So, I’ve been doing really good with my faux-valentines challenge – ever since Christmas and FI and I getting unofficially engaged, I’ve not said a peep to him about getting the ring reset, and him surprising me with it. (If you recall, he proposed with a family heirloom that wasn’t at all my style, so we’re sort of secretively engaged until he gets it reset and plans a surprise to give it to me) I gave him the info he needed about the new setting I wanted, but other than that, I haven’t said a word. It hasn’t been easy, but ever since my mini-waiting-meltdown affected his choice to propose early, I’ve been trying to keep myself under control and be patient.
I’ve had my eyes open looking for any possible clues or hints, and after a month of nothing, he’s finally dropping some hints I think!!
The other night, over Skype, he disappeared for a while – when he came back he said he was “having a religious experience” with the CD he was making me. He and I are both really passionate about music, and all through our relationship we’ve made each other cd mixes for various occasions (or just because). He told me he had found the perfect song to put on the mix that perfectly describes the way he feels about me. He gave me a sneak preview of one track (I Can’t Fight This Feeling – REO Speedwagon) but wouldn’t say much else. He did almost play another track, but then reconsidered saying something like “I can’t play any more of this or it will give…” It was as if he was going to say “it will give away the surprise.” EEK! I like surprises in general, but I was thinking to myself, “what if this CD has something to do with his proposal?!”
Then, over the weekend he let it slip that he had gotten an official appraisal on his grandmother’s ring (!) I had been curious about the stats on the center stone, but was more exicted about hearing this because I hope it hints at him having taken the ring to the jewlers so the new setting could be made. Of course, he could have just gotten it appraised, but I can’t help but hope it means my ring has been made!
He also hinted last night about how he has 2 presents for me – one for Valentine’s day and one not. He wouldn’t say anything else, but I’m just so excited! He does little surprises like this for me often, which I love, but I am just really, really hoping he got the ring reset and will propose officially when I visit him this month. (I leave a week from tomorrow!)
Thanks for listening, bees! I’m just so anxious and excited to be officially engaged and for it not to be a secret anymore – Here’s hoping I’m not reading all of these hints completely wrong!
