I almost forgot

via here
On Saturday night after the massive holiday feast, I went out with my friends for some pre-birthday drinks at a bar in Houston called Prohibition.  It features - you guessed it - Prohibition type drinks as well as flapper serving girls and a "burlesque" style show.  In the middle of my first cocktail, my friend casually slips in that she and her boyfriend (who is one of my best of friends) are going to go diamond shopping the next day.  Sputtering, I look up to see if they're going to announce their engagement but no, just casual Sunday diamond shopping.  As if there is anything casual about it.  They swiftly march the conversation on (again, oh so casually) to other topics and more drinks until this afternoon, it suddenly strikes me across the face.  They went diamond shopping yesterday!  I had completely forgotten about it.  Sadly, they didn't find anything to their liking but I can't wait until they do and I get to chase the news down with some tequila shots.

How have your friends broken their engagement to you, dear readers?

  7. Sounds like an eventful night learning they were going gift shopping. :) And that bar in Houston sounds like fun too! I'll have to go next time I'm in Texas. Most of my friends have texted or called when they got engaged. :)

  8. Now almost all of my friends are married, but noone has made that big of deal of it when they´ve told me - just a "Oh, we´re getting engaged by the way"..! :-D

  9. I think I would wait to tell people until I was actually engaged. It seems more exciting somehow, like I know a secret that no one else does.

    But thrilling for your friend, nonetheless!

  13. I usually get an email or a text message with the big news right after it happens. So far, I haven't been told in person. Gotta love the digital age...

  14. Hahah, casual Sunday ring shopping.

    I feel like I find out via Facebook these days before I hear from the people themselves - so sad.

  15. Ha! That's my kind of casual shopping. I'm the girl who typically gets this call, "we're going to get engaged and he's going to pick an awful ring. Fix it!" I'm the unofficial, official engagement ring designer.
