RIdiculously priced rocks and babies

Saturday Ryan and I went to pick out the stone for my engagement ring. Wendy had 3 stones for us to look at, and honestly they all looked almost exactly the same. Though one wasn't quite as clear as the others and one was almost pink instead of red, oh yeah, and there was about a $1000 difference between them. One was a little over 500, one was 12 something and one was 15 something. And when Wendy asked Ryan which one he liked better he said "whichever one she wants, it doesn't matter"---I was like WHAT!  Of course it matters, retard, they look the same, why spend over $1500 dollars on something when you can get almost the exact same thing for $1000 less. Needless to say, I picked the cheap one. Wendy placed the stone in the setting so we could see what it would look like once they had it all together, and then she made me put it on! Even though I couldn't keep it; that's the second time they told me to put it on and then took it back. Ridiculous. Anyway, Wendy said it should be done Saturday, so I'll be getting it anytime after that.

That night we went out to dinner with his parents and they kept talking about how cute this little girl that was sitting a few tables behind us was. Seriously, like every 15 or 20 minutes they would look over at her and start talking about how cute she was again. At first I thought maybe I was being crazy and they really just thought she was cute, that maybe they weren't trying to, not so subtly, tell us that they wanted grandkids. Generally that's not really their style, they usually just come out and say what they want. So maybe I was reading into it right? No. During one of their 'oh she's so cute' moments Ryan's dad decides to tell us that one of his prayer requests when Ryan was born was that he would live long enough  to see his grandchildren. SERIOUSLY! We're not even officially engaged yet, I'm not wearing the ring, and he's already pushing for us to have kids. Like he's expecting to kick the bucket any day now. I swear that man is going to live forever, he just doesn't want to admit it.
