@LadyBlackheart:  That’s so sweet.  Sounds like you have a really good guy there–a real keeper!

No looking at rings for me. I put mulch down in my flower gardens. yippee.  Actually, the gardens look really good now, but certainly not as exciting as what you did.

@LadyBlackheart:  My ring is from Kay’s as well! 🙂 It’s also priced at less than your Sams’ ring. Forward progress is so exciting! Congrats!

@LadyBlackheart:  That’s adorable! I could just picture you “spying” on him then running all giddy to the bookstore!! Yay!

 

We didn’t officially look at rings I guess but I finally got the courage to ask him if he wouldn’t mind if I emailed him some links so he could get a taste of what I like. He said sure. So I sent him a couple links. And he responded telling me they were really nice and that he liked them. He told me which was his favorite and that he was glad I showed him what I liked 🙂

I was so nervous that he would put off by the fact that I wanted to show him rings. We’ve talked about marriage and a timeline and it’s going to happen within the next 6 months or so, but I was worried that showing him rings would be like me saying “buy THIS and do it NOW!” lol but he didn’t take it that way at all so that’s great!!

@LadyBlackheart:  hehehe so cute that he told you to go to the bookstore so he could go back to the jewelery store. I don’t know how you managed to contain yourself and not been like ” I SAW YOU GO INTO THE STORE!! ” hahaha. Well done! 🙂

 

Well, on Saturday night we had a family thing for SO, his cousin’s 13th, so it was a huge family dinner, SO is part Greek lol. I say huge, but like 20-25 people in reality. I really wasn’t feeling well (stupid period pain) but I sucked it up and went along and I’m SOOOO glad I did. One of his aunty’s kept feeding me wine, lol, but it was a really great chance to get to spend some time with his extended family. Anyway, we were going through our phones showing pics of our furbabies and SO saw our engagement ring design saved in mine and said to stop at it. I asked if he had shown his mum yet and he said “no, but you can show her now.” Then got her attention and we showed her, SO’s aunty and his stepdad. They all really loved it. SO spoke with them about the budget, which I’m not allowed to know because he has changed on what we agreed lol. And he also told them about the slight changes we want to do it. SO’s mum said I have to ask her for her son’s hand in marriage lol. I told her I would after he proposes lol. Then SO said we’d go above her to his Yaya (nana) cause for some reason she absolutely loves me, hahaha. It was a really good night and I’m super glad that his mum approves of the ring :).

@LadyBlackheart:  that is so adorable!!!!!! I love that you spied on him! I think I would have done the same thing 🙂 

My boyfriend has the ring already (just picked it up on the 23rd and wares to have it to ask my dad. Sooooo that’s what he did when we were at my parents cabin this weekend. They went out fishing while my mom and I relaxed on some rafts by the dock. Eeeee! It’s only a matter of time now 🙂
