My poor, sweet Mr. LR. He called me on the way home from work today and just sounded so super down. I asked him what was wrong and he told me he had just had a terrible day. Of course, I asked him what was wrong, being the wonderful, sweet girlfriend I am (it’s Christmas people, and Santa IS watching ). He told me about some stuff at work that frustrated him and then proceeded to say “and some other things.” Well, then I said “oh what other things, you can tell me!”, thinking it was something else like work. He told me he couldn’t tell me about it and I said, “oh this is about my ring then?”. He then said that he “couldn’t and wouldn’t tell me details but that he was promised a diamond by his jeweler and their diamond distributor had sold that diamond to someone else.” Knowing what I know about him, that meant it was the diamond he was going to buy. I know there is a second diamond but the other one was perfect it seems. He was going to ok this diamond and pick it up this week (yes, I snooped. judge me.)
My reaction on the inside: “THOSE MOTHER F#$%^ERS SOLD MY DIAMOND!! TAR AND FEATHER!!!!!!”
My reaction on the outside: “Oh honey, I’m so sorry that happened, but there’s no reason to stress! It’s ok if it takes a little longer, and I’m sorry you’re upset about it, but you’ll find something even better. Everything will be perfect, you’ll see! On a side note, I would see about getting a discount since they screwed up”
He’s still upset about it, not that I blame him, and I’m upset for him (and me lol).
Just wanted to share the latest news of my neverending postponements. Grrr!!! Do y’all think I reacted decently? I tried to hide my dissappointment!

Well he could have just said that to throw you off… but yes I think you reacted appropriately. 🙂

@2impatient: Oh I so wish that was true, but he was seriously so down about it that I don’t think he was making it up to throw me off. He doesn’t know I know anything about the ring, so there would be no reason to do that. He did tell me the only reason he told me was so I wouldn’t expect it right after Christmas, so maybe he is. I doubt it though, he was so upset!

Awwww! Well in that case, I think you DEFINITELY acted appropriately. I’m assuming you would love a proposal regardless, so at least now that he doesn’t think you’ll overreact and reject him if the ring isn’t “perfect” (I’m sure it will still be amazing!). Anyway, you’re lucky to have a guy that cares that much about you and an awesome proposal!

@LaviniaRose2013:you were an excellent master of disguise!!
i THINK IT´S VERY SWEET YOUR SO HAD SUCH HIGH HOPES FOR THAT PARTICULAR DIAMOND, knowing it makes him so sad not to have gotten it in the end, must mean he really really was exited to propose =) i hope he finds another “perfect” diamond soon =), luckily, the most important thing is his willingness to commit to you =) you have to be extremely happy for that…the right diamond will find him i´m sure.

@LaviniaRose2013: hahaha i just want to approve of your shameless “Yes I snooped. Judge me.” line. Yep, I’m the same.

@LaviniaRose2013: I think he’s just trying to throw you off the trail. That doesn’t sound right that a jeweler would “promise” a potential client a ring without some sort of down payment, etc. Crossing my fingers for you!

Personally, my favorite part is your internal reaction :):
“THOSE MOTHER F#$%^ERS SOLD MY DIAMOND!! TAR AND FEATHER!!!!!!”
On the other hand, I think you reacted beautifully on the outside. So sorry for the frustrating delay! 🙁

LOL, this is cute and funny. I love your internal reaction, that is exactly what I would have felt. It is very sweet that he is so upset that the diamond he wanted to buy for you was given to someone else. I love when men put that much thought and effort into what they are doing for us ladies!
Then again, men are ALWAYS trying to throw us off because they want things to be a surprise and he may have found out that you were on his trail (not judging you :))

@LaviniaRose2013: Ahhh, I love the “TAR AND FEATHER!!!” reaction!!! Might have to steal that…
That is so cute but sad that he was so down about it. Was it a verbal agreement? I hope he finds a diamond he deems to be just as perfect for you!!!

Thank you so much ladies!!! hahah I tried to mask my reaction. Thank goodness he did this through a phone call!
UPDATE!! I snooped again because he was super happy today when he got home from work, and when I asked if everything had been resolved with the jeweler he told me that he “didn’t have time” today to deal with it. Now, if you knew Mr. LR in real life, you’d know that was a lie. He’s not the type to put something off like that.
Well, I found out from my snooping that they were able to get the diamond!! He’s going to the jeweler Saturday to make final decisions (we hope!). The saleslady has been working very hard on my ring because she knew they messed up. Apparently there was a miscommunication with the diamond distributor or something. I’m just glad it was resolved!!
Mr. LR also slipped up and said he had put money on my ring. We were joking around about a friend of mine who is going NUTS waiting, and she’s putting a lot of pressure on her boyfriend. He was like (jokingly by the way) “I’d send your ring back and get a refund if you acted like that! He’s never gonna do it now”. I responded “oh please, you haven’t spent any money on my ring yet so there’s nothing to send back!”. He said “bullsh!t I haven’t!”. He then realized his error when I started smiling and bouncing, but he was very excited/happy when I was like “we’re going to get married one day! it’s happening yay!”
So that’s my update! I am SO excited, and I don’t even care what the diamond looks like because I am just ecstatic that Mr. LR loves me so much and that he cares so much about creating the most perfect ring for me, without expecting anything in return except for my happiness. I am a very lucky lady! Plus, I’m getting a Christmas present too! 🙂
On a side note, I will no longer be snooping because I want everything to be a surprise now. I am glad I know it won’t be coming for Christmas, so there is no added pressure, but I do know it’s coming soon! 🙂
