Finalized my selection today with James Allen and he called in the payment a little bit ago. And now I wait (and try not to go crazy!) it’ll be ready for us to pick up in 2 weeks (driving down to my mailbox in Oregon, so we didn’t pay sales tax) and I’ll likely get a look at it so we can make sure we aren’t sending it back within the 30 day return window. And then the real torture of waiting begins!

Congratulations, so exciting!!! I’m sending you lots of patience and positive vibes! 🙂 it’s SO hard when you know it’s in the house. I found the ring box but didn’t look, and not sure if it’s even in there! I’m distracting myself! Hahah

Thank you thank you ladies!!! I don’t think he’ll make me wait too long, but we’ll see. I turn 30 (!😳) on February 23 so I think sometime around then looks promising…but, we’ll see!

“And then the real torture of waiting begins! ” But why ? Why is there to be more waiting when the ring is bought and and approved of? What on earth is there to wait for? ( sorry, but pet peeve here)

yeah I hear you here. In my case I trust he won’t drag it on for ages…originally it was going to be after Easter because that’ll be the first time I’m meeting his parents (they live in another country) but now he says his plan is to do it before that. So, while I’d rather have it right away I’m willing to hang back for a bit and let him execute his plan (or his plan b that he says he has, in case the first plan fails!) I get what you’re saying though. So many people who just go on and on that you see on here unfortunately.

Congrats!!! Be reeaaally careful with your taxes, even if you didn’t pay sales tax you’re supposed to pay “use tax” on that item from the state you live in. It’s easy to get away with this with simple stuff like groceries, but I don’t know how often big purchases like engagement rings would set off any flags.
I definitely considered doing the same until I looked into it and I’m a scaredy cat, haha. Most likely you’ll be fine
