Well, this has been quite an exciting week!
My first Bee post was last week, in which I explained my waiting status. I had myself added to the Waiting List and was expecting a proposal in May. Last weekend I suggested we postpone the engagement by a month because my SO (MJ) is super busy and I didn’t want him stressing over it. I want it to be happy and fun for him too!
Well, last night he had a breakdown, saying he’d been looking all over trying to pick a ring but just couldn’t make a final decision. Even with the narrowed-down specs I’d provided. He was just terrified of making the wrong purchase. Poor lamb!
I smilingly said “You must have been relieved when I suggested we hold off a little longer, since you wouldn’t have had a ring in May.”
He replied “Not really. I want you to have it already! I just can’t pick one. I need you to pick it.”
That surprised me, ’cause he’d always made a big deal about surprising me with the ring. I wasn’t allowed to know where he’d been looking or whether he’d narrowed down his selection or purchased something.
I mentioned this, and suggested maybe we could work together; Narrow it down to 2-3 finalists (all of which I would love) but then he’d still get the final decision, order it on his own and I wouldn’t know when it was coming.
Nope. He’s decided now that I have to pick it so we’ll both be 100% happy.
So this weekend I get to go and start designing my dream ring! Yippee!!!
