I am nervous and excited! The ring is sitting out and taunting me. I haven’t peeked because the box is wrapped lol. I know it’s happening on Saturday night, but I don’t know any other details. I am about to pass out from excitement!

Good call on the back-up blouse and extra outfits. You never know what will happen. :)

Hello all, I’m new to the board but I’m expecting a Christmas proposal. I’m overly anxious and it’s only because I know it’s coming but the fact that I have no idea how he’ll pop the question or what the ring looks like adds more adrenaline to my anxiousness. I don’t like surprises or secrets so its literally boggling my mind how well he’s been hiding all information regarding the joyous occasion. According to my calculations I have 5 days: 3 hours and about 35 mins give or take before he proposes…told you I was antsy lol.

@cyclingchick:  Thank you so much and congratulations to you as well. I haven’t even thought about my outfit(s). I’m still trying to pick nail polish, *sigh* I am a nervous wreck, I need to start a checklist.

Nervous Frown

I’m afraid something isn’t going to go right and it’ll get pushed back again. Alas, my nails will be painted.

@ciel:  80% nervous 20% excited – maybe more a  ‘anxiously nervous?’, that’s just my personality though. I don’t want to get my hopes up and be disappointed, so it’s easier for me to cope while being pessimistic vs. optimistic. When it happens, I will be completely THRILLED but until then I have to just chill. We’re leaving for a wedding in Chicago tomorrow and I’m desperately trying to drown any “well maybe….”

I did get excited to an extent last night when we were cuddling on the couch and his mom called and certainly asked a secretive question because his response was a casual, “I’ll have to get back to you on that.” and I did hear her response which was, “Ohhhhhhhh.” Argh. I’m a ball of mixed emotions.

Just counting down and still clueless if he’s going to propose or not. I was even thinking he bought me some other present and NO ring at all:(

Urgh. I thought maybe it was happening this weekend because he didn’t ask me what I wanted for Christmas AND he said he wanted to plan a romantic dinner for sat night. But last night was was bragging about what good gifts he bought me and said he hadn’t gotten around to finding a dinner spot for Saturday. Doesn’t sound like a ring is coming :/ I’m going to just hope for a NYE proposal so I don’t get weepy this weekend or on Christmas.

@Omgbunnies:  Thank you so much. You all are so wonderfully welcoming, I love this board already. Hoping everyone gets their wants/wishes this Christmas holiday or New Years and most importantly a long lasting, happy and healthy marriage to follow. May we all remain forever in love with our S/O’s and they in love with us.

I’m trying not to think about him proposing. The more I do, the more anxious I get, haha. Instead I’m focusing on making him happy for Christmas and his birthday that is two days later. I got him some awesome presents, and can’t wait to see his reaction when he opens up his gifts.

Im so anxious Im trying to convince myself he wont do it until NYE. We have substantial opportunities the 23rd, 24th, Christmas… And then another 4 day weekend over NYE. The only saving grace is that I know where the ring box is, I can see if its there each day before we head out on our adventures… Takes the surprise out of it a little but Im going CRAZY!!
