Hey everyone! So I made it about 2 weeks from my taking a break post, and I’m still taking a break but I just wanted to update with some *exciting* news:
My Boyfriend or Best Friend dropped off our gemstone at our gemologist/lapidary to be cut yesterday!!!! That means that this morning it was cut (holy freaking shizzle!!) and will probably be shipped to him today (but hopefully not because I’m here visiting and I just do NOT want to be here when it arrives – too tempting)!!!!!
I also bought a cheap ($45) ring in the style of what I would like the Engagement Ring to look like so he could see since he won’t go looking with me. The cheap ring looks really amazing so he says all sad and puppy-dog-eyed “what does that leave me to do?” I had to point out all the things that are wrong with the ring so that he could see the room he has to make the ring “perfect” and unique to us (not understanding that I’d be happy with literally anything). We also decided to use the cheap ring as a stunt double for camping, traveling, hiking, etc. so the real Engagement Ring will be protected since it’s a gemstone.
He’s also been making jokes about his proposal, like you know that IHOP commercial where the guy proposes at IHOP? I said something like how lame that was, who proposes at IHOP and he goes “ohhh…. guess I better change my plans….shiiiiit….” HAHAHAHHA! I absolutely love it that he’s joking about it! Seriously this would have NEVER happened 1 year ago, he would bristle at any mention of marriage/engagement. It’s amazing how much can change in 1 year!
And last update: this weekend we signed a lease on the cutest house together! 6.5 years and we’re f i n a l l y living together! We are beyond excited about it and so are our families!!
