- Wedding: June 2013
I am so glad I found this site, the “other” wedding site that shall not be name had me too scared to post.
So I’ve always said that we don’t need to married to be committed to each other and financially I’m better off than he is so it’s not like I feel I have to get married. And I’m not a girlie-girl so a ring was never a big deal to me.
At this time we’re not living together but that’s a whole other post for another board.
I was in his house this past Valentine’s Day putting out flowers and a card to surprise him when he got home. To my surprise I was the one who was surprised! Sitting on a buffet table was his mother’s engagement ring that she no longer wears. It’s a sweet solitaire that’s probably just over a ½ carat. Like any girl (girlie or not) put something shiny in front of me and some “shiny” gene in my brain suddenly explodes.
I of course have said nothing about seeing the ring and that night it was “hidden” but not really, like he wants me to find it. So now about once a week I check to see if it’s still in its draw in on the desk organizer and yes it still is. But he’s been tossing hints about “seeing another woman named Becky” and that “Becky’s business is open late on Thursday nights.” He’s also been working a bunch of over time since the beginning of the year and I trust him enough to know he’s not fooling around with “Becky”. So I’ve done some snooping and put some more hints together (did I mention he was throwing hints my way?) and figured out that Becky works at a jewelers near his work and they are indeed open late on Thursday night. I think he’s ordered another setting and he’s going to have the solitaire put into that setting (I could be waayy off, but this is what I’m working with).
A friend of a friend who is an Intuitive asked me the first time she met me if I was married because that is what she feels that I am. I explained my situation and she said sometime in July or August he’ll give me a ring. Believe what you will, but July is almost here and his hints are killing me!! Every time I walk in the house I’m looking for more hints, it’s starting to make my OCD go into overdrive and he loves every minute of it!! I sort of don’t want to get engaged anytime soon because the anticipation is actually quite a bit of fun.
So Bees….wish me luck!! Thanks for being patient with this very long post.
