So, my bf and I had our Christmas together last night (because I was at home 10 hours away on Christmas day) and we opened our presents in front of the fire place… He opened his presents first, and then it was my turn. He pulls a Tiffany’s box out of his pocket (I know many of you bees don’t like Tiffany’s, but I am totally smitten). It was a beaded silver bracelet. I thought that was it, and then he pulls out another blue box (I think: could this be a ring?!). No, it was not a ring, but a gorgeous pair of pearl earrings (my birthstone). I am excited none the less and give him a kiss and thank him…. He apologizes and says that he’s sorry he couldn’t get me what he really wanted to (a ring) because he just baught a house last month and still has a pile of student loans. He then says that he is saving up for the big purchase! Needless to say I am excited because a) I do not discriminate against pretty jewlery (did I wear my pearls to bed last night, you betcha!) and b) he has already looked at rings and is starting to save! YAY!

Similar story, about 4 months before FI proposed, we were opening Christmas presents. The last present for me was a little jewelry box. He must have known what I was hoping for, because the first thing he said was “Don’t freak out, it isn’t a ring.”
LOL, Ahh, the romance!

aw! so cute!! and yay for pretty jewelry!! unfortunately for me (or maybe fortunately… i really can’t decide yet) my FI has VERY expensive tastes when it comes to jewelry so the only jewelry i have ever gotten from him is my e-ring because the other stuff he says he’d like to buy me he cant afford heh. I guess that will be good if we ever have a ton of money, but sometimes I think a nice (and not ridiculously expensive) pair of earrings might be nice. 🙂

Who doesn’t like Tiffany?!! I love Tiffany jewlery… well all jewlery! Congrats on the wonderful gifts and the peace of mind of “knowing” you are the one for him. Happy waiting!

Ahh, it’s the box. The box makes my heart flip over many times! Although I didn’t get a Tiffany e-ring (and I do love my e-ring) I can’t imagine how I’d be feeling after seeing two of those little boxes be handed to me!
