Aww! This totally reminds me of my engagement. Fiance bought the ring at a store near my parents’ house, so they picked it up when it was ready and brought it down for him at my birthday dinner a few weeks later. My mom handed off the ring to Fiance and spent the rest of the evening like, white-knuckling the table and giving poor Fiance a lot of nudges and meaningful stares. Finally she was just like, “are you going to propose or what?!” *facepalm*

He wound up proposing the next morning when it was just the two of us. He didn’t want to make a big production of it in front of my family and I think he felt a lot of pressure from them to do it now, now, now! I bet there is a proposal in your very near future… Just give him some breathing room and tell your parents to relax a bit. 🙂 it’s natural for them to be excited and anticipatory! But your soon to be fiancé probably doesn’t want to propose when he’s put on the spot like that… Even unintentionally! 😉 

Just relax, breathe and get those nails ready!

I would do whatever you need to do to relax- bubble baths, mani-pedi, a good run, etc.  Just know it is coming and embrace it!
