Yea, I’m a dork and sometimes I can’t see the darn forest for the trees. I think far too much and my sis and bff just told me that last night.
So I’m over at T’s and we go to dinner. At dinner he asks me about (GGSB will understand this so very much!) if I am going to get my watch (tag) repaired and it’s a small repair involving the crown on the side of it and I’ve kinda forgotten about it. My sis and bil gave it to me 2 christmases ago. And what I was going to do about my pearl and gemstone necklace that broke (and fell all over the table) at the ATL bee meetup 2 weekends ago. I said that it didn’t need to be restrung at a jewellers b/c it’s not like my cultured pearl necklace and that it was just strung on, no intricate things need to be done.
He then says “well I’ve found a jeweller who takes care of the watch and pearl thing for you and you need to go over there or we do so they can fix them.” Ladies, the last thing this guy thinks of is jewelry. Usually. I said “so is it at your friends’ jewelry store?” He said Nah. I think this one has more to choose from (???). So I am thinking all watches here and then he told me where he was thinking we should go. I said “oh no..I shouldn’t go there b/c it’s too expensive. They’ll charge an arm and a leg for my watch to be repaired and I’m not gonna pay that much.” He looks at me wierdly. Rather confused. Then is quiet.
I told my sis and bff about it and (they both know about the watch) they said. “Hon, he’s trying to get you INSIDE the damn store.” I said but it’s not the one his friend owns. They said maybe he wants something different. My bff googled the store while we were talking on the phone and the first thing that comes up is E rings. She then says..well they carry that Memoire ring you’ve lusted over for so long and a few others you like. Btw, they DON’T have that brand at his buds’ store. Geez I can’t believe it. The man says he’s wanting to go to a jewelry store with you, one that carries gorgeous rings and designers we like and you say it’s too expensive. Have you wondered why all of a sudden he needs to get you to go to THIS jewelry store? Inside any jewelry store? He could bring your watch in and drop the thing off and you don’t even need to come with him to do that. “
I sat there, dumbfounded and realized oh dear. I screwed up. So this am I texted T and said “ok, I’ll go to the store w/you. They couldn’t charge that much to repair my watch could they?”.
My sis and bff have been laughing at me all day. I have been officially dubbed “the dorky OVERthinker”.

Ha ha ha ha! Love that! That is so cute that he’s trying (and apparently succeeding) in trying to be sneaky.
My Boy is just completely oblivious to the fact that I want to go ring shopping… “Boyfriend, is there anything you’d like to do after we go to dinner for our anniversary?” “Nope, unless you can think of anything” Me thinking “Yes, yes there IS you idiot!”

That’s sweet … I wouldn’t have realized it either, to tell you the truth … I’d just be like “I’ll do it when I do it” and look at him all funny wondering why the heck he was insisting on me going there.
Good luck – hope it goes well!

(in honor of football season) she fumbles recovers and scores!! you can shoot him a text and say something like you think it’s a great idea to check out the prices to fix the watch because you really miss having it and you wanted to wear your necklace on thanksgiving or halloween because you wanted to be donna reed so it may be a good idea to get it fixed as well!!

Heh. Back before my fiance proposed, I stumbled across a business card he had, and he practically vaulted across the room to get it out of my hands before I could read it. After I got my ring, he told me that the card was for the jeweler he used 🙂 Have fun at the store!

lol, are you doing the christmas challenge? if so, you’ve done a great job keeping the wedding talk off your mind!

I AM doing a good job of keeping the non-ring talk down so well that I totally DID NOT THINK about the part of going to a jeweler. Just literally slipped my mind.
He’s really sweet. I did shoot him a text today that said I would be fine going there and that it couldn’t cost too much to fix the crown on my watch. He then shot me another back saying “hope you’re having a good day. That’s good. Love you”.
He’s a sweetie. But we’ll see if it is indeed the ring issue. He knows I think what size I am (already checked out that one). He called earlier and said “well rememberone of your your RT hand rings had a teeny diamond missing recently. How about they look at that too? (it’s a micro pave diamond that went missing about 2 mos ago). So he wants to have them look at my ring now. Interesting.
A very high end jeweler and he wants me to do all this stuff..and while I’m there..who knows what he’s gonna pull. But he’s got until Jan 1 to do it.

Oh bff is good. Way good. She is the sneaky one. And my sis was wondering why in the hell would T want me to take my jewelry to such an expensive jewelry store in the first place. It just didn’t make sense. Now they’re imho fair on prices, just have a very pricey inventory if you get what I’m saying. They have JB Star (love them) and of course Memoire (precious prong and purity collection I heart!). And of course they have a version of the Cartier that I love too!
