Thought you bees would appreciate this one! Saturday night my SO took me out to the nicest restaurant in the city and then to the ballet (I’ll brag a little, he did such a good job and picked amazing seats, he said he researched online the best place to sit). This was part of Christmas present and I was beyond shocked, because my SO has never done either of those things in his life and I never thought he would want to! But even though this was the best/most romantic date I’ve ever been on I knew not to expect a proposal.
When we got home I was in the bedroom and he was in the hallway between the laundry room and kitchen yelling for me to go to him because he had a surprise. I thought he had made me a drink, but when I got there he started digging through the laundry basket. My heart stopped and I thought – this could be it, he could have hidden the ring at the bottom, OMG!!! And then the man pulls out a pair of my socks and says proudly – look I washed these for you! Awe, thanks babe. Ha ha ha! I couldn’t help but start laughing!
On a good note, when I opened my laptop that night and it sounded like it would blow up at any minute, SO said when we combine our finances we can save to buy me a new laptop (I’m a graphic designer and need a new MacBook, which I can’t afford right now.) I said, oh so great, in about 10 years I can get a new one? And he said – I think I’m closer to taking the next step in our relationship and proposing and stuff than you think I am.
Not sure what that means, but it definitely renewed my excitement for this whole waiting thing! We picked out the ring in July and I thought it would have been by now, so I was starting to be “over” all of the anticipation.

@ceemarie7: Lots of GOOD NEWS in this post, even if you cannot SEE it.
Ok, lets count what I saw:
1- Romantic Date. Man takes lady out on a romantic date the type that she might enjoy more than him
2- Man does SOs Laundry
3- Man sees that SO needs a new Laptop, and comes up with a plan to purchase
4- Man discusses plan to combine finances
5- Man talks LONG TERM… and getting ready to propose
QUESTION: What do ALL of these things have in common ?
ANSWER: They are ALL considerate things that the Man has does solely for the enjoyment / happiness of his woman
WHAT THIS MEANS… Man has finally come to 100% realize just how important she is to him, and is ready to tell her… and no doubt the world when he puts that ring on her finger.
PROPOSAL IMMINENT !!
1 Day to Christmas Eve
2 Days to Christmas Day
8 Days to New Years Eve
9 Days to New Years Day
54 Days to Valentines !!
Proposal Season… is alive & well.
And someone else is gonna hear Wedding Bells… RING !!

Congratulations in advance! Paint those nails!

Wow, you handled that so much better than I would have. I totally would have burst into tears. He sounds like a great guy and it does sound like a proposal is coming.

Haha, my fiance just gifted me a pair of wool socks, so maybe there is this big SOCK trend we don’t know about going on right now.
Maybe GQ magazine had an article about socks being the best gift for your lady this year? 😛
Anyway, I agree with PP’s – these are all great signs!
Just try to take things easy and enjoy your clean socks! 🙂

Oops, I guess I should have said good “waiting” note! Everything I posted was very good! I know I’m lucky to have someone who always thinks about me and what will make me happy.
Thank you for all of the kind words ladies! I think I can relax now that I finally believe him that it is coming soon!
