hello beautiful bees!
only you will understand. the ring should be here next week.
i cannotfrigginwait. We’ve been so slow with choosing the ring, and then once we did it’s been a 6-8 wk process of it getting made, now knowing it will actually be here next week I’m about to flip when i think about it! Plus my SO breaks my chops saying oh but you don’t know when you’ll get it after that. and I’m like AHHH IT BETTER BE SAME DAY IT COMES!!! No clue what he has in mind.
ok so just a random vent to beeville where people understand my eagerness! any comments on being in this delightfully awful spot are welcome, or any pics of rings like the one i’m waiting for, which is a classic cathedral solitaire. 🙂
Also curious for bees who picked out their rings themselves like I did, how did your SO’s then go about a proposal?
it will be this ring, but round and single prong:
k thanks for listening!!

@chillinchillin: Congrats on hopefully getting your ring soon! It’s really exciting.
I went with my now FI to look at rings on our 1 year which was back in feb. tried on different rings. I guess you could say we looked a few times before but it was very quick and i was undecided.
So our 1 year rolls around and he suggested we look at rings. So I picked a few out and the guy who worked there wrote everything down for him on a card and he carried it in his wallet and we didn’t look at rings ever again.
Fast forward to July he bought me my ring a day before his 29th birthday. (I find it funny because his birthday was the next day and didn’t think he’d be buying me a present) It took 11 days to come in and then the next day he asked me because he couldn’t wait anymore. He brought me up Mt. Washington on the bike because that’s my fav thing to do and he asked me at the summit which is the highest point on the mt in front of 20-30 strangers that I didn’t know.
I had no idea when he bought the ring until he told me. So yes I sorta picked out my ring, but it was still a complete surprise. So from the time we looked at rings until the time i actually got it. I waited 5 months and 8 days. LOL
Waiting is really hard, but it’s totally going to be worth it in the end.!!
Good luck and so happy for you!

- Wedding: October 2013 - Casa de España
@chillinchillin: I had to wait two weeks for my to get cleaned up and ready for the wedding. Now, I have to wait 9 more days so that it will look good in pics. My guess is, wear a stand in until you receive it. TIME FLIES.
