My BF & I are taking a long weekend trip to Savannah, GA for our 4 year anniversary at the end of the month. This will be the second vacation that we’ve taken without other people tagging along since we first started dating. I am RIDICULOUSLY excited!! It’s going to be a great trip no matter what.
Here’s the thing… My bestie & I were talking about her wedding plans and she mentioned that we should start planning mine too because my BF is going to pop the question soon. I totally brushed it off because I want it to be a surprise. But, I already had a feeling because he has recently brought up ring sizes and what I like. Anyway, we’re staying at a really nice hotel. I’m pretty sure he has set up a manicure and massage appointment for me. He also told me that he has hired a photographer so we can get some nice photos taken while we’re there. He’s picked out some scenic places for us to visit. He’s definitely a planner! LOL
I should mention that my best friend and my BF’s best friend are engaged.
Yesterday I got a call from my BF and he was kind of freaked out. He said that my bestie asked her fiancé if my BF was going to propose while we’re there. Her fiancé told her no. My BF was asking me why she would ask something like that. I said that it was probably because we’ve been together for a while and that’s pretty much how her fiancé proposed to her. That was pretty much all that was said about it. I’m not sure if he was just trying to throw me off or if he was being serious… Why would he even say anything about it?
I’m not the type to put pressure on him about getting married. We both know that we want to be together for the rest of our lives. It’ll happen when it happens. I really don’t care WHEN it happens. I just care about WHY. I would never want him to feel forced or do it out of obligation. But, for some reason I’m super nervous now. I don’t want to get my hopes up and be obviously let down. Trust me, he would pick up on it. I know some of you have gone through the disappointment of being in the most perfect scenario only to have it not happen. How did you deal with it?

@cristieg: oh wow hmmm ya that phone call would have thrown me off too.
Everything else sounds like..maybe it could just be. I mean a photographer? If its just a regular vacation you just ask someone walking by to take pictures of you lol.
I dont want to get your hopes up either but ill keep my fingers crossed for you! It def sounds like it could be the opportunity. He maybe just got a little freaked out that the surprise had been spoiled.
Im glad you have a good attitude if it goes either way. You might be a little sad if not, which is understandable but if that should happen just remember, you teo have your whole lives to be together. There is no rush. GOOD LUCK!!!

sounds like the phone call could’ve been a way to throw you off. sounds like he is planning something but again, don’t get your hopes up. the best part is you know that he loves you and you two talk about spending your lives together. you know it will happen so just relax and enjoy your anniversary trip.
i had heard through the grapevine that my fi may have been planning a proposal. my friend and i were thinking christmas or new years eve so when christmas came around and i didn’t find a ring, needless to say i was disappointed. i don’t think he knew i was but i felt bad that opening gifts from him wasn’t anything exciting at all. turned out he proposed new years day on our cruise. don’t worry about how or when. let it all be exciting and a major surprise. enjoy!

I think I started thinking about it too much. I’ve never been too worried about getting married, but lately I have a sudden case of wedding fever (thanks Pinterest! LOL). Between helping plan my best friend’s wedding and her telling me that my BF is going to propose, I just got a little anxious.
I’ve just had this funny feeling inside since before my friend said anything. I’m trying to play it cool, but he keeps making little comments that make my mind wander. Who knows…
Either way, I’m so excited to have a romantic weekend away with my love!! If it doesn’t happen, I’m sure he’s got something better up his sleeve. I just need to keep my crazy girl brain in check!

We leave in 2 days and I am beyond excited to spend a long weekend away with my hunny!!
Some friends of ours just got engaged last night, so that pretty much put the brakes on me thinking my BF will do it. I’m thinking if he was planning to do it, he might not now. Which is totally fine. Now I don’t have to be all crazy and nervous!!! I never thought I would be happy about thinking he WON’T do it. LOL!
But, just in case…. I’m going get my nails done really nice!

@cristieg: men are obsessed with the surprise element of a proposal its their one time to pull out all the stops! He prob thought you were onto his surprise and you and your friend had been discussing it.
i hope it does happen for you but if not nice nails and nice vacation!! Yay
