So far so good!

While watching Knocked Up, the couple of scenes about getting engaged came up. There’s a line about “three months’ salary”– he kind of choked, and I made some joke about how ridiculous and arbitrary that is. I could see he was kind of tallying up what three months of his salary would be (I would never want him to spend that much on a ring– if I’m right about what he’s getting me, it’s more like a week’s salary, which is great by me). But I didn’t say anything else!

I have done really well, we have been talking about what is going to happen in the near future  dues to his recent injury… like if he will be going back to his old company or going to school etc… I was kind of wondering yesteray what he wanted to do becvause we will be both paying rent and bills in the next month together and if he were to choose to stay on E.I then I am sure that wouldnt be enought to live on and buy a ring.. He mentioned that he would go back and work fullt ime and probably choose to do some part time courses. So that made me feel better, I just said ” you know you dont have to have this other career you want before we are married we have time to be engaged and work on that stuff in the mean time, you know what I want atleast” and he said he does. Which is a good thing he knows I want to be engaged in the next coupe of months.. I was happy with that conversation because he had brought it up and it didnt turn into an arguement, so I am still doing well with the V-day Challenge…

Well the V-Day challenge worked for me!!  I kept my mouth shut for almost 2 months about anything wedding/ring/engagement related..  Since he kept saying he didn’t want to feel pressured and wanted it to be a surprise.. 

And it worked!  Just got engaged yesterday..  Apparently he had the ring for almost 3 months, including the times I had a melt down and we had a fight! haha.  So I just pushed it off longer when I did that.  But thankfully it worked out.  Good luck to you gals, hope it works out for you soon too!

Well I have done really well and anytime anything about engagement has been brought up it has been him and we dont stay on the subject too long as I do not want to ruin anything.
