<font color=”Green”><font size=”2″>Ok.. so.. I just wrote a really long post and then my browser froze and I lost it.. awesome </font></font>
Anyway, my bf and I went and picked out a ring a couple of weeks ago. It was really romantic and the whole bit, but none the less he insited that I wait to wear the ring until he proposed properly. I thought this was incredibly romantic and complied happily.
He has been planning and plotting for something this weekend and I was super stoked. We are really broke right now, but it’s not about the money and I was just excited to see him trying so hard to make it perfect for me. Well, he called today sounding quite upset. He told me that he had talked to his aunt and she was going to come down and get us a room at the brand new casino hotel (comped.. she’s a regular). But that today she told him that since she was coming down to get the room she figured she would call his mom and her sister to join her for some gambling fun.
He was afraid I would be disapointed because we had made such a big deal about how this weekend we were going to do something really romantic with just the two of us. Plus, I’m not a fan of gambling and his mother really grates on my nerves sometimes. Ideally we could just ignore them once we got the room, but they are busy bodies and I doubt it would work out that way. I tried to play it off but he heard the disapointment in my tone. Woops! I think I recovered though… I told him that his weekend wasn’t just about me it was about us and that as long as we had one day of alone time the other day could be spent with whomever. This seem to work and he seems pleased with my reaction over all… thank goodness.
I was acutally thinking about inviting a few others up to join if we end up spending time with his mom and aunts and make it kind of an impromt-to engagment celebration.. do you think that’s a good idea? I don’t want to be stuck with someone trying to stay in our room because they’re too drunk to drive or something ridiculus like that. I think it might make him really realize that I am not disapointed if I make this suggestion. But I don’t want to overstep my boundaries and try to plan the weekend for him either.. what do you think?
On another note… Since he is doing all of this for me I want to do something for him too. I am going tomorrow to pick out some new lingerie and I thought about taking a bottle of wine, but what else can I do. I want to make the night truly feel like it is about US not me. Any suggestions?
