Hi newbie here been lurking a few days and registered today to vent original then right after signing up interesting events happened. So my vent was the beginning of the week my mom called saying she was engaged. We’re close so natural she wants me at the wedding. We live on opposite ends of the coast so I suggested a fall wedding since I already have a trip planned there next fall. Today she called again saying her Fiance has suggested eloping in Vegas where I live so it’s sooner and I can attend.
I wasn’t too fond of that idea. Call me bratty but I had already been annoyed most the week over her being engaged before me, when she has only dated the guy for a few months. Although she has known him for 6 years. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy and excited for her, but I’ve been with my Bf for 3.5 years. Yet no ring or hint of one on the horizon.
Long story short for now today my Bf came home late from work I wrote it off cause sometimes he has to work late, anyways I thought I heard him so I walked out towards the kitchen. Some of his family was over and once again normal the kids all started hugging right before I walked into the kitchen so that distracted me for a minute. Now to the weird stuff why my brain was working so slow I’m thinking lack of coffee lol. When I looked in it didn’t register that he was sitting at the table with everybody until he called to me. I did see a jewelry box in his hands it was open cause he was showing it to his mom. It was a small one for a ring or earrings, since I don’t have pierced ears I’m going with a ring. This all kinda happened in 10 seconds. I’m slowing down the brain to remember and pick out details. Next second his cousin is suddenly there drawing my attention away. I took the bait cause I was kinda shocked. Well he disappeared and came back saying he had a surprise for me. I tried to play cool and calm but I’m freaking out in my head so I start rambling on about how my family is doing -insert long convo here- and then nothing. We went on about our day and no more talk of the surprise.
Need advice what do you guys think is it the e- ring? Did I surprise him in the kitchen so he was gonna jump the gun? Do you think it might be a nice piece of jewelry and he forgot? (he is forgetful) ahhh I’m freaking out. I’m been reading alot of everybody’s posts and now understand the urge to snoop. I’m trying to relax I hate to get my hopes up but its so odd. Thanks for listening
