…though he hasn’t given it to me yet!
i’m really, really bad, and i snooped, and i found a bag from the jeweller his family always goes to in his backpack on the floor of our room…i reached inside and felt a little box (as well as a small champagne bottle and jewellry clearner–so practical!), but i didn’t open it…
i really, really thought he was going to propose last night–we had a date night at a restaurant we’ve been really wanting to try (we’re big foodies, and the chef is actually on top chef this season!). and then after dinner, we went on a walk and ended up eating cupcakes on the steps outside this hotel/restaurant we’d just the day before talked about maybe being a contender for our wedding venue… buuuut no proposal yet…
i think we’re having date night again this weekend (really, every night is date night since we live together! but, we try and make it consciously special every once in awhile so we aren’t just roomies…) so maybe it’ll happen then….ooooor who knows, i think we’re going grocery shopping tonight, maybe he’ll propose in the freezer aisle at trader joes
i’m just trying to breathe calmly and let things fall into place the way he wants them to since he wanted to do the proposal on his own….but i wanted to share!

hehehe, i didn’t pass out, but our dog did get a bunch of extra cuddles right then and there!
i don’t know what the ring looks like–i know it’s an heirloom stone from his family and he picked the setting. our non-hypothetical discussions about getting married started after i told him i wanted to be as involved in picking and paying for the ring as he wanted me to be, and he said he wanted to do it all on his own–but i did guess the jeweller right (he had pearl earrings set for me from there about 2 years ago, from pearls he won at some carnival-type game when he was like 8–totally different story!). the jeweller has very modern looking styles on its website, lots of bezel and tension settings…we’ll see! 🙂

That’s too cool! Can’t wait to hear how he does it and of course see some pics!
Caution: It is toture knowing the ring is in the house. Mine waited 3 weeks before he gave it to me. Just prepare yourself!
