So a while back I posted about me and my boyfriend moving to UAE. I had some really helpful responses, in this I explained to you guys that we’re both going out there to work, and he told me he wants to get in engaged before we leave! Eeek!
(and for a quick update wanted to let those bee’s know that I have found an apartment next door to my boyfriends- meaning I will live there, and he will live in his, and we’ll have a communal living area. Apparently this is a very good idea for unmarried couples who are still wanting to live together, as this can deter the authorities from the heinous idea that we are ‘living in sin’ apparently. Slight Side eye from me about the inconveniences of this but there you go…we’ll be safer if the worst happens)
Anyway, I wanted to share my excitement somewhere- We’re having a leaving party in August, and him and his mum have been very ‘whispery’ lately.
I walked into their family office to meet my boyfriend after work, Just as I walked in Him and his mum closed down a bunch of windows on the computer screen they were sitting at. They were jeweller’s websites. (!!)
Another big give away was I saw a message pop up on my boyfriends phone from my best friend- His phone was on the coffee table and he was in the shower. I don’t know how to work his phone- Honestly i am a technophobe. It was just a preview of part of the text and it said “If you need help with choo-….”
I was sorting out invitations for the leaving party- and I admit, Ive taken a fancy to some luggage tag type invites that I know alot of destination weddings seem to have. I thought they fitted the idea of a leaving party and they look really awesome.
So Me and his mum naturally got onto the subject of weddings we’ve been to, what colours we like, and other girly weddingy things and she gushed that she would be so excited to help plan a wedding for her son. She nudged me and winked. I just sat there blushing like a idiot and started cracking on pulling string through these luggage tags! I honestly didn’t know what to say, partly because I’m still a bit dizzy from the fact we’re leaving….and on top of that, We might be getting engaged!
I still want it to feel like it was a surprise so I’m really REALLY trying not to go all squealy and revolting about the whole thing by talking about it to anyone else but here.
I don’t really know what the point in this post was… I just wanted to share some excitement that I may be an official ‘Engaged Bee’ soon!
