- Wedding: June 2014
So, I thought SO was going to propose on our trip to Florida (literally just walked in the door an hour ago), because he asked my dad’s permission on our trip to their place just before Christmas and I am a total snoop so I knew he had the ring. I know, I know. BAD WAITING BEE! *slaps back of hand*
Anywho, while we were there and having a lovely night out walking along a pier at night and having a couple of drinks, it comes up in conversation…because I bring it up…dur…and to my surprise, SO actually answered a series of questions truthfully. He likes to smile and shrug whenever I’ve asked him about it just to get a rise out of me, so this has literally NEVER happened. He said he was planning on proposing on this trip, but when he thought about airport security potentially opening his bag (we just had carry-ons) and me seeing the ring, he didn’t want to risk it. He then said that he didn’t get the ring we had looked at at a chain store but that he used a connection through his boss’s friend to get it at a family jeweller (which I had suspected because he mentioned it about 6 months ago and his boss is the nicest guy ever and would totally pull strings to get him a deal). He also said it had to be made, but I don’t know if that means it’s custom, or that he picked the stone and setting separately.
I can’t tell you bees how much a relief it was just to have a frank conversation about it for once! I’m not even anxious about when it’s going to happen now because I know it will be soon. Well…on second thought, you probably all know how I feel! All in all, we had a great trip, so no disappointment here. My parents and two of my siblings were with us and after I told my mom about our conversation, she said I had better “let everyone else off the hook”, because they all thought he was going to propose on the trip 🙂
PS, having a great time reading all the V-Day proposal stories!! Congrats to you newly engaged bees!!
