Well, first of all, THANK YOU ALL for your support throughout my last few rants lol. It’s difficult not having any close “gal pals” to talk to about my insecurities, but the Hive pulled through BIG TIME and made me realize that I’m NOT crazy, that what people say about me doesn’t flippin’ matter as long as I’m happy and future-FI is happy.
So the haters can shove it! Heehee
On to bigger news!
Mr. Big Truck and I went to the jewelers so I could show him the ring I picked out. I had a bit of anxiety on the way there, I was worried he wouldn’t like it.
But once we got there and I tried it on and showed it to him, I felt 100% better haha. The ring is so beautiful, I’m totally in love with it. He saw how much I loved it and put down the down payment deposit for it today! The ring should be ready some time next week!!
Holy. Shit. LOL
Won’t lie, Mr. BT had a biiiitttt of sticker shock once we left. The ring DOES cost quite a bit of money, BUT it’s within the budget he gave me, so I thought he’d be ok with it. He swears he IS okay with it, but that it’s a lot of money to spend all at once. Agreed.
I’m feeling a bit guilty, though. Did I pick something too extravagant? He gave me a budget and told me to go with it, find what I loved and even if it was out of budget, he’d “make it work”. I stayed within his budget (the jeweler even knocked off an extra $300 from what he originally told me was the price), I found a ring that is exactly what I want, that I am completely in love with. But it IS a lot of money. I make more salary-wise than he does, and I’ve told him that I have NO PROBLEM chipping in and helping pay for the ring, but he’s totally against that.
I’m a little peeved… He GAVE me a number, we spent significantly LESS than that number, but he’s still upset. I get it, though. It’s a lot of money, and there’s probably a little bit of committment-phobia hitting him. It’ll pass.
Anyway, just wanted to share the good news!!!!!!!!! Even though he might pick up the ring next week, I don’t think I’ll be getting it for a few months. We’re going on vacation to Disney in November, I think that’s when he’s gonna propose.
BUT… I took some pics of the ring w/ my cell phone, so hopefully that’ll sustain me for awhile haha. Once I get home (I’m at Mr. BT’s right now), I’ll post the pics for you guys!
The whole idea of being engaged and starting wedding planning is just starting to hit me. Can’t wait!!
