerald Engagement Ring for The Office’s Angela Kinsey
While some of us may still be rooting for snarky Angela to hook up with dweeby Dwight, the former Office star has her own love story happening IRL. Revealing that she’s just become engaged, Angela Kinsey is showing off a somewhat non-traditional engagement ring. Although diamonds are the usual choice — anything from minimalist diamond engagement rings to the whopper diamond ring that Cara Delevingne is wearing these days — if you’re willing to go for a somewhat different and totally stunning choice, emerald engagement rings can bring a touch of color to your symbol of evergreen love, which is just what Angela’s fella opted for.
Posting the happy pic to her Instagram account, Angela revealed the story behind the sweet proposal. “#tbt to earlier this week. We were going out to dinner and my daughter said that first she wanted to show me the fort in the backyard that she and my boyfriend’s sons had been working on. She led me outside and there was a blanket by the pool and she said I had to sit on it.” This is already just so adorable.
She continued, saying, “His sons brought me flowers and then he came around the corner with a ring. He had called my mom and asked for her blessing…that would have made my Dad so happy. He proposed and I said yes…The kids made me cards and pictures and I cried. I cried that happy ugly cry. #gonnagethitched.”
And why an emerald? “The ring is an emerald…all three of our kids’ birthstone.” Love, love, love!
44-year-old Angela and 38-year-old Josh rarely make appearances on her Instagram account, but when they do, they certainly make a super-cute couple.
Congratulations, Angela and Josh!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
