Well ladies, I’m getting myself all excited/worked up about him proposing so I need you to keep me sane!
It’s my birthday this week and I just found out that my bf is taking us skydiving in the Wine Country this weekend (amazing!) and then we’re spending the night at a great hotel on one of the vineyards.
He asked for my Dad’s permission back in March so needless to say, I’ve been getting worked up everytime something special comes around- Am I setting myself up for heartbreak again? Oh dear…

aww, I totally understand. I think it’s great that you’re excited and eager (ME TOO!!!). The issue I run into is that I am terrible at hiding disappointment, so if I set my expectations too high and they’re not met, I ruin the day that’s supposed to be special! My goal lately has been to try to focus on how really truly amazing and wonderful whatever we are doing is, rather than try to guess about when he’ll pop the question. You don’t wanna miss out on the fun of your bday because you’re distracted or annoyed that he hasn’t asked. Basically–there’s no way to know whether he’ll do it or not. If you could know, it wouldn’t even be as fun. I hope you can relax and enjoy! I hope, though, that this is your week 🙂 Happy birthday!

Just focus on the fun things you are going to do! I mean it sounds pretty freaking amazing! Maybe squeeze in a massage or bump up your work out routine so you can find an anvenue for your energy! Relax! Happy birthday!

@DDurango: I just wanted to send some support…I know it’s natural to get worked up, so I HOPE he pops the question soon!!
BTW: Your wedding date is my brithday 7/14…you said your b-day is this week, when? Mine is Wednesday!! Happy early birthday, even if he doesn’t become your FI this week, you know you’ll have a lifetime of birthdays to come as HUSBAND and WIFE!!

I know the feeling… try to focus on the fun time you are going to have with you man and if he pops the question, great, if not… then you still had a fabulous time with your man!
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you though! Happy Birthday!

Thank you- you’re all so sweet!
@diva81esq – It’s my bday on the 14th as well! I just put our wedding date as 7/14 because it’s my birthday and it was a required field. I keep telling myself that he’s not proposing this weekend…… But let’s be honest- my nails will be done just in case 😉
Anyone else have a story where they thought he was going to propose but he didn’t? I need some reality checks pleeeease!

Oh girl I say go ahead and get excited!!! You know its coming at some point, so if you get your hopes up only to not get your ring this weekend, that’s okay, you’re still gonna get it soon! I DEFINITELY can’t offer you any sort of “reality check” cause those weekend plans suuuure sound proposal-worthy to me!! lol, hoping for the best!!

Oh geez, now I’m REEEEEALLY getting excited!
So yesterday was my bday- We had a romantic dinner out by the water and polished off 2 bottles of champagne by the end of the night (we relaxed on the couch for hours and some how finished them both 😉 lol) ………….Eventually I started teasing him about how he can’t keep a secret because he always has to buy my present the day-of (whether its christmas, my bday, etc). If he buys it earlier, he always gives it to me early because he gets so excited to see my reaction.
Anyways, by this point, we’re both feeling the champagne and he lets it slip that he’s kept a surprise from me for the last few weeks (with a big grin on his face). I immediately realized I didn’t want him to spill the beans IF it was the fact he was proposing this weekend. SoOooOooo I played dumb and said “Yep, you did a great job keeping the sky-diving trip a secret! Alright, let’s call it a night and go to bed…”
I think this weekend is it ladies! I have officially stopped any snooping, dropping hints, bringing up engagement, etc………….. The next 2 days I’m just going to enjoy the excitement and make sure I have a great manicure 😉
