- Wedding: October 2014
I’ll admit it, I suck at waiting! I am hounding him every other day about my ring. He thinks it’s cute (I guess) because he never seems frustrated and he always plays along. He sometimes brings the ring up himself.
A little background: We’ve been dating about a year and a half. We dated back in 2002 for a brief while but I was in grad school and it was too hectic. Fast forward to 2012 we found our way back together and no way am I letting him go this time!!! As a joke, in Feb. 2013 we went to look a rings. I picked the one I liked and the sales lady wrote it down. We laughed and talked about how “one day” we would get engaged. Well, about two weeks ago he told me he was going to get the ring!!! Being the control freak that I am, I told him to let me go back to the store to look at the ring again because we were “joking” the first time. I went back to the store and the jeweler showed me the ring again. SO had already contacted the jeweler and was supposed to come in the store the very next day. I tried on the ring again and loved it however I told the Jeweler to please relay to my SO that I wanted the center stone upgraded. He went in the store, paid for the ring (with the upgrade, yay!) and my ring was sent out to get the center stone replaced. According to the jeweler, they had to replace the head because the original setting was made to hold a max .75 center stone. I was told this would take approx. a week and a half.
Fast forward to NOW, I don’t know if the ring is back, if he has the ring, if it looks right, etc…. I have been asking so much, I can’t stop myself. He won’t tell me but I am pretty certain the proposal will come between now and Christmas…..HELP! He is planning us a trip to the mountains before Thanksgiving..could it be? I am such a control freak, I have no control over this and I’m freaking out! I have no clue what to do with myself!!!
