I just had the most realistic proposal dream that made me feel like a horrible person when I woke up. I know we've talked about proposal dreams before, but this one beat out the dream where my mom forced him to propose then he threw a shower curtain at me because he was angry.
So BF told me he wants to get me a ring for our anniversary tomorrow. We've had a few weeks to do this and I'm really not curious at all.
The Dream: I was sitting at the dining room table in our house doing something like using a laptop or some sort of electronic device. I feel a tap on my shoulder and I turn around to see BF one one knee and he just says, "Happy anniversary, we should get married." Which is great. No big crowds, just me and him and it's perfect. I tell him yes and then ask him a bunch of questions about it. He then shows me the ring and says, "I got you exactly what you wanted." I am HORRIFIED. This ring is hideous. It goes from a thin band on one side to knuckle-height on the other, and is a mixture of white gold and yellow gold. The center stone is HUGE and on the side of it, there are rhinestones and beading (like on cheap costumes) all over the big side. He's got a grin on his face and says proudly, "I picked it out myself!" Then he goes and takes a nap. In the meantime, I'm trying to love this scary piece of jewelry and in the end I can't. He wakes up and I come clean about how I hate it and we end up running around to different jewelry stores.
I woke up feeling extremely bad about myself. I felt like I was shallow and a horrible person. I honestly don't care much about what rings look like as long as they're not huge on my finger and I prefer that they don't cost anyone an arm and a leg.
Now that I've got my crazy out, I can't wait for today to be over. I've had BF's anniversary gift hidden in the closet for a couple weeks and it's taking all my self-control to not just give it to him. Since we work on opposite schedules and he's usually asleep when I get home and I'm asleep when he leaves for work, I haven't seen him since Sunday night. Which makes keeping the gift from him until tomorrow easier. I just have to make it through tonight and we should be good. I am also so excited for hopefully going to the Science Center and Natural History Museum this weekend!
