- Wedding: October 2015
Yesterday was a great day! We went and looked at rings and I got to show him what kind of style I liked. It’s funny though, this whole thing was spur of the moment. Here’s how it actually happened.
We decided to go to Sam’s Club to see if it was worth it to get a membership. We explored the entire store and of course, I happened to walk by the jewelry section. I was very curious to see what they had so I told BF that I wanted to go look at something and why doesn’t he go look at the TVs? He agreed so then I went off by myself to look at the rings, just for curiosity’s sake.
I saw this really pretty ring that was $699 and I really liked it. After I got done perusing the rings, I went back to my BF. I was uncharacteristically quiet because I was thinking to myself and contemplating ways I could show BF what kind of rings I liked without pressuring him. I was also thinking and worrying about the fact that I know BF plans on using his grandmother’s ring to propose with. I’ve never seen his grandmother’s ring and I’m afraid that it won’t be my style at all. I like rings that are very simple, understated, small, and elegant. I was afraid his grandmother’s ring would be big and ostentatious. And I would hate for him to propose with a ring that I’m not that crazy about. Then of course, thinking that way made me feel so guilty because I should love whatever ring he gets me because it came from him, right? Sigh.
So BF, of course, noticed that I was being very quiet and kept asking me why. I lied and said I was just thinking about whether it was worth the money to get a membership to Sam’s Club. He knew I was lying though. He can read me like a book lol.
BF kept pushing and insisting that I tell him what was on my mind. So I finally broke down and admitted that I was worried that I wouldn’t like his grandmother’s ring because it might be too big or complicated. I told him that I liked something small and simple and that I saw this ring in the store that I really liked. I told him that I wished I could show him what kind of rings I liked just so that he could get an idea of what I like.
I asked him if it was okay if we could go look at rings today to give him an sense of what kind of style I like. And to my surprise, he said sure!
🙂 So we went to Kay’s in the local mall and checked out their selection. And I ended up falling in love with a ring from there and it was actually cheaper than the ring from Sam’s Club. And here’s the kicker.
After we left the store, BF suggested that I go to the bookstore while he went to the restroom. This immediately got me suspicious though because he had gone to the bathroom just a few hours earlier. But I didn’t voice my suspicions, I just agreed.
So we parted ways and I pretended to walk off to the bookstore but I actually hid a little bit to watch him. And bees, he did not go to the restroom. He went back into the jewelry store that we just left!! 🙂 🙂
Once I saw that he had gone back there, I hightailed it to the bookstore and played it totally cool when he came back. 🙂
I am so happy! Oh and about his grandmother’s ring? BF told me that there is actually several small diamonds in his grandmother’s ring and he was planning on using one of the small diamonds to propose with. So I’m thinking he will use the small diamond and put it on a new band for me. Yay! 🙂 I feel so much better now and I’m so glad that I had the courage yesterday to finally tell him my fears about the ring and him not knowing what kind of style I like. And now he knows what style I like! I can rest easy and relax now 🙂
So did anyone else look at rings this weekend? Or did you have a good waiting weekend overall?
