I promised you guys an update!
As I mentiond in my previous post, my boyfriend slept on the couch last night. So I woke him up this morning with kisses and told him I was sorry for fighting with him. He apologized also and said he felt pretty bad about it all night.
He said he was only upset because my surprise was completely ruined. Huh? I said what surprise? Then he gave me a look like, “Don’t play dumb.” But I had no idea what he was talking about. So finally he said, “The folder! The bank statement was in the folder with the ring ideas in it. I know you saw it, there’s no way you could’ve missed it.”
I told him I had no idea what he was talking about because I didn’t notice a folder, let alone open a folder so the bank statement must have fallen out. He’s was like, “Oh.”
He explained that he was secretly saving the money so that he could take me on a vacation and surprise me with an engagement ring.
I feel so guilty! I completely ruined his surprise. But he did show me the engagement ring ideas and I LOVE THEM!!!!!
So that’s the update! We’re both happy now. We discussed the money issues and we’re totally on the same page. This was a huge misunderstanding and we both blew it way out of proportion and we realize that now. Oh, and I made him promise me that he’ll never sleep on the couch like that again. haha.
Thank you bees for all your help!

I should also say that he told me that we could use the extra money that’s left over and put it towards our goals. So that will give us a huge headstart! I’m so excited!

I’m so happy to hear that it was just a surprise! Don’t feel guilty, you weren’t snooping, and it was better you were up front with him rather than being miserable while holding that in!

@AB Bride: Me too! I’m so relieved! I had the worst thoughts last night. He showed me the folder and I was really taken aback by how much research he’s done, especially since he’s never hinted that he was looking. Once in a great while, I’ll leave bridal magazines laying around with ring ideas… apparently he got the hint!

@GirlPower: What a happy ending to your stresses and the ‘red flag’ that many people mentioned in your previous thread. Glad it is sorted out and fx for that vacation to be sometime soon
