I am going crazy bees!!! I am going to try to keep this as short as possible.
My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I openly talk about engagement and marriage. His mom recently got engaged (her second marriage) and one of his friends is getting engaged. He knows that I look at rings just for fun. I honestly did not expect it to happen anytime soon. One day he saw that I had found this beautiful half carat bridal set and asked a lot of questions about it. He even had me text him the product number. He works third shift (11 pm to 7:30 am) at our local hospital and some people recently quit. We do not live together yet and he usually has a hard time sleeping at his house. He does come up to my house a lot to sleep. While he was falling asleep he started to talk about rings. He said that he had stopped looking and out of all the rings that he had looked at, he loved the one I had found the best. We have been together for over 5 years and I always joke that it will be another 5 years before he proposes. He told me that it would not be that long but I would not expect it. I know he does not have the ring yet but he is picking up as much overtime as he can and is looking at 24 hours of overtime on his next paycheck. He said that he was picking up the overtime for that reason. So I am in a holding pattern and going crazy!!!
