Hello! I’ve been sort of lurking here for a little while but decided now is the time to actually join.
A little on us – My boyfriend and I have been together for about two and a half years but have a pretty decent history with each other. He was my brother’s best friend for years and had a thing for me. All of that fun stuff. We’re both somewhat young. I’m 21, he’s 24. We’ve been living together for about the past year.
Anyway, this year we were thinking about celebrating Valentine’s Day. Neither of us ever cared for it before but it just seemed like something to do. He informed me he was planning on getting me a serious present but I didn’t think too much into it. Or I didn’t until Monday when I was playing with his phone (not snooping, I swear). He got an email. I didn’t think and opened it up. It was a shipping confirmation on the engagement ring that he knew I wanted. So, marked that sucker as unread and have been horribly excited all week. It came in today. I pretended not to know because I know it would kill him if he knew I found out. He told me it’s my Valentine’s gift. So, yay! The next ten days are going go be so ridiculous.
Sorry if this post has any horrible flaws or anything of the like. I’m using my ipod for this, so it’s a slight pain in the butt.

@cadybug: How cute!!! That is so exciting! I am also 21, my Fiance is 28. Our engagement wasn’t quite as cute as yours is owning up to be so far, though! What is your dream ring, do you have a link or anything? But anyway, future congratulations!

It’s just a simpleish ring from Zales. I’m not much of a ring wearer, so I didn’t want anything too big. I’m sort of surprised he actually bought it because he was constantly trying to talk me into larger ones from the local jewelry stores. I really wanted him to get something cheaper than what they’d have, though. It’s about the most me ring I’ve ever come across anyway.

@cadybug: That is beautiful. I love the way the black works with the regular diamonds! I am right int he same boat with you- I wasn’t into the big ring thing. My ring is completely flat (ie no stones sticking out). It is beautiful though. I like rings that are a little bit different!

This is really exciting! I hope you are back next week with some pictures and good news for us!! Something similar happened to me–I was snopping on my boyfriend’s e-mail (I was legit snooping too, so bad!) and saw some e-mails from a vintage ring dealer online including a tracking number! I have no idea which ring he picked out or when he plans to propose, but I know it must be in the next few weeks. It’s so agonizing to wait! You are lucky that you have a timeframe. Anyway, I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to hear more!!
