I'm trying to decide if maybe I'm a bit jealous because I've been in a relationship longer than she but am still not engaged (though my boyfriend and I have discussed it and right now we're truly happy with where we are and the way things are headed, I usually still get a little green when my friends get engaged).
But even though I'm not un-happy for her, 4 months ago they were broken up and she hated him, was dating a few new guys, etc. Then she got back with him, within a month they were moved in together and she was wearing a promise ring and referred to him as her fiancee anyway. So, not very shocked at the news, not to mention a little weirded out at their situation to begin with.
He treats her well for the most part, although he is very jealous because one of the guys she was dating a few months ago works with us. But he's also very spoiled. His family and wealthy and he's never really lifted a finger in his whole life, yes has had everything paid for. I just have a hard time being excited for that I guess. When I see her on Monday I'll say congrats but I'm trying to find a way to fake the excitement for her.

Well if she has been referring to him as her fiance for a while then it shouldn't be much of a surprise that it's finally 'official'. You can just say congrats and then leave it at that. If she is the kind that expects her friends to gush about her engagement then I don't really know how to help you with that. I'm not a very subtle person.
As for being jealous, try to just focus on your own relationship and not worry about what she is doing. Some people live their lives at a quicker pace than others. The key is learning how to enjoy the ride.
