- Wedding: June 2013
The other night I (totally by accident, I’m not a snoop!) saw some email subject lines that led me to believe my boyfriend is ring-shopping! omg… we’ve been talking about wanting to get married soon and start a family soon, but wow, this makes it hella more real. There was an email back from a jeweller that said something about deciding on a ring setting, and a facebook message to my SISTER (who cannot keep a secret for the life of her, so we’ll see how this pans out, lol…) about ‘needing her to call him because he needed her advice on something important’. Can barely contain squee. holy crap. I totally know I should not be snooping through my boyfriend’s things, and believe me I wish I didn’t ruin the surprise, I could have actually opened the emails and figured out a whole lot more but I just typed in gmail.com on his comp to open my own account, and his account signed in automatically, which is not his default setting… this was a total accident, and I logged off immediately but I couldn’t help what I saw!
Now I’m all a-flutter and can’t help but wonder when this will be… if he brought my sister into it, he must be planning it pretty soon, right? Do boys tend to propose a lot around Xmas? New Years?
I’m so excited!! I’ve been wanting to join here for a while but I felt silly about it when marriage was just a ‘someday soon, in the near future’ thing, but now that I know he’s actually shopping for a ring and getting my family’s advice, it feels pretty darn real. I guess the only thing I’m worried about is my sister not being able to keep it in and telling my family before I get a chance to…. telling my family and friends was something I was really looking forward to, I think about it a lot (yeah i’m a big dork.. but y’know, sometimes there are just those few things you can think about when you’re walking to the bus stop or whatever, that you know will make you smile and put you in a good mood – thinking about how I will tell my family that my bf and I are engaged is one of those things for me). It wouldn’t be the end of the world and I wouldn’t get mad or anything, but I really hope my (well-meaning but easily excitable) lil sis doesn’t take that from me!
