Bees! I just realized Christmas is not far away (scary thought!)
Just wondering if you and your SO have been communicating about engagement and are sure you are getting engaged before 2013 is over?? According to my SO’s brother, mine wanted to propose to me last Christmas but we had only been together 9 months at that point and thought he would freak me out, (he wouldnt have!) so he decided on a diamond necklace instead.
My birthday and our 1 year anniversary came and went, but we decided it would be best to get engaged around the holidays of 2013 instead. He said he still wated me to be suprised though, so I dont know exactly when, I just know it will be before 2013 is over.
I have been so busy with summer and the start of fall I have pretty much forgotten about it honsetly…now that we’re getting closer I am starting to freak out!!
Happy Soon- to- Be -Enagaged to all the Holiday Bees!

@Aklove: Congrats on your upcoming engagement!
I do not know 100% for sure that we will get engaged around the holidays but I would be really suprised if it didn’t happen as we are both on board for getting married in May. He has said that it is coming but he hasn’t explicitly said by the end of 2013.
I really hope it happens before the holidays are over so I can have a Miracle on 34th street moment of having my ring sparkle on the tree!

Yes, congrats to you!
AND….I don’t *think* it’s going to happen but I’m always hopeful that it’s going to happen hahahaha!!
I honestly do not think it’s going to happen until summer of next year. I know Mr VB wants to propose but is waiting on school to finish and to get a job. He heard back from another job that isn’t interested right now so UGH UGH I do know that if he heard back from the job and was allowed to graduate, then it could be as early as Dec…just doesn’t seem likely right now!

@Aklove: Its a total possibility! BUT of course not 100% sure! He has mentioned couple of time that it will be before the end of this year. But i dont want to get my hope up lol so i may enter 2014 with a fiance!!! which would be perfect but who knows lol

If this thread were up yesterday, I would’ve said yes. I had been thinking he would propose before the year is up, and had been dreaming of a Christmas proposal for sometime now. However, SO gave me a timeline last night, by Spring Break.

@Aklove: Congrats! How exciting!
I really know that it won’t be happening anytime soon…but at the same time, I have NO CLUE when it would happen either, and I’m hopeful anyway….so I voted for the 2nd option (having no idea but being hopeful anyway). Last conversation two months ago my SO said he wasn’t ready and I highly doubt he is ready yet…but that doesn’t mean I’m not still hopeful he might be ready by the holidays!

The ring is in the safe and I think it is happening THIS WEEKEND! I thought I was going to have to wait until Christmas.
I am so distracted it is awful. I can’t wait for Saturday!

I am almost certain that he is going to propose by the end of Thanksgiving week, while we are on a semi-vacation. I don’t know though. It depends on when the ring is completed by, since it is a custom order.

Only 63 days till Christmas and 70 days until new year! So all the best of luck to you!
ive been told not in 2013 so… It’d be a waste of energy to get my hopes up. But I *am* still excited for 2013 to end since he hasn’t said no to 2014 yet haha 🙂

Me me!! Its going to happen in 2013 (which I have known since JUNE!). Time is ticking down, and I am so excited to see how its going to happen. He has had the ring since April, which is driving me crazy, but I’m so happy that my waiting time is almost up.

@Aklove: I am about 95% sure it’ll happen by the end of the year, if not in January so I’m excited but also note *sure* 🙂

@Aklove: The funny thing is I normally wouldn’t expect it on the holidays, but he has made it clear before he will not do it on a birthday, Valentines day, anniversary, big family gatherings, etc.
UNTIL… he asked me last weekend if we could spend Christmas day alone just the two of us…
Holidays can be hectic with BOTH of our parents being divorced and all 4 live super far from each other. So I think he just wants to relax that day but the overanalytical part of me thinks he wants an intimate proposal! LOL We’ll see!
His words: “I just want to wake up Christmas day next to you and not have anything to do”

I would have said absolutely not a few days ago, but something strange is definitely going on with my SO’s Christmas shopping. I wrote about it on this thread:
I still HIGHLY doubt it, but a girl can hope !

@Aklove: I have always told my SO I DO NOT want a Christmas engagement. But we have plans to get married next spring..So SO planned to buy a ring around August. i thought we’d be engaged by now! But he is buying the ring this week.. And by the time it’s finished, it will be mid-November.. And I have no idea how long it will take for him to propose. So i might end up with a Christmas-ish proposal anyway. Oh well!

@Aklove: Oh My! Lucky you. 😉
I’m not sure it’s going to happen by the end of the year/holiday time, but I know it will happen before April.
I think my SO is waiting until I am done with this semester of grad school– it’s my last semester of classes and having to be away from home for part of each week. I hope he does it over the holidays, though– he has the ring already!!!
