- Wedding: September 2013
Okay, I’m pretty sure no one cares…or remembers me.
I decided to take a break because I was nowhere near getting a ring on my finger and posting on Weddingbee was literally driving me crazy and fueling unnecessary obsession. I’ve been lurking a smidge but haven’t posted anything in nearly a year.
I guess you can say I’m finally officially waiting.
We had a few things we had to get done first…
1) BF had to get a good job with benefits (Check Dec. 2011)
2) BF had to buy a new car since the old one is a POS with no air conditioning (Check May 2012)
3) BF and yours truly needed to move in together (Check May 2012)
We’ve been living together for a whole two weeks and it’s going well. Oh, and a week before we moved in together (and mere hours before the car purchase) we went RING SHOPPING.
Now, I did some prodding to make this happen. We were going to the auto mall, which happened to be across the street from Shane Co. I made the joke that we could build up his “No” muscle if we went to Shane Co. first. BF said: “If you buy me Taco Bell, we can go to Shane Co.”
We went; we saw. I walked away a smidge sadder than when I walked in and the excitement has worn off. Nothing was purchased. It’s going to be weird when I’m not waiting to get engaged anymore. Ring shopping actually caused a breakdown of the no muscle because the BF bought the car.
He ended up getting a more economical car than he was originally going to get. He told me it was like an unofficial engagement because it was proof that our future together was more important than a car with a ginormous car payment.
So, now I feel like I’m officially waiting. 🙂
