Well, even though I’ve been stalking these boards forever, I swore I wouldn’t post until I had a ring on my finger. That said, I got a little over excited tonight so I thought I’d introduce myself and share my story!
Quick background, I’ve been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for 2 1/2 years and we’ve been living together for more than 1 1/2 of those…the topic of engagement has been hanging around for about a year now and I’m the first to admit that I have been far from patient! We decided about 9 months ago that we would use my Nana’s ring as my engagement ring so it has never been an issue of money for a ring, though it does need to be fixed (My nana died when I was six and always said that I should get her ring as I was the first grandchild. My mom has been wearing it for the last 19 years and it had to be cut off her finger as she had gained weight over the last 2 decades!).
Well, at some point a while back, I was prying into when an engagement might be coming and Boyfriend or Best Friend said that it would definitely be before the end of October…however as of last week, my mom was still making references to him needing to ask her for the ring!!! (I may or may not have casually mentioned this to Boyfriend or Best Friend…I’m so bad at the being patient part!!) Well, we went with my family today to a silly Renaissance Faire and as we were leaving, my mom not so subtly called my Boyfriend or Best Friend over to give him something!!! I know it stil has to be fixed but I’m excited that it looks like the end of October deadline might actually be a reality!
Sorry for the insanely long post but I look forward to being able to use this site more in the near future!!!
