Hehe, yes I know, I spelled ‘carats’ wrong. But that’s not the point. The POINT is, is that J knows his carats!! So we’re washing the dishes with the news blasting loud on the tv, and they’re talking about Will & Kate, and her engagement ring. They mentioned about how many carats it was, and J says: “18 carats!?! That’s huge! Especially because the royal family is in debt…”
That’s when I found the opportunity to mention what I liked and didn’t like in rings. I told him: “Ya, 18 carats is ridiculous. TWO carats is ridiculous, in my opinion anyway”.
So… Sunday he’s talkin’ about how someone should propose via skyplane and writing “will you marry me” in the sky with smoke, and tonight he’s talkin’ about CARATS? Someone’s got engagement on the brain big time. I don’t mention wedding/engagement stuff anymore unless HE brings it up. It was hard at first, but I found other things to occupy my mind with. But these things that he’s been saying lately have dusted off the rat and wheel in my brain again… It’s squeekin’ away!

I think it’s always a major thumbs up when HE is the one who brings up the engagement topic. Maybe you should start packing the fridge with carrots to spur some more carat talk! 🙂

@aberry: Haha, I totally should… Throw in some carrots into salads, etc. Maybe some baby carrots… Wait. Maybe not ‘baby’ carrots. Not yet, lol. He’s probably thinking (or doing something) about engagement lately because we plan on moving soon and he knows I’m not signing anything until we’re engaged.

lol – somehow I was worried this post was going to be about horses and carrots, not rings and carats 😛
Got my attention – good for you he’s talking about it. 🙂

Sounds like it’s going to happen for you soon!! I bet he’s got the ring already, if he knows you’re moving soon he’s gonna need it on hand at the drop of a hat since signing paperwork for an apartment happens so fast after you find a place!

I think it’s so cute that he is flaunting his knowledge.
Sounds like something will happen soon.
