So I have been reading the waiting boards for a while on my cell phone, but it will not let me reply or post for some reason 🙁 Now, I can finally get on my laptop and share some good news!
Me and SO had some friends over the other weekend. We were talking about Pandora radio and how my SO is obsessed with it because he finds the “best songs.” Well, in front of everyone, he goes, “Here’s the song I want to play for out first dance at our wedding.” It was the sweetest song ever (too bad I can’t remember the name now), and he would even point out certain parts where he goes this is definitely about you. My guy is not the romantic type AT ALL, so this really blew me away. So, I of course had to say, “So when is this wedding you speak of??!! (I have been so good following The Bees Plan too, I havent mentioned engagement/wedding in a while). He goes, “Whenever you want, pick a date this year and we will do it.” WHHHAAATT??!! All of our friends were so excited and shocked, I had been waiting for this moment for over 3 years! So I said September, then he goes, “Ok everyone, we are getting married in September, time to go ring shopping.”
I was stunned, amazed. He said, “I have been thinking about this a lot more than you think I have. I have a few songs and other things in mind.” A few days later we talked about wedding stuff for over an hour and he was completely fine with it. We finally decided that we would go ring shopping by the end of this month, and since the dress and planning will take a while, we will have a wedding in prob March of next year. Once he officially proposes, will will go to the courthouse and get married, then plan the actual wedding and reception.
We have told all our families and they are so excited. Sorry this is so long!! Thank you bees for all your support and posts that helped me get through this difficult waiting time!
