- Wedding: October 2014
So early this morning we were cuddling in bed, enjoying the last few minutes before life began for the day….and out of nowhere SO kisses my shoulder and asks how long of an engagement i would want…..( i was quite taken by suprise….ive been trying to be a very good girl and not bring up anything other than trying to find a new diamond for our center…) I told him I didnt know, our families are on the larger size, so i said maybe 12-18months to plan everything and save enough money and be able to make payments on things…. he said that thats what he had been thinking about it, and would maybe push it to 2 years if i needed it to plan since most would be dyi-ing most of our wedding and paying for all of it ourselves….and we brought up the baby time line….wich to my suprise SO said he wanted to start trying within 6 mos to a year after the wedding to give time to again save money….(much different awnser that the 3 year engagement and 3-4 years before baby) he was talking about how much the wedding would cost, our reception where he wanted to get married….turns out my wonderful man has picked out a couple of songs he wouldnt mind having for our first dance, he has talked to 3 guys (apparently he has already told his 3 best buds that they would be his grooms men and told his best friend from childhood that he would be his bestman)…he wanted to know if i had an idea who my girls would be, he wanted to know about the fg and rb, and if i was thinking the same 2 kiddos he was, and he was talking about his mother son dance and what he wanted played….
basically told me that he has alot of ideas on the wedding and that hes been thinking about it alot….he was asking how i would feel if i got engaged before my older sisters second wedding (thats a whole other topic i may have to write about tonight…..maybe in etiqutte)….he asked flat out if i wanted the ring to be my christmas present….i said i wanted him to give it to me when he was ready….and he said he is ready when the ring is ready….
i also noticed that the dates he was thinking of require him to either propose anytime now through at the latest i figured out next feburary…. sooo EEEKK!!! i am trying hard to be a good girl now and keep my big mouth shut! and not start thinking everything is going to be an immenent proposal so i can be suprised…..soo heres to being good! anyother ladies have hopeful updates lately???
