I’ve been lurking lately and haven’t really posted a bunch, but the last time I did it was about SO had been hinting that I knew what he was getting me for my birthday this year. A while ago we had talked and he had mentioned that he thought we might be engaged by the time we go to his good friend’s wedding in October. Well SO is pretty much head over heels in love with his car and decided to spend close to $8,000 fixing it up (had some minor body damage & paint chips) and adding a supercharger to his engine. When he first told me that he was doing this I was a little disappointed, because I knew it would prolong the wait for my “sparkly”. He never does a lot for himself and he worked hard to be able to put all this into his car, so I just let it go, I know it’s going to happen one day. He has even said it’s a matter of when not if.
Today he was talking about his car, and I mentioned something about him putting a new engine into his car. He flat out said that he’s going to be buying an engagement ring before he does any more to his car. (Exciting!) Then he said that he wanted to be open about the purchase because he wants me to have what I love. He said that he didn’t really know what he would be spending, I rolled my eyes at this. We have gone in person to try on and look at rings twice, and we have looked online together a bunch (so he knows). I told him that the guy gave him the pricing for the setting I tried on and we both loved, and that the cost of the moissonite center stone is going to depend on size. Now he wants to go back and see what size looks good on my hand. (He wants to try 1.5, 1.75, and 2) He said that his tax return is probably going to be used to purchase my ring.
I am beyond happy that it is going to happend, but a little disappointed that it’s not happening when I orginally thought it was going to. It’s almost a relief because now I feel like I can go back to enjoying our relationship, without thinking that it’s going to happen every time he’s just being sweet. Don’t get me wrong I would marry him today if he asked. I guess I just have a few mixed emotions, but above everything I’m just happy that I have him, and we can talk openly about getting engaged. Am I crazy for having this mixed emotions?? Sorry this is so long, whoops! But thanks for sticking it out and reading it all bees!
