I've already told the beginnings (parts one, two and three) of the engagement story. If you hadn't guessed, we did pick the setting I loved and told you about. We put in a different diamond, you know, one that was a good quality but not perfect (the diamond that was in the setting was 0.67 carat nearly perfect diamond, clarity VVS1 and a D colour). I overheard the jeweller tell Wade my ring would be ready in 2 weeks. So I couldn't resist almost a month later asking about the ring (well, Wade says it was less than 2 weeks later but it felt longer than that). I was informed procuring the diamond took longer than initially estimated. I remember only asking once more about the ring; Wade says I asked a few times. Funny how we remember differently? :)
I should also mention we lived 180 km apart. I was working on the last month of a contract, so we were a 2-hour drive away from each other! We saw each other about every-other week-end.
About a month after he got the ring, my birthday was approaching.
Let me now quantify that I had told him I didn't want to be proposed to on my birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day, or any other such cheesey occassion.
But my birthday was fast approaching, so guess what I was thinking? We went to The Keg two days before my birthday for my birthday dinner.
Nope, no ring.
The day before my birthday was the staff Christmas party, so I knew he wouldn't propose then.
I was a little tired on my actual birthday as I had had a good time the night before.
I never dreamed Wade would propose on my birthday ... and he didn't.
And home Wade went, because the week-end was over.
To be continued ...
