Okay, ladies. First, my SO admitted to me last week that he had watched a wedding show when I wasn’t home. Then he’s been making comments about when we have kids, non-stop. Now he’s starting to … wait for it … make comments on rings in jewelery commercials!! AHH. A seemingly small but also gigantic thing for this lady lol. I’m sure you guys can relate, I’m sure your bellies get full of butterflies when your man brings up e-related things all by himself! Forgive me, but I just had to share with someone, so Bees it is!
Last night we were watching TV, and of course, one of our favorite commercials as Waiting Bees comes on. They show a guy talking about how he knew nothing about diamonds until he went to such-and-such company. You can see his fiance in the background on the phone freaking out because he proposed.
[Meanwhile during this time, I go from looking at the TV, to examining our carpet, and basically looking all over the room before looking back to the TV again]
Then all of a sudden, my SO is like “That’s a nice ring! What do you think of that one? Do you think that one’s nice?”
I had to take a second to calm myself down, I couldn’t believe he’d said such a thing. This simple little comment was coming from a guy who would usually either change the channel, go completely silent, or talk really loudly about the weather during these commercials. Yes, that’s right. And now he’s actually pointing out and commenting on engagement rings on TV, asking for my thoughts?! I’m trying so flippin’ hard not to freak out and prance around the house because I think we’re reaching new levels here… but man! He is just making it harder and harder on me haha.
Anyway. Back to the ring porn.
It was a pretty, 2 carat total weight ring, kinda similar to this ring band-wise. It was a very thick band. That’s all I remember. I was in such shock, I could barely form an opinion about it, so I all said to him was “Eh, it’s a bit too much.”
Afterwards I realized I had an opportunity to open up a little more about rings, but he already knows what I like. Part of me still wishes I would’ve said just a smidge more, but… it’s probably better I played it cool, anyway heh. 😉
I’ve been on vacation from work, and I’ve been snowed in the last couple days so I actually started looking around on The Knot’s website – just for ideas, I swear! [No planning for this lady until she’s actually engaged]. But it’s been fun, I never did the whole ‘daydreaming about my wedding when I was 5’ thing. So looking at stuff as he starts making more of these comments makes me a little giddy. 🙂
Have any of you had this stuff happen with your SO? Or any already-engaged/married Bees, did your SO do any of this before he proposed?
