- Wedding: June 2014
Okay so I’ve been away for quite some time (I left due to my final exams and then I had to move cities and I’ve been busy, sorry!) but I’m back.
If you guys remember, I’ve been waiting to hear back from the school in my hometown where I’d applied to the Nursing degree program. Well, I got accepted!!! And that means I’ll get to finally be out of my LDR and living with SO! He is pretty excited
And guess what ladies? SO has done some pretty crazy things!
So anyways let’s start at the beginning. When I first got back we went jewelry shopping for fun. We had already found a ring we loved (he said my face lit up like a light bulb when I tried it on, hehe) and so we went to a different jeweler, one in our home town this time. My SO expressed his needs in a diamond (has to be hearts and arrows cut, has to be round, has to be D color) and gave the owner the rest, saying he’d be fine compromising on the other things as long as he couldn’t see the occlusions.
The owner was really impressed with how much we knew. And then my SO brought up the ring we liked, they printed off a picture and told us they could make it for us. Now the thing with my fingers is that they’re size 3 to 3 3/4. So they’re tiny. And the ring that I tried on was size 6! So it was giant on me. The owner said that even if we did order from the designer that the ring would have to be custom because my finger is so small. So he said the price might be lower due to shrinking the ring, losing some of the band diamonds etc.
So the custom process he said, was $100 initially which starts the process. After that the time it takes is up to the customer etc. So my SO thanked him and said he’d be in touch.
Well a few weeks later I was asking him about it. I asked mostly because I wanted to see this ring when it actually FIT my finger! But my SO said “you know, for something that’s supposed to be a surprise you’re VERY involved” haha! So I dropped it.
A few weeks after that we’re sitting in his car and he calls his bank (we had just hooked his phone up to bluetooth over the car, so I could hear his conversation). He was concerned because he didn’t think it was adding up right. So he asked the lady to just list any purchases over $50. Well lo and behold, she says “$100 to ____ Jewelers”. I’m sure my eyes widened but thankfully I was looking out the window. I haven’t said ANYTHING to him that I heard or anything (’cause he’s told me every time I say something the longer I’ll wait!!!)
So guys. A few weeks ago SO started the custom process! He’s told me before that he’ll probably finance the ring, so cost is not an issue.
Fast forward to now. I try to never bring up wedding stuff, but he brought it up the other day. SO owns a home and he’s renting it to a friend who wants to buy it. But we don’t really have a timeline for her. He was talking, “You know, I want to ask her and just, like, in three years be like ‘listen I’m getting married, I need to know what you’re doing with the house’ you know?” And me, well I don’t know when he plans on doing anything so I just have to be curious and ask “you want to get married in 3 years?” and he goes “oh we’ll be married before then”
Ladies! We’ll be married before 3 years from now, meaning he’s going to propose soon!!! I’m so excited!!
I’m sorry I just had to share with someone, I’m about to burst!
