Ladies, i felt AWFUL for what I did this weekend. Ugh.
We went to the mall to check out wedding bands, and just to compare stone sizes in engagement rings for him to get an idea, and at our first store everythign was great, and we both tried on bands and laughed and had a good time. We walked out of the store, and he asked if I wanted to go to another shop and I said no. But then I thought, well, who knows when we’ll get here again, so I may as well…
Dun dun dun…and then doom.
I had a major lapse and the sparkle caught my eye. We found the perfect ring there, on clearance and a SUPER good deal with a military discount. Seriously….it was gorgeous, and the ring was only $1700 down from $4000. WOW. I think the discount and my sparkle envy totally clouded my judgement and I tried so hard to drop hints into getting him to buy it for me. The saleslady caught on right away and was totally badgering him, and I felt so bad…but it got worse. He kept on refusing to buy it, and didn’t even want to put it on layaway to keep it just in case we decided to get it. But I didnt know why (I am so bad at connecting the dots!) he was refusing, and kept saying it was an impulse buy.
I eventualy put the ring back on the counter, and we walked out. I’m sure the saleslady and her co-workers talked about us behind our backs…oy. I can’t believe how bad I was in that store pressuring him to buy it, and I feel terrible about it now. But then I had a major bitch fit and barely talked to him the whole way home, which was an hour. Oops.
We finally talked about it later on, and I apologized profusely, crying with snot dripping down my nose lol. ewww. He was so mad at me, and i was so mad at him, until I realized why he didn’t want to buy it…because I think he’s already bought a ring or picked one out. And he also said that if he bought it right away, he thought he would have to give it to me right away because I would have seen it. And he said that sometimes I seem like I want a ring more than I want to marry him…..cue more tears and feeling awful. That’s so not true at all…sparkle envy just got to me somethign fierce!
I’m so glad we were able to fix this…and we’re fine now, and i just felt awful about it. I have never been that bad before, and am totally embarassed at my actions. I’m 32 years old, I shouldn’t be acting like a spoiled brat. I’ve had a feeling all along that he bought a ring, so WTF happened in that store yesterday? ugh. I want to make it up to him, but I think the best thing is to just drop it. My hope is that I can just not mention anything wedding or engagement related for a long time. I’m going to have to take it day by day, but my goal right now is a week to start with…Next saturday we’re going on a huge hike, so that will definitely help keep my mind off things.
Has anyone else had an episode like this before? i am still so embarassed at myself thinking about it now….
