Daydreaming of Something Shiny

One of the 24 similarities between women and fish are they’re both attracted to shiny objects. You really never read my blog do you? -Barney, How I Met Your Mother

Last night Match, his sister, and I went out for burgers and beer at one of the local breweries in town. It was a nice evening, pretty laid back, and chance to get to know Match Sister better. We’re planning to have a small house party at our new place next month, maybe just a game night with Match Sister, Couple Friends, Nice Guy, Birthday Twin, and Old Married Couple. I can’t wait till we’re all moved into the house and finally have the room for everyone to hang out. What’s nice about moving in with Brazil is she’s already friends with Old Married Couple, and she gets along with new people easily.

I know her and Couple Wife will be great friends-they’re both really outgoing and fun, and also both enduring their first pregnancies. πŸ™‚ I wonder how things will change once babies arrive for both of them. I’m sure we won’t see either of them as much, so I’m trying to spend as much time with them now as possible.
I just wish I had the money to buy rockband 2 for our PS3. We had such a blast playing it with OMC at their place, and Brazil’s house definitely has the room. Who knows, maybe I’ll get it for Match as a bday present in February. πŸ™‚ Or maybe he’ll get it for me for Christmas-ha.
So after hanging out with Match Sister last night, Match and I went for a stroll in the mall. We decided to go to the jewelry stores to get this, LOOK AT RINGS. Hehehe, sorry but that is just exciting. I’ve never done that with a boyfriend, not even just to look. He’s been sending me pictures online when we chat of different rings to get my opinion. Its so sweet that he does it, but in a way I worry that now I’m going to expect it. He teases me that it’s not for a long time, but then he always brings up rings, marriage, houses, even babies. I think he’s trying to throw me off, and it’s working. I am trying to just go with the flow, because I’m so happy with everything just the way it is. Still, I would be so freaking happy if this Christmas I got something shiny. πŸ˜‰

    I’m so glad to hear that you’re doing so well. How wonderful.

    So you’re totally in the same position as Pam and Jim a while back. She thought and expected that something was coming and he totally toyed with her. hahahaha!! How cute.

    Hi! Yippee – always exciting! Congrats, looking is the first step. I sold diamonds for a long time, in retail and then later directly from a diamond broker. If you would like some hints for buying and inside knowledge, I would love to teach you guys! If you don’t already know a bunch or someone else in the business, email me? I hate to see young people starting out get ripped off! A free crash course in diamond buying! I am not assuming you don’t know, so please don’t be offended if so.

    Oooh, someone’s getting ready to ask you something! I’m sure no one wants to get you more excited than necessary (I hate being “disappointed” so-to-speak) over the holidays, but all that hinting MUST mean something! If you’re anything like me, DG, you’ll probably be expecting it! :/ πŸ˜‰
