- Wedding: February 2014
I got some major waiting updates from my SO this weekend & I’m so excited!!! My SO was previously engaged (over 6 years ago) and still has the returned engagement ring in his possession. After we went ring shopping, he mentioned that he wanted to sell the old ring. Sp back to the story: I spent almost all of yesterday away from home for work. When I got back home at the end of the day, I asked what he’d been up to. He said he had:
– Called his brother’s friend who is a jeweler to get some information about selling a “used” ring
– Driven to the mall to take that ring to Kay’s to get the appraisal certificate and had gotten it professionally cleaned
– Bought me a bouquet of flowers
The man is on the ball! Later, we were cleaning our place together and he randomly asked what my must do’s/don’t do’s for a proposal. He said he was just starting to think of ideas and wanted me to tell him if there’s something I absolutely would or would not want to have. I said no jumbotron proposal, preferably no crowds or friends and family, and definitely no Eiffel Tower proposal (we’re going to France soon). I really do want something private and heartfelt. I told him even if he proposed in bed, I’d be a happy girl! So, good to know that he’s starting to think about that stuff.
He’s also said that he wants to give himself a “big window” to propose and so that means it’ll happen before the end of this year. I didn’t have the heart to tell the poor guy that that isn’t a big window. 😉 Anyway, I’m so excited!!!
