The fun of the engagment ring purchase:


1.
Love - I found my one true love - guna have to marry this girl!

2.
Denial - Are you kidding me? I have to spend this much money on a silly rock????

3.
Anger - Who made these crazy rules that I have to do this?!?!

4.
Wineing - Waaahh - I don't wananaanana!!! They are going to take advantage of me. What do I know about diamonds?!?!

5.
Study - I'm guna learn up on this stuff and get me a good deal!

6.
Confusion - OH MY GOD - THIS IS SOOOO COMPLICATED!

7.
Study some more - Find pricescope.com. Found out I'm not alone! Read, read, read, read, read,....

8.
- Sleep - Can't keep my eyes open any longer.... Waking up in the middle of the night and reaching for my ideal-scope...

9.
- Determination - I can do this and don't try to BS me with that "you just have to trust me to tell you it's good" stuff!

10.
Find a great dimond pick out the setting.

11.
Panic in fear that I could have done better of that I picked out the wrong setting. What if she doesn't like it!

12.
Realize how silly I'm being and give an incredible sigh of relief that the shopping part is over!

13.
Wait for the ring to come in the mail. If I update the FedEx web page every 5 seconds will the ring get here faster?!?!

14.
Come up with the perfect plan to propose in a way that is guaranteed to bring tears (the ones of joy silly!).

(This is the stage I'm at now - the rest I can only guess but...)

15.
Pop the question.

16.
Oh boy! She said yes and loves her ring!!! It's all worth it!!! Now I can sleeeeep!

17.
What do you mean you want to know if that wedding dress makes you look fat?


-Greg

EDIT - Updated now that I've purcahsed the ring.
