@countrygirl12: Give yourself some fun things to do! Get your hair done, book some dates with your friends and just give your two or three things to do for yourself each day! Keep busy!

@countrygirl12: Omg, I am in the same boat as you. Mine has been in the house as of YESTERDAY. I know it’s not coming for another 3 weeks or so, so I have been focusing on my ridiculously hard exam coming up in a week as well as work busy season. I also started planning a trip to Florida for this fall, so I have lots of “other” stuff to look forward to as well.
The key is to really just do something GOOD for yourself. This past Friday, I got a massage, and once my class is done, I will go get a facial as well as get back into the swing of working out. Be good to you, and life will be good to you as well. 🙂

Haha, my FI waited like two months to propose after he got the ring, and I was going nuts!! One thing that helped me was that I asked him to give me a 6 week-ish range so that I could guarantee to have my nails done. He’s very practical, so he was totally on board. That way, at least I had a LITTLE sense of when it was coming.
But yeah, I pretty much went crazy every day knowing he had it! The best thing I can say is, someday you will look back and chuckle at yourself!
(And hopefully friends and family don’t grab your left hand every time they see you, lol. I was like, “Seriously, we will TELL you when we get engaged!”)

My fiance did the same thing! I didn’t know until after he proposed that he’d purchased the ring a couple months before. He was really into the proposal though. He thought about finding the best place and the best time to pop the question so he waited until Christmas when my mom was visiting. I’m sure it’s just as hard for him to wait as it is for you! I think it’s just a sign that you’ll have an awesome, well planned proposal!!!

however, im not gonna lie, when i accidentally found it i did feel a bit sick with nerves- crazy as weve been together so long and i have been waiting for a logn time too, but now its finally almost here im so nervous!!
