Have gotten engaged over the Thanksgiving holidays, or are expecting a proposal over the Christmas holidays?
I’ve noticed a TON of posts in the past few days about new engagements and bees who’ve found out that their SO has asked their parents for permission to propose or found out about a ring.
So just curious- how many of you got a Thanksgiving proposal or are expecting a Chrismas proposal?

All the proposal stories have really gotten to me, and SO has noticed a slight increase in my “So… what do you think of dresses like this?” and “You know, I don’t need a real diamond, these simulated ones from Asha are really nice…”
And because we’ve been to three weddings in the past three months, he’s made the comments, “Well we’re going to have the best wedding!” He’s so sweet. But gosh I’m getting impatient!!!

The ring is bought, so all he needs to do is propose and make things official. We’re long distance though, so there is only a small time frame of which he can propose. I’ll be there mid December through the beginning of January. I told him I want it to happen on Christmas or earlier so that we can actually have some time together as an engaged couple before I leave, and he agreed.
So, by Christmas I will be engaged! 😀

I might get a proposal this year. Our timeline is February, but I’m pretty sure he bought the ring, and we’re going on a trip for our anniversary in a couple of weeks, so… fingers crossed!

@Cornmuffin09: Hehehe. My dad said when he and my mom went to look at rings, she started off on the super super cheap end of the case with the teensy tiny diamonds and CZs.
He was all amused, and was like, “Picking a cheap ring isn’t gonna make it happen any faster.”
And she was like… “OH! Well in THAT case…” and moved over to look at the pricier rings. XD

@rachelmichelle: Hahaha!!! If things work out for him like we’re hoping, then it won’t change anything (since there would be a $20k signing bonus with the army). I have pretty much no hope of getting engaged before next Summer but a girl can dream… and those emerald cut ashas are so so pretty….
But I think I’d probably still stick with an asha even with that bonus, because then I’d make him save it for the wedding! Haha!

We have the setting and stone (bought seperately) IN THE HOUSE! Kill me. He’s waiting for our insurance comp to confirm its insured before getting it set. He feels safer with it in his secret hiding place which is fine by me! I have a feeling it’ll be soon. Maybe Christmas, New Year, but definitely in the next 2 months. 🙂
Good luck bees!

I voted for the Christmas proposal (because thats when I really want it!) but in reality it could be as late as February.

He took steps over Thanksgiving break (talked to my parents, I have no idea about the ring) but he just doesn’t seem like he’s planning on a holiday proposal. It could happen anytime from mid-december (the next time I’ll see him) through March (the end of his timeline). Hopefully it happens over the holidays though!
Good luck to all the waiting girls! I’m hoping to hear LOTS of holiday proposal stories!

I voted “I’m pretty sure I’m not getting a proposal this Christmas” *sigh* Just a few more months. The Mayans better not be right.

I’m not getting one this Christmas, our timeline has us getting engaged sometime next year, probably by Sept or so.
I’m sort of glad my timeline puts me out of the running for ANY Christmas, because I would be WILD right now with all the commercials and romantic holiday music oh man.

I don’t know. Sometimes I’m optimistic and other times I think Santa might be more likely to ask me.
