@DrD711:  I wouldn’t say SUPER recant but close enough about 3 month ago we did some online shopping he didn’t want to go to a store with me! (boo!) and ever since I’ve been dying! It took a lot out of me to stay quiet! If you haven’t joined yet check out the Shut-it-up pack!

@DrD711:  yes! yesterday my SO and I went to our jeweler and put the final touches on my ring design! the only reason I’m “waiting” is because we have to finish paying for it and having it made, haha. We’ve already 100% agreed that if the ring was in our hands we’d be “officially” engaged. But, let’s be real, we’re basically engaged now.

@DrD711:  Well, I have no idea when it’ll be done or when he’ll be done paying for it. It’ll probably be a few months. But I do have some idea of what the ring will look like.

@DrD711:  Waiting is the worst! I wish I went ring shopping with my SO, but alas, we didn’t. Every time we walked past a jewellery store he would let me stop and look at the window displays, but never let me inside the store. We did this for about a year and a half lol, so I had a pretty good idea of what was out there. I never saw what I wanted until I was searching Pinterest one day and found it! We ordered the ring online in late September and it was delivered early October. Even though I pretty much know what it looks like, and it is currently sitting in our wardrobe, I haven’t seen MY actual ring. I want that first time to be when he is proposing. So I’ve been in the same anxious waiting stage as you for over 2 months now. At the moment I’m just trying to keep quiet, since I know it’s coming in a couple of weeks! I know there are a lot of bees on here who have had to wait longer, or don’t get to have input on their ring at all!

@wanabeabee:  Hi twin 🙂 ring twins yay 🙂

YES! My waiting-craziness has reached new levels! We both had the day off last tuesday, so he suggested we go to the mall to do some shopping and try things on. I couldn’t believe how good it felt to have a sparkly on that finger! Since last week he’s looked a bit online when we’re on the couch watching TV, but secretly I’m obsessively scouring ring websites everytime he steps out of the room. Laughing

I went shopping with my husband for the ring before we were officially engaged.

@DrD711:  It’s tough! I’ve been tempted to sneak a peek several times but have so far resisted. I ruined his initial proposal plan a while back because I snooped. I felt so awful. No more snooping for me!
