My SO is up to something

I think I'm going to get a real proposal!

We kinda just decided to get married.. no real proposal.. more of a discussion. (We both have kids from previous relationships, so it was a big decision).

I work in a department store, that sells jewelery, clothing and mens suits.

I'm a bra fit / suit fit specialist.

Well he casually mentioned a few weeks ago, that I should measure him for a suit. He needs a new one. Now we go to some events where it is required to wear one.. but not a ton. He has one, that is nice.. but he wants a new one.. Okay.

He told me I'd be getting a ring.. and we've looked around a little, and the one I really really want, we sell at my job.. and it's only 50 bucks after my discount. He's mad because it's not a diamond, and it's only 50 bucks.. but we have much more important things to be spending money on than a ring.. I've been dissapointed, because I think he's going to spend more money on a ring, when THIS is the ring I WANT! But I haven't let on about this.. don't want to bruise his manhood lol. I just really want this ring..

Well a co worker mentioned to me that she saw him in there the other day.. but didn't know what/if he bought anything and he never mentioned to me about being there.

Then I asked my sister to babysit, not this coming weekend, but the following weekend, and she said "well isn't mom already babysitting".. Um.. NO?? You're the only person I've asked, since BFF just called 5 minutes before I asked you.. And then SO tells me his best friend that I've never met (lives 5 hours away) is coming to town..

So..

SO asked me to fit him for a suit

He was in my job, but hasn't mentioned it...

My mom is apparently babysitting but no one told me..

My BFF called called to make plans to go for lunch out of the blue.. we never hang out without the kids

SO's BFF is coming to visit the same weekend..

And SO told me before, that he thinks proposals should include all of your closest family and friends..

Hmm..

I hope I'm not reading too much into this chain of events..

I'm getting butterflies tho' =)
