We decided that for date night sometime we needed to go try on rings for me, because what if the kind of ring I wanted looked weird on my hand or something!
Problem was, Mr. Jolley had a grown up job. 9-5 Monday through Friday. Which happens to be the operating hours for most jewelers. So we went to Kohls and Walmart on a weeknight at 9 PM to try on rings. It was hilarious and not ideal, but it at least helped us get an idea of what I wanted.
It was so exciting. Talking with the salespeople about potential wedding dates, telling them our whirlwind love story, and trying on rings thinking "I'm actually getting married to this man!"
After trying on a few and showing Mr. Jolley the kinds I liked, he said he wanted to try and pick a few I might like and I could say whether I liked them or not. Every single one he pointed to I loved. I told him the ring could be a surprise, just like he wanted it to be.
And then it was time to wait for a proposal...
