I am so excited! He bought the ring yesterday from James Allen. It’s a 1.02-1.04 (don’t remember, who cares) solitaire in a tiffany-style 6 prong knife edge platinum band!
Why do I know all this? He let slip 3 months ago that he was going with James Allen and he knew I wanted a 6 prong so I deduced the band. We actually looked at 3 stones yesterday at the James Allen call center in Maryland. Jason’s deal was that he would let me pick between the 3 stones he chose (all were 1.0X carat, H-J, SI1-I1, Excellent cut) on the grounds that I couldn’t tell ANY of my friends or my sister. It’s driving me bonkers so I had to share with the hive.
Go figure the band takes 2 weeks to make and ship because it’s hand pulled platinum but ahhhhh so excited! He said he’s proposing before the end of the month. I’ve given my 30 days notice at the townhouse I’m renting and started moving in to his place. We’re also looking for a house.
Oh oh oh yesterday we sat down and cranked out a pre-emptive guest list- 104 people we absolutely want to invite and 50 maybes (all including +1’s). It’s happening! It’s all happening!

@MrsBroccoli:I’m in the same boat. In fact, I’m quite sure he HAS the ring by now. Now everytime you go out to dinner you are going to be waiting for him to drop to one knee! I find myself trying to arrange romantic moments so that he might be inspired! It’s all so exciting but Lord it’s hard to wait once you know it is on the way! 🙂

Aieeee… so the ring is supposed to be done by Oct 19th. I just found out that my childhood best friend/future MOH (she doesn’t know it yet but my SO knows it.. we have already picked our wedding party) is going to be in town on Oct 21st! We’re going to be going to dinner with her, her boyfriend, and another childhood friend and then off to an acquaintence’s party. SOOOO EXCITED (and hopeful). The only other thing we’re doing that weekend is the University of Maryland alum. tailgate and I’m the driver haha.
