Everytime SO and I are watching tv, jewelry commercials for engagement rings comes on. Do you see those? What do you do when they come on? I try to avoid the tv and start talking or I get up and leave the room. it’s like that “uncomfortable silence” in the room! LOL I’ve been trying to avoid the conversation the past few weeks unless he brings it up.

I’m engaged now, but it’s only been two months and I understand! I have to tell you my FI said he’s happy he proposed before the holidays because he couldn’t take my “comments” during those another year. Now I’m all like “aww” and he rolls his eyes like yeah last year she was a bitch.

@beachbumbee: LOL! I got engaged over the past year and have been doing the same thing. The commercials drove him nuts before but now I’m all “awww” when they come on. 🙂

A few weeks ago SO and I were doing laundry and everytime we went downstairs to check it a jewelry store commercial would be playing on the radio. I started joking and telling him instead of making gifts this year he should buy me an engagement ring since all the stores are having such great deals right now! He knows I’m just joking, though.

They’re funny, he always says something – this morning while we were watching the news the one where the guy proposes on an airplane came on and he was like “So be careful when we get on airplanes.” – then he goes on a rant about how gross and unromantic airplanes are and that the dude should have waited till they got to where they were going or had a moment alone. I think he dislikes the one where the guy does it in in the jewelry store when they are “trying on rings” even more.
He likes teasing me about them but he never thinks the actual proposals are any good. I take this as a good sign. Hopefully.

So funny, last night one of the commercials came up and my SO took his hand and covered my eyes! We both got a good laugh of it 🙂 He keeps saying “not this year!” but it’s driving me crazy because he already has the ring. 😛

The commercials are killing me too! I don’t know if y’all watch football but my BF and I are big into it and it seems like every other commercial during football is about rings!

This is the first year I’ve really noticed how often those commercials come on. I was complaining about them to SO the other day (after yet another commercial came on while we were watching TV) and he was just like “Well, babe, it’s that time of year” Ughh not helpful! Lol
