So long story short, I have found my dream ring and boyfriend agrees that it most likely will be the one he gets me.
Last night we were chatting about finances and how that would include a ring. We have some other larger purchases to make and we are looking at where to trim the fat and whatnot in order to save $$$.
Anyway, we were talking about my dream ring. When I first showed it to him a few weeks ago he had me save the link and info in a folder he told me to on his computer. The place where he said he would remember it. Last night he says “Oh hey. About that ring. Where did you save the information?” *palm to forehead*
Seriously sweetie? No biggie….but it’s not in a folder within a folder within a folder within a folder. I joked on here about setting it as a desktop background on his computer….but… I may not be joking anymore. lol
(why does he want to make me worry like this!? lol)
Anyone have recent SO goofs?

- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
“I bought you a house” that’s a good engagement gift, right?” (jokingly)
Me– “umm sweetie, the downpayment was from my grandmother…:P” Yes he does pay the mortgage but pfftt
He used to try to throw me off track by talking about buying snowmobiles and things… but it backfired horribly and led to one very upset Sherryberry and one very sorry SO.

@sherryberry: So he tried to claim some other person’s gift as his engagement gift to you? Niiiiiiiiice. lol
Luckily my guy doesn’t try and throw me off with pretend purchases for himself. He just throws me off by telling me he can’t think of anything he wants to save for!

@sherryberry: Mine did that too… started talking about buying a second car and all this other expensive stuff… I got very upset and he doesnt do that anymore… I even got him to stop joking around about enagement until it actaully happens… Its a tiny bit easier to get through the waiting period now but still very hard…

boys…. i tell ya! i seriously hope mine is throwing me off with the “i’m not ready”, “we’ve a got a good thing going, what’s the rush?” nonsense, but sadly i think he’s right. and sadly, i think i’m starting to agree with him….

@Tunacupcakes:Basically… guys are kinda clueless and unfortunately we notice every single little detail in a ring. so it matters to us, and rightly so…. and I believe that a lot of them see dollar signs and us stamping our feet when they think of all things sparkly
