AAAAHhh! I may be completely wrong (it’s been known to happen!) but I’m pretty sure my boyfriend is out buying my ring right now. Here’s the facts:
He told me last month that he would be using his Xmas bonus for the ring, and that he would get it sometime after Dec 1.
Yesterday, my future SIL told me that her husband (boyfriend’s brother) was going shopping today and taking BF along. Got excited at this point, but as it could be that the husband was buying HER a present and taking him, I tried not to get my hopes up.
After work yesterday, BF tells me that him and this same brother have decided to go to the shooting range this morning, just a guys thing.
So what I think happened is they forgot to get their stories straight!
Anyone think I’m not off base thinking I may be getting my ring soon? 🙂

Well it does sound like it may be possible. I just don’t want you to get your hope up just in case. Plenty of guys have given their girls here timelines only to go far past it. Well keep us updated no matter what happens.

Sounds promising! It is possible they really are just having a boys morning, but it does seem like it could be the perfect cover. The fact that he told you he would using his xmas bonus and would get it after Dec. 1 are both strong indicators as well, I think!
Hopefully not too much longer now! Did you help him pick the ring, or is he chosing it himself?

Thanks guys!! I’m trying very hard not to get my hopes up TOO much, but I can hope!
@miss ranunculus – We went and looked at rings about a month ago and I picked out a few; but I left the final decision up to him 🙂

Thank you! Judging from what his family was saying last night, I’m pretty positive he at least went and ordered it. For example, when BF got home yesterday he said they went to Academy, but his brother told me he went to Academy alone the day before that. They really need to talk to each other before talking to me haha! Anyways, things like that, and he mysteriously has the money for a deposit on our new apartment when last week we were down to our last 50$.
However, I heard through the family grapevine that my excitement is getting in the way of him planning something really special (ooops). SO I have made a pact with myself and him to completely drop all mention of ring and wedding, and to just enjoy being together. When it happens it happens! 🙂
