- Wedding: July 2014
For why I think I am crazy skip to the bottom!!
Ok so I will start with the back story my SO and I have been dating 4 1/2 years I am 24 and he is 26 ( I accidently hit the 7 instead of 6 in my last post) I have been in waiting since the day I graduated college 2 years ago come Aug . While my SO is the most amazing man I could ever ask for he has made me crazy!! He says he wants to spend his life with me forever but he always hated the idea of marriage …….His parents had the worst divorce I have ever heard of… Well I have been working with him and these feeling for about the past 2 1/2 years and he knows how much getting married means to me. So after a big argument about after 1/2 a year of waiting I told him we need to move on if marriage was not in his future (Its something I see in mine and its not going to change) He told me he would do anything not to loose me. Mind you this was a year and a half ago!! Well we set a timeline I told him before I would move in with him I needed a ring …So when he and I moved in last sept I thought it was coming but then no ring. I kept my cool . My birthday came in November no ring ….Christmas came he told me he got me something I would love…..(yes its really going to happen so I thought) he bought me a blueray player with the whole BR Harry Potter set (btw I love it great gift just not what I wanted) Then came our 4 years in march it had to be coming right? At this point I am nagging him this is our last big fight about it I told him to figure this stuff out by the end of 2013 or I am done( I mean that too) I did not mention marriage again after that. Well this May my SO’s cat that he has had 12 years died in our arms It was horrible it killed him and I hurt so bad seeing him like this I cared for him every day as he grieved. About a week later he told me he knows getting married is ok for us! He said his whole life he never felt the love that we have with each other between his parents! I was filled with joy he finally got what I have been telling him for 2 1/2 years (we are diff from his parents). Two weeks ago we went to look at rings for the first time. His mother when she found out gave us his grandmothers ring its stunning but sized very small and in bad shape. We have thought about getting a new band but this ring is just so pretty. I know for a fact he is picking the ring up from the jewelers tomorrow!!! Stupid boy left the receipt in the kitchen .
This leads me to my question. I think this is the weekend, so today I went out to find the perfect dress to be proposed to in ! Has anyone else done this or am I the only crazy one here! I must have tried on about 30 dresses and went to 7 different stores in different locations! Seriously is buying a dress to be proposed to in is it out of control crazy! I feel like I am just so ready for this I am out of control. I have even talked to a photographer for engagement pictures and had them pencil me in for late July. I feel like the only things I have not done is put down deposits on venues haha!
Well if you guys are feeling like you going crazy in waiting let me know so I don’t feel so alone!
