No Christmas day proposal here either.  I’ve never expected a proposal before, but this holiday season I had an inkling it may actually happen… too many weird happenings around our place.  But, nothing. :/

Kind of funny, I am usually the gal calming my upset friends down when someone they know gets engaged, but they are still waiting on their SOs.  This year a significant number of my friends got engaged, and I am genuinely VERY happy for them!  But for the first time, I actually had to feed myself the same comforting phrases I used to tell my friends.  I still haven’t decided if I am getting old and soft, or if my friends are rubbing off on me… lol. 😉

Well after 2 months of pure excitement because I was so sure I was getting engaged on Christmas what did I get? A promise ring. I’m not mad and not too disappointed because we have only been dating slightly over a year, although I know everyone had heard this a million times I know he is the one. As much as I wanted it I think I might enjoy it more if its actually a big suprise, and I know its going to be easier if everyone is happy for us instead of judging us for our relationship length.

Plus the diamond promise ring is really really pretty 🙂 He told me that my e ring is going to be much bigger! I told him dont make it too big I dont want to ruin it considering my career is working with wild animals. I’m currently trying to decide if I want to wear the promise ring while working with the cheetahs during my trip to Africa that is coming up.

@Tachetetreasures:  Just wanted to say that is the most perfect promise ring I have ever seen. And that I think you are super cool for working with wild animals!

I was not really expecting it because my SO is really bad at keeping secrets and I had dropped a bunch of hints. Last summer, he had promised a Christmas or by-Christmas engagement but he was already backing out of that by early October. Currently, the promise is by our third anniversary, which comes up in July 2013. I hope he doesn’t back out again. 🙁

SO has been hinting that he bought me “something sparkly” for weeks, which turned out to be a bottle of gold schnapps (the one with gold flakes floating in it). He knew he’d been leading me to believe it was jewelry and he thought it was hilarious.

I cried with disappointment (which I don’t think he expected), so he said huffily “Well you convinced yourself it was a ring… I never said so!” So he knew I was expecting the “something sparkly” to be a ring, or at least nice jewelry, and he still let the lie continue even though I was bound to be hurt and disappointed.
