Last night a bunch of us went out for drinks and I was positive that, after a few alcoholic beverages, I wouldn’t be able to keep my mouth shut to SO about how much I desperately want a Christmas proposal. But I managed! Very proud of myself! 😀
I’m still not sure if it will happen at Christmas, I hope it does, but if it doesn’t then that’s okay. I am 100% sure it will happen before Feburary and I’m happy with that.
Although today, I was talking about Christmas presents and said that I didn’t really know what to get him, but I did get him something he already knew about (we’re getting massages together) as well as just a little something else.
He then said to me “I got you something, but it’s small” and he had the stupidest, cheekiest grin on his face. Hey – rings are small!!! So I’m HOPING the ring (that is in his bedside drawer and which I haven’t peeked at I swear, because my snooping and finding the receipt was enough stickybeaking for me thank you!) is a Christmas present. That would be the best Christmas present in the world.
We’re also spending a week over Christmas with my family so I’m assuming he is waiting till we get up there to ask my parents. I told him long ago that I wanted him to do that before he asked.
Argh. Dying here of delicious anticipation. And I’m so super glad I didn’t say anything last night. He only gets to do this once and I don’t want to ruin it with my impatience.
That is all – just thought I would share! 🙂
How are all the other Christmas waiting bees doing with keeping quiet?? 😀 hehe

Aw, yay. So excited for you. Well done for not snooping and keeping mum! I’m trying to keep distracted with baking, and decorating, and other Christmassy fun 🙂 (though I doubt I’ll get a Christmas proposal, and right now that’s fine!)

@ladyartichoke: I’m doing the same thing. My bf is wondering why I am so into homemade gifts, cookies, decorating and random crafts…. haha!
@Miss_Blondie86 I am so glad you are managing (if barely!), I found my SO’s ring the other day in his vitamin drawer and although I haven’t opened the box, I made my sister open it when he wasn’t home and check the drawer every day to make sure it is still there. SO WANT TO TELL SOMEONE ELSE THAT I KNOW! But that’s what the Bee is for 🙂

I am just excited and happily waiting until Christmas! I am away for work right now and don’t get home for a couple more days so that makes it a lot more bearable hehe. I’m not in the house with my ring!

You ladies are so lucky you know you have a RING somewhere!! I haven’t even searched our apartment to see if there is a ring tucked away–I guess I’m afraid to look. My SO promised me (and my mom) that he has plans to do it–but wants it to be a surprise. I am secretly hoping for a Christmas proposal too.
@ miss_blondie86: Enjoy the moment….it sounds to me like you’re basically counting down to Christmas!!

I definitely am counting down to Christmas, but am also preparing myself that it may not happen then and he may wait till our big holiday together in January.
I think I might bake tonight! That sounds like a very good distraction!
I have to admit though, I am glad I know that he has it. It definitely has made it easier for me… Even though the anticipation is torture!!! 😀
