Not Engaged Yet

There was a ring box hiding in my Christmas tree this morning...

...but it's not there anymore. 

Because it was one of my Christmas presents from BF; we exchanged gifts tonight. Sapphire with 2 small diamond accents, love it. It's not an e-ring though, don't worry (we're soo not there yet)!

Wee! I love Christmas! Have any of you given/received any gifts yet? Other than BF, I've given/gotten a few to/from co-workers.

    I was going to say something along those lines, but I thought maybe I'm still too new here to bring out the phrases that you guys use.

    Exactly my thoughts, GPB. Pics or it didn't happen.

    Either way that is totally cute and you did get me for a second with the ring in the tree thing. Silly lady! To answer your question, we pretty much did all our presents already. All we have is my mom's tomorrow and trust me we didn't even get to the point of wrapping this year.

    We were so lazy.

    That sounds beautiful! It is always nice to have someone you love on Christmas. My fiance and I will exchange one gift tomorrow and do the rest on Christmas.

    Girl, you do not have to show anyone a pic of your ring. You have nothing to prove to anyone. You enjoy your ring and life. They are haters and probably just got gift cards.

    BF and I decided to take each other out for dinner this year. Although he did find a $10 iTunes giftcard lying around and gave it to me to use. But it wasn't $25, so he doesn't love me.

    Oh, and him and I did a rock(ish) version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and I sent it to family as a sort of Christmas card. The link to the vid is on my FB.

    ETA: Beads, that ring is so pretty! And Joiner, can you just shut up or go away? Both would be preferable.

    Verrry pretty. I want a ring from BF too. We aren't seeing each other till next month though. And I don't mean an E-Ring.

    <div>Haha, that was the idea. BF just hates to wrap, so he hid a couple things in the tree to prevent having to do it. </div><div>

    Hahaha... I'm that way. That totally put a smile on my face. We were discussing when we were going to exchange gifts (K is coming in late tomorrow night) and I was like, how about first thing Christmas morning? I have zero patience when it comes to gifts.

    Oh, and the ring is beautiful!

    Love your ring! Very classy. FI already guessed his gift (it was Call of Duty: Black Ops and he kind of knew beforehand, but when we went to Gamestop for a gift card for my brother, he did the ol' "Maybe I should buy Black Ops, huh, baby?" lol). And we've gotten our joint gifts from my parents and my brother already. A popcorn machine and a blu-ray player (sha-wing!).

    Is it one of those popcorn machines that looks like something you'd see at the theater? If so I'm jealous.
  • edited December 2011

    That ring is completely gorgeous. I'm jealous, Beads. Next time you better be engaged though. lol.  And I love the idea of hiding gifts in the tree. We're really not good with that stuff. And I am also on the jealous train for the popcorn machine if it's like a movie theater one.

    GPB's your song is the bomb and it was completely classic. I wish we were as adorable as you two. :)

    Joiner - really? You're back again? I thought we were done with you awhile ago. Please return to whatever black hole you crawled out of to come and comment on this post.

    Very pretty ring!!

    I've exchanged gifts with a few friends. Received a penguin pillow pet :D, a set of tupperware [much needed], and a nightmare before Christmas picture frame. Most of my gifting happens Christmas day, this year I'm doing an exchange the day after Christmas too. I'm just excited to give all the gifts that I've gotten for people, it's my favorite part! BF and I will prob do gifts Christmas evening, just the 2 of us, after spending the afternoon with my family.

    Who the hell invited you to our party!?! No one asked for your opinion so, as my mama likes to say, BEAT IT!!

    Beads, beautiful ring!

    As for your question... We haven't opened gifts yet! We'll do some tonight and some tomorrow... BF did tell me, though, that one of my gifts is that he's going to have the windows on my new car tinted! :D (Which I was going to do anyway but he's going to pay for it)

    Joiner - you aren't a reg on any board so you wouldn't  get it. We all know each other, talk to each other every day, like each other, and have inside jokes.,

    With no one liking you and all I can see how you wouldn't understand that whole friendship thing.

    Joiner: she wouldn't post about the ring at all if she didn't want to share with us, silly! Pour yourself an eggnog and RELAX. There was no need for you to accuse people of just being jealous, just like there's no need for anyone to jump all over you for a random comment.

    The funny part about Joiners gift card thing is that I just read some of her old posts. Apparently getting them for Christmas is tacky, but asking for them at your wedding is  A-OK.
