(Edited … to say, wow… I sound like a crazypants. Maybe I should hit the hay! )
I mentioned last week about how I thought my ring had been ordered or at the very least, he was inquiring about it. I also confessed to CyberStalking the Etsy seller’s site to see if my ring has been made or sold.
I’m terrible at keeping things from my SO (I might talk about weddingbee, rings, engagements and ZOMGAREYOUEVERGOINGTOENGAGEMEORWHAT!? way more than I should) and confessed to stalking the etsy site. I would often talk about the site, mention what was purchased, whatever. The first time I mentioned it, he quizzed me on all the details. I explained that I could see what items had sold, but not who purchased them. He seemed to breath a sigh of relief. (Or I told myself he did)
Flash forward to this evening… I was on the computer and let out a sigh. SO asked, “What’s wrong babe? More people buying your ring? Did someone just buy one?”
And just like that… my crazy, waiting to be engaged heart skipped a beat while my brain shouted, “Stay calm! Play stupid.”
I’m being crazy. Aren’t I? He was probably just making conversation .. talking about something he knew I’d want to talk about. OR …. he bought the dang thing and was being playful.
The more I think about what I’m typing, the crazier I think I am. I’m expecting loads of, “Would you just stop nagging and let him surprise you already!” responses. But hey, if I can’t talk about this kind of stuff on the “waiting” board on weddingbee….

I’ve been following your posts, and you are SO NOT over reacting!!! I know if I was in your shoes I would completly be doing the same… and I would be super temped to contact the seller myself (with out letting her know my link to it, of course) just to see what the avaliblity of the ring is… but then, you dont want to get into a bidding war or somthing LMAO
Breath!!! You know there’s a really, really good chance everything is in the works, that in it self is a huge step in the right direction!!
oh- and your- ZOMGAREYOUEVERGOINGTOENGAGEMEORWHAT!? ” so made me spit up my drink on my keyboard!!!!

OOOOH and this morning, while getting ready for work, he was playing with my ring finger and commenting how I was missing some “bling” there!
If he DID purchase the ring, it would be coming from Canada and according to her site standard shipping is about a week but he could choose to expedite it … but I’m sure he wouldn’t do that..would he?

Do you have a picture of the ring? I’d love to see it! For your sake, I hope he was just teasing and has purchased it for you. Fingers crossed!

Haha, I just wanted to say I appreciate your ZOMGAREYOUEVERGOINGTOENGAGEMEORWHAT!? SO SO SO much!!! I totally went through that and you are SO not crazy! I went through many ups and downs and telling myself not to freak out anytime he said anything relatively nice or hinting (when he usually wasn’t hinting, like ever, as it still took another 6 months for it to actually happen!). Ooooh if only they knew what they did to us ladies!
