After getting some awesome feedback from the Bees, I talked with Boyfriend or Best Friend about him not accepting my mom’s offer of her engagement ring. Conversation went something like this:
Me: Sooo, about what we talked about the other night…
Boyfriend or Best Friend: *eyes widen..look of horror* Uhm…yeah?
Me: You are absolutely right about why you don’t want to take my mom’s ring.
Boyfriend or Best Friend: Wait..what? Can I get that in writing? Are you serious? Who have you been talking to??
Me: *innocent face* Why…no one. *ahem* Anyhow, why not use the ring as something towards the house, etc?
Boyfriend or Best Friend: I’m MUCH more comfortable with that idea!
Me: Also – since we are talking about it, what’s your time-line in your head looking like? Not trying to pressure, just trying to see where your head is at.
Boyfriend or Best Friend: Well, I’ve been paying down my debt and putting money away into savings. I would have proposed a long time ago, but, like you said, I need to take care of debts first.
Me: Sooo, would you say that maybe by summer of next year (2014) we will be engaged?
Boyfriend or Best Friend: Oh definitely.
Me: Well alright then! Good talk. Go team. *high five*
Boyfriend or Best Friend: *high five*
So thank you ladies SO MUCH for talking some sense into me and helping me see HIS side of things. It gave me SUCH peace to know where his head was at (FINALLY) and to have some time-frame in mind. I get very…prickly when I don’t have a plan for things, haha. So now I can just relax and…wait. Haha! <3
