Let me just start off and say it’s nice to “meet” all of yall! For the past, oh I don’t know…6 hours(?) I’ve been reading all these posts on the waiting board. I’ve been reading all day, and I finally decided to join the bees! Seems like you ladies are all super supportive, and I could really use some encouragement right now!
Background story to follow later for anyone who is interested. I was just going to go ahead & let it all out…but it’s a lot. So I’ll start by saying hey! 🙂

Me…I’m currently in nursing school. I will be completely finished May of 2011, when I will be able to get my license to be a Registered Nurse (RN). I worked my butt off in high school and the summer after hs to be accepted right away into my college’s competitive nursing program. (I’ve always been goal oriented & have wanted to be a RN for a long, long time) so yes, I am young, but I know what I want out of life. (& obviously who I want to spend it with! 🙂 )
Him…well he’s basically amazing. Haha, in all seriousness, he’s 4 years older than me. He bought a house last August, two weeks after his 23rd bday. He finished paying off his car in January. He has a drafting degree, and a pretty awesome job to go along with it. He has been living on his own with bills and such for 4 years, so even though he is also considered “young” he’s super responsible when it comes to money & all that fun stuff.
Us…We’ve been dating for almost 3 years. It will be 3 years next month. We’ve known each other for about 10 years or so. We grew up going to church camp together. We were friends for years before we ever considered (or were allowed, ha!) to date. We now go to church together. We were both raised in very loving homes. Both sets of parents showed us awesome examples of how a loving, healthy marriage should be. So we’re definitely not going into this blindly. He’s my best friend, but so much more…not to sound corny…
The waiting…We’ve talked about marriage from the beginning, both knowing nothing would come of it until we both finish college. We knew I had to get into the nursing program to know exactly when I would be finished with school. After I was accepted he began to look at houses, and we had a long discussion about marriage. About two months ago we began “the perfect ring hunt”, knowing that I only have 3 semesters of school left. Oh my goodness, it was so exciting!! So I picked out 2 that I LOVE. It’s up to him to choose, although I know which one we both like better. Well about a week ago I had a little pitty-party-what-the-crap-why-am-i-not-engaged-yet-meltdown, because he was showing no signs of going back to the jewelry store **more bkgrd: I can so read him like a book. It’s not that he’s not romantic, it’s just I know him so well it’s kinda hard for him NOT to be predictable.** His calm attitude was so throwing me off. Well the past 3 days his hinting has been heavy that “something good is going to happen.” He also said, “I know to you it might look like nothing is going on, but everything may not be what it looks like. I can be calm about it because I know what’s going on.” Arrrrg. What does that even mean.
Sorry for the enormously long post. Is it a record breaker?? Ha, I’m seriously sick of not being engaged. I hate calling him my bf because he’s not just that. I’m really not used to not being able to tell what he’s thinking! Thanks for letting me vent!!
