So Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were out tonight, and I”ve been trying to implement mr. bee’s plan, and well, we got on the subject of him meetin my family and I was saying how much I don’t like my BIL and he blurted out “Well, I only have to meet him once, then at THE WEDDING!”
Could. not. Stop. Smiling. All night. We are planning a trip to meet the parents around the 4th of July, which is the One year mark, (when we said we would seriously consider marriage) so HOPEFULLY it wil be when he asks my dad for my hand… either way, the timing is perfect! So, fingers crossed!
Ps. I’ve been spending more time on me, and he’s been questioning it, like why I started tanning, don;t come out to visit him at work as often… etc. I THINK IT’S WORKING!
Engagement chicken here I come!!

That sounds awesome…It will come sooner than you think! Ignoring it will always make the proposal come faster.
I hope you’re spray tanning!!! My BFF and Maid/Matron of Honor had a melanoma at 25 (we are 28 now). Caused by going to tanning salons.

With every day that passes I just fall more and more in love with him. And the best part about if that timing works for him and he proposes in July, that would make for a 9 month engagement which is enough time to get married April of 2011 like I wanted!!
And even in my drunken-ness (sorry I posted this while drunk ::bashful face!::) I managed to not mention anymore wedding talk, he brought it up, I said “aww your cute” and went on about my business! YAY ME! lol
I can say he’s been making more and more time for me since I started taking more “me time”. So if nothing else he is being way sweet and we’re going on more dates! I’ll take that over a proposal right now!

Great job implementing The Plan!! And what an awesome attitude you have — your actions are not only hustling up a proposal, they’re making your relationship better and things are more fun for you! How perfect! Keep it up! 🙂

Yay! Your attitude is awesome and I’m happy The Plan is working for you guys! I think the most important part is just enjoying yourself and your relationship, and the engagement will likely follow 🙂
p.s. I’m with LoveSmartDesign, can somone please explain the whole ‘engagement chicken’ thing. I feel like I missed something lol.

Thanks ladies! The remodel on the bar is ALMOST over and I almost went crazy! We’ve been without company in the house for THREE NIGHTS NOW (they come back tomorrow)! It’s been a month since we’ve been alone at home! But he’s been so attentive, He even took thursday off from work to spend time with me, and took me out to dinner! I’ve missed spending time with him so much it’s just great to finally have a few nights to ourselves!
And lovesmartdesign & golden: engagement chicken is a recipe from a magazine (glamour or cosmo) that women make for their boyfriends and supposedly shortly after they propose. You can do a search on here and find a bunch of threads about it…
But sadly, if I were to make it for Jason I would have to smother it with hot sauce and cheese for it to work, he’s obsessed with spicy food and cheese… That would definitely win over his heart! lol
