So, same time last year I’m pretty sure I wrote a post about how SO and I were about to go on a camping trip and that I was hopeful for a proposal. Needless to say it didn’t happen, but it was ok we had a wonderful vacation. Well, here we are again about 10 days out from another camping trip, and I really had to expectations of anything happening, but these last few days SO has been dropping hints like crazy, so I’m trying really really hard NOT to get my hopes up and to keep my mouth shut about it just in case he has something planned. AH.
The other day he left a popsicle stick on the table when he went to work, and later sent me a text to ask if I had seen it. He told me to read it, and it said, “How did the bell ask his girlfriend to marry him? He gave her a ring!” This made me, “aww,” I thought it was cute that it made him think of me.
Yesterday I sent him a subtle (cough, cough, yep, subtle…) text that said, “Definitely not daydreaming about a sunset proposal on the beach. Nope, definitely not.” He sent back, “Well you know we are going to be on the beach in a few days. ;)” And later that day he sent me another message that said, “Hey, I know where your ring is.” I asked if he had previously lost it and he said, “No, I’m just teasing you. But not in a mean way, in an I love you way. :D”
So basically this could all be nothing, but he’s been bringing up engagements a lot lately, especially in the past few days. I’m going to do my damndest not to get my hopes up, but I’ll make sure my nails are painted for vacation juuuust in case.
Breathe in, breathe out. Woosah.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! Even if it doesn’t happen you’re going to have a fabulous vacation with your amazing SO! I don’t know how he normally acts, but if my SO were to start dropping hints like that I’d definitely think a proposal was coming. That popsicle thing is so cute! I love those little jokes.

@discodance: Thank you! I’m definitely looking forward to the vacation with or without a proposal! I’ve been counting down for the past month! 🙂
@MapleMoose: I’m doing my best to contain myself. I really won’t be disappointed if there isn’t a proposal, but with all signs pointing to yes it’s hard not to get excited!

Thanks everyone! I’m feeling a little less crazy for being hopeful!
@sweetpeony: Oh, I know! I’m not saying anything IRL, just getting it out on the Bee so I don’t let my crazy out elsewhere! I’ll be fine if we don’t come back engaged, although I will have to talk to my SO about teasing if that happens! 🙂
