I’ve been following the boards for sometime now, and have been inspired to signup. Wanted some advice from some fellow wedding bee’s…
I’ve been with my boyfriend for over 4 years, we’ve both talk and know that marriage and a family is in our future. Recently I’ve learned he bought a ring…i really wish i didn’t know, but he did pick my brain on style, etc. He bought it almost 2 weeks ago, and the wait is killing me! I feel he’s going to do it soon, as we have plans to see my family and his family in a week.
I need distractions, for the last two weeks, this is ALL I can think about…please help!

You are going to be FINE. Believe me I know how you feel! Try to focus on all the things you want to get done before you become engaged maybe you need to clean out your closet or do something nice for your SO. Plan some fun dates and enjoy your time as a girlfriend it will be over before you know it!!
My SO said we’ll be engaged by mid June at the latest (though lately, he’s been saying mid May!!) So only a few weeks left of waiting for me. It is such an exciting time don’t take it for granted!

fkay: ugh, I feel your pain. I found out that my bf bought my ring a week or so ago. He is entitled to 2 mock ups prior to receiving the real thing. But i have no idea how long it’ll take. I also wish I didn’t know…because naturally, it’s the only thing I think about! I guess all we can do is to be patient and wait and try to enjoy the thrill Of it all!

fkay: Yes you are very lucky. You have only two weeks to go. Get that mani honey! Make sure the nails are pretty.
Borrow some books from a library and read, you will see how fast the two weeks fade away.

That wait pain is the worst! He bought my ring last April…or was it May? Anyway…I didn’t get it until March 30th 🙂 Granted family illness and stuff kept us from getting engaged last year but knowing it was around the house was killer.
