- Wedding: January 2015
Well, a little background story… FINALLY! I got engaged! I knew it was going to happen, just not so soon! Totally shocked! Which is what he was going for, obviously. It was just a total surprise because I had no idea he had opened a new savings acct!!! He kept telling me “as soon as I have the money! I’m putting a ring on that finger!” “Etc,etc,etc.”
Well, about 2.5 weeks ago, a bunch of my family and us went camping, and he proposed!!! Out of nowhere! We got there and after about 30 min, went to go explore, I sat down grabbed a cigarette and he said, “This may make for a s***ty story, but I can’t wait any longer!” and the rest followed as usual. I was so in shock, of course I said yes and put the beautiful ring on!
Well, when we got back, it all started to kinda sink in, and I hate feeling this way. I haven’t brought this up to anyone yet, figured I’d get some outsiders oppinions first. We have a very open relationship, been looking at rings for about 1-1.5 years now. I feel in LOVE with the moissanite rings, and he said he did too! They looked right, price was very right for us!! Lol, he would say well then i’m not putting anything smaller than 1 ct on your finger. Well i showed him a specific one, halo kinda antique style!!! showed it to him and he seemed really excited, would even look on his own, of course all the while, “once i have the money, definitely!” I told him, this is definitely the style I want, halo, so he could get a smaller stone .5 ct, and i would still have the bling I want. And he agreed with me. 😀 I was so excited to have finally found the one!! I’m very picky so that doesn’t happen too often. Lol
So, it has sunk in, that i now have a simple solitaire. Not anything like the ring we have looked at for the past year. It is very pretty! I love it, don’t get me wrong, I just can’t help but feel kinda cheated, Lol. You know, like having the one I wanted dangled in front of me for so long.
Well he ended up getting me a .52 ct Leo solitaire. Well he can be kinda air headed and say, and do slightly stupid things like forgot to tke reciept out of the care pamphlet, WOW! He knew I would be upset about how much he spent, and I kinda was, he CANT afford that! Even with what he had saved. Also, I asked him very politely and kinda playfull, “did they have any halos?” and he said “I dont know, I didn’t think to ask.” and “I know it’s not the one you wanted, but I couldn’t get you a fake diamond.” I chose quality over quantity for you.” Which is very sweet, and the ring is beautiful! but I just feel dissapointed, that he never said anything to me, if he didn’t want to get me the one we looked at for so long, why wouldn’t he say anything? Ugh It will just take some getting used to I guess!
I made it smaller 😀
