Not Engaged Yet

Finally Something To Post About!

I usually do more lurking on the board than posting because I haven't had much exciting news to share. BUT today I do!

BF surprised me with a shopping trip to the jewlers on Saturday. I picked out my engagement ring & he bought it! It takes two weeks for it to be sized. It's exactly what I had hoped for.

So excited! Hopefully I'll have some great proposal news in the upcoming weeks!

    That is great news! Congrats!

    Have you introduced yourself yet? (Perhaps you have and I missed it)

    No picture of the actual ring yet, but I bet I could find one on the jewelers website. Lemme see!

    ..............................

    OK Hopefully this works. Like I said I haven't posted much so I'm really a newbie.



    Ember: Thanks! I did post an intro many months ago but I really haven't posted much since. Picking out the ring gets me more motivated. :-)

    Thanks everyone!

    Thank you! It did not. The lady showed me a few that I may be interested in. I didn't pick out a set though.

    That's so exciting! I'm happy for you jorhys!! You should post some stuff about yourself so we can all get to know you better. Here's some questions to get you started:

    1. Do you like to travel? Where have you been?
    2. What was your best vacation ever?
    3. What is 1 place you would visit if money/time off were no problem?

    oh - and I think it's smart that you aren't telling all  of your girlfriends yet. my guy and I have a ring picked out, but he told me not to show all my friends pics and talk about it because then I'd have no one to share with when it actually happens. I thought that was good advice!

    Thanks everyone! I thought I had posted an intro a few months ago but when I looked for it today I couldn't find it. Maybe I never actually posted it. I'll go ahead and post one.  Looking forward to chatting more with you all!

    What are your thoughts on Harry Potter?

    I've never read Harry Potter.. or seen the movies. I love to read but I just graduated from college so all of my reading time was focused on books for school.

    BUT I do love wine! Mostly white wines. Anything light and fruity. Moscato... YUM! I'll try any type of wine though. My girlfriends and I have wine parties about once a month and each bring a different bottle of wine to try. Good times.

    Ooooh, that is super exciting.  And a very lovely ring.

    Alas, you must read Harry Potter!

    But bonus for fur babies and white wines.  Welcome to nonlurker status.
