- Wedding: November 2014
On Monday night I fought with SO on the phone about waiting (short story is he gave me a timeline and didn’t keep it to be engaged May 2012, now he is saying he will hopefully do it in March 2013 but for sure no later than May 2013- we looked at rings in June 2012 and January 2013) because he hadn’t taken any steps besides ring shopping since June to make it happen and if he didn’t order the ring soon it may not be able to be done in time. I thought he would have at least put the deposit down in the last 6 weeks and I didn’t know why he hadn’t done it yet. I asked him if he hadn’t done it yet because deep down he didn’t want to and it wasn’t a good fight.
SO was supposed to come over Tuesday night (we don’t live together). I caught the tail-end of the President’s State of the Union with SO when I came home. SO started talking about the speech and hadn’t mentioned our fight the night before. I asked if he wanted to talk about our fight the night before, and he handed me a folded piece of paper…
it was his receipt for putting a deposit on the setting I wanted! I gave him a biggest bear hug! I was so excited! SO started telling me that the stone we had liked was sold to someone else (which I knew would happen because he was dragging his feet, so that was a little annoying) so now we will be getting a slightly smaller stone (1.25 instead of 1.33) but I am so so so happy and excited!! He was all cool about it like it wasn’t a big deal at all so I tried to act cool, but I think I had a goofy smile on my face the rest of the night.
We made jambalaya and corn bread (for Fat Tuesday) and had a quiet night in. It was perfect and I think I will remember the night of the State of the Union forever! Now I am going to do my best to shut it up!! It feels so good to know that he took that first step (FINALLY)!
