I hate getting my hopes up, and I am preparing for the comments of "just enjoy yourself, try not to think about," but I just thought I could share a little hint I got this weekend!
BF has to pay for new brakes on his car, and I asked him how he would be able to pay for it considering money is tight. He told me that one of his CDs is going to be accessible in the next week, so he'll have access to a chunk of his savings at that point. Ordinarily I wouldn't think anything of it but when he said it he had the goofiest grin on his face! The moissanite ring I want is less than $1k so I think it might be possible for him to buy it in the next few weeks! Maybe even in time for our anniversary in January!
I actually had butterflies for a few hours after his comment. Amazing to get butterflies after almost 4 years together. Ha!
